Every year several hundred thousand youths come to Budapest to enjoy the Sziget Festival. The Óbudai Island is filled up with famous artists giving their best so that the people coming from all around the world can enjoy a great week in Budapest.
In 2008 Iron Maiden was one of the hotshots, and for Sziget Festival in 2009 Fatboy Slim, Placebo, Ska-P, Tankcsapda, The Offspring and the Prodigy made crowds come to Budapest. In 2010 Iron Maiden returned again, and several other famous bands and accompanied them. What is for sure is that every year Sziget Fesztival is a highlight of the year and the festival is by many said to be one of the best, if not the best festival in Europe. Do not miss out on it, and here you can find more information about the next upcoming festival.
The festival is getting bigger and bigger every year, and in 2018 and 2018, the number of visitors almost reached 500,000 people. That is crazy for a music festival arranged on a tiny island in Budapest. If you want to know more about it and pay the festival a visit, make sure to purchase your ticket as quickly as possible.
