Sziget returned for its 20th year to the shores of the river Danube, firming up its position as both Hungary's leading festival and one of Europe's most exciting. With 75,000 punters a day revelling in one of the loudest sound systems Q has heard (take note Hyde Park), a small contingent of UK punters were spoilt for choice with a great line-up.
Snoop Dogg's headlining act on Saturday arguably stole the show, closing out to a mass arm in arm sing song on his collaboration with Wiz Khalifa, Young, Wild & Free. Other highlights included a triumphant Stone Roses set ending with them arm in arm (always a good sign), a raucous Two Door Cinema Club (pictured) set showcasing some of their new album to ground stomping appreciation and a relatively stripped back set from The xx - perhaps a little mournful for the sunshine and smiley faces.
Q's act of the weekend: Gypsy Hill
An outside bet but a gem of a find in the smaller and more traditional Roma tent. This multi genre collective seem to delve into anything that gets the party started and not only put on a show that lifted the roof off, but also got a small boy on stage to play a kazoo. And who doesn't like a kazoo?
