Good, Better, Sziget 2009

Sziget proved again to be my favorite festival. Excellent camping spot in a beautiful and gigantic park (island), insanely diverse cultural/other happening AND superb concerts. What's not to like? Plus I got to go there for free thanks to my DJ friend Luk@May.

This years main theme of the festival were animals. Inflatable and furry animal toys, animal costumes, tents in the shape of animals and of course the beasts that come out of people after a bottle or two of vodka. Very primal, very zoo-otic.

It was literally impossible to go to all or even most the concerts and performances that were happening, so I choose only the ones I really wanted to see.

Highlights:
  • I am X,
  • Editors,
  • Bloc party,
  • Primal Scream,
  • Klaxons,
  • Fat Boy Slim.
"Discovery":
  • Pendulum
Cultural happening:
  • Performance show in Magic Mirror,
  • Dance and theatre show with gigantic wheel.
A slight dissapointment:
  • The Prodigy,
  • The Ting Tings.
Too bad I missed the White Lies AGAIN, because they were performing in an owercrowded tent. I think it's time to finally recognise their potential and put them on the main stage. Seriously.

As it is for the rest: It's been almost a week and I am still recovering from everything. If you are bored there, it's probably your own fault.
