Although we were prepared for a storm, it didn't come early, so PJ Harvey could finish her performance on Sziget's Main Stage without interruption. Today, in turn, there is much more to expect, even though the weather is a bit more chilly than yesterday. Headlining the Main Stage today are The Chainsmokers, preceded by performances by acts like Metronomy, Hurts, and White Lies, who will be streamed live later in the day. The A38 stage will be taken by acts like The Pretty Reckless, The Naked and Famous (who will likely perform fully clothed, though), and Tycho. The Electronic Beats Arena

festival essentials tent

The 2017 Sziget Festival, as well as all the previous editions, is best enjoyed when moving in. At least if you don't plan on sleeping too much during its week-long events. As you probably know - or if you are at your first trip to Sziget this year, you'll find out - the space on the Island is limited (266 acres / 1 square kilometer is not that much), which means that your lodging will likely always be in hearing distance from one stage or another. Not to mention the things going on in the tents around you... Off-site lodging Sometimes people prefer

As usual, there was a lot of speculation - mostly based on the lineups announced by other festivals, and the tour dates announced by the artists or the bands - about who will be the names supposed to draw
