Southern Californian band Linkin Park is scheduled to open the 25th VOLT Festival in Sopron, Hungary, in 2017. The band is set to open the first day of the five-day festival on June 27, 2017, according to a press release issued today.

With over 50 million albums sold worldwide, Linkin Park’s devoted fan base has made them one of the most popular bands in the world, organizers say. They have sold out stadiums and headlined some of the biggest music festivals, and will now be performing at VOLT for the very first time, the press statement adds. 

Ticket sales will begin on November 17 at 4 pm, with day tickets to be available for EUR 40 in the first 48 hours. This year two types of pass will be available for VOLT, the 4-day and 5-day passes, sold at a major discount price if purchased in the first 48 hours, the organizers add.

Rising to fame in 2000 with their debut album Hybrid Theory, which sold over 19 million copies worldwide, Linkin Park are now touring with their latest album, The Hunting Party, which reached #1 in the iTunes store in 67 different countries. Linkin Park are currently in the studio working on their seventh studio album for Warner Bros. Records, the organizers note.
