2012: Day -1
Day -1 was a scorcher! The official temperature was 36°C, but the temperature in the direct sun must have reached even higher levels. The Main Stage was adorned with sprinklers above the crowd. But as the sun set the tempearture dropped to a less extreme level, and the crowds gathered for the performance of Daloskönyv and their many friends on the Main Stage.
Sziget has begun!

2012: 20 Years of Sziget! We're ready for another round
Last year we passed a milestone when Andras Frenyo took panoramic photos on his 10th Sziget festival (see below). But this year we're humbled by the 20th anniversary edition of the Sziget festival. Wow!
We're ready for another round. Are you?
2011: It's our birthday!
Can you believe we've been doing this for 10 years?
This year marks the 10th year Andras Frenyo is taking panoramas at the Sziget Festival. He started out in 2001, but did not make it to Sziget 2003. Starting from 2005 he invited a varying team of panorama photographers to join his celebration of all that makes Sziget such an awesome festival.
So if you see this guy, buy him a beer. He'll have lots of stories to tell you. And he might just take a panorama photo of you, if you gather some of your friends around him.

2011: Pre-festival: We're ready for you Sziget!
We're prepped and ready to start taking wicked pictures of Sziget Festival 2011! Our international team of veteran Sziget panorama-photographers is on site, or will be arriving shortly.
If, in the next few days, you see a photographer with a camera on a stick or a tripod, frantically taking images in odd directions, it is probably one of us, having fun...
We're stoked. Are you?
On a practical note: if you want one of us to take a picture of you and your friends, make sure you look your prettiest and gather around us! Like the group of Italians last year. We respond to offers of beer.

2011: Pre-festival: A stage fit for a Prince
The festival hasn't even started, and we're already on the job. Krisztina and Sandor, two of our Hungarian panorama-photographers, explored the island when the main stages were being constructed. Can you believe Prince will be performing on this stage in a couple of days? Can you believe how green the island looks?
