#1 Become an artist

Sziget can make you an artist too, even if you think your not the most creative person, you can learn to be one! The ArtZone is where you can let yourself free by participating and making your own sculptures. Take a glimpse at the art galleries around, anyone can join even if you have no clue how to use a sewing machine or a paint brush. Szitizens designer will help you.

#2 Free your mind

Rise and shine, it’s time for some physical, mental and spiritual practice: Yoga. Starts everyday around 10 am at the Theater and Dance tent. Don’t worry if you haven’t done it before and to look like an amateur, we all begin somewhere. Yoga connects your mind and body. It benefits your posture, balance, and strength, boosts your energy and can improve your sleep! It’s exactly what you need after crazy partying and sleepless nights in your tent. Tip: try doing it everyday and you will definitely feel the difference.

#3 Test your abilities

Ready to see the world from another person’s perspective? Not just any person, someone who doesn’t have all the abilities such as blindness or someone who is stuck in a wheelchair his whole life. Experience yourself what obstacles a person with disabilities has and get a better understanding about their day-to-day challenges.

#4 Sun + Sand + Water = Beach

The island of freedom is a perfect summer holiday destination. It offers everything, including a beach. It is the season for tan lines, put on your bikini or speedo and take a swim in the Danube. It is the hotspot for recovering and relaxing. Listen to music while resting on cushioned carpets and pillows in the colorful shades, surrounded by artistic decorations and fascinating lights. The atmosphere will rest and recharge your senses!
