Sziget is Europe’s most diverse festival and the fifth biggest in the world. So what better platform for the biggest-selling artist on the planet to take to the stage for a headline performance on Budapest’s historic Óbuda Island?

Ed Sheeran‘s infectious singalong tunes and stories of love, loss and youth have earned him countless awards and the title of current king of pop, and are set to be the perfect soundtrack to Sziget’s Love Revolution in August 2019.

Szitizen Prime passes for Sziget 2019 are on sale from 1 October. For more information, head to szigetfestival.com


Ed Sheeran begun his career busking on the streets of London and living on mates’ sofas.
Fast forward ten years and Sheeran is selling out stadium tours, playing to hundreds of thousands of people with nothing but a guitar and loop pedal to protect him.

With three UK No. 1 albums and five UK No. 1 singles, he’ll be bringing his tongue-in-cheek blend of pop, folk and hip-hop to the Sziget Main Stage.

Sziget turned 26 in August this year. The seven-day festival saw headline performances from the world’s biggest acts including Kendrick Lamar, Gorillaz, Lana Del Rey, Mumford & Sons, Dua Lipa, Kygo and Arctic Monkeys. Over 1,000 artists and performers from the world over took to Óbuda Island including Stormzy, Shame, Shawn Mendes, Goo Goo Dolls, Slaves and many more.

More than just its headliners, Sziget brought together a programme of world music, theatre, cabaret, installations, performances and art, with Szitizens flocking from over 100 nations to experience the ‘Island of Freedom’. With preparations well underway for 2019, Sziget is preparing for its biggest and best year to date.

Exclusive Szitizen Prime passes will be on sale for 24 hours from 1st October. As well as a 7 or 5-day ticket to next year’s festival the pass will include a beanie, gym bag, stainless steel straw, patches, pins, and stickers.

Sziget returns in 2019 between 7th-13th August. For more details on Sziget head to szigetfestival.com.

We see you Electric Castle and accepted the challenge! Sziget Crew has gathered in front of their laptop screens and covered Dua Lipa’s Don’t Start Now, home office-style – of course. 🏠

Ps.: If you wish to hear a better sounding version of the song (we don’t see why you’d think that, though 🤷), go ahead and give Dua Lipa’s new album a listen!

** #SZIGET **

A Sziget Crew is elfogadta az Electric Castle kihívását, így szorgos, közös munkával elkészítettük saját Dua Lipa feldolgozásunkat – szigorúan a home office falai között! 🏠

U.i.: Ha úgy érzitek, hogy egy fokkal jobb zenei élményre vágynátok (bár nem tudjuk miért tennétek 🤷), hallgassátok meg Dua Lipa múlt héten megjelent albumát! 🙂

Hi, I see the playlist has music from artist playing this year but at the end of the playlist there are a few artist that have not been announced, including Childish Gambino. What's up with that? 🙂
