The Modern Narnia? This festival toilet door holds a very special secret for those in the know

Festival toilets are usually the worst part of the whole summer experience between the queues and the god awful stench they are not a pleasant place to be to say the least.

However music fans looking to ‘spend a penny’ at the popular Hungarian music festival Sziget were treated to a bit of a surprise, as not all the porta loos were quite as they seemed. The festival provided a bit of an unexpected root into the “rave” scene as one special toilet provided a gateway into a separate secret area, not listed in the programme and only accessible either by word of mouth or sheer luck. Part us hopes, however, that a person rather desperate for the loo didn’t mistake the queue for this stage as the queue for the actual toilets.  There are no reports of anyone actually mistaking the stage as a toilet, so it seems as there were no little accidents in this particular porta loo.

Sziget, which attracts revellers from all over the world, kept very quiet about this secret stage. There was little to no mention of it and fans only heard about it through word of mouth. Sziget is often praised for its ingenuity and has been consistently voted as one of the best festivals in Europe and this fun addition offers another demonstration as to why they are deserving of such praise. Sziget attracts some of the biggest artists in the world with this year’s edition featuring P!NK, Kasabian and Wiz Khalifa amongst many. This move however, demonstrates that music festivals are not just about the headliners, but the smaller stages are often providing of the most entertainment especially if there is an air of mystery to them.

Festivals of England take note, despite being a slightly odd inclusion to the billing, it has been a significant topic of conversation since the festivals conclusion. Could this become a feature at some festivals closer to home? Who knows……
