Prepare for the heat
If you’ve been to Hungary in the summer you’ll know this, but damn the place gets HOT; it’s not unknown for the mercury to tip 40 C (104 F). Sunstroke at a festival is the absolute worst, so pack a hat, drink plenty of water and don’t skimp on the sunscreen.
Dogs allowed…sort of
Can’t bear to leave your pooch at home? O.Z.O.R.A does allow them on-site, though the organisers are understandably not effusive in their desire to have their festival inundated with packs of play-fighting pups: “We don’t advise you to bring your dog to the festival for many reasons, but it’s not forbidden,” they say.
Careful with what you bring
As you may expect at a festival where you can dance until dawn and beyond, there are quite a lot of "naughty things" around. But be warned that the authorities are also highly aware of this, so you can expect to be searched by police and sniffer dogs on your way into the festival.

Festivals with a strong communal and spiritual outlook tend to have quality vegan options, and this is no different. First priority to try is Green Fusion, who will be traveling up from nearby Szeged where they have their own restaurant.
Fire safety first
Fires are actually allowed on-site, and become the central communal point for many loose early morning convos. But be super vigilant if you do light one, the ground is bone dry and the last thing you’ll want to experience is watching your tent burst into flames, and its ashes go fluttering off into the moonlight.
Don’t miss the collective Om in the Chillout Dome
There’s no better way to end the day – or perhaps finish your night – than a collective Om with your new spiritual fam. Embrace the synergy and you never know: Enlightenment might just find you….
