Sziget has been over for two weeks now, but your Sziget accounts keep on coming to Szigetnews.com. Keep them coming through the contact section, or via comment. Here's the latest we received, from Szigetnews friend Kevin: Â Sziget was good as always, but it was better the last couple of yearsâ€¦ Prices have gone up extremely over the last two years.

Thatâ€™s not your own fault! Donâ€™t know if Iâ€™ll go again.
