Some of the most famous musical artists did indeed pass aged 27, however Sziget is a Hungarian music festival, so we can rest assured their 28th birthday is oncoming.
Sziget Festival has hit their 27th year and now published their ‘after-movie’, demonstrating the atmosphere present throughout what the punters affectionately call the ‘Island Of Freedom’.
Having been there myself for their 25th outing, its safe to assert that in Sziget, there’s something for everyone, no matter the taste, how mainstream or otherwise. It’s a Hungarian attraction that brings visitors from over 100 countries including New Zealand, Philippines, Uruguay, Trinidad and Tobago, and Sri Lanka (with the highest number from the Netherlands). Each visitor can also experience portions of unique music, theatre, comedy and workshops via performers, artists and speakers from over 62 different countries.
Despite this year’s appearance from fucking Ed Sheeran (like they say, there’s something for everyone), 2019’s show did also offer sets from much more interesting ‘artists’ worthy of such a label which included the likes of The National, Johnny Marr and Idles.
Sziget’s ‘Wishmachine’ project is now live allowing previous and would-be visitors to submit their dream festival line up for 2020: https://mymusic.
