A fitting location when the Russian activists address Sziget Festival.
They drew huge crowds and made a massive impact when they spoke at Glastonbury in June and now Pussy Riot are heading for Budapest. More specifically, The Island Of Freedom, as they are confirmed last minute for this year's Sziget Festival.
Sziget, a favourite with Irish music fans so inclined to follow festival season around Europe, kicks off today and runs for the entire week, boasting a line-up that includes Florence + The Machine, Marina & The Diamonds, alt-J, Foals, Interpol and more.
The public, interactive roundtable discussion of the pussy revolution will be take place on August 14, featuring Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina.
Their fee will go to a human rights organisation of their choosing.
