In the Hungarian language, Sziget means island, but in Budapest, Sziget means a festival best described as “an electronically amplified, warped amusement park.”

Festivalgoers at this week-long feast for the eyes and ears, who call themselves "Szitizens," are treated to carnival rides, dance classes, guided meditation, art galleries, performance art, fire and hooping showcases, Tesla coils, lasers and much more. On top of all that, Sziget boasts an all-star lineup of music stars across genres. 2014 headliners included Queens of the Stone Age, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Outkast, Blink 182, Skrillex and Calvin Harris.

Tickets are now on sale here for next year's fest, August 10-17, 2015.
