Sziget Festival 2019
This event has been and gone.
Sziget Festival is a massive music and cultural festival taking place in Budapest. Begun in the wake of the fall of the Soviet Union as a means to provide arts programming for students, the festival has grown into one of the biggest and most iconic in the world.
Taking over the 266 acre Obuda Island for an entire week each year in August, Sziget offers over 1,000 performances and has been labelled the Burning Man of Europe for its otherworldly atmosphere.
