Sziget 2007

July 25, 2007

Hungary, Budapest, Obudai Island
August 8-15, 2007

Sziget Festival is celebrating its 15th anniversary with its best ever line-up and a concert from Hungary's LGT on the eve of the festival. True to Sziget tradition, there are loads of other things beside music… Theatre, dance, classical music, cabaret, performances, films, fine art, crafts, literary presentations, programs for kids, sports and other free time activities — basically everything that makes Sziget a unique event in the firmament of international festivals. The 15th anniversary event takes place between August 7 and 15 (including 'day zero').

Services on the Sziget

To provide the most comfortable entertainment for festival-goers, Sziget is offering a whole range of facilities and services from laundry and left luggage to day care for kids and a post office. ATM machines are available on the site, and you can pay for entry by credit card at the ticket booth next to the entrance of the festival. There is a pharmacy, a lost and found, a safe deposit, a 24-hour medical service, a 'language first aid tent' (a multilingual information centre), information desks and several other services that can make a visitors' week on the Sziget more comfortable. Organisers encourage festival-goers to take advantage of public transport, and they also provide shuttle buses, ferries to Pest and Buda and a taxi service with discount transfer prices for the Sziget visitors. A rent a bike service is also available on the island; moreover you can leave your own bike at a designated bike shed, where if necessary, you can ask for small repairs. Besides the information desks, this year new information boards will help you find your way around, and you can also turn to the 'mobile' information stewards. This year there is also improved lighting.

As for food, the catering areas introduced two years ago remain, which means that five such culinary centres will serve the visitors. These dish out a great variety of food from hot-dogs, doughnuts, popcorn, corn on the cob, fruit, pastries, kebabs, sandwiches, sea fish, pizza, mixed grills, pancakes, jacket potatoes, vegetarian, health and bio food, dried fruit, ice cream, and many more. The colourful world of the 'nations kitchen' is boosted by Mexican cuisine, Brazilian sweets, Italian pastas and traditional 'ancient' Hungarian cuisine. And the good news is: the milk bar reopens this year.
