  1. I'd dismissed them on first hearing as be too lightweight for my tastes, then caught a couple of their live videos and they added an extra element. Looking forward to them now.
  2. So.........wonder what's going on with Joost?
  3. Just noticed they're playing the main stage at Reading/Leeds Festivals, same stage and day as Raye, Fontaines DC, Lana and Fred. Strange.
  4. Agreed. Very impressed. Just hope they don't clash with Editors!
  5. Thr Electric Picnic line-up. For those of you unaware of who Gerry Cinnamon is....lucky you.
  6. I can only use the UK as a barometer, but Kylie is playing British Summer Time Hyde Park this summer to 65,000 people. The first two tiers of tickets have sold out and tier 3 is selling at £105 a ticket (125 euros). When she played the legends slot at Glastonbury in 2019 it was the most watched Glastonbury TV slot ever, with almost 4 million viewers (beating Adele and Ed Sheeran's previous record for viewers). I appreciate she's not for everyone, but no headliner is. She is massive with LGBTQ+ audiences (and old fogeys like me). Her light is definitely not fading - and I may have been wrong about Fiddy too, looking at the venues he played in UK last time he toured the UK (20,000 seat arenas) but maybe he's just fallen off my radar since his second album.
  7. 50 Cent is still classed as a big name? Really? Thought his light had started to fade a long time ago.
  8. Great news about Fisher subbing Kylie. Big fan.
  9. Can anyone work out who is on the main stage on Wednesday? It only seems to be Kylie and Tom Odell so far. Am I missing someone, or do you think they're waiting to see how well Joost do at Eurovision before deciding where to put them?
  10. I guess we now know why @Sziget2024_Leakshas been so quiet lately! Lol
  11. There'll be a riot if that section is VIP only.
  12. Unpopular opinion. I'm old and I love Kylie, she's a national treasure. Can't wait to see her at Sziget. But, I would still have preferred The Killers, No Doubt, RHCP, Maneskin, even Catfish and the Bottlemen. Because live music is all about music being played live, by musicians who laboured for months to write the perfect song and are now getting the chance to share it with thousands of people, who are in awe of the skill and ability on display that they don't possess themselves. There are JUST enough acts announced across all stages to ensure I'll have a pretty decent Sziget. But it is absolutely the last time I buy tickets without seeing the line-up first.
  13. I'm assuming a couple of names announced today with the main announcement being that the headliner will come tomorrow, alongside Electric Picnic and the other festival both announcing. Seems a strange way to do it though, couldn't imagine a football team holding a press conference to announce they're announcing the the purchase of a new player the following day!
  14. Not that I know much about K-Pop but I'm sure most of them are currently doing national service, aren't they?
  15. So, if it's a band playing all three, the options are what? Someone with nothing currrently announced? Killers are out as played last year. Looking at demographics, I'd say Metallica etc out too. So: No Doubt RHCP Maroon 5 Muse The 1975 I can't think of anyone else that could be in tbh. What other huge groups are there who have nothing else announced? The Wiggles?
  16. Am I missing it or have they still not officially announced God Is An Astronaut? If not, do we assume they are one of the remaining A38 acts being announced tomorrow? Does anyone know what time the press conference takes place tomorrow?
  17. Thanks for the recommendation. My son's a massive Royal Blood fan so will almost certainly like DPS.
  18. Good point. Lets change the subject. Who do you think England will beat in the final of the Euros in July?
  19. It's very quiet in here. What is everyone thinking for the headliner announcement (assuming it is coming on Thursday?) Not seeing any rumours of a No Doubt tour anywhere. Are we actually going to get a band like Leaks 'promised'? Or is Kylie more likely? Or maybe we'll be seein' Kings of Leon? Or could Paramore be tempted away from Tay for a day? Place your bets......
  20. Quite possible they got way down the line with a band and they changed their mind at the last minute. Sounds like they've has a few incidents like that this year.
  21. Also says: Keep an eye out this week, we're sure you won't want to miss the real groove of what's coming! 🔮 #szigetfestival #SZIGET2024 Does that provide any clues? Real groove stands out as strange turn of phrase. It's also the title of a Kylie song.
  22. Booking Rammstein to play Sziget with the current line-up would be like booking Ed Sheeran to play Hellfest.
  23. Apparently, at Coachella last night, Damon Alburn announced on stage that it was Blur's last ever gig together. Sounds like they're safely counted out of Thursday's announcement!
  24. My son and I had this exact discussion last night. In a year where our 'must see' acts are about half the number they normally are, having a clash (and that one specifically) would be very annoying.
