  1. Harry Styles is something like Shawn Mendes, right ? (sorry, I don't know much about these kind of acts 😅 I prefer female Pop acts ! ^^) I just "insta" and "spotify" them both : it seems Shawn Mendes still have more success.. ! congrats to him ! lool

    Anyway : as pop acts, I would easily take Bruno Mars, The Weeknd or Timberlake over those 2 guys ...

    When do we think the next announcement is likely to be? Before the end of Feb? Got a couple of friends who are interested but need to know more before booking anything.

    I believe end of February is the perfect time for a new wave of names (even maybe a bigger one this time) ;

    in most of EU coutries, end of February - beginning of March is time for students holidays, and that's also a time when people make plans for Summer. So it's a good moment for festivals to give as much informations as possible. (in 2019 we had a big release of names end of January, before the holidays, and in 2020 it was mid-February, still before the holidays...)

    If No Doubt would reunite once again and announce some European dates, would they be big enough to headline Sziget? This year their self-titled album would have its 30th anniversary.

    I think they would, yep.

    But there's no signs or rumours about it, so... keep looking for the 3-4 missing headliners ^^

    That was a good day 🙂my last proper festival day..

    same for me.. and if 2022 goes well, only 5 months to wait until my next one, HellFest ... and 7 months until Sziget 🤩

    I expect some more names maybe mid-February, we're not that far I suppose ! @Sziget2022_Leaks might not be aware of the website being back.. we would gladely need you man, for some clues or stuff !

    Merry Christmas, folks! Hopefully Sziget will bring us some surprizes next year and that corona won't cancel another edition.

    I was wondering these days about the chances of having a Sziget headliner an act that was on a hiatus for some years. Take for example Duffy. She's been on a hiatus for 10 years, but she released a song this year on her instagram account. Would she big enough to be one of the Sziget headliners?

    Which other acts could potentially announce a comeback next year?

    I'm sorry to say that I don't believe it one second .. 😕 she's a " 2 singles hits" artist, and even if her work was good, it wasn't very popular... Even a Georges Ezra would have more chance to sub-headline.

    For the (at least) 3 missing headliners, I still believe in Calvin Harris (or/AND an equal/superior EDM act), 1 Rap and 1 Pop act.

    And for the 3 remainings sub-headliners, my Biffy Clyro hope is still alive, since they are in Germany the 16 August 😇

    But wouldn't Megan Thee Stallion be a more inspired booking than Arctic Monkeys who just played there in 2018 and Kings Of Leon who basically play every festival season and still rely on two hits they've had in 2009? 

    It has nothing to do with "inspiration", a garbage remains a garbage, and Megan thee Stallion belongs in one. I'd rather give the sub-headline spot to Doja Cat, way more attractive to the ears than MTS...I can't even call what she does "Music", sorry.

    (Plus, I'm not a HUGE fan, but KoL are way more than just the 2 "radio hits" everyone knows lol, it is not THAT bad at all when you take the time to listen a bit more.... and before you say it, YES, 'I've listen a lot of MTS... )

    So you're angry about different genres of music being on the festival? 

    I'd rather have a Tyler The Creator, who made one of the best albums of the year, than Kings Of Leon, for instance. Good music is good music, whatever genre it is. 

    not different genres, just Rap.

    It's taking more and more place on the line up year after year, and these acts are faaaaar from being an Eminem, Dr Dre or Missy Elliott level...

    Reading and Leeds announced their lineup like 2 weeks ago.

    What do yall think, what artists could we get? We are already sharing Arctic Monkeys, Bastille, Little Simz and Fontaines D.C.

    What we can't get is RATM and RTJ as they are touring in the US during Sziget and BMTH are announced for VOLT feestival.

    I'm hoping for Glass Animals and I think we could get Megan Thee Stallion (she's in Europe from early June until late August), Wolf Alice, Fever 333, Maneskin (they are all over the Europe) and I would love to see Halsey. 


    I actually would HATE having Megan Thee Stalion.

    Sziget has never been a rap festival, before 2014 you couldn't see any single rap act. But in 2014, they tried Outkast.. ok for one act, a very popular (and good) one actually. But then, a little bit more year after year.. and now in 2022, look at the first names : slowthai, princess nokia, yunglean, rilès, etc.... more and more rap names, not even big ones..

    Sorry for those who like rap, but it wasn't Sziget music type before 2014 and I'm kinda disapointed to see what this fest' is becoming, by "popular" demand I guess...

    oooooh sh.t we indeed lost a lot of posts ! is everyone ok ??? 😅

    Which will come first, the full Primavera 2023 lineup or the first names for Sziget? Place your bets people 

    well to be honest, if it takes that much time, I'd rather have a big load of names just like in 2020 than a few names on Monday, 2 ore on Wednesday, 1 more on Friday etc...

    I was really excited in 2020 when they "BOOM !, there you go 80 names mother fucker !" 🤣so I'm okay to wait a bit longer. Might means end of November now..

    yes those 2 co-headliners on saturday. Friday is sold out so people should be looking for it.

    According to Ken's declarations, the headliner for Saturday will only be announced when the headliner announces it. Monday pinkpop will announce its last headliner, two other headliners already announced are the same as RW (PJ and Metallica), in recent years, the maximum common headliners between the two festivals was 2 headliners in common, only in 2016 is that all Pinkpop headliners were the same as RW's.
    Pinkpop in today's ad put this in ( 🤘 ) , so kendrick must not be , I'm believing Bruce or Stones ... or someone who is forgotten 😆

    ANd we sure that this Pinkpop headliner is Saturays' RW ? 'cause I still think Kendrick is the missing headliner for RW, so the 🤘might be someone else.. Except Arctic Monkeys, I don't see any big rock act (headline level) missing so far.. ! (the Stones and AC/DC are unreachable for fests' to me, but who knows..)

  12. Well.. !, its been now 15 days exactly since the Sziget message " first names very soon " lol... I guess we're all fucked 🤣 🤣

    I have a "meeting" with many friends this week-end, and I was hoping to have some names by then, in order to convince most of them to come (so far we're only 2 ☹️) Hurry up guys, this is time when people decide what to do next Summer !

    There is not much sense for Adele to play any festival. She can take on a solo headline show anywhere in the world at least 5 x more money than any fest would pay her. Maybe as an image thing she would do Glasto or Coachella, to launch her tour, but dont think there is any sense in playing something like Mad Cool.


    This I agree 100%

    In monetary sense, she is astronomical. Yes, more than Beyonce and Madonna.

    but why lol, why does she needs all this money ?? 🤣 Even if i like her, I don't think her voice is stronger than Celine Dion for example.. +, if it's a matter of success, I can see Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, etc.. way more popular than her, just on social medias  (instagram etc..)

    So I don't get why everyone here thinks she's a Godess

    Can anyone make an educated guess as to when tickets will be on general sale? And how likely I'd be to get tickets?

    Looking to get a couple for a present. I was thinking of getting FIB tickets as a backup. They go on sale 10 November so if Sziget tickets aren't on sale by then I'm not sure what to do.

    Before the general sale, Sziget must tell which artists are gonna perform which days. So people can choose when to come if they don't take the 6 days pass.

    Soooo I would say 10th of November is a reasonnable guess ! ^^ But I'm sure we'll have names before that, if not this week , the first of November.

    I don't believe in this price of Metallica, they toured a lot before covid, this European tour is practically festival tour, post-covid I believe bands should have lower prices, at this price Metallica weren't in the line-up of NOS Alive .

    Metallica is the highest price HELLFEST ever paid for an artist/band. Before that, it was Rammstein, 2 millions €.

    So yes, I'm sure about the price (+, I've already heard before that Metallica was 3 Millions €, I just don't remember where, but I'm sure of it)

    Metallica are expensive but presumably take home less for a festival appearance than their own show.

    Adele is on another level above that. I doubt anyone will make more money than her next year.

    Another level, Adele ? Lol she only has 3 albums !, HOW can she be more expensive than a Madonna, Beyonce, etc...??? you're wrong guys, she's not THAT unique.

  17. I have to say, I don't understand this "blind love" towards Adele.

    I mean, she's a great singer of course !, but she is NOT unreachable for festivals. I see great female talents like Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Celine Dion etc...doing festivals, so why not Adele...?

    Considering Metallica cost between 2 and 2.5 millions €, Adele really ask for more...? She's very unlikely for Mad Cool, ok, but certainly not unreachable for next years or others fest'.

    I have literally never heard of Stromae prior to him being mentioned on here. What sort of interest does he command in Europe? Is he likely to be headliner, co-headliner or sub?

    In Belgium, Switzerland or France, this is headline level. In the rest of Europe, I would say at least co-head (in 2014 at Sziget, the A38 was full, people couldn't get in anymore so if he is here in 2022, he'll be on the mainstage, 100% sure)

    He'll also be at Coachella, we will see where on the line up, it can give you an idea ^^
