This year Sziget is nominated in two categories: ‘Best Major European Festival’ and ‘Best European Line-up’ at the European Festival Awards. Now we count on our Szitizens to get Sziget not just into the top 10 festivals of Europe, but actually win the awards and let the whole world know what Sziget is all about!
Madeon has cancelled his gig last minute due to health issues, D.O.D will replace him tonight on the A38 Stage.
London Grammar has already cancelled many of their summer shows and unfortunately they just called off their Sziget gig as well. However the agency of the band has quickly recommended another great band, so after their huge success at Balaton Sound, Clean Bandit, will play at Sziget.
As of 4th August, only day tickets are available for Sziget Festival that kicks off on 11th August.
