World’s best DJs at the lake: Balaton Sound 2021

This is the ultimate festival holiday; at Balaton Sound you’ll find a relax spot and party place in one! Prepare for five days of partying along Lake Balaton with great international artists and dozens of venues and lounges at the waterside. 

On the banks of the largest lake in Central Europe, you’ll start the day enjoying the sun and the cooling water while floating on your inflatable flamingo or unicorn. In the afternoon the first performances will warm up the crowd as a starting signal for the coming night. After a beautiful sunset, the area turns into one big outdoor club with not only world’s best EDM DJs, but also techno- and other underground DJs, urban acts and pop artists. Plus, as if that’s not enough yet, every festival night comes with a smashing fireworks show. 

🚂 – Travel in style: take the Balaton Sound Express from Belgium.
