The festival will be set in the heart of Budapest on Óbuda Island welcoming Szitizens from over 100 nations. Sziget is a community built festival and known as the Island of Freedom. It is dedicated to embracing diversity and has launched Love Revolution. Love Revolution will use the power of community to bring love, acceptance, tolerance and freedom to the heart of Budapest.

As a multi Grammy winning American sensation, Kendrick Lamar will bring his soaring ambition and lyrical talent to the stage. Also, Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo has a unique electronic sound to show Sziget fans that has been selling out stadiums since his rise to fame 4 years ago. Completing the headline bill and bringing with them a whole host of singalong hits will be undisputed kings of folk rock Mumford & Sons.

Not only will the headliners bring serious talent to the stage in 2018, but also all the other artists. Rock N’ Roll Star Liam Gallagher is hot off the back of his debut solo album and long overdue announcement as NME’s Godlike Genius 2018. London rockers and best mates Wolf Alice and Slaves will be bringing their unparalleled energy to the Hungarian stage. Furthermore, American rock band, Goo Goo Dolls, will be performing alongside kings of nostalgia The Knocks, indie masters Bastille, electro alt-pop geniuses Everything Everything, homeless turned folk-hero Seasick Steve, as well as Cigarettes After Sex, Nothing But Thieves and many more.

Additionally, electronic acts will be prominent at this year’s festival. There will be a spectacular array of acts including chart toppers Clean Bandit, who will be gracing the stage with their classical inspired electropop. Equally important, Danish singer, songwriter and electropop producer  and electronic music legends Little Dragon promise to mystify Szitizens with their iconic blend of music.
