Southern Shores of Lake Balaton|Kiss Ernő u. 44, Zamárdi, Hungary | Map
The southern edge of Lake Balaton, where the festival occurs, is within the small, picturesque town of ZamÃ¡rdi, meaning a variety of public and private transit options are available to Balaton Sound visitors.
The options for camping at Balaton Sound are mightily eclectic: basic camping, for folks who bring their own gear, is a ten-minute walk from the main festival grounds and comes equipped with showers and sanitary facilities, plus phone charging stations and guarded lockers. Caravan camping, immediately adjacent to the festival grounds, is reserved for RVs and other such mobile domiciles and comes equipped with electricity. Beachside camping, slightly closer than basic camping, is available for an extra fee; and for folks who don't wish to prepare so thoroughly, Balaton Sound offers a variety of ready-made, wooden mini-cabins that sleep up to four and include mattresses. For a fee, available comforts only increase from there.
Balaton Sound offers a variety of festival passes and day tickets (and camping tickets must be purchased separately). VIP packages and other such add-ons are also available. But decide soon, because Batalon Sound always sells out.
