Sziget Founder Welcomes Expats To Island Of Freedom
Tickets for this year’s Sziget Festival are selling well, organisers told today, and it looks like Robbie Williams will be playing to a full house in Budapest at Sziget next Monday 10 August. We met Károly Gerendai, the Founder of Sziget Festival, and he shared a few stats and some advice - adding he plans to say a few words of welcome to local expats at the start of the event, one of the biggest festivals in Europe.

Gerendai said like last year the Sziget crew expect a record number of visitors in 2015, given the number of tickets sold so far. Last year, all passes sold out in advance and this year he advises expat to buy tickets, especially for 10 August, in advance to avoid disappointment.

“Next week we expect, as in 2014, to host more than 400 000 fans throughout the whole week. This year we managed to restructure the festival area in a way that it can conveniently host an even higher number of visitors, if needed,” he continued.

“We will have artists from 47 countries, and already sold tickets to visitors from 89 countries. So, the Island of Freedom is truly an international place, maybe the most international spot on Earth during this week,” Gerendai added.

The full official, detailed programme is now up on the Sziget website in English, and ticket can be bought online here  - expats are advised to to watch out for any fake passes and play safe by only buying official tickets.

Gerendai also suggested to download the free Sziget app to make it easier to see and do even more during Sziget Festival 2015  - including fun for families too - which runs for a whole week starting Monday..

See you on The Island!
