    Sziget Festival 2018

    We did it on day one last year, it wasn't mind blowing, but perhaps the later days were more populated. It was, however, relaxing and chilled to drive up and down in the sun having a few bevs. Food wasn't amazing if I recall. Whole thing felt a bit sparse. I wasn't wowed but also I wasn't upset I did it.

    Probably some fool! also only a tiny tidbit, but as per ticketing email, Rita Ora opens the main stage on Sunday at 12.00 - so the order they're in may mean nothing at all.

    Yeah tbh you won't even think about it. Few minutes walk, buy a few cans while you're going to the shower, sorted for a few hours. So cheap compared to UK festival prices. Constantly buying more than one.

    I kind of feel like the Ed/Sam situation, the Saturday people just got 'lucky' if you want to call it that, that Ed can't play last and it'd be bizarre having someone small on last. Pretty convinced we have Sunday headliner in Taylor, though I would be well up for a big Sunday opener!

    Where are you seeing that and what does it actually say? Cheers!

    Thank you! I emailed Sziget and it was hard to understand but I think they said the same haha.

    This announcement does precisely nothing for me, but Lana announced as headliner does confirm that I will be doing Sziget from Saturday to Tuesday. on that note, has anyone ever bought a five day ticket but not gone on the first day? And does that cause any problems? My thinking being it costs roughly the same or less than to buy four day tickets or a three day plus a one day, and then if anyone amazing is announced in the A38 I have the option of changing my mind. But they won't be funny if I turn up on the Saturday to pick up a five day ticket which technically began on the Friday?

    (So he's saying so much money would go on Ed, that they wouldn't have as much to spend on other quality artists across the day and stages)

    Undercard just means the acts who don't headline but who make up the rest of the festival roster

    I think Sam Smith is legitimately the headliner (or at least last on) owing to Ed having a gig elsewhere that night.. so I think the poster ordering is accurate there.

    Someone clever talk to me.. does that make Paramore more or less likely for the empty headliner slot? i'd very much welcome Alessia Cara and Friendly Fires too!

    Interesting that there’s not much discussion of Ed Sheeran

    Not entirely true.. her new album limped in at No.6, Ed's is fighting for top spot (and has been regardless of Glastonbury in recent weeks) many months down the line. He's massively more popular than her, or Biffy (both of whom I agree could headline most festivals, just not above Sheeran). Anyway, I was in the pit with friends who are also fans and I thought he smashed it. Couple of setlist blunders, but in terms of what he gave to it, can't fault it. I do get though that it is easy to make anything seem amazing if you're down at the front getting involved. Case in point, I've seen Major Lazer from the side and thought they were dull as dishwater, saw them this time many vodkas down and right down the front, it was a massive party!

    What are they playing at on the schedules? Rita and Clean Bandit have swapped, Anne-Marie and the Courteeners have swapped. For people whp have planned based on the schedule given this is quite poor. Worse is that one of the tbc slots they made us believe was a subheadliner, nope, they've slotted in Glass Animals and moved Two Door up. They've shot themselves in the foot really as Two Door are a sub sized band and should have been there from the start but they made us believe something bigger was coming. It's cheeky of them.
