Anybody ever stayed in The pod pads? Any good? They’re by the bridge I believe? Good showers/facilities?

same goes for wooden houses in vip, and is the pool good or super busy? 

Any info would be brill 

Pod Pads is a good camping site next to the bridge with showers and facilities but no shadow for tents ... I never could sleep until 9 am, so I'd slept about twenty hours in total in the week. ..

Because it was too hot? What tent did you have?

The pool tends to be busy at all times, but you'll always be able to get a spot. People tend to sit on the side of the pool with their feet inside water, but there's not much people really swimming around. So even though it is kind of busy, it does not directly disturb you, as it is expected to be busy.

During last days you'll start to notice some dirt inside the water, but i suppose it just happens after 5-6 days of constant use.

Reckon George Ezra could possibly headline/co-headline one of the days, as they need another "pop" headliner, as they usually have at least two.

George Ezra in Hungary, despite the song Budapest, is well far from being even a subheadliner (but he is a worthy 2nd spot)

So still nothing from the official site. Guess we have to wait until middle/end of february until we get new bands? 

Last year I think the 2nd announcement came around 19th February, so imagine it will be about the same this year. All depends on ticket sales though, as they will probably want to use the next announcement as an excuse to hike the tickets up to the next price tier, however if they are selling well at the moment, they will probably leave it for a while longer before they announce new bands to try and increase sales.

If its selling well, then they will hike prices up soon to capitalise on this surely?

could the fact that they wait to announce bands help to get some acts that aren't playing every festival around this time?

I still hope for weezer, the strokes, kate nash, marina (and the diamonds), vampire weekend, EMINEM (even if unexpected), editors, ...

well, we can only wait and hope, I guess...

It’s normal to announce bands every so often, majority of festivals do it this way.

To be honest, I feel like this second announcement is gonna be too hard to predict. For the first announcement, we could base predictions a lot off the Reading headliners, and also we knew Florence was likely to return as she's making it round the festivals this season. However, for this announcement, there are so many different possibilities for acts that could be added that makes it almost unpredictable.

First of all, looking at Reading's new announcement and the current line up at Reading; I think it is likely we will get Billie Ellish, Royal Blood, Blossoms, Mura Masa or The Wombats in the next Sziget announcement. These acts would only sub at best though.

Throwing more acts into the potential undercard which have performed at Sziget before, Ella Eyre, George Ezra, Tom Odell, Marina. Could definitely see Editors thrown into the mix as well.

Honestly there's so many possibilities, however we still have at least 3 headliners to go. I would expect one more of these to be a pop headliner and one to be rap, making the last rock/indie. Therefore I am going to take a guess at Ellie Goulding to return with her new album, Eminem as the rap headline and Tame Impala, who could potentially co-headline with someone else.

To be honest, I'm probably completely wrong and this is just my take on things; there's also DJ acts to consider but that once again seems unpredictable to me.

It’ll be my first time at Sziget but the unpredictability is great! 

 

Hoping we don’t get the pop headliner on Sunday!

There's some interesting thoughts. 

Blossoms played Sziget last year, so they probably won't return so soon. Billie Eilish and Mura Masa can play late night A38 slot, but there's no way they can sub main stage now. The Wombats are a good shout, haven't played Sziget since 2008 and Hungary since 2015, and as I know they are kinda popular there. Royal Blood could go down so well before Foo Fighters, four hour long madness, but they'll probably co-headline with The 1975 to make this day even more attractive for Brits. 

Talking about headliners, seems that many festivals are waiting for someone big to announce all dates of its tour at once, so Eminem is an option. Last year he announced his July tour in the end of January, so there's still some time to do it. But considering Sziget already have two really expensive artists (Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters) I'm not so sure about him.

I think that we'll get Travis Scott / A$AP Rocky / Macklemore as hip-hop headliner, The Prodigy as electronic headliner and Tame Impala as indie one. Franz Ferdinand and The Good the Bad & the Queen could sub main stage or play A38 opposite main stage headliner.

This will be my family's first visit to Sziget and we were attracted by the acts already announced so anything extra will be a bonus for us. I agree that booking Eminem on top of Ed Sheeran and Foo Fighters would be mega-expensive but phenomenal. However, I suspect Travis Scott is more likely. I think Tame Impala are also nailed on. I'm surprised that The Prodigy is still seen as a headline act but it also wouldn't surprise me if they appear, along with Royal Blood.

Christine and the Queens would make my wife and daughter very happy.

Although I expect an electronic-dense announcement (Party Arena got no love so far), I go for my picks:

Main Stage: James Bay could be a good subheadliner for Ed Sheeran, Royal Blood a good co-headliner for The 1975 (as somebody else pointed out); for a rap headliner, sadly, I'm negative for Eminem, but I think we will get something like A$AP Rocky before Martin Garrix (so we got the swiggy swaggy night set), I also can see Tame Impala announced as an headliner (or sub-head of Florence, or sub-head of something classy like The National, that in turn, could also be subbed by Franz Ferdinand). Minor names that I suppose could spawn around are: Django Django, The Wombats, Daughters, Rag n Bone Man. But maybe I'm a little too optimistic.

A38: Even trickier. Supposed we have three headliners (CHVRCHES, Jungle, Kodaline), I'd go for a wild bet and point my finger on Robyn, Jorja Smith, Bloc Party and James Blake. The point here is that maybe I am too optimistic as Robyn and James Blake could easily fill a sub-headliner spot on Main Stage on their own. For the night my biggest consideration goes to Modeselektor, Jon Hopkins, Boys Noize, Wilkinson (although this is more of an hope than a prediction, for likely that that is). Less likely, but always credible: Sub Focus, Chase and Status, Richie Hawtin, Carpenter Brut, Four Tet, Astrix, Helena Hauff, Nina Kraviz, respectively from the one I'll bet more on to the least. Undercards, I'd simply go for Sigrid, AJ Tracey, Denzel Curry, Billie Eilish, Girl in red, A Day to Remember, Little Simz.

Party Arena: never been a fan, so cannot go so much in dept. Few names I heard quite often in the circuit lately are Salvatore Ganacci, Hugel, Oliver Heldens, Allison Wonderland, Afrojack.

For the Colosseum I don't think we will get nothing as usually its lineup is released in one time forward in time. Also, RIP World Stage

Nope, they played 22.00 in 2016, clashing with Many Chao... They really are a filler, as Balthazar and Oscar & the Wolf, as long as they there people from Netherlands (or Belgium?) are happy and that's what management wants
