Sziget has loads of other things on offer to festival goers, as well as the music, there is; theatre, dance, classical music, cabaret, performances, films, fine art, crafts, literary presentations, programmes for kids, sports and other free time activities.
The concept of Sziget is as a community area, a place to meet and get to know people to this end a new venue, the Campfire Stage has been announced, providing the chance for amateur and professional musicians to play acoustic songs at the big fire. This stage is also Sziget’s special way to remember Woodstock, the mother of all festivals that took place 45 years ago.
Besides Woodstock, the other important anniversary linked to Sziget 2014 is the fall of the Berlin Wall, exactly 25 years ago. Cooperation with the Berlin arts scene and also a 100 meters long wall – decorated by street artists and the Szitizens themselves – will all serve the purpose to remember this great act of freedom.
Sziget Community Garden will be another venue providing an insight in the world of urban gardens. Sziget Beach was an instant hit in 2013 and the organizing crew is happy to announce that the chill-out beach venue will also return this year. And if we talk about special community areas on the Island of Freedom, we should definitely mention the Ruin Pubs Quarter, introducing some of the most original Budapest bars.
2014 will also see the return of the massive fun activities at the main stage, including the Colour Party, the Flag Party, the Balloon Party, the Beach Ball Party and the Bubble Party. Plus the Sziget Beach will also return this year, as will the Ruin Pubs Quarter, introducing some of the most original Budapest bars.
