Discounted tickets until 31st July!

Where to stay at Sziget?

Sziget is a long event, which means you do need to make sure you stay at the right place and have a good rest once you take a temporary break from the party (not telling you if this is day or night, you are free to decide it). Luckily this is a huge festival that’s very nicely integrated in the big city that surrounds it. Besides onsite options at the festival, Budapest has also a lot to offer when it comes to easy-to-reach accommodations. Here’s an overview

Kings of Leon at Sziget 2015
