The seven-day event, held in August, is the fifth largest festival in the world.

It is held on the 108-hectare Obuda Island on the Danube in northern Budapest.

Over the years, Sziget has played host to some of the most prestigious names in music, including David Bowie, Oasis, The Stone Roses, Iggy Pop, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Sex Pistols and Kendrick Lamar.

Ed Sheeran was a headliner in 2018.

This year, Sziget takes place from August 5 to 11.
