Sziget - The Island of Freedom: expectations.

In just over a week, I will be flying with others from London to Budapest in order to attend one of Europe's largest festivals, Sziget.

Sziget is a week long festival from the 10th to the 17th August, but we leave next Friday (7th) so that we can grab a few days of sightseeing Budapest before the festival begins. We leave next week, and yet in all honesty, I do not have a clue what to expect. Considering I'm meant to be saving for my second year of university, I have to admit that this trip has been all very random and spontaneous (for me anyway). But as Motivational Photos helpfully reminded me on Instagram, 'memories are priceless'.

Tbf considering it's a week long, Sziget is actually really good value for money with camping tickets costing around £170 (the actual price is in euros); which I think is amazing considering that last year's V Festival ticket cost me £200, and that was only for weekend camping. The acts are really good too, with Robbie Williams (I am a big fan) headlining the first night, followed by the likes of Rudimental, Avicii, Ellie Goulding, Kings Of Leon, The Script, Ella Eyre, Florence and the Machine etc.

From looking at the photos and videos from last year, I get the impression that Sziget is sort of like a humungous Glastonbury (as if Glastonbury isn't big enough!) - with loads of different tents and things to do besides obviously enjoying the music. Below is the video that made me want to go :)

Despite being in a constant state of dilemma over what to pack, being very very scared about the unavoidable portaloo situation and having absoltutely near no idea what I'm about to walk into; wriitng this blog post and rewatching last year's aftermovie has made me incredibly excited. Make sure to look out for my blog post 'Sziget - The Island of Freedom: the reality' when I'm back home!

Have you been to Sziget before or are going this year? Get in touch below :)
