Our reader Jane sent us her impressions of this year's Sziget Festival. "I had a BRILLIANT time at Sziget 2008.! Even though I had my camera stolen while I was trying to get close to the stage with balloon flowers for The Kooks! I will definately be going again next year. If anyone has any pictures of my balloon flowers I would love to see them. Thanks so much all at Sziget!!!!!"
