Sziget Festival Budapest - August 2012
Music and fun in the Hungarian capital
Another year, another Sziget Festival – only a few days away, the busiest event of the Hungarian summer will delight international audiences once again. From August the 5th until the 12th the most entertaining island of the capital, Obudai-sziget awaits all generations for a week of music and fun.
The most famous performers will be seen on the main stage, where the festival will host the biggest stars of pop and rock music: Placebo, Korn, The Stone Roses, Snoop Dogg, The Killers; they will be followed by names like Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra, Yonderboi, and Sterbinszky. But other parts of the island will be worth a visit as well, as every genre will be represented from symphonic music to folk songs, from jazz to heavy metal: in this eclectic mix beloved Hungarian artists will perform on a separate stage set up just for them and their fans.
A total of five big stages and dozens of smaller venues will host concerts, parties and games, and as always foreign tourists will be able to taste local meals and drink specialties in many outdoor food tents. Visitors will also be able to try extreme sports, watch films, take part in workshops, learn traditional crafts and talk to the representatives of many world organizations.
