David Guetta
Wiz Khalifa

Martin Garrix
Disclosure live

Dillon Francis
Camo & Krooked
Krewella
Pretty Lights
Maya Jane Coles

Heineken Balaton Sound started in 2007 on the shore of Lake Balaton in the town of Zamárdi. The unique atmosphere, the sunset over the lake and the top quality electronic music from chill out to house rapidly gained the festival a positive reputation. Not just the fans and visitors, but also the performers themselves are reported to love playing and hanging out here. Armin van Buuren, Snoop Dogg, the Beastie Boys, Tiesto, David Guetta, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, Pet Shop Boys, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul have performed there among many others.

For the last three years, the Balaton Sound Festival has won an award as one of the top ten concerts in Europe, and in 2011 won the Best Middle sized-Festival in Europe award. At the 2014 awards in January, Balaton sound slipped lower down the top ten, but there were no hard feelings, as the number one slot went to another new contender from Hungary and in fact part of the same Sziget organization*

In 2014 Balaton Sound will take place between 10th and 13th of July. Early bird tickets have sold out, but standard tickets are still available and are selling fast. (click here to get yours.)

*The winner was actually B.my.Lake, the official after-party for the Sziget Festival, when the tired party-goers relocate down to the lakeside town of Balatonaliga. This is a 3-day electronic music festival, featuring more than120 bands and DJs, held right on the beach at Balatonaliga, between 18-21 August in 2014. Combo-tickets that cover both events will be available.
