Sziget Announces the Lineup of the World Music Stage


Just like in the previous years, the Sziget Festival will feature great music from all over the world.

Irie Mafia - Easy as One Two Three

Irie Maffia turns 10 years old this year, and they can add another great achievement to their CV - their song "Easy As One Two Three" has been selected as the official anthem of the 2015 Sziget Festival!
