“More than just its headliners, Sziget brings together a programme of world music, cabaret, comedy, screenings, workshops, wellness activities, installations, performances and art, as well as boat parties and more at Sziget beach,” a description of the festival reads.

“Set in the heart of Budapest on Óbuda Island, Sziget is a community-built festival and known as the ‘Island of Freedom’.”
