The Sziget organizers have posted quite an interesting announcement on the Sziget Festival UK Facebook page.
We’ve decided to post it because it says a few very interesting things, both regarding the lineup and the Sziget spirit.
Without further ado, here’s what it says:
We’re sorry for keeping you waiting for yesterday’s announcement. It wasn’t our plan to do so, but there was a problem with one of the acts that was planned to be announced. As soon as we (Sziget UK crew) were informed about the postponements, we informed you too.
At the same time we would like to remind you Sziget is not a British festival and some things work differently. We believe in many ways that works out positive for Sziget: Sziget has retained its good, old-fashioned festival values with a laid back atmosphere; a vast range of good quality, cheap food; inexpensive beer and no camping restrictions/cattle herding. The way acts are announced is a little different too (unlike many British festivals not all headliners are announced months before the festival and sometimes announcements may be postponed), but as many of you who’ve been before know: in the end Sziget always has a great, quirky, eclectic line-up. Just look at last year’s line-up and remember that at this time last year not one single act had been announced! 😉 And even if in the end there wouldn’t be much you want to see (of course we don’t expect that will be the case), we’re sure you would have a great week with the less well-known acts you can discover, with all other entertainment available at the festival and of course with all the people coming from all over Europe!
