Basic info on the festival not taking place this year, with the options for ticket buyers:
The Hungarian government has banned large-scale events until 15 August 2020, and due to this official prohibition, Sziget Festival cannot take place this year.
Sziget 2020 tickets and festival extras (accommodation, services, etc.) are automatically valid for next year’s edition and it would mean so much to us to see you all there. You don’t need to do anything else. By holding on to your ticket, you have a guaranteed place at Sziget 2021 without any additional costs and can start counting down the days until you experience freedom at Sziget 2021!
If you’d like even more flexibility, we’re pleased to also offer you the option of refund. Get the value of your tickets and festival extras (accommodation, services, etc.) refunded on your festival account from now on. You can create your festival account by clicking HERE. This balance is super flexible and can be used for purchasing for any tickets or other festival extras (accommodations or even food and drinks) for Sziget 2021 and also the two other music festivals organised by us: Balaton Sound, Telekom VOLT Festival. This way you can relax and wait for all the information about next year’s events including date and artists announced and make your decision then.
If the above mentioned option does not work for you / If you decide not to use your balance for purchase, you can, of course, request the balance to be refunded in cash as well. For more details on the process, please sign in to your festival account or read through our refund info page or the FAQ if you have any questions.
