This summer’s Sziget Festival 2017 (August 9-16) is set to be bigger than ever, with an incredible line-up spread over five days on an island in the middle of Budapest, Hungary. Festival goers will enjoy top music acts, from Wiz Khalifa to Pink, as well as a range of awesome summer activities.

Why not make a proper trip out of it? Budapest is one of Europe’s gems. The city is a fusion of East and West, with stunning gothic architecture and a beautiful historic centre. Budapest is known for over 100 natural hot springs, so you can relax in one of the city’s many Turkish baths during the day and party all evening at the festival.

The festival is located on Obudda Island in Budapest, Hungary. The island is to the north of the city centre, on the Danube river and is easily accessible by public transport or taxi from the city centre.
