Posted by Mia Balogh · Jun 19, 2019

In the following compilation, Sziget preceded for example Glastonbury and Rock in Roma.

The guys at European Best Destinations like lists and rankings – and we are quite satisfied with it, because they usually mention Budapest in their compilations (and usually in really good positions).

This time they have ranked the European summer music festivals, and in their compilation, Sziget Festival can be found on the imaginary podium, on the third place. It is only preceded by Earth Garden in Malta and Tomorrowland in Belgium – the latter can be found on the top of the list.

‘The best time to enjoy a music festival is definitely the summer and Europe offers each year thousands of summer music festivals. We have selected for you the top 15 summer music festivals in Europe’ – they write.
