Summer in Hungary: Sziget Festival

Fanni Kaszás 2019.08.09.

Hungary Today’s new, recurring series ‘Summer in Hungary’ takes a look at some of the best places to enjoy the summer weather and spend your holidays. We will collect some of the most beautiful and fun Instagram pictures, from a relaxing weekend at the beaches of Lake Balaton and Velence, the Balaton Cross Swimming and the Kékszalag Regatta, to rooftop bars, confectioneries, and wild parties at the best Hungarian music festivals. This week we are back with the best Instagram photos from the world-famous Hungarian music festival, Sziget.

The week-long Sziget Festival is held between August 7 and 13 in Budapest. This year, the festival features headliners like Ed Sheeran, Macklemore, the National, the Franz Ferdinand, Richard Ashcroft, Florence + The Machine, Johnny Marr, Twenty One Pilots and the Foo Fighters, while the lineup in the A38 tent includes Frank Turner, Razorlight, CHVRCHES, Xavier Rudd, James Blake, Richie Hawtin and Broken Social Scene. Petőfi Radio-Telekom VOLT will offer on its stage for the first time foreign acts next to Hungarians, such as Gili Yalo, Shake Shake Go, Stella Donnelly and Inspector Cluzo.
