And now… the moment we’ve all been waiting for… the second announcement for Sziget 2019 where the people behind the event shed some light on who will join Ed Sheeran on the stage of next year’s edition:
- Foo Fighters
- Florence + The Machine
- Twenty One Pilots
- The 1975
- Martin Garrix
- Richard Ashcroft
- Catfish & The Bottlemen
- The Blaze
- Maribou State
- Pale Waves
- Boy Pablo
- Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls
- Of Mice & Men
- Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes
- Gang of Youths
After the dissolution of Nirvana, drummer Dave Grohl founded Foo Fighters as a one-man project in 1994. In the almost two and a half decades ever since, the band released nine studio albums, gathered a dozen Grammy awards, performed on the main stage of festivals like Reading, Glastonbury… and now Sziget.
Florence + The Machine
Florence + The Machine needs no introduction to seasoned Szitizens, as they performed at the 2015 edition of the festival, too. The English indie rock band has been around for more than a decade, releasing four studio albums (including one this year) and winning a bunch of awards, including two BRITs, a UK Festival Award for being the “Best Breakthrough Act” in 2009, and several others.
Twenty One Pilots
Twenty One Pilots has been around for almost a decade – the US-based alternative hip-hop/electropop/rock duo has formed in 2009. Their discography consists of five studio albums, they won a Grammy in 2017, two MTV VMAs for the “Best Rock Video”, and even a “Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice” Award for being the “Favorite New Artist”.
A Manchester pop rock band that’s been around for quite some time that has been a success story: their 2013 self-titled debut album topped the UK Albums Chart, and so did their second, along with the Billboard 200 and winning them the title of the “Best British Group” at the BRIT Awards.
Another performer that needs no introduction – let the Sziget 2015 end show speak for itself:
If the name Richard Ashcroft sounds familiar, the reason is that he was the lead singer of the alternative rock band “Verve” that made waves with “Bittersweet Symphony” in the 1990s. He went solo in 2000, then re-joined the Verve, then split again, then formed the RPA & The United Nations of Sound, then released another solo album in 2018… and next year, he’ll be at Sziget Festival.
Catfish and the Bottlemen
Coming all the way from Wales, Catfish and the Bottlemen is a rock band with a decade-long career, two studio albums, a handful of singles, and a BRIT for being the “British Breakthrough Act” of the year in 2016.
CHVRCHES is another act that needs no introduction – they played the A38 in 2016. They releases a new album this year so they’ll have some fresh tunes to show at Sziget 2019.
Jungle has been around for half a decade, playing neo soul everywhere from London clubs to the stage of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. Their latest studio album was released this September.
The Dublin-based rock band Kodaline has been around for more than a decade, releasing three albums, winning some awards, and lending their music to on-screen productions like “The Vampire Diaries”, “Reign”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, and many others.
