The first couple months of the year are like the offseason for sports. There’s no actual events happening, but there’s all sorts of speculation and waiting for lineups to drop. Although they were early in dropping their Stage 1 lineup, we would be remiss to not mention Sziget Festival taking place in Budapest, Hungary from August 7-12.
Featuring Fred Again.., Martin Garrix, Sam Smith and Stormzy as headliners, Sziget is one of the premiere European festivals to visit, not just because of its stellar lineup, which ventures outside the dance music realm, but also because of its magical location on Budapest’s Óbuda Island. Other dance music highlights include Four Tet, Richie Hawtin, Dom Dolla and ARTBAT. For non-EDM fans, two names that stand out on the lineup are former One Direction-er Louis Tomlinson and indie-rock faves Big Thief.
