I am disappointed Broken Social Scene are not getting a replacement act. It was one of the bands I was excited for. Still looking forward to see Big Thief (despite their 16:00 slot), Khruangbin and Polo & Pan. 

Big Thief are going to be amazing, that voice.

I see you can now put money onto your wristband via the app. Before I put a decent amount on there can anyone confirm that the wristband can be used to pay for everything on site? ie food, drink, merchandise etc? Thanks.

The latest album is so good! Hope they'll play Paul this time :))

Would of been so much better in the A38 though, would of been lovely in there. Although have to say with a bit more research the a38 is stacked this year, I have 29 artists just in the a38 I want to check out. Which is a big difference to the main stage where its around half that mark. 

Really strong year if you really do your research, for me that is. ?

Anybody got any recommendations of acts playing the smaller stages? Realised that everyone we are seeing are on the two main stages and it would be a shame to not take in any of the other stages.

Naaz on the Europe Stage sounds pretty good. Poppy, but my kids will like that. Sadly, she clashes with Gang of Youths who I really want to see.

If it avoids clashes and it might because it’s late - 23.15 on Monday - Bohemian Betyars in Global Village. They are very popular locally and tremendous drunken Gypsy punk. Outrageous fun with all the locals singing along with their crazy tales is a way you get even though you can’t understand a word. They call themselves the ‘streetbastards’. 

I think they are a classic Sziget act that sort of sum up the festivals true vibe.

Also - the reggae/ African stage has a fantastic vibe to just hang out between other things you want to do - it’s must a wonderfully laid back and friendly little glade. It has the the added advantage of having a ‘secret’ path from it that brings you in at the front left of the main stage. This is quite a find, because nearly everyone approaches the main stage from the right and you can get nowhere near the most popular acts, but that little trip through the woodland from the reggae stage is a revelation!

Like Glastonbury, make time just to wander rather than have a list of acts - it’s something hardly anywhere can touch Glastonbury for but Sziget does very well.

One act I can really recommend is Tamino. 
Beautiful, fragile, Egyptian influences.
One of my highlights at Rock Werchter this year.

I had a tear in my eye at the end of the concert.

what do you guys think can we expect from post malone?

will he have a band on tour or is it just his autotune singing and some playback on a pretty empty stage like in recent yt videos.

that would be weak for a headliner ... thinking about skipping sunday completely and party in budapest instead :D

Hey everyone, just one last-minute question. We are a group of 4, arriving on tuesday, so we're moving in one day earlier. Is it still relatively easy to find a good spot in the shade then?

If you're arriving on the morning, it will take some time for you to find some, but you'll be fine eventually. I have always arrived a day before and got a spot under a shade, just takes a bit of time. The prime spots are taken of course.
