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

But let's not forget that Sziget is not just another music festival. This year, just like in the past, they will offer their visitors a variety of non-musical programs to attend, all adding the now legendary "Sziget feeling". Here they are. Transe Express - Mù Transe Express is a popular street theater group from France, with two previous performances at Sziget (in 2006 and 2007). This year they will return to the "stage" with Mù,
