Sziget festival 2017 will offer a special boat parties at the Danube river!
The 25th Sziget festival is offering an astonishing set of programs for its jubilee year. Everyone who loves a boat party will have an oportunity to attend a party on the river Danube with the unique atmosphere, pulsating tunes and a the stunning scene assured by the city of Budapest and it’s view.
During the 5 days of the festival, organizers have prepared a ship moving all along the city of Budapest on the Danube, serving as the biggest floating dancefloor of whole Europe. The elegant pleasure-boat offers something for everyone: be it chilling in bean bag chairs with the Parliament in the background, or going crazy in a pulsing party on board. Party goers can admire the world-famous panorama of Budapest, the bridges as they pass over their heads, or the hundreds of years old buildings lining the riverside while partying all the way through the capital section of the river Danube.
Organizers guarantee comfort all the way, which means that you can board the ship either in the heart of the city (Batthyányi tér) or directly at the Island of Freedom, and after the cruise, you are transported by private buses back to Sziget festival. This exclusive sightseeing tour becomes an even more complete experience with the special gastronomy and craft beers offered on board. The inner city of Budapest becomes visible from such an angle, which only very few can enjoy.
