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 tour to support it: the Memories…Do Not Open Tour includes 40 North American locations and, apparently, Sziget Festival.
The duo has signed a three-year residency deal with Wynn Nightlife, further elevating the already glittery Las Vegas DJ scene.
For today, in turn, the team booking acts for Sziget has promised to release the detailed program schedule for the event. Indeed, the Sziget website now has the artists listed broken down by days (something we already knew, with the exception of a handful of circus & theater acts – these have finally gotten their place. Unfortunately, there is still no word on the starting time for each artist and act – this will probably be added later on.
