Sziget Fest plans comeback in 2022

In Budapest

Sziget Festival, one of Europe's largest music fests, is set to return in 2022, organizers tell the Budapest Business Journal.

"Unfortunately, time has run out, we had to decide about this year's Sziget," said Tamás Kádár, the festival's chief organizer. "It is with a heavy heart, but assessing our responsibilities - seeing the many uncertainties, whether in terms of travel, accommodation, hospitality and the role of the certificates of patronage at home and abroad - we have decided to prepare for next year's Sziget instead."

"We are therefore looking forward to the '22 season as we have never looked forward to a festival year before, with plans for events worthy of the 'big comeback' after a painfully long break," he added.

Kádár said that the two years without festivals had made life extremely difficult for organizers, festival-related companies, and workers.
