The famous music festival, the Island Festival (Sziget Fesztivál) is held every year in Budapest on the Hajógyári Island in the Northern part of the city, usually in August. It is being held since 1993, and it grow in volume every year. This is originally a music festival, but there are other types of programs recently with so many visitors coming.

You can purchase a daily ticket or a weekly pass in order to enter the island. Prices change every year depending on the quality of the performers, but they are usually around 30 EURO for 1 day and 120 EURO for a week.

It is almost impossible to park your car in this part of the city during the festival days, so we recommend everyone to get to the island by the suburban railway (HÉV), coming from the direction of the Margaret Bridge or Batthányi Square.

For those who wish to visit the Festival but do not wish to spend the night on the island in a tent, we have collected the hotels which are the nearest to this place.
