The 15th Sziget Festival Budapest

August 7 – 14, 2007


The Sziget (Island) Festival is celebrating its 15th anniversary with its best ever line-up
and a concert from Hungary’s LGT on the eve of the festival.


Sziget Festival 2006 Budapest, Hungary
True to Sziget tradition, there are loads of other things beside music....
Theatre, dance, classical music, cabaret, performances, films, fine art, crafts, literary presentations, programs for kids, sports and other free time activities – basically everything that makes Sziget a unique event in the firmament of international festivals. The 15th anniversary event takes place between August 7 and 15 (including “day zero”).


Main Stage Line-Up


The 2007 Sziget Main Stage presents the strongest ever line up! Blue-eyed reggae, desert rock and roll, indie rock from Las Vegas and London, Norwegian woods, legendary 2-Tone ska, industrial and prog-rock highlights, and much more.


Day 0 – August 7

Special surprise: Locomotiv GT (LGT) makes a rare live appearance.
These local legends, one of the few Hungarian bands to ever make progress beyond the iron curtain in the 1970's, played their last concert in 2002.


Day 1 – August 8

Nitzer Ebb
– electronic-industrial and electric body music (EBM).
Mando Diao – one of the massive spearheads of the potent Scandinavian altrock army.

Chemical Brothers – Who could ask for more?


Day 3 – August 10

Gogol Bordello – freaky gypsy punk renegades who make the move to the main stage for Sziget 2007 after their smashing success at the WAN2 Stage during Sziget 2006.
Laurent Garnier – French techno-god.
Pink
Madness – one of the greatest party bands of all time.

NIN
Day 4 – August 11

The Hives – Swedish garage rockers.
Kispal es a Borz – Hungarian favorites; the leading force of the Hungarian alternative pop-rock scene for almost two decades.

Day 5 – August 12

Babylon Circus – potent blend of ska/punk/funk/chanson/folk/afro-beat/reggae!

Manu Chao
Razorlight – who, despite their hit in America, are indeed quite British.
Sinead O'Connor – highly important, exciting, and uncalm leading lady of Irish pop-rock.

Day 6 – August 13


Sportfreunde Stiller – German Indie-rocker-footballers.
!!! – new sensation from New York, NY; an eightpiece reminiscent of the days back in the good ol' eighties when the noisy and broken beats of new wave melted into funk.

Tool – a legend-in-the making.


Day 7 – August 14

The Eagles Of Death Metal – California rocker supergroup.
Juliette Lewis and the Licks – two years ago Lewis and her band rocked the Sziget with what proved to be one of the more memorable Sziget Main Stage gigs of recent years. Chris Cornell – Soundgarden, Audioslave and now some meaty solo material: one great thing after another for twenty years!
The Killers – THE quintessential stadium-rock band. Be there when they make the Sziget Dwellers party Las Vegas style to their catchy, dynamic, and smart pop-rock anthems.
