Kasabian @ Sziget 2017

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

Sziget Bookings Manager Dan Panaitescu Awarded Post-Mortem at Europe Festival Awards

Dan Panaitescu was for a long time one of the most important people in building the lineup for Sziget Festival, but not only that: he served as the International Booking Manager for Sziget, Volt, Balaton Sound, and Strand Festival. He is credited with having a very important role in the transformation of the Sziget Festival from a small, regional event into one that is widely considered one of Europe's best summer festivals. Dan Panaitescu was one of the key professionals Sziget has to thank for receiving the "Best Lineup Award" at the European Festival Awards last year. Unfortunately, Dan passed away

The first artists and bands to participate at some have seen the light of day today. Update: Hungary Today hints on Bastille coming to Sziget 2017. I personally think it's a mistake that sneaked into the article (it looks like a confusion by the author who wrote Sziget instead of Strand), but
