Sziget Festival has just announced the next band to play the Main Stage of the event: Nashville rock band Kings of Leon.
“We have been trying to lure the band for years, and now, after a negotiation marathon, we finally did it,” Gerendai Károly said, “because – as they are not in Europe at that time and they usually have just a handful of gigs in the summer – we had to get them to fly over the ocean just for us.”
Judging by the comments at our previous posts, Kings of Leon will be an act that divides: some of our visitors expressed their contempt with the band, others would rather see some other major rock name (especially Muse) to take the stage.
Here is a taste of what to expect at the Main Stage of Sziget on the 15th of August:
I think there are still many names to be announced, so stay tuned.

In other news, Snoop Dogg’s website has seemingly confirmed the artist to perform at Sziget on the same date. But, as @rambo joe frickle pointed out (thanks!), the dates coincide perfectly with those of Awolnation, so it’s more likely to be an error rather than a self-confirmation. We’ll keep an eye out for further announcements about this topic, but you should not have high hopes for such an announcement just yet.
