Just like in the previous years, the Sziget Festival will feature great music from all over the world. The organizers of the event have just announced the lineup of the World Music Stage, which will be incredibly colorful this year – focusing on roma (gypsy) traditions this year. The World Music Stage is the melting pot of the Roma Tent, the Afro-Latin-Reggae Stage and the Hungaricum Village, with an enormous concentration of performers of the genre.
This year’s lineup offers several Eastern European and Balcanic styles, not excluding others – like fado – but its main focus will still be on Roma music, with at least one such act every day, from every corner of the globe: from India to Romania, from Serbia to Egypt, and not excluding local talent from Hungary either.
The lineup of the World Music Stage will include both classics of the genre, and more actual acts. Here is the list:
- Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar
- Antwerp Gipsyska Orkestra
- The Egyptian Project
- Noura Mint Seymali
- La Chiva Gantiva
- Besh o droM
- Helsinki-Cotonou Ensemble
- Parno Graszt
- Taraf de Haïdouks
- Szalonna és Bandája
- Ladánybene 27
- Imam Baildi
- HK & Les Saltimbanks
- Roy Paci & Aretuska Allstars
- Dhoad – Gypsies from Rajasthan
The turntables will be manned by performers like GypsySoundSystem, DJ Borzin, DJ Luca Vaga, DJ Lord Sassafras and DJ Tagada at the break of dawn.
