Sziget Festival 2012 has been going on for some days, but yesterday was the official opening with artists such as Placebo and others performing. A new thing this year is that the festival is broadcasted on YouTube, so there you can follow the events on the Main Stage, A38 Stage and the Otp Bank World Stage live… This is an amazing chance to enjoy the festival live on the net, especially for those who would like to be there, but could not be there for some reason.

Don’t you know what Sziget Festival is? It is one of the best festivals in Europe, and each summer about 400 artists come to perform at this event in front of several hundred thousand people dancing, singing along and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere on this great festival in Budapest.

Tonight, August 9th, you can for example see the follow artists live:
Tankcsapda, Citizens, Korn, Maxima Park, Caro Emerald and quite some more.

On August 10th, you can see the following artists live:
Viza, The Black Seeds, Wild Beasts, La Selva Sur, Compact Disco, La Brass Banda, Bebel Gilberto, Roy Paci, Shantel and quite some more…

On August 11th you can see the following artists live:
Jungle by Night, Imam Baldi, Sergent Garcia, Two Door Cinema Club, Carbonfools, Sum 41, Molotov, Fink, Katzenjammer and some more….

On August 12th you can see the following artists live:
The Subways, Freshfabrik, Figli Di Madre Ignata, Paolo Nutini, Rotfront, Leningrad, The Ting Tings, Yonderboi and some more.

Still, there is a problem, and that is that this broadcast is supposed to be limited for people in Hungary, so for people surfing the net outside Hungary, this is supposed to be closed, and you will not be able to see it (you should still try though). If you try, and it does not work, the problem is that you do not have a Hungarian IP address and we have written some articles earlier about how you can fix that problem, and enjoy broadcasts limited to Hungary online from all around the world. If you are interested, check out the following two articles:

We wish you good luck and hope you will enjoy the live broadcast from Sziget Festival in Budapest and Hajógyári Sziget just as much as we do!
