A few years ago Sziget Festival launched what it called the "Love Revolution" which is also reflected in the festival's programs. This year, the "Love Revolution Special" is set to return to the festival's Main Stage, with 10-minute presentations and short speeches every day, which aim to draw attention to the social changes around us and our collective responsibility.

As a guest of Sziget, the Dutch Aynouk Tan will talk about the importance of acceptance. Famous for her extravagant dressing and interactive talks, the queer activist specializes in the relationship between self-acceptance and our sense of identity.

The most famous dancer twins of France, Les Twins will also enter the stage. Laurent and Larry Nicolas Bourgeois have been working with superstars and brands either as dancers or choreographers like Beyoncé, Missy Elliott, Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Gucci, and Prada.

The Superar child choir will be staged again, which captured the hearts of the audience already in 2019. Within the framework of the program also actively supported by Sziget, highly qualified musicians provide free arts education to young people, making sure that music and the positive effect of playing music is accessible to everyone, independently of cultural, religious, linguistic, or socioeconomic background.

In partnership with Music Saves Ukraine visitors will have the opportunity to support the victims of the war throughout the festival and Kazka will also be performing. The Ukrainian band will speak out for freedom and peace in their country. 

On the last day of Sziget, the Catalonian Kamchàtka ensemble welcomes "Szitizens" with a special performance. The name of the ensemble may sound familiar to frequent Sziget visitors, as they already performed at Sziget in 2018, then trying to raise attention to the situation of refugees with worn suitcases and reserved behavior – the world may have changed a lot since then, but organizers still consider social awareness raising about those forced to leave their homes behind and try to start a new life elsewhere.
