Accommodation and travel
Zamárdi is a lovely city, situated exactly at the shores of Lake Balaton, the biggest lake of Central Europe. Only 1 hour from Budapest, Zamárdi is easily reachable from Liszt Ferenc Airport and main stations of the Hungarian capital. Direct shuttle buses are also available. Balaton Sound is one of the few electronic music festivals with a real lakeside connection, as about 2 km of beach awaits fans of music and summer right at the festival area. Accommodation options are available for all needs: camping areas are located 10 minutes from the festival, while one can also choose the Beach Camping right next to the festival area. In the Beach Camping glamping packages are also on sale, so one can have a real comfy place to have a rest while partying 24/7.
