Watch: Sziget Main Stage to Showcase Hungarian Musicians: Azahriah, Beton.Hofi, Margaret Island
The Main Stage at this year’s Sziget Festival will feature Hungarian headliners Azahriah, Beton.Hofi and the Margaret Island group, while several other stages will showcase hundreds of other Hungarian acts between August 7 and 12, the organisers said.

The Main Stage will offer an opportunity for Hungarian musicians to use the event as a springboard to enter the international scene, they said in a statement. Azahriah, who has recently filled the Budapest Puskás Aréna three times on three consecutive days, is slated to draw an audience of up to 70,000.

Beton.Hofi will perform a show with the world renowned Rajkó Gypsy Orchestra and Margaret Island celebrating its 10th birthday will put on a multidisciplinary act with guest dancers of Szeged Contemporary Ballet.

Celebrating Peace, Love And Unitiy Since 1993

“For 30 years, the old railway bridge across the Danube to Óbuda Island has, for six days each August, become a portal to another world. A place where gigantic inflatable sculptures of heads made from eyes rise from the earth.

Where sci-fi corridors of light guide you to arenas rammed with drag queens and late-night ravers. Where the world’s greatest circus performers, dance troupes, global ensembles, and theatrical extravaganzas come together; the biggest stars and most exciting rising acts blast brilliance from the main stages. (...)


This is Sziget, where any prejudices and bigotries are left on the mainland and 500,000 annual visitors from across the world are encouraged to live their true selves during one of Europe’s biggest, most inclusive, and most broad-minded festivals.”  - IQ Magazine #122 Edition
