2. Sziget

Next up is Sziget which is one of of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe. It is held every August in Budapest, Hungary, on its own little island. Referred to as the ‘Island of Freedom’, you’ll want to experience Sziget at least once. The music ranges from hip hop, indie and reggae to pop, electronic dance and alternative rock. It’s got it all.
