The festival is held at Partfürdő Beach in Szeged
Already in 1968, music-lovers from all over the country went to Szeged to enjoy the festival. Although more than 50 years have passed since then, SZIN is still the most popular summer closing festival in Hungary. In 2020, however, due to the pandemic, organizers had to cancel the event. Fortunately, this year, it could reopen and is held at Partfürdő Beach in Szeged.
