Bloody Beetroots maybe the most intense...

I bet that was a show, saw them at werchter which don't have the most lively crowds. Would of been on a different level at Sziget.

Stromae, Bloody Beetroots and M83.

Still remember how they closed A38 and we had to riot and climb over the security to get inside Stromae concert 😀

And crazy people climbing on a38 pillars during Bloody Beetroots, so they had to shutdown the music for a while.

Dont remember Infected Mushroom, which year it was?

The Strokes are pretty active in Europe this summer, just announced a string of festivals, hopefully Sziget is in the pipeline...image.png.80e070c3021f9c2699645926b185ea4a.png

Yes, sorry!!! This is the correct link. :) Sadly I can't edit my previous comment anymore. It's not exactly a transcript, but it's more like a summary of what they discussed there. The part we are most interested in is this one (translated with Google Translate):

 

I've given this a bit of thought over the last few days and I'm struggling to understand why he announced this.

I appreciate that it was in a seemingly "safe" environment but what could be gained by this compared to what could be lost?

What could be lost?

  1. Ticket sales - while Mad Cool, Primavera, Rock Werchter, Lollapalooza Stockholm etc are announcing big name line-ups, Sziget is saying they're struggling to attract acts. If you are a casual ticket buyer this Is hardly going to entice you along!
  2. Bargaining power - all the agents in the world now know you're struggling to get big name acts so they could quite easily add a few hundred thousand euros to their act's price as they are in the position of power now.
  3. Goodwill from those who have already bought tickets - people across social media and venting their frustration at the lack of an announcement (or even an announcement about when we might expect the announcement!) They many now fear they've bought into a lame duck and try to change their plans. If nothing is announced soon, we could soon see a surge of Sziget tix for sale on secondary ticketing sites.

It's now the latest they've announced for at least five years.  I can't understand why they can't just announce a few acts to whet the appetite.

I'm sure it'll all come good but just finding the waiting game a bit frustrating!

Or he is being smug knowing the line up is going to blow all the competition away. 😃

I think we know the line up is going to be a bit average, that's whatcsziget does and we still love it.

That would certainly be nice. There would be nothing better for Sziget than announcing a festival exclusive of someone that all other festivals (and festival-goers) are jealous of. Only names I can think of who 'might' be about that could fall into that category are Springsteen, RATM, Gaga or Adele (in order of likeliness!).

oh woww! you took a risk with Stromae.. with just went there earlier and caught Bonobo's set -great as well!

Infected Mushroom was 2015 I think,

but really M83 surpasses all... hard to describe the experience/ emotions!

I'd certainly like any of the first three but can't imagine any of them (except, perhaps, Gaga) being on the Sziget wishlist after Sheeran last year, which resulted in big day ticket sales (and issues) but no significant increase (to the best of my knowledge) in 3, 5 and 7 day ticket sales.

Not sure how 'new' this info is but just noticed on their website that Foals are playing Grape Festival in Slovakia, which takes place on 7/8 August. It's located less than 100 miles from Budapest.

They must be playing Sziget, mustn't they?

I really hope that they are headliners, i'm sure they will smash it!

That band would indeed perfectly fit , it's a "sziget match" band to me ^^ But the guy who seems well informed (soSadSimon) said they would like to make it happen, but they don't know where to fit them in in the line up ...
