MUMFORD AND SONS, LORDE, MACKLEMORE ANNOUNCED AS SZIGET HEADLINERS

 

The Sziget music festival has added fifty performers to its lineup, including Mumford and Sons, Lorde, Macklemore, Bonobo, Arlo Parks, Yung Lean, Caroline Polachek and SG Lewis. The organisers said on Tuesday that the list of headliners is now full. The event to be held on August 10-15 will also feature Billie Eilish, David Guetta, Florence and the Machine, Foals, and Imagine Dragons, as announced earlier. Chief organiser Tamás Kádár said in a statement that preparations in cooperation with the metropolitan council of Budapest and the local council of Óbuda are also under way to prevent problems related to airborne dust that marred last summer’s event. Water from the River Danube will be used if necessary to reduce dryness, and a special technology will be used to create a cover on the ground making use of air moisture, he added.
