There can be no doubt that of all the arts, music is the one that plays the biggest role at the Sziget Festival, a celebration held every year on Hajógyári Island in Budapest. The organisers seem to consistently outdo themselves, featuring an amazing line-up of internationally renowned performers. No wonder, then, that just about everyone feels like becoming a true Szitizen for a few days. In recent years, artists such as David Guetta, Rihanna, Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Green Day, Pink, and even Prince have played on the island; almost every musical trend has seen some of its greatest representatives perform on stage here, much to the delight of an audience appreciative of the varied and colourful styles of music.
