The pop princess and virtual rockstars join the phenomenal lineup as headline acts including Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar, Kygo and Mumford & Sons, with Stormzy, JP Cooper, Shawn Mendes and many more names just added.
Sziget is proud to announce Dua Lipa and Gorillaz will be headlining its 26th edition of the festival, alongside Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar, Kygo and Mumford & Sons.
Arguably the biggest female artist of this year, Dua Lipa is one of the latest confirmed headliners of Budapest’s Sziget festival. The ‘New Rules’ singer has earned herself a record-breaking five Brit awards, a performance at the Grammy Awards and worldwide recognition at just the young age of 22.
She’s joined by the collaborative art-music project by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, Gorillaz. After returning from hiatus with the star-studded Humanz album, the legendary virtual rock group are returning to the festival eight years after their first appearance.
Teen heartthrob Shawn Mendes has also been added to the Sziget 2018 lineup as he teases his highly anticipated third album. Joining him will be multi-MOBO award winning grime sensation Stormzy, whose debut album was the first grime album to reach number one of the UK Albums Chart.
Also performing are Grammy-award winning indie band, The War on Drugs, multi-instrumentalist Lianne La Havas and Manchester’s own JP Cooper. In addition to this, Australian rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have also been announced after releasing an impressive five albums in 2017.
