Sziget Festival is the proud owner of multiple awards, however the acklowledgement of the European festival scene always makes us super happy! Yesterday night in Groningen at the European Festival Awards, Sziget won the award for Artists' Favorurite European Festival! How cool is that, right?
This year's EFA Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Dan Panaitescu. Working on Sziget Festival since its inception, Dan was responsible for curating’s Sziget’s award-winning line-up, playing no small part in the ascent of the festival into an organisation of international renown. With the festival’s annual line-ups, Dan ensured that the festival truly catered for everyone – making him absolutely integral to Sziget’s atmosphere of inclusivity and togetherness. We lost Dan in tragic car accident this summer.
