STRAND Festival

STRAND Festival was launched in 2013 as the main event of Nagyon Balaton, which is a comprehensive tourism development concept in the Balaton region of Hungary. STRAND Festival attracts thousands of festivalgoers every summer to the beach of Zamárdi, which has one of the most spectacular views around Balaton. On the stages you can see both Hungarian bands and international stars. 

We can truly say that STRAND has become the most popular summer-closing festival in Hungary, featuring a wide variety of events and activities for all ages.


In recent years, the very best artists from the Hungarian music scene have performed there, and alongside them many huge international stars have rocked the stage, including Thirty Seconds to Mars, Bastille, John Newman, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Fall Out Boy, Rag N Bone Man, Simple Plan, Hurts, and Papa Roach. It was also STRAND Festival that hosted the most amazing Hungarian music awards ceremony for two years, the Petőfi Zenei Díj.


STRAND also provides great activities during the daytime, when festivalgoers can choose from sports and team games, art projects, meet-and-greets, talk shows, and workshops to add even more colour to their fantastic festival days.
