Ed Sheeran has been unveiled as the first headliner for Sziget Festival.

The English singer-songwriter will top the bill in Budapest on 7 August 2019 as part of a European stadium and festival tour, one which will also see him perform outdoor shows in Leeds and Ipswich whilst also headlining Italy’s Firenze Rocks and an airport in Helsinki.

The news comes as Sziget Festival gears up for yet another big edition not even one month after this year’s came to a close. Tickets for next summer’s mammoth event will go on sale on 1 October, with more big names set to follow in due course.
