5 reasons why Sziget Festival is the music festival of the summer
Scritto da BocconiADMIN il 27 Aprile 2017
- The Line-up
The line-up must be one of the most various and famous of the world. Every type of music is represented. Hip/Hop and Rap with Wiz Khalifa, Danny Brown, Vince Staples or Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The best DJ in the Electronic scene with Flume, Major Lazer or Steve Aoki. The best English band: Alt-J, Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines. Apart from that P!nk, Kasabian, Rita Ora, Rudimental and many others. Basically, the best for every taste.
- The People
Almost half a million people from more than 100 countries attended the 2016 edition, making it legitimate to say that almost the half world was represented at Sziget. This is your chance to meet and make new friends from the other side of the world, all sharing your love of music.
The festival takes place in the beautiful city of Budapest. If you’re not the camping type, then this city is perfect for you: cheap, good public transportation, and tones of exciting things to visit and see (my favourite ones being the Parliament and just the surrounding architectures). Last but not least, with the festival ticket you get a free pass to the Budapest baths. and, trust me, nothing feels better after a full day of dancing, singing and jumping than to pass by the world-famous Budapest baths where you can alternate between hot and cold pools.
- The location
The festival takes place in the middle of the Danube, on the Obuna Island which is rented especially for the festival, creating the sense that you are in your own world and gives you the possibility to relax next to the water. Sziget is also composed of forest to find some shadow if you need.
- The Weather
Sziget Festival is not at all the type of festival where you get cover by mud after 10min outside. It generally very sunny and warm all nights which creates a great festival atmosphere.
