The fifth biggest festival in the world also welcomes new additions James Blake, Franz Ferdinand, Tove Lo, Years & Years, Richie Hawtin CLOSER, IAMDDB, Razorlight, Yeasayer and more!
POST MALONE joins previously announced Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine, Foo Fighters, Twenty One Pilots, The 1975 and Martin Garrix on the headline bill. New additions announced today include some of the most exciting established and up-and-coming artists in the world, including the likes of genre-bending Jazz fusionist Masego, teenage indie-soul breakthrough Yellow Days, Arabic and African-influenced French popstar Jain, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd and political reggae revivalists Protoje & The Indiggnation.
23-year old POST MALONE is one of the most recognisable and successful artists in rap history. His 2016 album Stoney broke Michael Jackson’s 34-year-old record for most weeks on Billboard’s Top R&B and Hip-Hop Albums with Thriller, and his unique musical style that blends country, grunge, hip-hop and R&B earned him four Grammy nominations in 2019.
Hot off the back of his latest hit album, Grammy-nominated singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer extraordinaire JAMES BLAKE also joins the lineup. With two albums planned for this year, early-noughties post-punk figureheads FRANZ FERDINAND are set to grace the Hungarian stage for the first time since 2013, while evocative British synth-pop powerhouse YEARS & YEARS promise to get the whole crowd dancing.
Grammy-nominated multi-platinum recording Swedish superstar TOVE LO’S grunge-tinged pop hits are set to be a festival highlight. New additions to Sziget for 2019 include Detroit techno legend RICHIE HAWTIN CLOSER, indie-rock comeback heroes RAZORLIGHT, international dance vocalist ELDERBROOK, experimental rockers YEASAYER and SON LUX, breakthrough Mancunian rapper-singer IAMDDB, German synth-pop wizard ROOSEVELT and more.
