Sziget wins best overseas festival at UK award show

At the recent UK Festival Awards, Sziget Festival won the best overseas festival award for a second year in a row.

Tamás Kádár, CEO of the Sziget Festival, said the English are familiar with a rich festival culture and have once again regarded Sziget as the best festival abroad. “It is a special honor considering the festival beat huge global events like the Tomorrowland festival in Belgium,” he said.

At this year’s Sziget Festival, Franz Ferdinand, Richard Ashcroft and headliner Ed Sheeran were just some of the acts to perform from 62 countries worldwide. The 2019 event was the second time in Sziget history when more than half-a-million people were entertained (565,000 people attended in 2018 and approximately 530,000 in 2019). 

“The goal for the coming years is to bring strong headline performances to the main stage of Sziget,” Kádár added.

Tickets for the 2020 Sziget Festival can be purchased on the official website.
