No tent/Spare tent
Posted May 2nd, 2009 - 3:40 pm by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)
As we already started getting personal messages from last year attendants asking about tents availability... Here is the post for you, tent owners, to let people know you have extra tent (or space in yours) to share, and for you, tent-less travelers, to claim the need for tent-host :)

We are very likely to come with two tents ourselves, both of which are taken: one by us and another one by an HC friend coming from France.

And remember - if you won't find yourself a tent-host, you can still buy a tent from Sziget's closest Auchan, nice and cheap.

Hi Im an aussie girl travelling Europe alone and I will be arriving in Budapest from Swedan between 10th-12th August, Id really like to meet 1-3 couchsurfers or hosts who want to share a tent at sziget with me.. We can all agree to buy one together or maybe someone will already have one? Also a couple of lilo's or blow up mattress's would be ideal since were going to be there for at least 4-7 nights! Hope someone can help :) Im a big facebook fan so u can check out my facebook profile or my CS proile to find out more about this fun, adventurous aussie girl!! ;)

Hello friends,

Do not be afraid to announce your tents here :)
If you have an extra tent to lend to a tentless CSers, or if you have a place in your tent and you're ready to host someone there - let people know by announcing it here!
Or maybe you'd like to buy a tent together with Mathilde?

Do it! :)

Hey Freya,

I'm happy to share a buy-share a tent with you if you are still up for it?
Will be in Budapest on the 11th if you want to meet up beforehand!

Lauren :)

Hi !

I have a tent for 3 persons. So i'd be glad to share it with 2 persons.

Just contact me :)

I mentioned this in my other post, so sorry for the double-up...

I have a tent with some extra space, but won't be arriving until the 12th and am not sure if I'll be able to find a place for it.

Ideally, someone is passing through Vienna and also needs a spare space or two... you bring my tent early and set it up, then I arrive and join you in the tent on the 12th, and I bring the tent back to Vienna after the festival. Any takers?

or... you are coming to Sziget early from Vienna and will bring my tent and set it up for me in the CS camp, so I get a space with everyone else, even though you don't need a space, cause you are awesome! and then I'll share it with some other person...

I have already a tent but if I can I will take yours passing by Vienne.

I don't have yet a host for Vienne though but I found one I will contact you to meet there.

See you

I need a space in a tent, though I have had a few offers, Im not sure who will also arrive in Monday like me so I think Im safe to find someone to share their tent when I arrive at sziget.. Whats everyone doing about sleeping mat ot mattress.. I need to shop for one when I arrive on Monday :) +447552778176

Hey ho
Will also be on the sziget.
Want to start hitchhiking from germany tomorrow but still have to figure out some hosts in dresden, prague, bratislava for my way.
So I hope to be in Budapest on monday or even a bit earlier. My plan is to buy a tent on my way somewhere in the cities I stop in.
Would like to share it with someone else or buy one in budapest (much cheaper than germany :) ) with one of you. I also need a matress or something to sleep on, but that won't e a problem I think.

Would be nice if someone could shoot me a text if interested.

If I can still buy the sziget ticket on the gates, I won't buy it online, are you shure that works guys? Well I'm full of confidence and trust you :)

see you down there

Hey Chief Maker

I´ll be passing through Vienna on 8/12. I ´ll take a train from Vienna to Budapest at 8.25 A.M. So if you like I can take your tent then. Write me a sms to 0049-179-75-96-948.

When exactly are you in Vienna?

Hi Laurent,
Can I share your tent. Should arrive on the 11th or 12th August 2009 from London. Still sorting out the logistics-some how I am a 'last minute.com' person.

Sveta + Anton,
How much for a tent approximately at Auchan?
Thanks for a reply.

Estzer - I should be able to host you in my tent with no problem for those nights. There will be plenty of space, but I don't have any sleeping mats or blankets - just my sleeping bag. I'm going to try to find a cheap mat somewhere in town or on-site. I'll be arriving late on the 10th, and will be there all week.

Wilaliy - thanks for the offer to help me with the tent. I was able to change my plans so I'm actually arriving late on Monday night. Hopefully there is a big space left, as another CS'er said he'd try to reserve one for me.

mis_chief_maker, your space reservation is confirmed, maybe covered because it will rain at half week. how big your tent is?

Hi Everyone!

We are 2 from NYC, arriving to Sziget on Tuesday morning the 12th. Does anyone have extra tent space until 14th morning?

Or, does anyone want to buy a 3 or 4-person tent together?

@Art, want to go in on buying a tent?? (if it's not too late)

Looking forward to seeing you all Tuesday! Please save us a site if possible! :)

Meg & Mike

Hey Meg and Mike - if you get this message in time, I can host you in my tent for the next two nights. You can send me a text here at the festival and I will call you back: 0043 650 415 0595

I have another girl arriving on the 14th, but I can fit the two of you until then just fine.

I am from NYC too... It would be cool to meet up either way. Look out for me at the Dalmat bar meetings!


Posted August 11th, 2009 - 2:46 pm by from Pittsburgh, United States (Permalink)
hmmm... tuesday morning is the 11th, so I am not sure when you are arriving exactly.

My number is in the post either way. If anyone else is still stuck, get in touch and I will try to help. I have some extra space.

Did you guys managed to get a tent. Can we share one. DO you have one already or we can buy one together.
