VOLT Festival, as you probably all know, is the “little sister” of Sziget Festival – it only lasts for four days (VOLT 2020 takes place from July 1st to the 4th) instead of a week, has fewer stages, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either. It takes place each year in Sopron, a city in the Western corner of Hungary, very close to the country’s Austrian border. A look at the map shows that it is at the meeting point of countries like Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary, making it especially easy to access from all these countries.
The festival is going to kick off its early bird ticket sale on December 5th, at noon (CET). The prices for the passes will be as follows:
- day ticket: €50 (instead of €62)
- three-day pass: €100 (instead of €133)
- four-day pass: €113 (instead of €145)
As for the performers, here are the names freshly announced by the people behind VOLT 2020:
- Lenny Kravitz
- The Pretty Reckless
- Faithless (DJ set)
- High Contrast (live)
- LTJ Bukem & Roni Size
- Dirtyphonics (DJ set)
American singer Lenny Kravitz wears many hats – he sings, writes, produces, acts, plays various instruments, and has embraced genres ranging from rock to pop and folk ballads. He is currently on tour promoting his 11th studio album called “Raise Vibration”.
Marshmello is not unknown for VOLT’s attendees – he was among the performers to take the stage two years ago. Christopher Comstock hides his face under a bucket with a creepy smile that makes him a pretty recognizable presence behind the turntables. He, too, has a new album to promote – Joytime III was released this year.
Passenger – Michael David Rosenberg – inherited his band’s name after it disbanded a decade ago. Since then, he topped the charts several times – his best-known is probably “Let Her Go”, which was nominated for a BRIT Award (best single). His new album “Sometimes It’s Something, Sometimes It’s Nothing at All” was released this May.
What do you think of the lineup so far?
