Sziget Festival has a new management - and it clearly has a brand new way of revealing the artists, DJs, and other performers taking one of its stages in August. The event's last announcement, made on January 29, was great news for most of the attendees - and hopefully, the names below will also not be a disappointment. So, without further ado, here they are: Dua Lipa Gorillaz Shawn Mendes Stormzy The War on Drugs Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker Lianne La Havas Desiigner King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard Gorgon City live JP Cooper Petit Biscuit Borgore Zhu KSHMR

Kendrick Lamar announcement

Unlike in the previous years, when December saw the first announcement (or two) regarding the lineup of the event in the coming year, this year Sziget took its time. It has prepared to announce part of its lineup in December but delayed it at the time, citing its need for "a bit more time" to put together a relevant announcement for its fans. And the day has finally come: Sziget has announced the first artists, bands, and DJs to take its stages this August.

A new year has come - unfortunately, with no new participants to Sziget Festival announced by the organizers. But life doesn't stop because of this delay. Neighboring Romania has its own - growing - festival scene with events being announced and performers being booked across the year.

We've already covered the lineup Electric Castle has announced so far in this article so we won't do it again, especially since the festival hasn't announced any new names yet.
