The organizers have confirmed on the event's official Facebook page: Pink will headline Day -1 of the 25th Anniversary Sziget Festival. At the same time, the event has announced the prices for its day tickets - all of them will cost €65, no matter the date. The next price hike for 7-day and 5-day passes will occur on the 31st of May, so we can expect some further big names to be announced around that date. Pink (often stylized as P!NK) was born Alecia Beth Moore in September 1979. She started writing songs at an early age, then proceeded to perform in

Announcement: Wiz Khalifa, The Vaccines, Paul Van Dyk @ Sziget 2017

The Vaccines Sziget 2017

Sziget 2017 announced fresh names to join its 25th anniversary lineup. The list is surprisingly short, with only nine new names being added to the list today.  They are: Wiz Khalifa Rita Ora The Vaccines Alex Clare The Courteeners Paul Van Dyk Bassjackers Dimension Her Wiz Khalifa needs no introduction. He debuted with his first album in 2006, and gained traction in 2008, when his single "Say Yeah" made it to several charts. To date, he has released seven studio albums, with an eighth being on its way. In 2012, he won a Billboard Music Award (Best New Artist), and took

The Lineups of Szigets Past (2009 to 2016)

There has been a lot of chatter about how Sziget's lineups keep getting worse (or more "mainstream") in the last few years. We've decided to take a walk down memory lane and look at the lineups of the festival since 2009 (this is as far as our records go back). There are two things that influence the lineup of a music festival that make their presence felt in the case of Sziget, too - even if it considers itself (and it is considered by many) more than just that: the current taste of the prospective visitors and the availability of performers

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. As usual, there was a lot of speculation - mostly based on the lineups announced by other festivals, and the tour dates announced by the artists or the bands - about who will be the names supposed to draw

Another day, another headliner at Sziget 2016. Today fans will have the occasion to see David Guetta mix (or, as "haters" see it, poke around his laptop) on the Main Stage of the Island of Freedom. His performance will be accessible for those at home, too, as three of his songs will be streamed live later in the day. But let's take a look at the rest of the Day 3 Live Streams. First, as usual, you'll have the chance to see what you missed yesterday through this "rebroadcast" stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OI3b-WKiDVg Day 3 Live Streams: The day will start with some local talent -

Day 1 Live Streams: Kovacs, Editors, Flag Party

Another day, another chilling morning at the 2016 edition of the Sziget Festival. Yesterday, Rihanna angered some of her fans by delaying the start of her performance by half an hour, according to the press. It was her decision, Index writes, that she took knowing that her concert has to end at 11PM. For those of you curious about this, Index heard that Sziget paid $1 million for the performance of the diva. But this was yesterday - a new day has started. Let's take a look at the day 1 live streams below. Update: If you're like me, your day only ends

Legends, big returners, and fresh performances - this is the tagline of today's Sziget announcement. And the names confirm the title: Die Antwoord, Skunk Anansie, Afrojack, DVBBS, Zedd, Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg, Carnage, and Troyboi were announced to play at Sziget 2016. Die Antwoord on Day -1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyJfKwcIDUg Three of the freshly announced bands will play on Day -1: Die Antwoord, Skunk Anansie, and Marky Ramone's Blitzkrieg. I think Die Antwoord needs no introduction - especially after their role in one of last year's most popular science fiction movies, Chappie, even those unfamiliar with their music got to know them. The South African band is
