Sziget Festival | Iron Maiden | Muse

Special train to Hungary

Only about another seven weeks until the party is on in Budapest and the starting signal for the 18th Sziget Festival is heard. From August 12th through the 16th, plus the warm-up phase, which starts on August 9th, the Danube Island Obudai in the heart of the Hungarian capital will again be declared party island. In 2010, the line-up consists of Iron Maiden, Muse, Faithless, Madness, Kasabian, Gentleman, The Hives, Papa Roach, Monster Magnet, Paradise Lost, Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club, Deadmau5 and the Toy Dolls. This year again, about 400,000 fans are expected, who want to enjoy more than 1000 events on the 60 stages Having said that, only about one-third of the visitors will actually be from Hungary. True to this year's motto "Meeting Point Europe" the program isn't the only thing which has gotten more international. Most of the fans will also be coming from the neighboring countries. So that the journey there doesn't already turn chaotic, but remains relaxed, the organizers have again taken matters into their own hands and rented two entire trains for their fans from the Netherlands and Germany alone.

The Sziget Express sets out in Amsterdam and will make stopover Utrecht, Arnheim, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich. A ticket costs 158 Euro with a seat reservation and 189 Euro if you chose a place on the sleeping-car. It's the cheaper travel alternative. . If you want to make the journey the destination and want to party while traveling there, you should take the Sziget party train. It's also a little faster, since the route leads from Amsterdam directly via Utrecht and Cologne to Budapest. Two big party cabins, an excellent DJ line-up and first class on-board catering will provide festival worthy atmosphere. The price for the journey on the party train runs 270 Euro for a seat and 300 Euro for sleeping quarters. In addition, you'll receive a festive breakfast, champagne, a generous supply of deposit tokens for drinks, and of course an unforgettable party. Tickets for the special trains are available through the official Sziget homepage.
