After a lot of speculation, as well as a few artists confirming their presence, Sziget has finally revealed a new batch of artists to perform at its stages. Some of them are returning names - think Kasabian, Interpol, Leningrad, and others. Without further ado, here is the list of the names that were freshly revealed through Sziget's official Facebook page: Kasabian Flume Interpol Billy Talent Jamie Cullum Charli XCX The Kills Clean Bandit Metronomy The Pretty Reckless Danny Brown Crystal Fighters Fritz Kalkbrenner Leningrad Cashmere Cat Jagwar Ma Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano Maurice West Kasabian needs no introduction: the band played
Interpol has announced a series of live appearances for this August and September, and thus confirmed their participation at the 2017 Sziget Festival. The band will spend most of August and part of September playing on European stages. They start their tour in Prague on the 9th, participating at events like Summer Well in Romania, AMA in Italy, DCode in Spain, and Sziget in Hungary. Update: another self-confirmed artist: Leningrad will also play at Sziget 2017, also on the 15th, at 8PM. The band currently consisting of Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler, and Sam Fogarino is working on new material to be released next year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqfiHfDmOnw&list=PLNNcYWcCAt9x15wtKffwqTD_4ulfkbQHU Interpol
