Sziget Festival

Wednesday 5th - Wednesday 12th August 2020

Sziget Festival in Budapest

Minimum age: 18

Event has been cancelled.
Info: Covid-19

Official Statement:

Dear Szitizens,

We’re very grateful for all of the patience and support you’ve given us through this difficult period.

The Hungarian government has just extended the ban on large-scale events until 15 August 2020, and due to this official prohibition, we are heartbroken to let you know that Sziget Festival cannot take place this year.

Sziget has always been special because of the atmosphere that you, our Szitizens, create and we are devastated that we won’t be able to see you on The Island of Freedom this summer. Sharing an unforgettable week with you is what keeps us going throughout the year and whilst our whole team has been working very hard on preparing for the festival, your Sziget adventure will now have to wait until 2021. As hard as it is, we believe that this decision best serves the safety of all of you and everyone working at our festival.

We would like to ask for your patience whilst we work with our ticketing partners to prepare the arrangements for ticket buyers. We will share all of the details with you by email as soon as we can.

Sziget started out as a small gathering and over the last 28 years has grown to become an unbreakable family of Szitizens from all around the world. Although this year we cannot celebrate together in person, we will always be here for you and we know that the power of our community will help us through this!

We can’t wait to see you all next year on The Island of Freedom!

Remember, love can't be cancelled!

Take care & keep in touch,

Sziget Team


About Sziget Festival

Sziget Festival is seven days of festival on a sunny island in the Danube in the beautiful city of Budapest. But Sziget is more than just a festival: it's a place to meet, a place to make friends and fall in love; where one can spend a week self-abandoned, where parties await the inquirer. Seven days in paradise.
