Telekom VOLT Festival is held in the beautiful city of Sopron, Hungary between 1st and 4th July, 2015. The VOLT Festival is one of the most popular festivals in Hungary––it is quite similar to the Sziget Festival in Budapest––playing a colourful variety of music genres. The festival is located close to the northwestern border of the country, therefore it attracts a lot of people coming from Austria and other countries close to the northwest of Hungary. Visitors can enjoy a great line-up of more than 150 artists on 10 stages. This year VOLT will have 2 main stages facing each other, so starting from 3 in the afternoon until 6 in the morning not much can come between you and your beats.
The welcoming city
The city and the festival itself have a special charm even in the middle of the night. VOLT fascinates thousands of party people with a very unique atmosphere of its festival field and with the familiarity of its camping chalets. VOLT Festival is just perfect in size: big enough for tons of programs and stages, small enough to spot your friends in less than half an hour drinking pálinka somewhere in the festival’s cuisine area.
Getting to the festival
The host town of the festival is around two and a half hours away from Budapest, and a direct bus transfer from Sopron to the festival location is also available for your comfort. If you choose to come by train, they run approximately in every hour during the day from Keleti Railway Station. Coming to VOLT by car can be an affordable and convenient way of travelling, especially if you fill your vehicle up with passengers. Take M7 to M1 in Budaörs, then continue on M1 to Kóny and after you need to follow Route 85 until you reach Sopron. If you have room in your vehicle, please feel free to post your travel plans in various internet forums and try to fill up the spaces.
You can buy your ticket from the festival’s webshop or from the festival’s official retail partners. The non-stop 4 day festival ticket costs 105 EUR, the day ticket costs 20-40 EUR. You can also book special VIP and combined tickets.
VOLT Festival is filled with thousands of amazing, caring and lovely people, but as the festival has grown in size, as with many of large scale events of its nature, it sadly becomes the target of opportunists. To help keep your belongings safe at the festival VOLT has a selection of secure lockers for your valuables to give you peace of mind. Locker area is monitored by CCTV for your safety and the security of your stuff.
Accommodation options come in a wide range. If you are a camper, you can reserve a camping ticket for 9 EUR. If you would like to sleep in beds you can choose from a lot of nearby hostels, guesthouses and hotels. They are filling very fast, hurry up!
VOLT Festival announces a massive line-up and bigger arenas this year. Superstar DJ David Guetta will lead the dance with his surging buildups and heavy drops, following one of the loudest hard rock bands of all time Motörhead, and the master of electronic swing music Parov Stelar Band on the stage. One of the greatest guitar player in rock history Slash is also coming to VOLT accompanied by vocalist Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The giant of British dance music Fatboy Slim is also preparing to blow up the main stage in Sopron.
The melodic hardcore band Ignite from Orange County, California––with the lead singer László Téglás who has Hungarian roots––has been added to the line up for VOLT Festival. The brilliant English indie band called Bastille is playing on 2nd July, and you definitely have to party for Parkway Drive and Rise Against as well on that day.
The British new-school drum and bass star Wilkinson is arriving at VOLT with his unmistakable style. Nouvelle Vague and their bossa nova style will make this year’s festival unforgettable.
Last but not least VOLT brings you the biggest names of the Hungarian music industry: Ákos, Quimby, Vad Fruttik, Tankcsapda, Punnany Massif, Kiscsillag and Carbonfools. Get ready to VOLT Festival! That is going to be a blast!
