Yesterday, as a surprise for everyone, Sziget has announced that EDM duo The Chainsmokers will take the Dan Panaitescu Main Stage on the 13th of August. Apparently, this is the only new name we can expect to be revealed this week. The Chainsmokers are at their first visit to Sziget Festival. The rising star of EDM, as they are often credited, has broken through in 2014, when they released their first hit song "#Selfie". Over time, they kept releasing singles and climbing among the preferences of EDM fans. This year, they finally decided to release a studio album and go on
Here's an interesting piece of news. Budapest Business Journal, quoting Hungarian tabloid Blikk, says that, with the Budapest Mayor wanting to demand rent from Sziget Festival, a few cities and venues in Hungary have offered to host Sziget, if it proves necessary. The owners of Csillebérc youth center, located in the green hills of Buda, are offering to host the festival (this is a 45-hectare park). Also, Mogyoród(near Budapest), as well as Gyula, a city in south Hungary, would love to welcome Sziget.
