I wasn’t aware of the Sziget festival when planning my trip. I just happened to be in Budapest on the last day of the 2007 edition. Of course, I couldn’t miss such an opportunity and went. For HUF 8000 (EUR 30 more or less), you get a day ticket that enables you to see whatever you want. There were a lot of very good acts all round, no way to get bored and the atmosphere was great: everybody was there to have fun and fun we had. The icing on the cake was the closing act by The Killers: what a show! EUR 30 to see The Killers live? Let alone all the other great groups? That’s a steal!over 5 years ago

I was with my sister in Budapest the summer of ’05 during part of the Sziget week, so we decided to go there for a day. Coincidentally, Sean Paul was there that day, and since we found him quite comical we were overjoyed. It actually turned out to be a great concert, and everyone in the audience was going crazy with the music, the heat and the beer :)over 6 years ago
On our way back from budapest to cologne it seemed like half of germany had been there. we had about 27 different people in our old VW bus that came from budapest and needed a ride. The whole festival was like a european youth get-together. Very inspiring.over 7 years ago
