Franz Ferdinand @ Sziget Festival, 8 August
Franz Ferdinand (formed in 2002) is a Scottish indie/alternative rock four-piece, led by frontman Alex Kapranos, hailing from Glasgow, Scotland.

Although the genre of post-punk isn't new, Franz Ferdinand was at the forefront of its revival during the mid-2000s in the United Kingdom.

Franz Ferdinand has a certain sound that anyone can pick up as soon as you hear one of their songs. Although their realm of music is saturated with artists all doing the same thing, you can always tell a Franz Ferdinand song as soon as you hear the first few notes, even before singer Alex Kapranos begins to sing.

Date and time:
Thursday, 8 August, 5:45 pm 

Tickets: 
Daily: HUF 23,500

Venue: 
Sziget Festival
1033 Budapest, Óbudai-sziget
