The Sziget Festival, also called ”The Island of Freedom”, is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe and . It is at the same time one of the most unique festivals on the planet, as the festival takes place on an island (Óbuda) in the middle of Budapest city and lasts for a total of 6 days! In addition, the festival offers an incredibly wide range of different music genres. You will come across pop artists, techno DJs, as well as metalcore bands. In short, this festival has something for everyone and is especially popular among young folks.
One advantage of this festival is that it is right in the centre of Budapest, so it is ideal for a holiday too. Take a few days off after the festival to explore the surroundings of this beautiful city. I can guarantee you, there are plenty of fun things to do: from visiting multiple authentic thermal spas, to a dinner cruise on the Danube river. Walk up Gellért Mountain for stunning views of the city.
