The Sziget Festival is one of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe. The festival is held annually in August in Budapest, Hungary and takes place on Óbudai-sziget ("Old-Buda Island"), a leafy island of 108 hectares (266 acres) on the Danube. Currently it attracts more than 1000 performances each year.
The week-long festival has grown from a relatively small student event in 1993 to become one of the best known European rock festivals with about half of it's 500,000 visitors coming from outside Hungary.
