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.

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
