Sziget 2022

The Sziget community was founded in 1993 to create a "temporary dream state" that could become a centre for the meeting of cultures in Europe. Over the years, Sziget has grown in popularity and reputation, and today it is one of the most popular and best-known Hungarian brands in the world.

Sziget is synonymous with cultural diversity. In recent years, the event has attracted more than 500,000 visitors in just one week, with guests from more than 100 countries around the world coming to Budapest to enjoy hundreds of events that showcase a wide range of genres.

 

Sziget is also Hungary's largest tourist attraction, generating more than 500,000 guest nights each time it’s held. More than 100,000 foreigners visit Budapest during the festival, many of whom also spend a day or two in Hungary as tourists before and after the event.

 

In addition to the cultural and tourist impact, Sziget also has a significant and quantifiable economic impact. Not only do visitors have a good time and spread our good reputation around the world, but they also spend a lot of money and generate jobs.
