In keeping with the spirit of the Sziget festival, with visitors from around the globe, Yeni Rak featured the concept "Fusion is Beautiful" as the title sponsor of the Roma Tent, one of the major activity venues of the festival. At the Meyhane Stand built to promote Meyhane and Rak culture, Yeni Rak continued its efforts to promote rak to foreigners unfamiliar with it, while a smaller "Fusion Point" bar was set up right across from the main stage. In addition to many surprise events around the clock across the festival area, Yeni Rak also set up a-400 m(2) "Fusion Lounge" around the Mirror and the HMH Stage, which was one of the most popular spots after the concerts were over. Rak training, now a symbol of Sziget; the percussion team and a diverse range of entertaining activities led by mobile teams added color to Sziget. The Yeni Rak logo appeared on the Sziget Festival Booklet, Sziget Map, Racket and Billboards, Promotional Fliers, Concert Posters and Social Media Campaign designs. Yeni Rak also promoted the Sziget event in France, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Portugal and Romania.

Sziget visitors gave a thumbs-up to original rak cocktails created by world bartending champion Tolga Germiyanoglu, enhanced with different flavors like eucalyptus and melon, as well as rak in its classic style.
