It takes place each year in Sopron, a city in the Western corner of Hungary, very close to the country's Austrian border. A look at the map shows that it is at the meeting point of countries like Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, making it especially easy to access from all these countries. The

Blasterjaxx joins the lineup of the 2019 Sziget Festival's Bacardi Arena in a last-minute change after Maurice West had to cancel his gig at the venue.
