Hungary’s VOLT Festival announced the first names of its 2019 lineup. The 27th edition of VOLT will be held in the western Hungarian town of Sopron between June 26 and 29, 2019.
Legendary Hungarian rock band Tankscapda will “warm up” the stage for opening day’s headliner, heavy metal band Slipknot. The next day’s top hit will be Slash Ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. VOLT’s old friend Austrian electro-swing legend Parov Stelar is on the lineup again with German DJ-producer Robin Schulz and American singer-songwriter LP. In addition to Tankcsapda (who will celebrate their 30th anniversary), Hungarian acts Majka, Rúzsa Magdi and Punnany Massif will also perform.
The organizers promise further announcements over the course of the upcoming months.
VOLT began as a tiny festival run by two 19-year-olds, Zoltán Fülöp and Norbert Lobenwein, but has since become the second biggest festival in Hungary after Sziget. The festival was voted Best European medium-sized festival in 2015’s European Festival Awards.
