Unfortunately, several international tours will be missed this year due to the coronavirus, that affects the original program of the STRAND Festival as well. Of this year’s performers, SUM 41, Ellie Goulding and Milky Chance have cancelled their entire tour, but it has already been agreed that all of them will make up for the missed concerts at STRAND 2021.

However, we have some good news as well.

Several international performers, including Parov Stelar, Timmy Trumpet, Martin Solveig and Wilkinson have confirmed their arrival in Zamárdi, and today some new names also got on the list.

Lost Frequencies is preparing as the headliner in Zamárdi; furthermore, Alle Farben, Sikdope, Funtcase, Chime, Franky Nuts and Oliverse, along with another 150 performers will also perform at the festival this August. The organisers are announcing more and more programs and performers, and even more can be expected in the upcoming days or weeks.

This year’s STRAND festival is of greater interest than ever before. Nevertheless, organisers emphasise that in case it cannot be held in August, tickets will be redeemed, as is the case of all other Hungarian festivals.
