Sziget 2013 tickets have dropped in sales between seven and eight percent in comparison to last year, says chief organizer and promoter of Sziget Karoly Gerendai.
The Sziget boss has mentioned some of the reasons for this in statements quoted by The Budapest Times. According to Gerendai,
many big international names are unable to accept invitations because of a lack of time.
He also blames the collapse of Hungarian airline Malev and the fact that not all of its flights have current correspondents for the situation.
Gerendai thinks that marketing needs strengthening, and the article says that organizers have done so by adding a riverside beach, a Colour Party and a circus show, apart from the Sziget Eye, which is stationed in Budapest’s fifth district.
