Xpat Community Ezine / Monday 10 August 2015
Dear Member, Since Sziget is officially the 'Best Major European Festival'...

We thought it useful to dig into the program details and see what’s in it for you from an Xpat perspective - the results of which you can see below, in this special Sziget Round-Up for Xpats.

Last night we were on the Istand of Freedon during the final set-up, and even after midnight there were lines of visitors, with heavy travel bags, waiting to get in and pitch their tents...

So we’re lucky this mega cultural festival is on our door-step here in Budapest, and it’s also lucky that we have a few Sziget tickets to give away to Xpats in Hungary...

In case you’d like to get a Day Ticket to see a star of your choice live, be it Robbie; Florence; Ellie G; Goran B, or your fav festival band playing here this year - like Kings Of Leon or Limp Bizkit, to name just two - all you have to do is contact us and write why ‘Xpats Love Sziget’.

It couldn’t be easier to win, just click here now to enter, remembering to include your name and a local mobile number so we can call you if you’re a winner. You might also like to note if you could go all week, as we have a VIP Week Pass to give away too!

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below.
Yours sincerely with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com

Sziget o'clock has arrived, and as your (p)leisure time is valuable we've reviewed the whole line-up and come up with a short-list of the top names playing live this year. We've been picky, and kept it all focused on the most famous names in the music biz. It goes without saying that tastes vary, so we're just aiming to remind you of the top headliners, plus one or two special picks from the vast variety of sounds playing around The Island of Freedom. more »
