Second Sziget Express: sale starting from February 12

The first Sziget Express sold out quicker than ever. So it’s time to announce the second one! The sale starts on Tuesday February 12, at 12:00 PM sharp. We limited the number of Economy Couchettes for this train as well, which means they are likely to sell again at a fast pace. Would you like to come?

Prices & booking

The prices of the Sziget Express tickets differ per comfort level: seat (€190), economy couchettes (€220) and comfort couchettes (€240). Sziget Express tickets are available at the Sziget Festival page.

The most eco-friendly way to travel

* The difference of 88% is calculated in an advisory module from Milieu Centraal, an independent organization of Rijkswaterstaat that provides practical information about the environment. Based on a distance of 1.364 kilometers and 950 people, Milieu Centraal indicates that the emissions per person by train are 71kg CO2, while aircraft uses 612 kg CO2.

Moving-In Tickets and Sziget Warm-Up Party

Becasue the Sziget Express already arrives in Budapest on Tuesday, August 6, we have the Moving-In Ticket (€25,-) available again. When purchasing this next to a 7-Day Pass, you you’ll have access to the festival grounds from August 6. This might also help with claiming your favorite camping spot! We also organize the Sziget Warm-Up Party on the day of arrival. More about this later.
