- Manu Chao
- Kaiser Chiefs
- Boys Noise
- Dillon Francis
- DJ Sliink
Hardwell to perform Sziget 2016’s End Show
Hardwell surely doesn’t need any introduction for EDM lovers. His performances are spectacular, and his mixes are packed with the latest and greatest hits. The Dutch progressive / electro-house DJ has millions of fans around the world. Despite his frail age, he was named the best DJ in the world by DJ Mag twice already.
Manu Chao is also returning to Sziget this year. His music is a combination of styles from all over the world. Expect another great, atmospheric performance on the Main Stage on the 12th.
The Kaiser Chiefs has made its debut in 2005, and what a debut – a five-time platinum! The band represents one of the most authentic indie rock sound in the United Kingdom, and in many other parts of the world, for sure. Ricky Wilson is considered one of the most entertaining live performers – hopefully, he will continue this tradition at Sziget 2016 – on the 15th.
FIDLAR is one of the most popular skate punk/garage punk bands in LA, partly because their songs have been used in a number of video games and TV series. They will show their worth to Szitizens on the 16th.
Boys Noize comes to Sziget from Germany, where he has received a series of awards for his work. The electronic music artist plays a suggestive, liberal techno and electro. He was rewarded with the award for the best electro act at Beatport three times in a row. We’ll have the chance to see (hear) fo ourselves on the 12th.
Dillon Francis is a 28-year-old American electronic musician, producer and DJ from LA – the second act to come all the way from the East Coast to Central Europe. His tunes are perfect for killing brain cells (Sziget’s words), so expect an insane party when he performs on stage (at a yet undisclosed date).
Swing and hip-hop mixed with jazz – this is the sound you can expect from Sweden’s sleaziest and most exciting band, Movits! They are currently on tour with their fourth album. Expect a crazy, funny and “dancy” party on the 11th.
Vinai is another EDM act, consisting of two young Italian brothers, Alessandro and Andrea. Their music is grandiose, ecstatic and immersive, as you will be able to see on the 12th.
Last, but not least, let us mention DJ Sliink, the 24-year-old jersey club performer. Among his fans, we find prominent names like Diplo and Skrillex. His performance is expected to be dynamic and exciting – on the 11th.
