Alt-J @ Sziget 2017

Less than 24 hours before Sziget 2017's official announcement, one of the performers to participate was revealed: Alt-J will take the stage on the 15th of August 2017.

For years, Félsziget (Peninsula), Sziget's sister festival, was its biggest event. After its decline, a handful of smaller but growing events took its place - the best example would be Untold, its biggest EDM festival, that attracted over 200,000 attendees on its opening event in 2015, and won the "Best Major Festival" award in the same year. All through the summer, Romania is home to several festivals, yet

Sziget 2017 announcement

And now, the moment we've all been waiting for: Sziget finally announced the first artists and bands to perform at the 25th edition of the festival, Sziget 2017. The announcement was anticipated by so many that when it finally got published, the sheer number of visitors apparently took down the Sziget websites: Hopefully, this is not a bad omen for the upcoming event.
