As a content creator at the Sziget Festival 2023

The Sziget Festival is one of the most popular festivals in Europe for a reason. Not only can you see your favorite international artists live, but you can also take part in various other activities - all on the beautiful grounds of Danube Island in beautiful Budapest. This offers a great opportunity to capture the atmosphere and events. This year we were on site again and Domi from the marketing team even followed the first 3 days live on social media. In total, the festival lasted 6 days, over 400,000 visitors, 50 stages and at least 1000 acts convinced us that it was definitely not the last time on the "Island of Freedom".

The island of freedom

The Sziget Festival, often affectionately referred to as the "island of freedom" is undoubtedly a place that attracts people from all over the world. The unique combination of music, art, culture and activities makes it an extraordinary experience. From the impressive main stages to the hidden corners where art installations and workshops await festival visitors, it is clear that there is more on offer here than just music. We were able to experience all of this again this year and were thrilled by the diversity and choice that the festival offers. It's not for nothing that freedom is at the forefront, because the atmosphere at the festival is simply special. Colorful, creative outfits and the exuberant atmosphere show that the name of the island is more than accurate. You won't stay hungry and thirsty for long either, with a large selection of food and drink stands was always available. What we particularly liked were the interactive options for organizing your day. Whether yoga class in the morning, a creative art workshop at lunchtime or bungee jumping between the concerts, there was definitely something for everyone to make the Sziget experience unforgettable.
