Rockers and hipsters, grandmas and teens, black and white were “one for all, all for one” amongst the 415 000 visitors filling the 108-hectare island on the river Danube. With a recent facelift, Sziget offered an abundant variety of programs and activities for the festival citizens putting up their nest tent for a week-long party as well as for the daily visitors who were also eager to get a slice of the cake. A long list of upcoming entertainers and A-listers such as The Prodigy, Placebo, Outkast, Calvin Harris were just a few amongst the greatest performers rocking the island and music lovers’ heart in the evenings, while gourmet stalls and bars, ability park, “Sziget-passport controlled” old-school fun-fair, the Islamic style deservedly popular Luminarium, a wedding tent and many more brought chill to the Sziget goers’ everydays.

Undoubtedly this was THE festival of the year, come and check out some quick snaps showing a piece of life on the island:
