To satisfy all of these people, Sziget organizers have always done a great job in booking a good mixture of musical acts, and this year is no different. British giants Robbie William and Florence + The Machine along with American rock band Kings of Leon headline a busy week of music on the Island of Freedom. But there are so many other bands performing, whether you’re a local or a tourist, it is hard to decide who to see.

So Budapest Local’s music enthusiasts have looked over this year’s lineup and here are our curated list of some Sziget bands to see in 2015.

Milky Chance (German)


Where? A38 Stage
When? Sun August 16, 11:45 PM – 1:00 AM

From the small town of Kassel, Clemens and Philipp form the German duo Milky Chance. They are one of the last bands to play on the last night of the festival, but stick around to check out why their first single Stolen Dance is one of the most “Shazamed” songs of all time.

Future Islands (USA)


Where? A38 Stage
When? Tue August 11, 10:00 PM – 11:15 PM

Future Islands have been around for a few years now but they really broke out in the US last year and are not looking back. Check them out at Sziget before they become massive in Europe. They are an amazing live band and Samuel T. Herring is one for the top front men in music today.

Bin-Jip (Hungarian)


Where? Petőfi Radio – Telekom VOLT Festival Stage
When? Fri August 14, 6:15 PM – 7:30 PM

Singer Veronika Harcsa elegantly signs over top of a loop machine accompanied by DJ Andrew and jazz guitarist Bálint Gyémánt.

Airtist (Hungarian/Austrian)


Where? Afro-Latin-Reggae Village
When? Wed August 12, 11:00 PM – 12:30 AM

This energetic trio (2/3 Hungarian and 1/3 Austrian) uniquely combines a beatbox, a didgeridoo and a jew’s-harp. You will have to see it to believe it.

Ivan and the Parazol (Hungarian)

When? Sat August 15, 11:30 PM – 1:00 AM
