The Sziget Festival kicks off next week

Legendary British pop singer Ed Sheeran, Florence Welch and James Blake will perform alongside groups that have been at the top of their game for decades, including the Foo Fighters and The National.

One of the most popular tourist attractions to take place in the summer, the Sziget Festival will be held between August 7th and 13th.

As always, founders Gerendai Károly and Gábor Takács curated a program striking the perfect balance between the latest, most-exciting acts and sets by eccentric, emerging, lesser-known bands.

For those with a penchant for something more niche and subversive, shows by Glass Christina, Fjaak or Fakear might be the best starting point.

As usual, there will be no shortage of other activities either. Circus shows, acrobatic displays, art, and design exhibits, yoga classes, transcendental meditation sessions and a lot more will be awaiting those eager to get away from the hubbub of the festival.
