The Sziget Festival is rocking Budapest right now!

One of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe is the Sziget Festival in Budapest. Every year in August, almost 500,000 people come to take part in this festival arranged at the Old Buda Island in the midst of the Danube River.

Sziget Festival 2018

To entertain this amount of people, there are almost 1000 different artists performing during the festival. Most of the visitors sleep at hotels, hostels and in apartments close to the island, but the most dedicated fans sleep in tents on the actual island. That is very nice if the weather is nice, but if it rains a lot, sleeping in a tent at the festival can be considered heavy pioneer work!

Every year there are several really big names coming to the festival. Some are having amazing events, while there are some big disappointments as well every year. This year, Kendrik Lamar has been considered a giant disappointment, but on the same evening, Gorillaz did a fantastic event.
