Sziget Festival is one of the largest in Europe and welcomed 379,000 visitors this summer from just over 70 countries. The seven days of partying is fuelled by 1,000 bands, acts and art installations featured across 60 venues on the 266 acre festival site. Uniquely the festival offers a plethora of other on-site activities, including a cinema, theatre, tattooing, volleyball, tennis, football, indoor rowing, rock climbing, bungee jumping and a life-sized foosball.

Sziget Festival 2013 takes place on Óbuda Island in the city of  Budapest, Hungary from 5-12th August 2013.

Blur, who made headlines this year with their Hyde Park Olympic closing concert and single 'Under the Westway', have already confirmed European festival shows in 2013 with Primavera Sound, Rock Werchter and Heineken Open’er in Poland.

The Stone Roses headlined Sziget Festival this year, and were joined on the extensive line-up by the likes of Placebo, The Horrors, Hurts, Snoop Dogg and Friendly Fires.
