The organizers of Sziget Festival have announced the first confirmed acts. The 2015 event will take place between 10-17 August in Budapest, providing a 7 days festival-holiday experience at the heart of a great city. And Sziget promises to be as colorful, exciting and spectacular as ever.
Sziget hosts more than 50 venues, so the list of programs is almost eternal and takes a long time to get its final shape. The organizing crew already confirmed that Florence and the Machine will play on Day 0, 11 August, so those who want to enjoy the show of the well-known indie rock band of Florence Welch should make sure they buy 7 Days Passes.
Sziget is also proud to announce Alt-J as part of the line-up. With their debut album, 'An Awesome Wave', released in 2012, they reached a huge success, followed by this year's 'This is All Yours'. Their gig will definitely be a must-see for Szitizens.
EDM fans can enjoy the music of Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf, better known as producer/deejay duo Blasterjaxx. Many successes and milestones followed their career so far which resulted in the fact that they are now seen as one of the most promising EDM artists in the world.
British singer-songwriter Jamie Woon will also hit the Sziget stage. His characteristic voice is combined with an exciting merge of cold electronic tunes and soul.
Budapest will be happy to welcome Fauve, an interesting French combination of music and videography. The second part of their debut album, Vieux Fréres - Partie 1, is expected by the end of the year or early 2015.
It has been some time that we haven't heard about José Gonzalez, but he is now confirmed for Sziget and will also release his first solo album in seven years. 'Vestiges & Claws' will come out in mid-February and, as José sees it, the record is his personal, "zoomed-out eye on humanity on a small, pale blue dot in a cold, sparse and unfriendly space."
The Subways will definitely bring the party mood to Szitizens. They are currently working on their fourth album, so next to Rock&Roll Queen, the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy some fresh indie hits.
Babylon Circus, the French 10 member ska-reggae group, will also make the Sziget audience dance and jump around already on Day 0, 11 August. Full of life and joy, this energetic French group will definitely be a colorful part of the 2015 Sziget experience.
New colonists of the pop empire, Kadebostany have swiftly catapulted themselves into the spotlight with their irresistible blend of pop music devouring unlikely influences to create a singular yet terribly catchy universe of its own. Come to Sziget and check it for yourself.
Led by Aaron Bruno, Awolnation crafted one of the most influential songs in years with the chart-topping track "Sail." The song has also achieved global success and they are coming to Sziget with their album 'Megalithic Symphony'.
