The modest Balaton village of Paloznak is known for bringing world-class acts to its jazz festival and the 2019 event features The Jacksons, Maceo Parker and now Rick Astley, just confirmed for the main stage.
The Paloznak Jazz Picnic has just confirmed that UK pop star Rick Astley will also perform at this summer's festival. The singer of evergreen hit Never Gonna Give You Up will take the stage on August 3, the same day as Maceo Parker and the Dutch duo, Adani&Wolf.
They will be joining several other stars already announced for the event, such as American saxophonist Maceo Parker and music legends The Jacksons as the international headliners for 2019. The festival takes place in Paloznak, near Csopak on Balaton's north shore, from August 1 to 3.
The Jacksons will play on the festival’s first day, August 1, along with Peet Project, a pop-funk-jazz ensemble from Budapest. Festival-goers also have the chance to see London's acid jazz and funk group, The Brand New Heavies, Hungarian blues musician Little G Weevil, and the jazz group of Silhouette & Vinx on the main stage on the second day, August 2.
