Sziget Festival ‘doesn’t believe in cultural embargo’, says chief organiser
The festival’s organisers “condemn the Russian aggression of war” and support peace, Kadar told a press conference.
The festival scheduled for August 10-15 will feature concerts by Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, the Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, DJ Calvin Harris and the Kings of Leon.
Visitors will get to see artists from 52 countries, and the event will feature around 1,000 programmes overall.
Sziget remains committed to green causes and its future is secured by a 5 plus 5-year agreement with the Budapest municipal council, organisers said.
The festival was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
