Authentic Sziget vibes: VOLT Festival 2021
In the Hungarian town of Sopron, close to the borders with Austria and Slovakia, VOLT Festival marks the beginning of the summer. A bucketlist festival for the nostalgic Sziget fan; as visitors from Western Europe are still quite rare at VOLT.
VOLT once started out as Sziget’s little sister, but for many Hungarians this festival has grown into an indispensable phenomenon at the beginning of the festival summer. In terms of atmosphere, colourful decoration and side program with street theatre, art, culture, sports, games and a funfair, the festival has many similarities with Sziget. Not surprising, considering that both festivals are products of the same organization. Although until recently the line-up mainly consisted of Hungarian acts, nowadays you’ll find a great selection of international rock and pop artists at VOLT.
