The Lineups of Szigets Past (2009 to 2016)

Sziget lineups Poster - www.szigetnews.com

We've decided to take a walk down memory lane and look at the lineups of the festival since 2009 (this is as far as our records go back). There are two things that influence the lineup of a music festival that make their presence felt in the case of Sziget, too - even if it considers itself (and it is considered by many) more than just that: the current taste of the prospective visitors and the availability of performers

All through the summer, Romania is home to several festivals, yet
