Sziget was invented to be a community area, a place to meet and get to know people. Since the first edition the festival tried to live up for this mission, providing activities for bigger and smaller groups at the same time.
The fun starts already before Sziget, since the organizing crew also decided to start Mission:Szitizen, an international game with the aim to inspire the most dedicated Sziget fans to show the whole world what they got.
The anthem of this year’s Sziget Festival is the new song „Together” by Ivan & The Parazol, an up-and-coming Hungarian rock’n’roll band that incorporates everything a 21st century beat music needs. An important mission of Sziget is to support talented and promising Hungarian bands to get into the international music vibe.
New names were added to the always colorful line-up of Sziget. All genres will be covered this year as well, so Deadmau5, Axwell, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks, Crystal Fighters, Anti-Flag will be great add-ins to the previously announced acts like Queens of the Stone Age, The Prodigy, Placebo, Imagine Dragons and many more. Tickets for discounted ‘Advance round 1’ prices are available till 30 April.

Build the symbol of the Island of Freedom, design a sculpture, installation or decoration that could be a cool element of this year’s Sziget Festival! Sziget will look visually attractive as always and to enhance this, artists and artistic groups can apply in three categories to make quality and unique works.
