Be a part of it and enter our competition!
We work hard to make the Sziget experience even better every year based on your feedback. Considering your thoughts from our questionnaire in September 2022 (and our own impressions), we have come to the conclusion that we should bring more and more exciting decorations to this year's (and every upcoming) festival. That’s why we bring back the Art of Freedom project this year. The Sziget Art Of Freedom project's creators design the most amazing and unique buildings, statues, and installations, year after year.
Thanks for those excellent creators who entered our Art of Freedom project. Please see here the T&C.
Get inspired by the 2019 Art of Freedom projects, that have came alive on The Island of Freedom.

Up is a therapeutic experience which is built with a concept of an inflatable castle. We can get rid from all the stress and pressure with the help of the music and the tension of lights while simply jumping and enjoying ourselves. As the stress is our biggest problem in this fast and modern world, this year on the Art of Freedom competition we wanted to find a solution with the help of a psychologist to get to the flow-state/condition through the shortest period of time with the help of collecting all the action-mechanisms through our senses. The inspiration of this concept was to re-experience our childhood’s secret “jumpingonthebed” playings where our loyal companions were our fluffy stuffed animals.
At same time 6-8 people can party and play with 14 dummies on-site the Up.

The Vajda High Creative Group has always been very keen on the main social message of the Sziget Festival, which aims to draw the attention on saving and preserving our livable Planet. The installation called Wall Street is built from disposable bottles which will degrade in about a thousand years, and from forever unusable video and audio CDs. They all want to convey this message to the next generations: "Your present is our future and we should already have cherished is yesterday because tomorrow might be too late!"

No one can master the time. This giant hourglass is made of nearly 200 meters of steel plate, symbolizing the finitenesse and endlessness of time. 'Led-sand' flows inside the sculpture, as if time would go away like the shining sand, while, at the end, the whole structure is flooded with white light and time restarts - who knows how long.

The Star-faced shepherd
Designed by: Jap-Yap Team
The basis of our idea was to make such a point on the Sziget festivel, where the szitizen can chill at any given time of the day. The tone of the building comes from hungarian folklore, wich we tried to put into an up-to-date form. The concept is based on a stilized skull, of wich's mood is broken by the colourful graphics.

This installation aims to raise attention to the backsides of the too quick progress in technology. The insane manufacturing of electronical gadgets and the pollutant effects of consumer society are getting much and much disturbing. Electronical waste grows three times faster than any other kind of waste. Built from electronical waste and living off a tree, Elektropus symbolizes the destructive technological progress that devours our natural environment. Don’t let the beast of modern technology to suffocate you as well!

Monumental set up, the meeting of human being and the environment as the symbol of the sustainable future. The set consists of 2 interconnected trees, natural wood, live plants and recycled materials. The white led decor and moving robot lights bring the installation alive, creating an exciting and brilliant atmosphere. We incorporated a steam gate in the structure, providing relief on a hot day.

An all day all night useful, spectacular communal furniture set. Throughout the day it provides a calm, near-natural and comfortable resting place for the tired Szitizens with all the different colors of the rainbow, by night it transforms itself together with the people of the festival. The colorful alternating LED lights are eye-catching and interesting which provide the perfect atmosphere for the festival and uncover the threads' mysterious patterns.
Turntable of chill
Designed by: Jap-Yap
We are a young industrial designer dou, who are constantly looking for new challanges, and this is how come in contact with SZIGET again. The base of our piece is a retro vinyl player, that was inspired by our love of music and the countless emotions it communicates. We wanted to display this in a form, that lets the festivalgoers chill out for a bit in any part of the day. Aside from a confortable place for those who are tired, it is a colorful and interactive place inside the festival. The player has a few interactive buttons, and the vinyl itself can go round-and-round even with Szitizens sitting on it. On the back side of the vinyl cover, that is behind the player, there is a board where the visitors can write (with chalk on painted score) their feelings regarding music and love. The base materials of the installation are wood and steel, the accessories are made of enviromentally friendly plastics. The piece also has moodlighting, so it is a spectecular part of festival even at night.
A fairy town

FAIRY TOWN is a village of tiny wooden houses, where rooftops serve as seats for Szitizens. This group of 5 to 6 pieces of houses encircle a tree, which is also decorated with a string of wood and line. Thanks to the fluorescent painting the glittering village gives a magical view to the by-passers.
