Sziget Festival is one of the largest music festivals in Europe. It takes place every August in northern Budapest. It started in 1993 as a festival for students and quickly attracted a more international audience. Since then, Sziget has won the European Festival Award of Best Lineup twice, in 2014 and 2017; for it is not the headliners that make the festival but rather its variety of musical genres.
