Part of UK in Hungary

12th August 2011

Sziget Music Festival Day 1 (part 3)

And it’s another year when British bands dominate the Pop-Rock Main Stage at Hungary’s Sziget Festival – 14 out of a total of 25 acts this week are from the UK. All evidence of the continuing strength of our creative industries. Last band up tonight is Pulp.
And for those of you still going strong at midnight, the British Council awaits you for a slow dance at the Paradise and Hugging Tent every night this week from 11pm to 1am. It involves tongue twisters, relationship building, English Language exams and the opportunity to see how everything is connected and the world can open up to you. Don’t ask! Go see. I’m told free hugs are available….
