Martin Garrix @ Sziget 2015

19 year old Dutch DJ Martin Garrix was the closing act of this year's Sziget Festival. He was so much caught up in the Sziget feeling that after concluding with the End Show, he refused to accept that it was over. He concluded his show at Sziget with a 90 minute "backstage" show for his friends and the workers still there, while it was pouring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJRWr7-pfiQ For those who were unable to attend the festival on Sunday, or want to relive the closing moments of this year's Sziget Festival, here is the complete Martin Garrix end show.

Announcement: Kings of Leon @ Sziget 2015 (Main Stage)

Kings of Leon

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

Although the budget of the Sziget Festival has grown to 4.4 billion HUF (over $16 million or 14 million euros) the current list of headliners to participate at this year's edition might not be as great as expected, the festival's organizers announced in a press conference today. Last year the festival's date was pushed back to avoid overlapping with major US and Japanese festivals. This year the above mentioned events will start later as well. This means that the organizers of Sziget might again be in trouble. Still, according to lead organizer Gerendai Károly, the interest in the festival is unbroken after
