hi folks!!!

i have just found out the existence of this festival since my fav italian band will perform there on August 14th.
i double checked my roster at work and hopefully i will finalize my booking soon. i can stay just from fri to mon. do u already have the full programm?i guess to fly over budapest on friday night and leave on tuesday morning.
do u think it's better to camp in the island or go & back to the city everyday?i wish we can all meet & party there.

take care, a.

Hi Alessandro,

We'd totally recommend to camp on the island - there is so much going on there during both night and day, and the atmosphere is amazing, you wouldn't want to miss it.

However, trips to the city are also advised, there is much there to be visited and seen, from Budapest's thermal baths to famous local rom-kocsmak (ruin-pubs).

The schedule shall appear here: http://www.sziget.hu/festival_english - plus there will be Sziget magazines given out for free on the island. So you'll be able to check the schedule and decide when you can pay a visit to the city :)

Take care,

hi S(veta)&A(nton)
thanks for your kind reply.
well, i will go to buy the camping passm then, althought i m gonna spend just the last three nights since i will be working untill 13 afternoon and if im lucky i can arrive on time just for 13 night show.
then i will wait for 14 one when Italian SUBSONICA are supposed to perform.

on tuesday, i will try to contact some agency to get the ticket and soon sort out my flights as well.. im highly motivated, guys and looking forward to meet un in this festival!

hugs, a.

ps: HAPPY EASTER, by the way.

after last years great sziget experience iam going this year again, probably with a friend, but perhaps just alone. so would be nice to meet you guys. iam from germany but feel more like a cosmopolitan (not the cocktail).

Hi Sabine,

I'm very sorry for writing you just like that, but I have a huge problem.

I'm going to the Sziget festival too, but just realised, that the real first, so the -1. day begins on the 9th of August, not on the 11th. I know, I am stupid. The problem is,that my family and I will be around Amsterdam that date, and I don't have the money to get a flight there, or a train either. Since I've read that you have the same problem, maybe you have already found somebody that can give you a lift, and if it isn't a huge problem, would you mind if I joined?

I would obviously pay my part from the fuel and other expenses, and I won't have much luggage either since I live in Budapest normally, and my family can take my bigger things home when they are leaving the Netherlands.

As to repay your favour, I can offer my flat if you want to stay there or have a normal shower or just sleep in a normal bed during the festival.

Sorry again for bothering you, but it would help me enormously!

I hope you will enjoy Hungary and the festival!


Posted July 6th, 2010 - 9:35 am by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)
oh now, I accidentally posted this message here, sorry...

but, if I did this mistake, i would like to grab the moment and ask for everybody, that if somebody is going to the festival from Amsterdam or near, would you be so kind to let me joine you? I can offer my flatat Budapest to stay during the Sziget for that.

sorry again,

Hey all!

It will be my first time in Sziget festival, I'm from Portugal and I'll be traveling around eastern europe for a month (with Interrail) and a festival along the way will be the cherry on top of the cake :)

hoping to get the time of work :)

Posted April 23rd, 2010 - 5:53 pm by from Civitavecchia, Italy (Permalink)
going to buy my ticket.. very soon!
here in italy, it looks like if u book before the end of april u can get a discount 170 € for the camping entrance for all days.. i guess im gonna buy it anyway although i can attend just from friday night to monday.. it sounds cheaper than buy 4 times a single entrance of 45 €.

keep in touch, a.

Posted April 26th, 2010 - 7:08 pm by from Haarlem, Netherlands (Permalink)
It's gonna be my third visit, and I'm from the Netherlands. Looking forward!!!

uhh, just bought ticket..soo excited.
Will probably go from Latvia - but no idea still how and with whom. I would prefer hichhiking, if somebody is also coming from this side of Europe. Maybe some hichhiking after festival around neighbouring countries. depends if I find a travel buddy :)
will there be any CS meetings in Sziget festival, maybe even we could make small community in camping area?

Posted April 28th, 2010 - 3:03 pm by from Civitavecchia, Italy (Permalink)
what a explosion of messages in just 2 days!!

cool, guys..im so excited too.
friday it will be my turn to buy the ticket!
althought i will stay just from friday night i will opt for a campinf solution with a little foldable tent i guess.

looking forward to meeting u allllllllll :)


ps: any news about the day-by-day program on main stage?
ie: when The Muse will perform?

just randomly booked a ticket 2 mins ago (up until 5 mins ago i had no real intention of going but now i guess i am lol) so yeah I'm probably going on my own so hopefully some of you guys are up for hanging out during the festival?

and I'm from Ireland.

Posted June 17th, 2010 - 8:39 pm by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)
That was a right thing to do! Now see you in August :)
There were a couple of Irish guys on Sziget before...

To all of you Belgian folks - well, the beer might be cheaper on Sziget, but it's not gonna be any close to Belgian beer in quality, so be prepared! :D

i Holaaa!

I'm Viri, I'm 26, Hungarian, currrently living in Barcelona. This will be my 9th Sziget, and hopefull my 2nd CSziget.. I'm coming alone, so I hope we make the CS camp happen. I Had a great time last year with some of you guys...

Posted July 5th, 2010 - 8:03 pm by from Tilburg, Netherlands (Permalink)

I'm Jael living in Tilburg the Netherlands. I'm joining the Canoe-tour in Hungary before and go to Sziget for the first time after that.
Since the Canoe-tour is for Couchsurfers only I hope to meet some surfers that will go to the Sziget too.
Anyway I hope to find you people on this huge Sziget island (gather spot) aswell, since i might end up alone (I can not imagine :-) ) to have an awesome time.

Looking forward to join
All the best, Jael

I'm planning on going just the 16th, but would love to go for more of the week... we'll see :)

I'm from America and will be in Europe for the first time! I'm gonna be traveling with my friend for a few weeks, we have plans to visit Budapest the week of Sziget and though she will be leaving on the 14th I want to stay for the festival! I'll probably be all alone and I'm new to this sort of thing so if anyone wants to befriend me for the day I would love that :)

The bands I want to see are Yeasayer, Major Lazer and Deadmau5. I haven't heard of anything else that's on the 16th but I'm hoping to discover lots of new stuff! I'm especially into dubstep lately so I'll be looking for some of that.

If anyone is planning on seeing the same bands and wants to meet up, message me!

Posted July 18th, 2010 - 5:45 pm by from Koper, Slovenia (Permalink)
Hey, my faves are also yeasayer, a lill bit dissapointed they play on the last day, but will try to make it.

Last year was so great, hopefully i will be able to go again and meet some of you there!

Posted July 28th, 2010 - 11:48 am by from London, England (Permalink)
I think that I am coming.

I was doing the same up to the day before it started last year...Got a last minute plane ticket on the start date.

Got the entrance ticket in the train on the way. ha ha
Maybe I will pull it off again. he he

Posted July 28th, 2010 - 1:14 pm by from Istanbul, Turkey (Permalink)

I'm from Manila, Philippines and staying in Hungary til end of August.

Posted August 4th, 2010 - 7:38 am by from Budapest, Hungary (Permalink)
I will also go only for the weekend. Hope there will be arranged meetings with the others on Saturday as well. Lets stick to the Dalmat bar?
