Okay...who can help me with this?

I ran across some information about Sziget Festival this August. Is it actually IN Budapest? I know the dates and everything, but is it on the outskirts of town or right IN town?

I'm just wondering, I'm hoping for Budapest this summer and that would work out GREAT!

Thanks all!

I'd never heard of this festival to be honest, but i found This website which gives you loads of info. it looks pretty good and the line up isnt bad either, radiohead and franz ferdinand amongst others

from what i can tell, its not right in the centre of budapest, but not that far out of town.

it will take you 40 mins on the HEV train.

Everyone knows what a fan of Budapest i am after living there, they have some great festivals in Hungary and this is definately one of them!!

I went to sziget last year and it was amazing. Right in the middle of budapest on an island in the middle of the Danube. Best music festy i've been too, as unlike glastonbury you have so much more than a music festival. swimming pool, sports area, loads of different stages, and a fantastically european atmosphere. Drop us a line if you are definately going this year, and i'll see you there.....
