    Came over from England to visit this market. Loved the fact you had to show you were double jabbed to even get in (covid). It was full of different stalls selling gifts, trinkets, souvenirs etc as well as food stalls. Very wide selection of items at very reasonable prices. Felt very festive. Staff were lovely, stall holders as well. I was very impressed and would definitely visit again

    I went to Sziget Festival for the first time on my own as a single female in 2019, hoping to just do my own thing and meet people there. I left Sziget knowing I'd be going back every year for the rest of my life! It's truly a unique festival from the location to the people. It's called the Island of Freedom and it really does fit the name.

    The food was decently priced (in comparison to the Spanish and UK festivals I've been to, Sziget was better priced) - pricey for Budapest but cheap for a festival.

    You can't take alcohol in with you however the drinks prices are relatively well priced with only spirits being a bit too expensive. (But still, in comparison to my other festival experience - still cheaper than average) A lot of people just got into the habit of buying alcohol from the big supermarket nearby and drinking on the grass outside the store to bypass the Sziget prices.

    The lineup was star studded in 2019 with massive names playing such as Ed Sheeran, The 1975, Franz Ferdinand, Florence and the Machine, Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and others. The stage was easily seen from quite a ways back (I didn't find it necessary to stand on my toes!), with large screens to help with that too.

    There is so much else to do at Sziget in addition to just the music, art, yoga, sport, swimming, boat parties, relaxing on the beach, dancing, a circus, and so much more.

    One word of warning, due to the dust and mixing with lots of people you are quite likely to get ill after the festival - so book some recovery time for after the festival!

    Wonderful way to learn about music and dance of the area. However, the enjoyment was visual only since the music and stories told was in Hungarian only. It seemed to be a very local event with few visitors.

    Well worth a visit.
    Fabulous replicas and loads of interesting information via a prerecorded personal audio.
    Allow at least a couple of hours.
    Great value for money.
    Well done to the organisers of this exhibition.

    Budapest did not feel like a very international city except in the wine festival where it felt a little bit different from the rest of the city. We had a 3 day travel pass so we took the public bus up to the castle and made our way to the festival. We had bought our tickets online so we just presented the online ticket and were given our wrist band. The festival is well organised, it is in a large area but well spread out with plenty of places to sit and enjoy your drink. There were many wines to try and we focused on the local Hungarian wines. The Tokaji wines we tried were particularly good. (sweet white dessert wine) this wine is a speciality of Hungary. If you are in Budapest during the annual wine festival this event is definitely worth going to.
