Budapest’s Island of Freedom also hosts Muse and Bastille.

Fourteen new acts have been announced for Hungary’s Sziget Festival, taking place 10th-17th August in the very exotic-sounding Island of Freedom, outside of Budapest.

Shape-shifting pop star Sia leads the new names. She’ll be joined at the week-long festival by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and the newly-arranged Crystal Castles.

There’s also an UNKLE live set, plus performances from Aurora and UK producer Tourist.

These new names join Bastille (busy working on LP2, as it stands), Bring Me the Horizon, CHVRCHES, The Last Shadow Puppets, Years & Years and Sigur Rós.

Tickets for Sziget 2016 are available here.
