The second day of the 2016 edition of Sziget Festival 2016 is starting, once again, with chilly weather. I can't emphasize enough on the importance of having warm clothes (or warm bodies) at hand at this year's edition - possibly it's the coolest (literally) Sziget ever. But there are enough great performances - and alcohol, of course - to keep the Szitizens warm on the Island of Freedom, so dear parents worrying at home - you can stop now. Your kids will be OK. And now, without further ado, here are the day 2 live streams you can follow if

Szigetnews reader Apis 38 has sent us the full playlist of the videos he's made at Sziget Festival 2010.

We're back from the fantastic week that Sziget 2010 was, and everything was fabulous, as always. Still under the spell of the exceptional Muse show last night, or the great Iron Maiden performance (even if we got the impression that there were some sound problems there). It's hard to even mention what our highlights were. We loved Monster Magnet, but also Danko Jones. We enjoyed Ska-P's energetic show, but also Chapelier Fou's beautiful music. And we loved the fact that there was something cool to see every time we went by the Blues Stage (including the incredible Hubert Tubbs). We wanna hear
Just a reminder that today is the last day when you can get non-camping tickets for 140 Euros a piece (camping tickets for 170). Starting tomorrow, tickets will be 170 Euro (200 camping).

In other news, Billy Talent are set to play on a very busy August 15t - Danko Jones, Kasabian and Muse are to play on the same night.

Then, Faithless, Danko Jones, the Hives and The Toy Dolls and Bad Religion (both of the last two names were announced here). Also at Sziget will be Ska-P, that have been at Sziget before, and
