The Hungarian festival has announced the final headliner for its next edition.

Sziget is set to make its return to the Budapest island Óbudai-sziget on 7-13 August. The National have been confirmed as the event’s final headliner, and those joining them on the line-up include Big Thief, Mura Masa, David August, Khruangbin and more. Check out the full list of newly-announced acts below.

The Budapest event has previously confirmed IAMDDB, James Blake and Years & Years for this summer’s programme. Last year, Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa, the Arctic Monkeys and Lana Del Rey headlined the festival.

Founded in 1993, Sziget now stands as the fifth largest festival in the world and has, over the decades, welcomed icons such as David Bowie, Patti Smith and Prince to its stages.
