Swiss student 9 millionth visitor at Sziget Festival

Organisers of Budapest’s Sziget Festival greeted the event’s 9 millionth visitor on Tuesday.

Swiss secondary school student Joelle Gbeassor was spending her last day on vacation in the city and wanted to buy a day ticket for the festival, but was taken by surprise when she was given a lifelong pass for the annual event.


Tuesday is the closing day of the 26th Sziget Festival, featuring Arctic Monkeys, Blossoms, War On Drugs, Lewis Capaldi, Nothing But Thieves, Zara Larsson, and Ifriqiyya Electrique.
