Anna Füge Festivals Leave a Comment

Sziget Festival won in the Line-up of the year category at the European Festival Awards last year, but this year the festival promoters and organizers went further and brought a line-up full of superstars!

If you live in Europe you must have heard about the Sziget Festival which takes place in Budapest, Hungary in the beginning of August. The festival earned two times the Best European Festival title and also became the Artist’s favourite Festival at the European Festival Awards. The whole event is not just famous about its great line-up, but also because it provides space for art, theatre, culinary, entertainment, civil projects and many more.


This year’s line-up is amazing! Kendrick Lamar will open the festival and bring the top hits from his Grammy Award winner and Pulitzer Prize for Music Award winner Damn album. The festival closing will be just as good as the opening, because the Arctic Monkeys will perform the last concert on the main stage of the festival, which means we will get a taste from their new album called Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.


On the rest of the days of the festival the szitizens (this is how the Sziget Festival goers are called) will get female energy from Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey, Lykke Li, Lianne La Havas and Zara Larsson. Which will be supported by the male artists like Liam Gallagher, Shawn Mendes, Nick Murphy fka Chat Faker, Kygo and Bonobo beasides many more.

A wide range of music genres will be represented on this festivals – there will be a dedicated stage for progressive electronic music, Hungarian artists, latin-reggae and world music, classical music and so on. Next to the music programmes we can go to the theatre, to a circus, check out a TED speech or a cool Hungarian movie, chill out in the beach by the Danube, get lost in a labyrinth or go to the Ability Park to get familiar with the disabled people’s life. Sziget festival is like a whole city where you can find anything, most importantly happy people.
