The premier independent news source about the Sziget Festival in Budapest, Hungary.
Sziget Festival takes place on a beautiful island on the Danube every August and brings together people from all over the world, as well as musical (mainly) and other acts and events. It’s a fantastic multicultural experience, and a lot of people take advantage of it every year.
Of course, music is the most important part of Sziget Festival. Every summer it features some of the most interesting acts in almost every musical genre, going from rock to pop, jazz to world music, ska to techno and anything else you can think of.
That is why we thought a place where all the important news about the Sziget Festival could be shared by Sziget Festival fans, with Sziget Festival fans, was more than necessary. That is the reason why we started Sziget News two years ago.
The reaction we had from you guys, Sziget Festival fans all over the world, turned Sziget News into what it is today – a place where we can all meet and share all about this fantastic experience that Sziget is – be it news, confirmed bands or rumors.
