Thinking of Sziget this year, never done it before so got a couple of questions:

What time does the music run from?

Heard that the Budapest transportation is very good, so is it easy to get to and from the festival if not camping?

What are the drink prices like?

Sorry if these have already been covered

From 4ish until 6am, main stage until around 11.30pm, best bet is to check out clashfinders.

very easy transport wise, metro works well. 

Drink prices are pretty cool, especially if you’re used to UK festival prices, less than 2 quid for a pint.

Cheers for the reply! Can’t really argue with 2 quid a pint.

RHCP for Summer Sonic.
Does it 100% rule them out of Sziget?

Not at all.

It looks like the flight I'll end up on will land at 9pm on the 7th, is there much hope of me catching any acts that night if I go straight from the airport to the festival?

What do you all think chances are of rhcp for sziget? As Sunday headliners they could help sell tickets for people going for the weekend but as much as I want them too I'm not sure how likely it is. Touring festivals around that time seems promising though

Booking RHCP alongside Foo Fighters would be my heaven.

However, I can't see it happening for one big reason - cost. The Foos are a stadium band and their fee will be huge. RHCP are in the same price bracket and I just can't see Sziget being able to afford them both.

I may be wrong but if I am I'll be amazed (and over the moon!)

For sure that would be amazing but yeah I think you're right it's unlikely. We can hope though

As well as Ed Sheeran.

Of course, I forgot he was there too! Also someone, certainly in the UK at least, who is now playing football stadiums rather than pubs and clubs!

RHCP would be a fantastic addition but can't see it happening, unfortunately.

A$AP Rocky is touring Europe in July and August. Would he be likely and is he big enough to headline/co-headline?

He is my bet for a coheadline with Martin Garrix (along with Travis Scott).

I expect at least another big game name other than Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters. Could see RHCP fit the ticket, Sziget was behind them since 2014 at least (I remember there was one mission in the mini-game they do yearly about conving RHCP to perform at Sziget lol)

I remember when in 2016 Josh Klingoffer, the guitarist of RHCP told fans on like 10 different occasions that they'll play in Budapest in august. I (and other fans) assumed it's Sziget and in the end they did 2 solo shows 2 weeks after Sziget :lol:

I honestly would prefer a smaller head than RHCP and therefore 3-4 strong mid-table bands.

Btw, where is the leak we're all waiting for? :D

I saw RHCP on Nova Rock 3 years ago and it was the worst show in last five years there. Okay, after Marilyn Manson, but he was on cocaine, heroin, met etc 😀
