If you are thinking of going to this or any festival in a country where you are not a citizen, be sure you fully understand local laws. Hungary has a zero tolerance drunk driving law, and the penalties for psychedelic drugs could land you in jail for a few years.
Any person who produces, manufactures, acquires, possesses, imports or exports narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances into or from Hungary or who transports such substances through the territory of Hungary is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for one to five years.The legal consequences are less severe in case of a small quantity of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances. Any person who produces, manufactures, acquires, possesses, imports or exports a small quantity of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances into or from Hungary or who transports such through the territory of Hungary is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for up to two years.
Any person who consumes or acquires a small quantity of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances for personal consumption is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for up to two years. The abuse of new psychoactive substances is also prohibited. This means any designer drugs.
Any person who imports or exports new psychoactive substances into or from Hungary or who transports such through the territory of Hungary, or produces, offers, supplies, or is engaged in the distribution or dealing in new psychoactive substances, is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment for up to three years.
