Budapestʼs Sziget Festival presents final lineup


Sziget announced its final additions to the lineup for this yearʼs festival, including the British multi-instrumentalist and electronic artist Bonobo, EDM producer and DJ Flux Pavilion, and Dutch duo Yellow Claw.

Other artists performing at Sziget will be Kendrick Lamar, Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, Lana Del Rey, Mumford & Sons and Dua Lipa among over 100 others.

Dubbed the continentʼs equivalent to the U.K.ʼs Glastonbury, the "Line-Up of the Year 2017" winner is back from August 8-15 with what Sziget promises will be an unforgettable festival for any music lover.

Taking place on Budapestʼs Óbudai Island ("sziget" in Hungarian), Sziget is one of the worldʼs largest music and arts festivals, transforming into the "Island of Freedom" every August, welcoming more than 450,000 "Szitizens" from around the world and all walks of life.

This year, Elrow – known for its amazing, crazy, and colorful shows – will be hosting an epic End Party in the Bacardi Arena. For Sziget, the groupʼs unique show concept will be "Sambowdromo do Brasil", showcasing interactive performances, stilt walkers, acrobats, and confetti blizzards.

Day tickets start at EUR 75 with three- and seven-day tickets also available.; five-day passes are already sold out. For more information and tickets, visit
