The best week of the year, Sziget Festival ended so quickly this year. For the first time in my life I wasn't there just to party, but for a work project as well. We were promoting a Hungarian movie called No Man's Island. Still, I had plenty of time to go to concerts and parties at night, who needs sleep anyway? (Actually I definitely do, as my exhaustion is probably the reason why I got so sick after the festival.)
Staying out there for the long days and nights was 100% worth it, as the lineup was the best in years, and we had so much fun dancing all night. One thing I'm only going to mention for half a sentence, because I want this post to be as positive as my general experience at Sziget was: be very-very careful and nice to each other in big crowds, because it can get crazy and dangerous.
Back to the happy things: Kavinsky and Placebo were the highlights of the week, Deadmau5 was better than I imagined, and the LGBTQ tent was the most fun and free place to dance at. What makes Sziget unique are the surreal things, like a giant dragon robot with a middle-aged DJ and a man on bass guitar playing Daft Punk-esque tunes on top of it, and the many different cultural programs it offers during the day.
Sziget was always my favourite festival, and this year just made my feelings for it grow stronger.
