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

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

Sziget's Europe Stage offers its visitors a good look at the emerging talent from the local music scene of various countries.
