Sziget Festival

Europe's biggest music festival in the heart of Budapest
Sziget Festival
The Sziget (or 'island') festival in Budapest is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe, and began back in 1993 as a response to the ending of the festival scene as it was under the Communist era. Every year more than 1000 performers take to the stage with over 500,000 people in attendance on the huge island site! The event attracts big-name artists each year with Muse, Rihanna and David Guetta all amongst them.
