Roundup: Rammstein and other bands in Europe During Sziget 2016

Another week has passed without any new names announced by Sziget 2016. There is a lot of speculation about Radiohead possibly making it to the festival, but there’s nothing confirmed just yet. However, there is still a lot of time left until the final lineup of the festival to be announced. Until then, let’s see a few bands, like Rammstein and Nightwish, that are in Europe close to the dates of the festival, which could still be announced to play at Sziget 2016.

Rammstein

Nightwish

Nightwish has been to Sziget twice before, in 2001 and 2002. The band has already announced a series of festival gigs for this year, including Rock in Reiver in May, Greenfield Festival in June and Bråvalla Festival in July. For August, they only have two gigs announced: Himos Park in Jämsä (Finland) on the 20th of August, and CZAD Festival in Poland (between 25-28 August).

Rammstein

Rammstein is well known for its amazing live performances – and such a name would be a great attraction for this year’s Sziget. And they might make it – their live schedule contains a series of festival gigs, including Rock Werchter, Gods Of Metal in Monza or the Paris and Donington editions of Download.

For August, Rammstein has only one gig announced – Highfield in Grosspoesna (Germany) between the 19th and 21st of August. Apparently they are free during at least a few days of Sziget 2016.

Tiësto

He needs no introduction – Tiësto is perhaps the best known DJ of our times. And he will be in Europe in August – Untold Festival (4-8 August) has announced him as one of its headliners.

Steve Aoki

Another popular act of our days, the Japanese-American DJ has announced a series of tour dates in Europe for the summer. For August, he has announced a gig for Chiemsee Summer (Ubersee, Germany – August 27th), so he is apparently (still) free during Sziget 2016.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

RHCP will be in Europe starting this June, playing at events like Rock am Ring, Roskilde Festival and Rock Werchter. For August, they only have one gig announced – the Reading Leeds Festival, between the 26th and the 27th.

Die Antwoord

The South African band is in Europe this summer, but they have no tour dates announced after June (they’ll be at the We Are Electric in Eindhoven).

And the list of bands could go on forever…

…but I’ll just stop speculating. We are still early in the year, and lots of bands have yet to announce their upcoming gigs. So, stay tuned!

Update:

Reading/Leeds has just announced its second wave of acts. The list contains names like Foals, Disclosure, Jack Ü, Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club, Fetty Wap, Nothing But Thieves, Crystal Castles, Parkway Drive, The Internet, Hannah Wants and Oliver Heldens. Some of these artists might also show up in the 2016 Sziget lineup!

  1. My heart lost a beat the moment I read the name of this post cause I read “Rammstein” and I thought it was a leaked news of an announcement

  2. Radiohead will be in USA on early August and in Summersonic in Japan 20-21 August. I really hope these rumors about Sziget are true 🙂

    Some other bands touring this summer : The Last Shadow Puppets, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Eagles of Death Metal, New Order, Tame Impala

  3. @Pierre Arcade Fire will only play 2 european festivals this year, the already announced BBK and Nos Alive.

    Also The Chemical Brothers will be in Europe in August as they’ll play sw4 the 28th. And, obviously, RHCP will be at Reading & Leeds.

  4. @Bender

    Where did you read that Arcade Fire would only play 2 European festivals? They are the band i most want to see in the World so would be gutted if i have tickets for the wrong festival. Guess i should have waited to buy, ho hum.

  5. We just had some new names for balaton sound and if I remember correctly from the past few years, a spigot announcement should fallow within 15 days or so… fingers crossed for rammstein (even though I love nightwish I think we can only hope for them if they do a metal day with both rammstein and nightwish like they did in 2012 but that seems unlikely)

  6. Is it sure Gorillaz won’t be in tour this summer?
    I saw their gig back in 2010 at Glastonbury, massive.

    I repeat my bets, whose are:
    Two Door Cinema Club
    Parkway Drive
    Daughter
    Jamie XX
    Sia

  7. @Yelo Gorillaz is expected to release a new album this year, which means that they will also (probably) go on tour. But right now there are no gigs announced, no information available about any live performances.

  8. Is it sure Gorillaz won’t be in tour this summer?
    I saw their gig back in 2010 at Glastonbury, massive.

    I repeat my bets, whose are:
    Two Door Cinema Club
    Rammstein
    Parkway Drive
    Daughter
    Jamie XX (!!!)
    Sia (!!!)
    PJ Harvey (!!!)
    Disclosure
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    The 1975
    Jack U
    Nothing But Thieves

    I dont think there will be any of Imagine Dragons or Eagles of Death Metal

    Name I do consider, even if there are no hint about: The Offspring, Editors, Tiesto.

  9. I’m expecting that I will be fighting an uphill battle with the Sziget announcements in the coming weeks, because I have about the same names on my list, but I hardly want any of them. Maybe with the exception of Jack Ü, Offspring and Tiesto. I need a big bunch of rabbits pulled out of black hats.. If there’s any truth in Sum 41 being moved to day -1 also, it’s another slap in a face..

    Hoping for Ezra Furman, Biffy Clyro, Belle & Sebastian, NOFX, Royal Republic & The Boss Hoss..

    Luckily there will be beer no matter what 🙂

  10. Im not of your opinion about those names, I mean, it’s a matter of fact, but it would be a pleasure to me to know that there will be all of those, maybe ‘cept for The 1975 and Two Door Cinema Club.

    Still waiting, I guess

  11. I am hoping for Disclosure, LCD Soundsystem and The Last Shadow Puppets from Lowlands. Damian Marley would be cool, as well, but he seems to already have a concert in Budapest, on August 30.

  12. Sziget’s official Facebook page posted a pic today, telling us that they promise new names will come soon. I wonder if those will be sooner than mid-February.

  13. “Soon” in the festival world usually means in a couple of days. I would guess Monday if it were any other festival, but with Sziget you just never know 😉

    Lowlands annoucement was poor, but I will guess that a few of the names will be the same. Oscar & The Wolf + Eagles of Death Metal out of them could be ok though. In addition maybe some additional EDM-names if they’re going for the Party Arena again this year…

  14. Cheers @Bender for the Arcade fire info,

    Just booked NOS Alive as for me their line-up is the best i have ever seen

  15. @jjason I’m also going to NOS Alive, mainly for Arcade Fire (being almost exclusive in 2016!!!).
    You going alone?

  16. Hello Noeliam,

    I am going with my wife for our first year wedding anniversary. The line-up is beyond perfect as I love Arcade fire, Radiohead, Pixies, John Grant, Tame Impala, Courtney Barnett & Jagwar Ma. Seen all of them live apart from Cortney Barnett and Arcade Fire and they were all truly amazing. Can’t afford the festival as traveling from Wales but just booked it anyway and staying in every weekend until the debt is cleared, so probably until July.

  17. ahaha @jjason well done! Dreams are made to be fulfilled! And good festivals are always worth it, specially with such a great lineup. I think this year we’ll share a lot of names with Reading and Leeds, I’m not so sure about RHCP ( I think sziget will try to get cheaper headliners first). Yes, except for them I agree with al the bands @Yelo named. But I do think Eagles of Death Metal will come.

  18. jjason, you are my hero! Thats so cool to take wedding anniversary trip to festival! Last year we were in our engagement trip with my fiance @Sziget. This year will be huge, my 10th anniversary in Sziget, my hopes about line up are high, so far so good! (ramm-stein!, thats the dream!)

  19. Some people love movies, theatre, dance, porn, opera and pub culture. I like them all apart from dance but i love live music. XXX

  20. Summerwell, a small weekend festival from Romania, which takes place on 13-14 August, announced their first names: Hurts, The 1975, Years & Years, The Neighbourhood and Sundara Karma. Last year Sziget had lots of names from this festival’s line-up, so I expect some names from here for 2016 as well.

  21. Oh my… totally hope they won’t take inspiration from that announcement. Personally I cant stand one single band of those, ‘cept for The Neighbourhood and maybe a little of Sundara Karma. That ‘s that kind of indie pop that any festival should totally get rid of: the audience focuses on 15-16 little guys, the bands usually have poor live presence and live performances and in many case poor music at all.
    Of course there are exceptions, but I think that is the trend

  22. Summer Well’s last year line-up:

    Day 1 – Circa Waves, Kwabs, The Maccabees, La Roux, Foals
    Day 2 – Sohn, Foxes, Jungle, The Wombats, Kasabian

    If I remember correctly, 8 out of 10 from the above were at Sziget.

  23. Yeah, you’re right… I don’t know why I thought that Circa Waves and The Wombats were also here. 🙂

  24. Well we talked there about ’em a lot in the latest year, but we all know about the line up’s issue in which Sziget came in last year.

    Im scared to death by the observation you did few posts ago, 3 out of 5 of the names announced at Summer Well would fit into Main Stage composition for sure and I really think it would be a waste of spots…

    Man I hope they will release new names very soon

  25. The 1975, Years & Years
    wanna see them

    Hutrs won’t come for sure, they’re at Strand Festival (or gow is it named) one week after Sziget

  26. Am I evil to be happy for one of those trash festival of commercial house and shit to have bankrupted?
    Or does that should makes us think about the migration of shitty djs in other festivals?

    And number one question: what end will Tomorrowland and co do?

  27. Ha ha ha, I am happy as well. They hope that they’ll get 115M dollars financing, if the court will approve it.

  28. VOLT announces new names on the 10th of February. Does this mean that we’ll see new names at Sziget one week earlier? 😀

  29. My guesses for next Sziget announcement are:
    Red Hot Chili Peppers
    Sia
    Jack Ü (End Show)
    Die Antwoord
    The 1975
    Eagles of Death Metal
    Stormzy
    Nothing But Thieves

  30. I also hope for Rammstein (would rather have them than RHCP), Jamie XX and a surprise out of nowhere (whether small like Flume or big like Muse!)

  31. Disclosure super likely to be in the announcement (as a headliner). And Rammstein more likely than RHCP in my opinion.

  32. Jack U so much better closing than all the other edm djs all with the same setlist. Skrillex alone would be better, but you know you can’t have everything. Anyway I don’t know if they’ll announce so much names in one shot.

  33. In my opinion there will be a huge announcement jn terms of number of acts: the first annoncement of the new year is usually bigger, isnt it? 🙂

  34. We had an announcement last year on the 2nd of February, with Robbie Williams as a headliner. Other names came on the 10th of February, but this time I also think that we’ll get a “2 in 1” announcement.

  35. U forgot RHCP, and dont forget the trash edm name. Jack U and Disclosure may be good (actually they are), but Sziget aint fed at EDM until they call one name in top 10 DJ Mag, y’all know it

  36. I can see some big pop name such as Rihanna instead of RHCP headlining one night and taking big part of the budget

  37. If god above listens to my prayers maybe by some miracle we can get tøp (they are free from august 12 to 26 when they go to reading/leeds) or p!atd (who i think don’t have shows after august 6). I pray everyday, everybody is welcome to join me 😀

  38. Well there are a lot of good names around. It’s not like the latest year where you had to pray for them to pick the 3-4 good names around, so it seems to me more likely they will have good calls.
    (I said that, alright, now they will call Justin Bibier, Avicii again, Calvin Harris who will play the guitar in solo for 4 hours and there will be a reunion of Jonas Brothers. Of course there will be a full Main Stage day dedicated to Rebecca Black who will play Friday in loop for like 11 hours)

  39. So ok, there will be announcement about World Stage, hooray…

    About the Sziget France page, they are very weird at media managing (does anyone remember the flop of the “big french name announcement” the day of the final for the sziget’s contest?).
    Anyway, 4 and 10 spaces. I point my fingers to RHCP and Disclosure right now. Any other suggestions?

  40. Ufortunately I think @yelo is right, but could the last part mean that there’s another announcement on the 14th?

  41. Sziget France posted 2 hours ago:

    Sziget France recherche l’amour.
    2 h ·
    Et si pour la Saint Valentin…????

    “Sziget France – looking for love
    What if for Valentine… :)”

    maybe a (the) big pop headliner?

  42. Of course, C2C was mental last year but they sold ’em like headliner ot at least MS stage, if I do remember well.
    I wouldnt be surprise if the hint is only about Disclosure and for the rest they are just trolling around (I would really appreciate, indeed)
    I think that this one will be a big announcement with 1-2 headliners, few names for main stage and a lot for a38 and world stage. Oh, yeah, and a lot of djs, Sziget Italy promised those, when the second announcement came up.
    Everything is fine with me as long as they know what are they doing!

    Tiesto has 6 words btw lol

  43. 5… letters, sorry. 😀

    5 letters, 14th of February, the big pop name? I think that OASIS would be the only band I would invest half budget of the festival to reform. Just kidding, we won’t see the two brothers together anytime soon.

    Muse also have 4 letters and they are in Europe at least until mid-June, but we don’t know yet what they’ll do in July and in August.

  44. LOL I’m a living failure when it comes to english sometimes. Touché!

    I dont think it will be Adele, to costy for what would come back, and neither BfmV, in this way of seeing thing I would call System of a Down, nah? 🙂

  45. sziget italia just posted something about “this year sold-out will be reached before the end of april… this year will be remembered…” and “main stage area will be full of people… do not miss monday announcement…”

    Better not disappoint us with this announcement mates

  46. And they also made a survey (on the italian facebook sziget 2016 event) called “who will be the surprise of this next announcement? the countdown has begun”

    they’re playing with fire man

  47. Massive Attack announced at Dimension Festival the 24th of August… Sziget should think about it.

    They are acting very confident this time, I think they finally got it (I hope so…)

  48. The only name big enough from the realistic options is RHCP. They haven’t played in Hungary since 96, and they are always lead the wishlist. I doubt that they will come though.

  49. I don’t know, but I really like this new approach of giving us some ‘hype’ on their international Facebook pages!

  50. I just hope that Sziget isn’t doing the same headliners as Werchter, as that would be kind of a waste of money for me. However Werchter looks bad this year, so I have to count on Sziget.

    Maybe they announce someone that hasn’t announced any tour yet. Green Day could be as rumours say they’re working on a new album. Hoping that Biffy Clyro, Kaiser Chiefs, Massive Attack and Tiesto is included in the announcement as well.

    However I don’t think that any of these bands, including RHCP and Rammstein would lad to selling out in April as Sziget Italy says. In that case they need something exclusive.

  51. Werchter has a bad lineup? LOL
    You mean that, in order, Rammstein, RHCP, Editors, Florence, At The Drive-In in reunion, Band of Horses, Daughter, Disclosure, Jamie XX, New Order, PJ Harvey, Tame Impala, The Last Shadow Puppets and The Offspring make a bad lineup?

    Oh Jesus Christ, I wish I had the money to afford a festival with THAT line up, bro

  52. I read again what Sziget Italia wrote and I don’t think that they meant that the festival will be sold out until the end of April… they said that the festival will be sold out this year and the post ended with “Don’t wait until the end of April”. They said that because in May the ticket prices will be higher, I guess. 🙂

  53. However, their second paragraph reffers indeed to an earlier sold out, but not necessarily for the end of April. A more realistic ‘target’ would be the end of May or June, I think.

  54. @yelo I’m guessing I’m a bit older than average in here, but I’ve been to Werchter three times before with great line ups and this time I’m actually considering selling the ticket. Last year was great, but this year The Offspring is the only band I’m really looking forward to seing (which again probably is due to age). Band of Horses, Låpsley and Daughters are ok and The Last Shadow Puppets could be interesting, but other than that most is just boring and I’ve seen most of them before. I need them to announce Springsteen or Pearl Jam for the last headline spot.

    I am however fully aware that my feelings probably isn’t the consensus among my fellow festival goers, but if Werchter and Sziget then start doing a lot of the same line-up I will be disappointed. There’s a reason I pick a major festival in each end of summmer, but luckily Sziget already have more bands announced that I want to see than Werchter. I therefore have high hopes for Sziget this year 🙂

    Let’s hope for a great announcement on Monday with a rabbit out of the hat of some kind and be happy that eveyone doesn’t like the same music. That would just mean too much of a crowd on your favourite gig 😉 I’m crossing my fingers for Tiesto, Jack Ü, Biffy, Belle & Sebastian, Kaiser Chiefs, Nothing But Thieves, Royal Republic or Ezra Furman.

  55. The Werchter lineup is amazing as always. Except they put Editors before RHCP? I don’t get that. But I won’t try to convince someone who wants tiesto or jack Ü -_- 😀
    Sziget will never have that lineup but thats not a problem, I prefer it like this. Its impossible to see everything at wercher, and there’s nothing more annoying than when your favourite band gets a 30-minute slot in the afternoon.

  56. @Sziget: they wrote “there will be sold-out this year. Don’t wait too much to get your tickets, otherwise you’ll risk to stay at home. Take it as an advice from a friend. Don’t wait until the end of april, buy them before”.
    I read this as: they expect sold out before may. But anyway.

    -Coldplay could be that band so mainstream and exclusive that makes you do sold out at sziget; cause they’re not doing festivals this season (exept for glasto maybe).
    -And also I don’t know if I trust Sziget France. They troll too much, even in the past, they play too much with my poor feelings.
    -What about the boss Bruce f*cking Springsteen at Sziget? insane
    -Elton John?
    They f*cked me up with this hype

  57. Yeah, it’s weird that Coldplay has gap in their US tour between 6th and 20th August…but who knows? It could be Gorillaz as well. They are working on album and there is still rumour that they could tour.

    And why has italian fb page like on Rihanna? Does it mean anything? Or they can like anybody they want? 😀

  58. I wouldn’t be excited about those names as much as I would be about Muse, Foo Fighters or Gorillaz, to be honest, miguel. I would rather listen to the reunited Guns N’ Roses instead of Bruce Springsteen or Elton John.

  59. @miguel Springsteen will probably do a European tour, but I doubt it will go on for three months at this stage (starting in May), so even if it would have been the best booking ever, I doubt it’s gonna happen. I guess i have to travel somewhere else in Europe to catch a couple of his gigs this year.

    I had a feeling about Rihanna for day -1 when she announced her tour, but even if that date is taken now, I still feel that it could be her as she fit Sziget’s profile more than Springsteen, Elton John etc.

    Gorillaz would be great, and I’d take them over Coldplay any day (unless they promise to only play the old stuff) 😉

    I also think Noel Gallagher could be included and maybe even considered as a headliner at Sziget.

  60. @Sziget, I’m not telling those are my favorite names for sziget. Just some surprisese we could have. GnR are out of the question for me, too expensive. Muse could be. Foos finished their tour.
    I’ve always said I bet on Rihanna for pop headliner, maybe she will be in this announcement with 1 or 2 big bands.
    We just have to wait and see if there’s some big name to get crazy for. Or to hope for john doe or some alter ego of him

  61. Guys I will keep my hopes NOT so high. Sziget Italy repeated times and times that Sziget is not only about big names; I think that to call people like Springsteen or Elton, or even that Coldplay people (god saves us from one of their live show), is a job that only Glasto and Coachella can do nowadays. Also, Springsteen would be really pissed off to play for just 90 minutes.
    I think Gorillaz is more affordable and viable option, even if they arent in tour, like they did with Kings of Leon last year (only that in this case it would be cool and not boring).

    @Tmolvik: I see your opinion here and I understand it, still I cant find the Werchter’s one a bad lineup – but I would be deluded too if I paid 2 tickets for the exact lineup.

    @Camper: Im starting to condivide you view; two years ago Sziget Italy had likes about the 4 performers from Italy in the Europe Stage – if it can be in anyway significant. Rihanna could be the big headliner, hope not but if so I hope it wont be the great deal of this announcement: it would be a tremendous downer…

    I do still strongly believe in Disclosure and Tiesto (now that Dimitri Vegas and Like that other stupid guy have been called at Balaton), but I am really on a hold right now

  62. I also bet on Rihanna for pop headliner. Springsteen is impossibile, as he’s ending his european tour in Roma on 16th july. Plus, he’s not a festival guy, ho plays for 3 hours and more, and could never fit a standard festival headline slot

  63. Ok, Sziget has always told everybody that it’s not only about music (and it’s true) but this time the hype seems real. So let’s have some very good sh*t like Radiohead, Rammstein, and a pop headliner to make all the people and the finance happy (Rihanna). A good dj, some other pair of good headliners (not so expensive) like Noel and Disclosure. And then stop focusing on the headliners, I need some good undercard for god’s sake

  64. @bobo Agreed, the undercards is what makes most festivals for me. Would be fun with some hints in here, but it seems like John Doe has gone AWOL this year.

    I do however believe that we will get the -1 headliner in this announcement and as I’m only doing 5 days this year (unless something massive comes up), so if they’re booking RHCP/Rammstein or any other Werchter-names, let’s use day-1 for that 😉

  65. Is anybody else setting themselves up for a major disappointment in the morning?

    A lot of hype built up by Sziget Italia but a lot could be lost in the translation. It may just be a standard announcement, 1 headliner, couple of MS acts and some decent A38 slots.

    Im looking forward to any announcement though as it rams up the excitement of what will be another fantastic 7 days in Budapest in August.

  66. @type777 How about supporting your statements with some facts or sources?

    @joe They’re shooting themselves in the foot if they announce any average band tomorrow for headliner, but a band being big doesn’t mean it will be received positively by everyone. I’d rather take 3 or 4 good undercards rather then one bad headliner, so yes I have a feeling that I will be disappointed, but that’s a part of “the game” 😉

    What I can’t really understand is why they don’t start playing at MS and A38 much earlier than 16.00. Other festivals usually start at 13.00. Would mean the possibility of more bands but also additional revenue for them, as more people will arrive earlier. THAT is the news I want to hear.

  67. @tmolvik – Spot on, i think 3/4 years ago they had 5 acts on main stage, beginning at 3pm if memory serves correctly. It would be excellent news to hear they were changing the schedule times. I understand that being so close to the city means that have to have an early shut down time for main stage but this should apply to early starts.

    Last years undercard was excellent. the A38 was brilliant.

    I have always loved the vibe of the festival and the great craic within the campsites that seeing 1/2 good acts a day was sufficient but now as i am getting older and more people are coming with us, the line up is more important to me than ever as if there are any weak days then we will just stay in the city and party.

    I like all varieties of music bar EDM so i am easily satisfied for the majority although having Mika headline 1 year really did test my limits (I sat in my tent for that show to catch up on some zzzzz)

    Like everyone, i really hope for the big names like Artic Monkeys, Not too pushed on RHCP but it would be attractive for a lot of people. Considering 80,000 + for Robbie last year & an incredible 90,000+ for Avicii (That day was insane with the amount of people in that heat) i can see Rihanna being announced for 1 night. A lot of bands i think will be announced that we have seen previously at Sziget, Two Door Cinema Club (TDCC for the 4 letter hint) They are doing every festival this summer, Imagine Dragons, Ellie Goulding again as she has a new european tour but no budapest date.

    Kendrick Lamar rumoured last year as rap headliner and back across europe this year has to be a big possibility.

  68. @Joe There might be some reasons why they don’t start before 16.00 that I’m not aware of, but as the festival is getting bigger they should reconsider if it’s not because of any legal issues.

    I agree with you and think that a lot of the coming names will include recycled names that already have been announced for many festivals, but I hope they do something different. Sziget is the only festival where I’m not too conserned about an epic line-up, as there is a lot do to anyway, but some good names (especially at A38) would be very much appriciated.

    For some reason I think Green Day is the announcement tomorrow it just doesn’t fit with the Sziget France clues..

  69. I don’t know if it’s only my opinion but I really think that music on the bigger stages (MS, A38,..) starts so late in the afternoon because at Sziget it is so HOT that it’s quite hard to attend to such big events at 2pm -3pm.

    I’ve been to 7 editions now and I also can say that during the day Szitizens prefer so much smaller chillout places, doing alternative activities (art/sport), visit the city or relaxing. In fact at night there’s a LOT more people everywhere, more life. Is like thousands of Szitizens appeared from nowhere. I’ve always seen sziget like a evening/night festival. Even concerts at 4pm at main stage have usually a very small crowd, I don’t see the point in starting earlier.

  70. Have you guys seen that Pukkelpop leaked poster? with this guy saying that he have also further informations leaked? Obviously don’t know if we can trust him 1% but that’s what he said: Green Day, The Killers, Jack U, Noel Gallagher, Twenty One pilots, Eagles of death metal, Nofx, and others

  71. Good point re: the hot weather and the later starting time, makes sense rather than have an artist playing to an empty area when everyone is 100 yards back in the trees.

    Green day would be a great announcement for me, same day as sum 41 and go back to having a punk metal day. OffSpring must be a possibility for tomorrow also.

    As somebody said above PLEASE NO ADELE. I couldn’t think of anything worse.

  72. Pukkelpop already mentioned on twitter that the poster is fake, saying that the poster is a wishlist only.

  73. Man, to be honest John Doe was 95% of the reason why I visited this website. Without him is just a forum for hyped szitizens talking about wrong rumors and music taste…… I am sad actually

  74. i tryed to give hints 2+ hours ago, but szigetnews blocked my comments. i had to change my name and browser. i give those hints just this time and never more. i’ll never comment again. f-ck szigetnews.

  76. 1. Muse
    2. Julia Holter
    3. Years & Years
    4. The Last Shadow Puppets
    5. ?
    6. The Lumineers
    7. Bullet for My Valentine
    8. Parkway Drive
    9. Jess Glynne

  77. Muse would be really, really huge, because everybody thinks that #1 is RHCP, but maybe not. If the hint is real and the 4th is TLSP, I’m already excited about this. 😀

  78. It’s the great thing about sziget, nothing in the above possibilities would get me excited but it would be a brilliant batch of names for a lot.

    Let’s see if @ty_pe777 can be as trusted as our leader John Doe

  79. Mhhhh…the only big name in the list is Muse; the other one is only small card placed in a38 stage or at the least in early main stage slot. I can’t belevie all the national sziget profiles has created this hype and aspectative only for Muse (I mean “ok it’s a big name but they are usual headliner festival”).
    I think there will be a big pop headilners like Rihanna (least years Robbie has financed half part of mainstage budget – the formula work well), another headliner like Red Hot chili peppers and don’t forget edm headliner (i bet one Tiesto or/and Armin Van Buuren).
    If they ll announce green day i will guy ticket today….

  80. Muse have no festival announced, if the hint is real Sziget would be the first to announce them! I really hope so, so we can finally have a HUGE headliner for the Island Of Freedom!. Wait and see, at 10:30 they’ll post the names on Spotify 😀

  81. @Cesar I really think that the size of Muse today worth the hype created. And if the hints are real The Last Shadow Puppets is not a “small card name placed in A38” as they’ll be sub-headlining Primavera Sound, for example. The same for Roisin Murphy, great name to me!

  82. @bender Surely Muse is big name but only them won’t make a sold out (maybe only for the date of Muse but not for all the week).
    Subheadlining Primavera does’t mean nothing of relevant in my opinion (ok it’s once of the best festival in Europe but not for the lineup sure lol) However my prevision:
    – Rihanna
    – RHCP
    – Armin Van Bureen
    – some undercard (maybe offspring?)

    And it’s not so far from my wishlist ???? (Out Rihanna In Green Day)

  83. I really think Primavera Sound is the best European festival for the lineup if you don’t only focus on the headliners. The variety of the lineup and the strength of its undercard is simply brilliant. 🙂
    Anyway we’re in February and looks like we only have 1 headliner if we really get Muse. And it’s a strange thing cose Sziget never announced a huge headliner for first. I want to wait 10:30 before going crazy!

  84. Am I the only one to be not that happy if Muse? i mean, they are cool, uhm, but there are too many big names in the area this year and it would be a shame if they miss at calling the majority of them…

  85. Please post here the line-up when it appears on Spotify, because it’s not available in every country! 😀

  86. @Yelo: I guess this is just an announcement. There will be other announcements too, maybe they already have contracts with other headliners. They have to keep the hype until the end. And if it’s true what others said above, we’ll get another announcement on Sunday, which would be cool.

  87. Maybe it’s just because I’ve seen them 3 times (1 stadium + 2 festivals) but me neither I’m not so excited. Hope sziget didn’t spend a lot of his budget on them, otherwise I would have choosen something less “predictable”. Muse are good performers of course, but there were more crazy and less “boring” choices in my opinion.

    But last year, if you remember, EVERY single person on every sziget Facebook page wanted Muse (and some Linkin Park). So I think they are just giving the people what they want

  88. Sziget: I don’t really think we will have an announcement on Sunday, nobody said it! It was probably just an hint for Bullet for my Valentine.
    Never had announcements on Sunday. They’re chilling, they’re not working my friend

  89. Average Szigetnews user:

    – Wtf Sziget, we want big headliners this time!

    Big headliners coming

    – Would have spent money on something else, for more groups.

    C’mon guys! And Muse predictable?? They have no festival announced! It’s very hard to make people happy… LOL

  90. @Bender: I’ve spoken just for myself and I’ve clearly said “MAYBE IT’S JUST BECAUSE I’VE SEEN THEM 3 TIMES” ahaha, don’t get mad about it, I still love sziget! I’m not hard to make happy, I’m happy right now man. I’m just saying that something like Radiohead, Rammstein, Green Day for example are not always in the european mainstream touring and festival circuit (Muse have no festivals this year ok… but did every mainstream european festival last year, and have at least 3 shows in every arena in every big city in europe this year)

  91. it’s like a countdown, they will keep uploading acts on spotify untill 11 when they announce Muse both on Spotify and Facebook

  92. the Neighbourhood
    the Lumineers
    Jess Glynne
    Datsik
    Years&Years
    Roisin Murphy
    The Last Shadw Puppets
    Opgezwolle
    Parkway Drive
    Bullet for my Valentine
    KIZ
    Kovacs
    David Guetta
    Muse

  93. David Guetta……………………………………………………………………………………………………………

  94. Muse ? David Guetta ? The Last Shadow Puppets ? The Lumineers ? Years & Years ? Róisín Murphy ? Bullet for My Valentine ? Jess Glynne ? Parkway Drive ? K.I.Z. ? The Neighbourhood ? Kovacs ? DATSIK ? Rico & Sticks

    I don’t know why but I’m ok even with Guetta ahah, you know that tragicomic situations? And also it’s a good start, there are some good names, two big names (which they want to make it big maybe, like 2014 or some years ago), seems like sziget has some money this year. Hope will continue good, or better

  95. David Guetta was pathetic when he showed up 3 yrs ago. It is such a bad performance, I’d better watch a nirvana cover band at another stage.
    This is a backstab indeed, especially compared to other festivals that have such great bands coming this summer.

  96. “I am Jack’s crushing sense of disappointment” (Cit).
    Or maybe better, I was waiting for better stuff in many ways; don’t get me wrong, I am far from satisfacted from Muse, TLSP and Parkway Drive, maybe also for Lumineers and the Neighbourhood, but the other ones?
    and most of all WHAT THE FLYING EFFIN EFF DOES DAVID GUETTA MEANS?

  97. Muse are 1000 times better then RHCP live, it’s a great headliner (i’ve seen them 2 times live). Other main stage acts could be The Lumineers and Bullet for my Valentine, filling early slots. Others seems good A38 names

  98. we knew we had to have some edm mainstream. There are just like 7-8 “tomorrowland/ultra headliners” nowadays, and they are the only djs that can play main stage at sziget. So after some years they have to repeat them ahah

  99. Parkway Drive at Sziget, can’t believe it! They’re really good live. I love old TLSP too, let’s wait for the new album now. And Muse, i saw them at Rome Olympic Stadium in 2013. What an amazing night! . They’re terrific live. Best gig of my life. I would rellay love to come back this year.

  100. According to Sziget Official:
    the Neighbourhood – A38
    the Lumineers – Main Stage late afternoon
    Jess Glynne – A38
    Datsik – A38 night
    Years&Years – Main Stage early afternoon
    Roisin Murphy – A38
    The Last Shadw Puppets – no mention
    Opgezwolle – A38 afternoon
    Parkway Drive – no mention
    Bullet for my Valentine – A38
    KIZ – A38 afternoon
    Kovacs – A38 afternoon
    David Guetta – no mention
    Muse – Main Stage

  101. @SkaPanda your choise of the 2nd name was better 😀 Julia Holter is 100% better than David Guetta)))
