I've been to concerts and I've been to Lollapalooza but the Sziget Music Festival reigns alone as the best overall concert experience that I have yet experienced. I went in 2006 with my girlfriend at the time (who is Hungarian) and a group of her friends. That year Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand and a bunch of Hungarian bands were playing.
Sziget is held on a large island in the middle of the Danube. The lack of cars and interaction with the rest of Budapest make for a safer experience and really enhance the feeling of an overall experience. Over the years the festival has expanded to multiple stages and there are also many activities in which to participate. One of my favorite memories was rocking out in the Silent Disco. If you've never been to one, everyone gets a set of headphones which plays the music that everyone is dancing to. People dance and sing along, but if you take off your headphones you see a writhing, chaotic mass of people reacting to a secret melody.
