    I made many European festivals and a road trip through Europe in 2009 took me in Hungary and to Sziget festival.

    It was amazing! The festival is in the heart of Budapest on an island on the middle of river Danube, creating a special atmosphere with the unique mixture of party, city and nature.

    It is the longest festival, 7 days of music, cultural programs and exhibitions. But it is also the largest with 400,000 persons from everywhere in the world and the most diverse line up, you will find what you like in every hour of the day on one of the 30 stages of the Island.

    You add a huge Party Arena and some parties places with several DJs 24h/7, cheap drinks and food.

    I finished this experience in one of the bath of the city on Monday afternoon after few days without sleeping.

    A week of madness, i didn’t believe what I was living!

    Live it, you will enjoy it!

    If you want to have an idea, watch that!

  12. Cheers for the heads up, it’s now been added :)

  13. I’ll check it out. Good looking out

  14. Thanks for sharing – Sziget sounds awesome. Keep those festival tales coming!

    I would hate for this to get out since it’s so clutch but you never mentioned Kazantip. It’s in Popovka, Crimean Peninsula, Ukraine. Here’s a website to it:

    Here’s a documentary [NSFW] by VBS on it

  16. CaliToMunich says:

    Also, Rock im Park and Rock am Ring. Not really Electric type music but Deadmau5 will be there on June 3

  17. Emilio says:

    Small mistake for Pukkelpop:
    “EDM Lineup includes:”
    It’s Thursday, Friday and Saturday

    But thx for sharing!

    Distortion in Copenhagen is also really great! It’s too late now but prehaps for next year!
