Sziget can today reveal that Arctic Monkeys will join its 26th edition in 2018 in Budapest. The indie royalty is another huge headline addition to the multi award-winning festival which will see worldwide superstars perform to hundreds of thousands, including Kendrick Lamar, Mumford & Sons, Kygo, Liam Gallagher, Bastille, MØ and many more already announced.
The iconic British indie rock band made up of the legendary Alex Turner, Matt Helders, Jamie Cook and Nick O’Malley will jet off to Budapest’s Sziget Festival in August. One of the United Kingdom’s most revered and beloved bands, the Arctic Monkeys are one of the most important acts of their generation.
Since forming in Sheffield in 2002 the band skyrocketed to success with their debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not‘, which was the fastest selling album in UK chart history on its release in 2006.
Since then the band has been on a meteoric rise to legendary status, with four more critically acclaimed albums, numerous awards, Glastonbury headline performances and number one singles globally all under their belt. The four-piece will be bringing their inimitable distinct brand of British rock and roll to Sziget.
