Balaton Sound will anncounce their first acts on December 10th, so we will see what won't come to Sziget

First announcement of Balaton is always a relief.

Also, I guess that Of Monster and Man and Alan Walker are done deal for Sziget

It's definitely Tom Walker, not Alan Walker.

Doesn't matter, the only good Walker I know is a dead Walker anyway

I don't know if we expected Pixies to perform at Sziget, but they've just been announced to Budapest Park at the beginning of September.

Going with expectations for the first announcement, at this point, I dig something like:

The Killers - Foals - Tiesto/AVB - Stormzy - Liam Gallagher - Wolf Alice - Of Monsters and Men - Pusha T - Lukas Grahm - Nothing but Thieves - Floating Points - Tycho - Meute - Tom Walker - Alan Walker - Whitney - The Neighbourhood - Alec Benjamin.

 

It is partially guesswork, and I hope they can throw in the mix something more convincing than this, as it would be really really weak. At this point of the story, I see no heavy name for the headliners spot (inb4: The Killers are not an heavy name), and although I am sure that they are holding their announcement back for some embargo/some unannounced name in the circuit, I am also kind of negative about what will come out. 

On the other hand, I am already 99% commited to Mad Cool and will be 100% unable to get to Sziget due to work stuff, so, yeah, well, good luck

I'd be happy with most of that top line but agree it is missing a BIG name or two (Ed and Foos last year are two the biggest you can get so there must be at least one this year, mustn't there?)

I really can't work out who they could be waiting for. Maybe a pop headliner like Timberlake or Taylor's next set of announcements.

If not, then maybe someone like The Strokes, Guns n Roses or AC/DC? (these are all names that are floating around as potentials at other festivals, especially Glastonbury).

I've got my fingers crossed for The Boss but suspect there's more chance of it being me than it is of being him!

Obviously you always are the boss ❤️

I guess that you can better bet on a pop headliner rather than a rockier, like the ones you named

None of those three you mentioned are really floating around for Glastonbury? The Strokes a bit but its not really likely at all given how much they like a good payday.

Maybe I'm behind the curve on Glastonbury rumours then. I know The Strokes keep being mentioned for Mad Cool and Rock Werchter, GnR are at the numerous South American Lollapollooza festivals next year and AC/DC are likely to announce a world tour in the next few weeks.

In honesty, there are a dozen bands I'd prefer to any of these but just speculating on what act(s) might be delaying a Sziget announcement.

Stroke have never played in Belguim, so cant see them at werchter.

Apart from one more big hitter, those headers seem a sziget lineup.

G n R have released one album of original material in 25 years. They're just a heritage act now, churning out the same setlist night after night. A great setlist but no surprises.

The Strokes blow hot and cold. Catch them hot and it's a night to remember.

AC/DC used to be the best live band on earth. Nowadays I'd rather paint the living room.

I suspect it's Timberlake. Which is a shame because Swift would be more entertaining and have a much more recognisable setlist.

Thanks :)

Sziget Italia Just said that odds are that names won't be release in DecemberScreenshot_20191203_193314_com.facebook.katana.thumb.jpg.0fec17c67189884041a2b6627c8e5693.jpg

I was beginning to get that feeling to be honest. It's pointless announcing any later than 15 December anyway as everyone's mind will be on the festive season.

They must be wanting to lead with their big name and it looks like either that name doesn't want anything releasing until the new year or they are still negotiating.

I think that we will get first names in early 2020 as on the site says that onther (1 day, 3-day and 5-day) tickets will be availabe in early 2020, and last year after Sziget dropped 1st wave of acts other ticket options were availabe. Thoughts? ??‍♂️?

I think it will be next year. If they don't make an announcement this week I can't see one until the new year.

talking of announcements Did lipa touring in June July so she could be there.

I think that Sam Smith and Lizzo outside England cant even sub a festival, Rosalia should not be touring and I don't even believe that Shakira exists in this dimension anymore

lets not forget its sziget. they let mano chao and mike headline on their own so sam is defo bigger.

about lizzo i think its like shawn mandez or maklamore - a strong sub that pushed to co headline.

 

shakira is the superbawl half time show performer (with j.lo) and every year the artist goes touring after it...

No, I believe that there is some misconception here: Macklemore and Shawn Mendez were globally successful when they headlined - even if you happen not to like them, you would know Thriftshop or Stitches, they were literally spammed everywhere possibe. Lizzo is a big thing, I agree, but I doubt she can solo-headline a show outside UK/US. Sam Smith on the other hand is a british sensation: I'm not saying he is unknown on the continent, but surely the hype that welcomes him in british fests is kind of hard to explain for a european: yeah, Sziget had a precedent with The 1975, but considered the poor selling on that full-brit day, I dare to say that they won't push so hard to conquer english fans this time.

Having said this, yeah, I can consider them being subbing a strong headliner - but that would be weak. Again, Sziget made Jain, Tove Lo and Years & Years sub-headliners, so that throws outta window any reasonable consideration about the whole thing.

 

Shakira is a big name, J.Lo is a big name, but both of them are out of the european circuits since ages and I'd be impressed if their agents decided to game in at this point of their careers, when they are too big not to get an headline spot but to risky for the sellings to actually give one. That was the same way for Britney Spears couple of years ago: yeah, that's Britney bitch, kay, but no serious festival would give away a major spot for you, so, yeah, hit me baby maybe another time, will ya?
