The Sziget crew is happy to announce the first names confirmed for the music program of this year’s ’Island of Freedom’. Queens of the Stone Age, Calvin Harris, Placebo and many more will definitely be at Óbudai Island in the heart of Budapest this summer.
In 2014 the ’Island of Freedom’ will take place one week later than previously. Károly Gerendai, founder and main organizer of Sziget Festival, said: „It seems like a good decision that we put the date of Sziget one week later, because now we can announce better names compared to this time last year. To put it simple there is a better chance that bands are on a European tour at this part of the month.”
Sziget Festival was once again shortlisted amongst the top ten major European festivals this year at the European Festival Awards. As always, the music line-up will feature acts from various genres, while stars and smaller, but super exciting acts will both be presented at the stages of the event.

Day 0 (August 12) will be a terrific warm-up day, where among many acts Queens of the Stone Age will rock the stage, so those who have a weekly pass with camping can enjoy the gig of the Californian band. There is an upgrade possibility for those who have a 5 day pass and would like to get the full 7-day experience. The full program of the warm-up days will be revealed shortly.
More acts to come in the upcoming weeks!
See you in August!
