1. Full program

Sziget is everything a festival can offer during 7 days: huge stars on the main stages, art, fun and tons of activities all over the island. During the day you can chill at the Sziget Beach, create your own souvenirs at one of the art venues, or just take your time to have some adventures in the city of Budapest! The party already starts in the early afternoon and lasts till the sun comes up again! Prepare your schedule for the best week of 2014 and use the Sziget app to make sure you’re not missing anything!

2. Cheap public transport

The Sziget-Budapest Citypass is a specially designed season ticket for Sziget visitors (aka Szitizens) to explore what Budapest has to offer. It includes free public transportation, free rides with the Sziget boat, free entry to one of the famous Turkish spas and further discounts to spas, museums, the Budapest Zoo and many more. In addition, free transfers are offered between the Liszt Ferenc Airport and the festival venue. Moreover, there is a discount for the tickets to the ferris wheel of the Hungarian capital, the Sziget Eye Belváros and the very own ferris wheel of the festival.

3. Free calls

Festfone is a cellphone service that helps Szitizens to keep in touch with their friends at the festival for free!

Different types of phones and data packages are available from low end to smart stuff.

4. Easy parking

Parking in a big city is always a challenge. The organizers of Sziget have developed several parking packages on the island and in the neighborhood for those Szitizens who decide to hit the road. There are even transfer buses between the festival area and the parking lots. Sziget also strongly supports the idea of carsharing, a great way of saving money, the environment and meeting new friends already on the way to the event!

5. Tents on spot

Sziget offers a special package for those who are up for camping, but would not like to hassle with bringing a tent and camping equipment all the way. After using the camping items there is a possibility to return them and get back a part of the original price.

6. Insurance packages

Szitizens can choose from two packages to secure themselves, so in case any unexpected circumstances happen they will have the solution already in their hand. This is the right option if one might have to cancel their trip for some special reasons, in case of any health related issues on spot, any problems with luggage or getting into any sort of trouble.

7. Guarded lockers

Keeping the most important belongings in a safe place is a great way to focus on the most important job of the week: party. Szitizens have the chance to book guarded lockers and arrive with everything arranged.
