Sziget Festival receives honour

The Sziget Festival received a decoration for its efforts in the field of environmental protection at a ceremony of the Greener Festival Awards in Groningen, Holland on Sunday.

The European Festival Federation established that Sziget Festival had placed “commendable” emphasis on making a low environmental impact in key areas such as water consumption, transportation and ecosystem protection.

This year, 37 festivals in 15 countries were honoured for their commitments to sustainability.
