Nearly 120,000 visitors descend on Sopron, the town hosting Volt which lies on the Austrian-Hungarian border, 60 km from Vienna, 200 km from Budapest, 90 km from Bratislava.

Tickets are on sale priced from at 115 euros for a 4 day pass, or 165 euros for a 5-day pass. Day tickets are from 23 to 69 euros.
Gates open at 2pm on Thursday. You can look around and settle into the camping area and take part in a 'socialising' event and sleep in your own tent or wooden bungalow.
There are three places (mobile container units) on the campsite for showering where men and women bathe separately. There are also bio toilets (mobile toilets) and container toilets on the site, which are regularly cleaned and checked.
Sopron is 210 km from Budapest, so you can be at the VOLT Festival in about 2.5 hours from the capital which has good European rail, road, and air links. There are frequent trains leaving from Budapest's Keleti Pályaudvar (Keleti Railway Station) and Déli Pályaudvar (Déli Railway Station) to Sopron, with dedicated trains running to the festival between Budapest and Sopron.
More information will be here when available.
