The organizers of Sziget Festival plan to have a shorter event with a stronger program for next year. Sziget Festival is going to be five plus one day long.

SZIN Festival will again be the biggest summer-ending party at the last weekend of August between 27-30th. The Youth Days of Szeged (Szegedi Ifjúsági Napok, SZIN Festival) was founded in 1968, and at this time this was the only youth festival in Hungary. Every year there were thousands of young people visiting Szeged because of the great programme and the "feeling" of those few days in the "city of sunshine". Last year we will had 8 program places including five stages. There number of visitors was almost doubled which is really remarkable. We had such performances on the main stage like: Kosheen (Live), Apollo 440, Freestylers dj, dj Spor, Superhiks (MK) and the leading Hungarian festival performances.
The site of the SZIN is an open-air swimming pool and campsite in the heart of the city, 5 minutes walk from the city centre with all the necessary facilities (shower, WC etc) which are inevitable to feel comfortable.
Already confirmed acts: Morcheeba; Phats and Small, Russkaya, and they are waiting for confirmation from several other foreign acts.
