This was my fourth edition of the Sziget Festival. The line up could be a bit better, but the vibe on the island and the amazing pre parties made this edition special.
Sziget Express 2013
Three trains departed from The Netherlands to go to Sziget 2013. Together with my friend from Sziget 2012, we got the chance to make a great party once again. We arrived in Budapest one day before the festival started, so we only had a few hours before going to a legendary pre party.
Sziget 2013 pre party
Together with Instant Budapest, one of the biggest ruin bars in Hungary, I organised a Sziget 2013 pre party. After a night without sleep at the Sziget Express, wo only had a few hours to sleep before playing in Instant. At th moment of arrival we got a phone call from Instant, asking us if we could start two hours earlier. Damn. This meant that we were DJ-ing 27 hours in only 29 hours. But, it was totally worth it.
Sziget 2013 line up
The headliners of Sziget 2013 were a bit disappointing. Blur was the biggest name marketing wise, meaning they were on top of all merchandising. Other acts this year were Katy B, Parov Stelar, Hadouken, Nicky Romero, Empire of the Sun, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, Leningrad, Mika, Alex Clare, Skunk Anansie, Ska-P and Dizzee Rascal. This year was the first edition with an end show, performed by David Guetta with lots of fireworks.
Sziget 2013 drum and bass
At Sziget 2013, there were two drum and bass nights. One of them included Jade and Noisia. The other night Camo & Krooked and Netsky were the drum and bass acts. On top of this, Chase & Status played live at the main stage.
