SZIGET FESTIVAL IS BACK! ARE YOU READY FOR THE ISLAND OF FREEDOM?
The Sziget Festival, the most alternative festival in Europe, comes back once again this summer. And of course, this 2016 the festival’s bill will be ideal for everyone who likes music. It will take place in the Ódubai Island also known as “the Island of Freedom” in Budapest (Hungary) from the 10th to the 17th of August. The Sziget festival has more than earned its good reputation with over 400.000 visitors every year.
This year will be the 24th edition and after all this time, the festival is still true to its roots, celebrating not only music, but all kinds of art forms. Back in the day, in 1993, the first edition, called Student Island, offered 200 concerts on 2 stages and 80 movies shown in an open air cinema. The festival was awarded “Best Bill” in the European Festival Awards, and there is no wonder why. This 2016 we’ll have a great variety of bands playing in the Island of Freedom, from rock music like MUSE, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, BRING ME THE HORIZON, PARKWAY DRIVE, MARKY RAMONE, SUM 41, SIGUR ROS and SKUNK ANANSIE to pop or electronic music like KAISER CHIEFS, DIE ANTWOORD, PAVLOV STELAR, DAIVID GYETTA or RIHANNA.
