Budapest (MTI) – Organisers expect 140-150,000 visitors to attend this year’s Balaton Sound music festival in western Hungary, they said on Wednesday, the event’s first day.
The festival organised in Zamardi on the southern shore of the lake last year attracted 145,000 people, Norbert Lobenwein, a chief organiser, told MTI.
The event is highly popular among foreigners, 60-70 percent of whom come from Belgium and the Netherlands, followed by festival-goers from Austria, Slovakia, Germany, Britain and Italy.
The concert line up of the five-day event this year includes Faithless, Moti, Nicky Romero, Tiesto, Hardwell, Ludacris on the main stage, among others.
There will be 200 music, leisure and sports programmes offered at 15 venues.
