Sziget’s big little sister: VOLT Festival 2020

While Sziget has become an indispensable part of the festival landscape, an equally interesting festival but smaller and less known among the international audience takes place elsewhere in Hungary: VOLT Festival.

The festival is set up by the same organization as Sziget’s and that is definitely noticeable. Just like Sziget, VOLT is also known for its atmospheric and colourful decoration full of innovative art installations and a side program with games, street theatre, lectures and films. The many years of festival experience can also be seen in the high quality of booked artists. The line-up used to consist mainly of Hungarian acts, but nowadays the festival manages to catch the biggest rock and pop acts. Because VOLT takes place at the beginning of the summer, it is the perfect opener of the festival season. In addition, thanks to its location, it is ideal to combine with a visit to Vienna, Bratislava or Budapest.

The location

Sopron, Hungary

Sopron is not very big, but there is plenty to do and see. The city offers some really nice wine- and beer bars, as well as local restaurants. From Sopron the festival can be reached by foot, taxi or public transport.
