a few things

Sorry if this has all been over before i have trawled through the postings and it hard to pick out exactly what i am looking for.

Firstly, i bought the week ticket early this year and reserved a youth hostel on a boat which i was previously staying in as i knew i would be traveling alone. Unfortunately i have lost my job since so i was looking at cutting down my costs somewhat. Can you gain access to camping areas with the non camping wristbands or "upgrade" on site? I am struggling to see how this would be enforced when it gives you entry to the park all day anyway. If this is the case can anyone put me up in a tent?

Secondly, while i am here what is wrong with Dundee, Scotland or me! No one wants to surf with me!!! :( sniff

Ps. i wont be arriving to the wednesday

Thank you all

Hey Grant,

I'm not sure how easy access to camping will be with a non-camping wristband, but they say you can exchange a non-camping ticket for a camping ticket by paying the difference at the gate.

From the FAQ section on the Sziget website:

Can I exchange my Non-Camping Ticket for a Camping Ticket?
Yes, you can exchange your ticket at the ticket booths by paying the difference.
