Festivals around Budapest in 2022

Singh, Pamela 25-05-2022

We all daydream about sipping a cold beer while listening to our favourite band on a hot summer night for almost a year now. Our dream to come true might not be as far as we think. Hungary used to have countless festivals during the year and in the summertime when one ended, another was just starting. Obviously Covid-19 has a big impact on this in the previous 2 years, but maybe this year will be the big comeback for the many big names. In this article we collected the long waited Sziget Festival program list, and some smaller festivals in and around Budapest as well.

Sziget Festival

2022 is the year when we can hop on that party train again, and Sziget is the must-have experience for everyone who is staying at Budapest between 10-15 August! It is not a question, why it is called the Island of Freedom: the diversity of programmes, people and of course music is the driving source, why everyone wants to join the so called 'Sziget spirit'. Among others, there will be such experiences as Cirque du Sziget with jugglers and acrobats, ALL Europe stage with newcomer artists from the whole of Europe, Global Village with musical and cultural workshops from all over the World, Vándor Vurstli with some fair-experience and the Automata Carrousel from Belgium and Magic Mirror with the biggest acceptance and transparency for the LMBTQ community to party without any taboos. You can have more information about the growing number of funny possibilites on Sziget here: https://szigetfestival.com/en/exciting-venues-of-sziget
