Two more acts are now self-confirmed for this year’s Sziget Festival on their official MySpace pages (thanks a lot, Mellowmaniac & Gaborka78).
First of all, there’s Cankisou, a Czech band (from Brno), that are set to play the Sziget Festival 2010 World Music Stage on August 11, according to their official MySpace. The date is also confirmed on their official website.
Then, Tony Allen is also self-confirmed on his MySpace page. Tony Allen is a very experienced drummer (and one of Africa’s most appreciated).
As our friend Mellowmaniac told us,
As drummer of the legendary Fela Kuti he was one of the innovators of the Afro-Beat.
In later years he collaborated with Damon Albarn (Blur), Paul Simonon (The Clash), and Simon Tong (The Verve) as “The Good, The Bad & The Queen”.
Other collaborations he did in the last few years are with finish electrojazzer Jimi Tenor, and the french artists Air, Sebastian Tellier and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
If you remember, The Good, The Bad & The Queen have played Sziget’s Main Stage in 2007.
