HUNGARY: Sziget Festival has announced the first wave of acts of its 24th edition, set to take place on the Island of Freedom in Budapest from August 10 – 17 2016.
The first eight names are: Bring Me The Horizon, John Newman, Kodaline, M83, MO, Naughty Boy, Parov Stelar, Sigúr Ros.
Early bird tickets are available till 31st December.
The success of last year’s Best European Major Festival seems to continue, as more than 25% of the 2016 Sziget passes have been sold during the first 24 hours of the ticket sales campaign. In 2015 a total of 441.000 Szitizens attended the event, representing more than 95 countries and this probably makes Sziget one of the most multicultural festivals in the world. The series of announcements for the festival has also started. Hundreds of acts and programs will be announced in the forthcoming months, now starting with eight names, representing different genres and keeping the music line-up as colourful as always.
