Arctic Monkeys, Dua Lipa and Kings Of Leon to headline Sziget Festival 2022

Sziget Festival, situated in Budapest, Hungary announces its return from a two year hiatus in spectacular style with the first line up reveal featuring the likes of world class headliners ARCTIC MONKEYS, DUA LIPA AND KINGS OF LEON.

Joining them on the Island Of Freedom is a heady mix of some of the best established and up and coming artists in the world today including the enigmatic LITTLE SIMZ, grime tearaway SLOWTHAI, Scotland’s inimitable crooner LEWIS CAPALDI, world class DJ/Producer HONEY DIJON, Scandinavian king of Sad-Boy rap YUNG LEAN and many, many more. More than just a music festival, Sziget is an Island Of Freedom – an escape from everyday life, where its Szitizens experience the joy of discovery and adventure – an ideal destination for UK revellers to book an escape next summer.

With rumours of a brand new studio album inbound THE ARCTIC MONKEYS, one of the biggest bands in the world today are a mouth watering addition to an absolutely stacked line up. The Sheffield quartet who last performed live in 2019 have already announced a string of European dates for 2022, with drummer Matt Helders revealing the group’s upcoming seventh album – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ was likely to arrive this summer – meaning Sziget attendees will be some of the first to witness it played live.

International pop star and critically acclaimed artist DUA LIPA will also be appearing on the Island Of Freedom to perform hits from her incredibly successful back catalogue. ‘Future Nostalgia’ – her grammy winning second studio album release last year is currently the number 1 longest running album on Spotify’s Global Album Charts, and with a slew of pop bangers including the likes of ‘New Rules’, IDGAF and ‘One Kiss’ the Albanian songstress is sure to delight the Sziget masses.

Needing no introduction Nashville brothers KINGS OF LEON are an essential addition to any big festival line-up and are certain to ensure Sziget goes off in true rock and roll style. Earlier this year they became the first band in the world to release their new album – ‘When You See Yourself’ in the form of an NFT, and with a back catalogue recognised the world over they are set to be one of the absolute highlights of Sziget 2022.

Featuring alongside them on the star-studded Sziget 2022 line up are an absolute wealth of the most exciting artists the world currently has to offer with the likes of Scottish soul superstar LEWIS CAPALDI, critically acclaimed rapper LITTLE SIMZ, much-lauded DJ / Producer CARIBOU, electronic music sensation JON HOPKINS, hyped New York rapper PRINCESS NOKIA, Swedish Sad-Boy YUNG LEAN, Belgian Rapper STROMAE, musical maverick FLOATING POINTS, internationally renowned DJ HONEY DIJON and many, many more…

Sziget festival celebrates diversity and community, bringing together people from all over the world and providing a place of freedom of expression, where revellers can experience an escape from everyday life.

More than just its headliners, Sziget brings together a programme of world music, cabaret, comedy, screenings, workshops, wellness activities, installations, performances and art, as well as boat parties and more at Sziget beach. Set in the heart of Budapest on Óbuda Island, Sziget is a community built festival and known as the ‘Island of Freedom’. Attended by Szitizens from over 100 countries each year, the festival is dedicated to embracing diversity as a part of its ‘Love Revolution’, using the power of the community to celebrate and bring love, acceptance, tolerance and freedom to the heart of Budapest and beyond. With preparations well underway for next August, 2022 is set to be Sziget’s biggest and best festival to date.
