Sziget

You have to give it to the Hungarians: they know how to organise a major music festival. Reserve a whole island in the middle of the Danube for the event, organise boats to take visitors there, put lots of stages, organise a camp site, invite lots of artists, make sure there's enough beer and food for everybody and last, but not least, sell the tickets cheap enough that people don't think twice about buying one. 8000 HUF (20 pounds) for a whole day when you can see dozens of groups live is nothing. When the main act of the day are The Killers, it's peanuts!
