NIGHT OWLS : Sziget festival.
IF you have been bitten by festival fever then there's no reason why you should suffer just because you are on holidays.
This year Budapest's Sziget festival is good enough to rival infamous gigs such as Oxegen, Glastonbury and The Reading festival.
Acts such as Franz Ferdinand, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Basement Jaxx, Natalie Imbruglia and Underworld will take to the stage during the week-long event.
For those who prefer to stay off the beaten track the dance stage, the world stage, the jazz and blues stage and the eclectic stage will satisfy your needs.
It's held in 60 venues over the city, but just because it's an outdoor festival doesn't mean you have to slum it. Banks, restaurants, post offices, pubs, shops and resting facilities will be provided.
And if at any stage the music gets too much you can wander into a literary reading, a classical music event or an art exhibition.
The Sziget festival runs from August 10-16 so if you are the Hungarian capital at this time check it out. For more information and tickets log on to www.sziget.hu
