Music is our passion
The first Sziget Festival was organized back in 1993 as a small gathering and has since evolved into one of Europe’s largest music festivals. Each year we strive to bring Szitizens some of the biggest names out there, and host over 1,000 shows across 60 stages, for 7 days straight.Line-up
Szitizens come from all over the world
There are over 100 nationalities represented at Sziget, with people coming from as far away as Brazil or New Zealand. This peaceful gathering of different cultures for the common cause of music, celebration and entertainment is what the Island of Freedom is all about.
Art and Inspiration
While music is an important part of Sziget, art is also a core element. There are multiple venues including a circus, theater, museum quarter and much more. Artists and performers come from all over the world to display their talents. There are also opportunities for Szitizens and artists to work together in order to create memorable and meaningful artwork.

Our Cause: Superar
Sziget partnered with Superar this year, to support the program’s initiative on spreading music to children coming from underprivileged backgrounds. Music is a powerful tool that can help children improve their focus, motivation, creativity and confidence, while allowing them to overcome socio-economic boundaries. Every reusable cup dropped off at a collection point at Sziget, went towards supporting the Superar program.Details
Discover Our City: Budapest
While once you enter Sziget you may never want to leave, we recommend checking out Budapest as well! There are a ton of things to do from sight-seeing and checking out some of the most amazing bathhouses, to eating out at great restaurants, bar hopping between ruin pubs, and dancing through the night at bars and clubs... the possibilities are endless.Learn more
At Sziget, we deeply care about environmental sustainability and development. We try and convey this message to Szitizens in an effort to create a more aware and conscious community. Every year we work on becoming greener and take measures towards achieving such goals.Learn more
