The Chemical Brothers

This is now the 15th occasion that the Sziget Festival is held. I think there is no need to describe what Sziget is about I rather give you a little array of the programmes.

On the 0th day, the 7 Aug the LGT will play previous to the concert you can see the Made-up report from an American Popfestival. The musical is based on the 1973 novel of Tibor Déry. You could say that it is the Hungarian 'Hair'.

This year's programme will include The killers, Pink,
The Chemical Brothers, Faithless, Madness, Nine Inch Nails, The Hives, Mando Diao, Sinéad O'Connor, Tool, The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Gentleman, Laurent Garnier, Cesaria Evora, Skatalites, Leningrad, Rachid Taha, Sergent Garcia, Varttina, Sharam/Deep Dish, Timo Maas, Goldie, DJ Hell, Booka Shades, Juliette and the Licks, Hooverphonic, Plump DJs, Satoshi Tomiie, Silicon Soul, Dave Clarke, Hyper, Gusgus, Tinariwen.

The music and the concerts are the absolute heart of the festival but there is more to it, there will also be theatrical performances, dance, classical music, cabaret, performances, movie showings, arts&crafts, literature readings, kids' and sport programmes and of course that unmistakable Sziget feeling.

Daily ticket price: Ft7000 before 15 July, after it will be Ft8000
Weekly ticket: Ft37500 icluding camping there and Ft30000 if you commute.
