The Sziget Festival 25th edition is coming! The Island of Freedom, the 7-day non-stop music and arts festival hosts almost 500.000 Szitizens coming from more than 100 countries every year. This year the program will be as coluorful and vibrant as every year, so Szitizens can expect music, theatre, circus, dance and tons of activities. Everyone loves a boat party and to help celebrate the 25th anniversary edition of Sziget festival you can enjoy special boat parties on the river Danube.
The elegant pleasure-boat offers something for everyone: be it chilling in bean bag chairs with the Parliament in the background, or going crazy in a pulsing party on board. Party goers can admire the world-famous panorama of Budapest, the bridges as they pass over their heads, or the hundreds of years old buildings lining the riverside while partying all the way through the capital section of the river Danube.
Guaranteeing comfort all the way, which means that you can board the ship either in the heart of the city (Batthyányi tér) or directly at the Island of Freedom, and after the cruise you are transported by private buses back to Sziget Festival (for an extra fee). The sightseeing boat offers such a view of Budapest, which you have never seen before, and all this while chilling on sunbeds – guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience! The changing views, entertainment programs and the rhythm of house music are breath taking.
This exclusive sightseeing tour becomes an even more complete experience with the special gastronomy and craft beers offered on board. The inner city of Budapest becomes visible from such an angle, which only very few can enjoy.
