Sziget – the Island of TRUE Love

Back in 1997 (I think) I had a Sziget Love affair, with a guy from the Netherlands as a matter of fact. Back then Sziget was dusty and beer was cheap and bad. Our love story did not turn out to be film worthy, but we are still friends.

Saskia from Zimbabwe and Remco form the Netherlands met on a Placebo concert on the first day od Sziget 2012. Love at first sight and a week long romance that had to end when the two had to go home. A year of texting, skyping and some tipsy phone calls later and they meet again on Sziget 2013.

Sziget had a xmas challenge on Facebook in December and our guy Remco from the story here wished to spend and celebrate this year’s festival with his love from Zimbabwe, and he won. But even though they got the tickets for Sziget even 4 days before Sziget it didn’t look like this Christmas wish is going to come true, until Sziget interfered and flew Saskia over to meet her love again.

High five for Sziget Love!
