Foo Fighters @ Sziget Festival, 13 August
The last great American “arena rock band” will return to Hungary for the epic Sziget Festival this year.

The Foo Fighters was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the death of Kurt Cobain and the resulting dissolution of his previous band. 

In the decades since the 1995 release of Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear have grown into a dominant force on the global festival, stadium and arena circuit.

The Seattle formed band’s massive catalogue of gold and platinum albums has won 11 Grammys, four Brit Awards, sold 25+ million records, and is the backbone of marathon shows powered by singalong anthems “Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “My Hero,” “Learn To Fly,” “All My Life,” “Best Of You,” “The Pretender,” “Walk,” “Something From Nothing” and more.

Tuesday, 13 August, 8:30 pm
