Sziget Festival is the reigning ‘Best European Major Festival’ award winner and aims to keep this title with its original program and unique atmosphere. When Szitizens go through the legendary bridge they arrive to an Island with extraordinary visuals and decorations.
We can easily describe the location as ‘a great place to get lost’ as you can choose from more than 50 program venues with around 1000 programs at the week-long event. In addition, the amazing city of Budapest is a capital also worth to explore.
The biggest music stages host a colorful line-up of all genres, including Robbie Williams, Florence + The Machine, Alt-J, Martin Garrix, Foals, Interpol and many many more! The new names:
Main Stage & A38
Straight from the UK to the stages of Sziget arrives one of the most successful English indie rock bands, Kasabian. Their fifth album was released last year, so get ready to rock the Sziget Main Stage with them. In addition, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ellie Goulding will have her debut also on the biggest stage of the Island of Freedom. The sound of her music is an utterly distinctive and unforgettable one.
The A38 will be loud from the music of Sigma, who are now international chart toppers. Their iconic first number one single, “Nobody To Love” was followed up by another chart topper when their second single, “Changing” ft. Paloma Faith, was released. British electronic music trio, Nero, is also among the prestigious line-up of the huge tent. Their newest work has been released just recently, check out 'The Thrill'. Coming from Germany Kraftklub will merge indie rock tunes with German lyrics.
Telekom Arena & Colosseum
More names are also added to the electronic music venues: the massive Telekom Arena and the unique Colosseum. Here Szitizens can enjoy the music presented by Hernan Cattaneo, a DJ who has a dedication to quality underground sounds when it comes to house music. In addition, the Northern house and techno starlet Laura Jones, the true underground techno hero Function, prominent member of Berlin's vibrant electronic club scene Ellen Allien and a respected exponent of the contemporary house and techno scene Damian Lazarus will also be there to keep the party going at Sziget. Stadium X will bring the electronic vibes from the festival’s host city Budapest, while the Dutch duo of Lucas & Steve will also impress the crowd with their set.
More names, venues, programs will arrive in the upcoming weeks!
