  1. I love how Volt already has main stage timetables and Sziget doesn't have a single name announced 😶
  2. Honestly don't think Sziget will announce something this week or even next one, as now promoters need to boost Volt sales with new names. Seems that info about February announcement was legit.
  3. May be wrong, but Strand promoters are different. But yes, due to same time period it also doesn't share foreign acts with Sziget.
  4. Never. Sziget, Volt and Balaton Sound are owned by same promoter, they don't share any non-Hungarian acts.
  5. Volt just announced The Offspring, BMTH and My Chemical Romance. Either Sziget get something really huge or disappointing.
  6. They play festival shows in Spain and Bulgaria so exclusivity shouldn't cause additional costs. I also noticed that tickets for their February show are available but it also can be a reason why Sziget is holding on with announcement. The main problem is such headliner could be too heavy for Sziget, but then I remember the interview where promoters told they wanted Iron Maiden to play Sziget 2018. So it isn't completely impossible.
  7. Slipknot play Budapest on February 4th. Still thinking that with their gap between August 1st and 7th they could be a possibility, especially concerning "lack of headliners".
  8. For me: 2016: 6 on 7, left Manu Chao, wish I left Hardwell as well. 2018: 5 on 5, left two days early due to work, watched Shawn Mendes online next evening 😀 2019: 5 on 9, left Ed Sheeran, The 1975, Florence and Twenty One Pilots.
  9. Several insiders at this forum told that The Strokes play anywhere if they got paid certain amount of money. If Sziget really struggles to get headliners they could give a helping hand.
  10. So as we don't know who will play Sziget let's see who certainly won't 😀 Ellie Goulding, Sum 41 and Wilkinson were announced for Strand Festival, which rules them out.
  11. Another year, another rumor about Eminem at Sziget 😋
  12. Thank you for sharing! For now headliners are looking good for me. Wondering who could be the "big name". The Weeknd? Kings of Leon? Someone with no dates yet / exclusive?
  13. Sziget had both The Chainsmokers and Major Lazer as headliners in 2017 and that year was a disaster. Even festival management said that weak lineup was the main reason of relatively small attendance, they won’t to that again. Maybe they’ll book one of them but not both.
  14. Gwen Stefani is around mid-July.
  15. There is a batch of names for FM4 Frequency Festival (Austria, 20-22.08) tomorrow morning, maybe we'll find out about more touring headliners.
  16. Just FYI, same year SOAD headlined second stage at Pinkpop with only an hour-long set. Kings of Leon headlined main with 90mins ?
  17. There was some Hungarian DJ guy who shared the list of artists who are possibilities for Sziget and Volt. IMO it was made based just on tour dates of these artists. Billie Eilish and Iron Maiden posted all of their tour dates simultaneously so they are out for sure. Posty and Foos were the most expensive acts at this year's Sziget, don't think Volt can afford both of them.
  18. So if you want to stay in a camping now you need to buy a camping ticket, right?
  19. Disappointed but not surprised. Not the worst-case scenario considering they need to compete in booking with Southside/Hurricane, Graspop and Pinkpop.
  20. Why do you think Post Malone is cheap and need to be promoted? With his new album I'm pretty sure he won't take anything lower than headline slot anymore. He was third most expensive act at this year's Sziget with only Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran before him.
  21. There is no poster, but this is the list of bands:
  22. It's because hint says "his live show is amazing".
  23. Bon Iver in Finland and Sweden between 13-16 August. Personally can't see them at Sziget, but still now there's one more band in August mix.
  24. Considering that they played Volt Festival this year and that Sziget management wanted to book Maiden two years before, it's definetely a possibility.
