As if going to Sziget – one of the most exciting music festivals in Europe with like, a gazillion different acts in the heart of uber-cool Budapest (phewf!) – wasn’t enough, on this trip we’ll also be taking the time to sail the beautiful Croatian coastline en route. Back on the coach, we’ll venture through stunning Dubrovnik, Sarajevo and Belgrade before rocking out with over 400,000 other punters in Hungary’s capital. Budapest never looked so hot.
