Sziget Adds More Acts To Line-Up Including Macklemore, 6lack & Michael Kiwanuka
International superstars Macklemore, 6LACK and Michael Kiwanuka are today announced as the final additions to Sziget’s incredible genre-spanning line-up.

They join the likes of previously announced headliners Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine, Foo Fighters, The 1975, Post Malone, Twenty One Pilots, Martin Garrix and The National and other acts including James Blake, Richard Ashcroft, Mura Masa, Years & Years, IDLES, Jungle, Johnny Marr, Tove Lo, IAMDDB, Masego and more. 

Multi-Grammy Award-winning Macklemore shot to fame in 2012 with his unavoidably catchy summer single Thrift Shop. With numerous Billboard Hot 100 number ones under his belt and a discography of hit after hit, his performance at Sziget promises to be unmissable. 

Atlanta-born 6LACK is best known for his unwaveringly honest and brooding take on hip-hop, covering topics including heartbreak and loss and earning multiple Grammy award nominations along the way. 

English folk-rock singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka has also earned himself nominations multiple honours including the Brit Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, Mercury Prize, BBC Music Awards. His profound ruminations on his own inner turmoil come out in beautifully raw vocals that continue to captivate audiences across the globe. 

Sziget brings together a programme of world music, theatre, cabaret, installations, performances and art. Set in the heart of Budapest on Óbuda Island, Sziget is a community built festival and known as the 'Island of Freedom'.
