The Sziget Festival is not only a pure music festival, it also involves art of any kind like dance performances, very impressive Kiton B, acrobats, theater and amazing installations like the Luminarium (Photos). Thus the festival really engages all the senses – and it is a hell-of-a-party for five days!!! Taking place on a lovely island in the Danube in Budapest, the location itself is a fine reason to go for it!
And the music! Here’s a small excerpt from the line-up – there are over 100 bands and DJs: Iron Maiden, REM, Alanis Morissette, Maceo Parker, Sex Pistols, Babyshambles, Mercedes Peón, Leningrad, Harcsa Veronika Quartet, Transglobal Underground, Roisin Murphy, Jamiroquai …
The visitor count is mind blowing, too, the organizers claim having broken the last year’s record of 385 000 people. Then the festival went over seven days, not only five like this year.
Ok, now one should be able to figure out why there has been no blogging for me in August and why there won’t be any in August next year!
So just join the madness in 2009, they also got free Internet, but there’s so much else to discover!
