HUNGARIAN MUSICIANS AT SZIGET MAIN STAGE INCLUDE AZAHRIAH, BETON.HOFI, MARGARET ISLAND

 

The Main Stage at this year’s Sziget Festival will feature Hungarian headliners Azahriah, Beton.Hofi and the Margaret Island group, while several other stages will showcase hundreds of other Hungarian acts between August 7 and 12, the organisers said. The Main Stage will offer an opportunity for Hungarian musicians to use the event as a springboard to enter the international scene, they said in a statement. Azahriah, who has recently filled the Budapest Puskás Aréna three times on three consecutive days, is slated to draw an audience of up to 70,000. Beton.Hofi will perform a show with the world renowned Rajkó Gypsy Orchestra and Margaret Island celebrating its 10th birthday will put on a multidisciplinary act with guest dancers of Szeged Contemporary Ballet.
