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.

Announcement: Kendrick Lamar, Mumford & Sons, Others @ Sziget 2018

Kendrick Lamar announcement

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

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
