Sziget 2018: New Information at Yesterday’s Press Release

Sziget 2018 Prices Love Revolution

"We have managed to put together the strongest musical program this year", Kádár Tamás, Sziget Festival's lead organizer said at the beginning of yesterday's press conference. "It's enough if you look at the headliners of the Main Stage with present-day stars like Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Lana Del Rey, Mumford and Sons, Dua Lipa, Kygo or Arctic Monkeys". Kádár took over for Gerendai Károly as the lead organizer last year, after the latter announced his retirement of sorts from the position after 25 years. Kádár also revealed that after cross-checking with the festival's new investors - the event now has a three-year growth strategy.

Sziget Festival has a new management - and it clearly has a brand new way of revealing the artists, DJs, and other performers taking one of its stages in August. The event's last announcement, made on January 29, was great news for most of the attendees - and hopefully, the names below will also not be a disappointment. So, without further ado, here they are: Dua Lipa Gorillaz Shawn Mendes Stormzy The War on Drugs Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker Lianne La Havas Desiigner King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard Gorgon City live JP Cooper Petit Biscuit Borgore Zhu KSHMR

Arctic Monkeys is the name you've all been waiting for - and as it turns out, you were right. The Sheffield rock band with six BRIT Awards and three Grammy nominations under their belt will join the lineup of Sziget 2018 as a headliner, playing the Main Stage on the 14th of August this year, between 21:30 and 23:30 - a two-hour show. And they might also have quite a few new things to show off, as they have started recording their latest studio album in September 2017, for a 2018 release. Although they promised an announcement to be made at 12

Unlike in the previous years, when December saw the first announcement (or two) regarding the lineup of the event in the coming year, this year Sziget took its time. It has prepared to announce part of its lineup in December but delayed it at the time, citing its need for "a bit more time" to put together a relevant announcement for its fans. And the day has finally come: Sziget has announced the first artists, bands, and DJs to take its stages this August. Without further ado, here they are: Above & Beyond Alle Farben Bastille Blossoms Cigarettes After Sex

European Festival Awards 2017

Last night, Europe's festival scene - along with its many fans around the world - sat on the edge of their seats to see whether they will receive any of the accolades awarded at the European Festival Awards.

This year, the organizers handed out 15 awards, some of them based on the vote of a committee, others relying entirely on votes from the public. "Take A Stand Award" was given out for the first time this year, based on a Yourope initiative meant to encourage social cohesion. Best

A new year has come - unfortunately, with no new participants to Sziget Festival announced by the organizers. But life doesn't stop because of this delay. Neighboring Romania has its own - growing - festival scene with events being announced and performers being booked across the year. And some of them happen right in time to also make it to Sziget's lineup this year. We've already covered the lineup Electric Castle has announced so far in this article so we won't do it again, especially since the festival hasn't announced any new names yet. But there are three other events (aside from
