Sziget and Telekom VOLT Festival, both organized by Sziget Cultural Management in Hungary, won awards at last night's European Festival Awards held at Eurosonic Noorderslag in Groningen. Sziget received the award for the Best European Line-Up, while Telekom VOLT is now the Best Medium-Sized Festival in Europe. This year – the 7th edition of EFA – saw over 800,000 votes cast by fans from 50 different European countries for their favorite festivals and artists.

This year's European Festival Awards is a huge success for Sziget Cultural Management. The company organizes several festivals in the summer season and slowly all of them gather impressive international recognition. Sziget Festival is one of the biggest music and arts festival in Europe, crowned already twice as Best Major Festival. Taking place every August since 1993, Sziget will be organized for the 24th time this year. The Island of Freedom celebrates music, art, theatre, dance and many more based on the principles of freedom and tolerance. Receiving the award for the Best European Line-Up certifies that today a festival can - and should- deliver much more than just music, while everyone has the freedom of choice to choose their own headliners. Attracting more than 400.000 festival visitors every year, Sziget believes that providing countless quality programs for seven days can change the concept of festivals, making the experience a much broader adventure. In addition, Sziget was also shortlisted among the best ten in the categories of Best Major Festival and Artists' Favorite Festival.

Besides the continuous success of Sziget, Telekom VOLT Festival has received its first international award this time, thus becoming the Best Medium-Sized Festival in Europe. The festival is organized in the beginning of July, attracting around 110.000 festival visitors each year. Thanks to its family atmosphere and wonderful surroundings, VOLT is one of the most beloved festivals in Hungary, organized in the pretty town of Sopron. The cozy festival brings a prestigious list of names every day, focusing on different genres.
