Reserve a Budapest hostel for the Sziget festival
Music fans who fancy checking out a festival off the beaten track might like to take a trip to Hungary next month.

Booking a cheap hostel in Budapest will be well worth it for those who want to go to the Sziget festival, which has many top bands on show.

The line-up features heavy metal icons Iron Maiden, rock band Muse, Thirty Seconds to Mars and dance outfit Faithless, who are all headlining a night each.

Those thinking of taking in the event might like to book a Budapest hostel between August 11th and 16th, when the extravaganza takes place.

But the older generation may appreciate the appearances of Madness - who are headlining the main stage on August 11th - and UB40, who are doing the same on August 10th.

Other top acts that may be worth checking out include The Cribs, Mika, The Hives and Leicestershire group Kasabian.

And Iron Maiden fans attending the event will be in for a treat as the band are set to play a track from their forthcoming album The Final Frontier, which is released on the last day of the festival.

The group - who have been active since 1975 - feature singer Bruce Dickinson, bass player Steve Harris, guitarists Janick Gers, Adrian Smith and Dave Murray, as well as drummer Nico McBrain.

In addition, individuals attending the occasion will be able to pay with euros at the commercial units, while there will also be money exchange booths around for people to change their cash into Hungarian Forints.
