Arctic Monkeys is the name you’ve all been waiting for – and as it turns out, you were right. The Sheffield rock band with six BRIT Awards and three Grammy nominations under their belt will join the lineup of Sziget 2018 as a headliner, playing the Main Stage on the 14th of August this year, between 21:30 and 23:30 – a two-hour show. And they might also have quite a few new things to show off, as they have started recording their latest studio album in September 2017, for a 2018 release.
Although they promised an announcement to be made at 12 CET, they made it a bit early this time, surprising everyone (including us) ;).
The lineup of the 2018 edition of Sziget Festival is starting to take shape. The organizers have announced not only the names of their headliners but also the time at which they will take the stage (for some):
- Arctic Monkeys will play on the 14th between 21:30 and 23:30
- Kendrick Lamar will take the stage on the 8th (Day -1/Day 1)
- Kygo will play on the 13th
- Mumford and Sons will play on the 11th
For the rest of the acts, we’ll have to wait further.
