One of Sziget’s most colored venues, the Magic Mirror has a very interesting schedule this year, too. The schedule has been posted on the official site and it’s in our lineup page, too. The Magic Mirror starts its program on August 8. (thanks go to Steven).
ILL Kill Squad is another interesting act to perform at Sziget 2012. The Dutch breakdance act will be at this year’s festival, according to an article on De Gerdenlander. If you watch their videos, you’ll see that it’s a performance well worth checking out. Without further ado, check out this video by them. And if you liked that one, you should know that you can always check out other performances by them on their official Facebook group, where they have quite a few of them posted. (thanks go to Steven!)
There’s not always good news to share. Sometimes, there’s an information like the one for today that has to be posted. Unfortunately, the fact that Flying Lotus was not in the official schedule was a sign that the performance would be cancelled. According to quart.hu, Flying Lotus will be working on the new album, due in October. That is why all August dates are cancelled. The full article can be read here (Hungarian), and this is the Google-translated version. The article also mentions some good news: the addition of New Zealand's Electric Wire Hustle, to play the A38, on August 9. (thanks, dzsinni!)
According to the program on the official Hungarian website, there will be yet another venue at Sziget 2012. It is called the Inmedio Drink & Bar and a lot of acts will be playing it every day. The fun will begin every day (starting on August 8) at 14:00 hours and the last act will go on at 3:00 am. The full schedule is already in our line up page. We also have some other interesting info. A Facebook event page has been established for those planning to visit Sziget 2012 by themselves and meet new people. Camp Unknown is the name and they
Sportfreunde Stiller are the last missing act for the Sziget 2012 Main Stage to be confirmed. Their name is listed on the schedule on the official website as playing Friday, August 10:00, at 18:00 hours. And since only one name was missing, that makes the Main Stage lineup complete. Flying Lotus, on the other hand, seem to have went completely out of the picture n(at least for Main Stage), as they’re nowhere in the schedule. (thanks go to mellowmaniac once more)
Another name has selfconfirmed Sziget 2012. John B, the British DJ and producer, will be playing Sziget Festival 2012. According to his official website, as well as his Facebook page, John B is set to play Sziget 2012 on August 11. That’s also where you’ll find some of him music, if you want to check it out. (thanks go to our friends at Fesztivalok Varosa!)
…at least in the Virgin blog’s view. In case you still need to discover some of the acts playing Sziget 2012, the Virgin blog features a very interesting article. It’s a presentation of some of the best British acts playing Sziget 2012, and you might want to check it out. Among the artists they recommend are Anna Calvi and The Stone Roses. You can check it out right here.
And just as we posted the news about Tankcsapda, another confirmation is coming. This time it was from the Sziget Festival UK Facebook page. We’re talking about English hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks, also set to play Sziget 2012. (thanks, alex!)
Another name is confirmed, and this time it’s one that usually plays Sziget. We’re talking about legendary Hungarian band Tankcsapda, set to play the Main Stage on August 9, according to the official Sziget site for the UK. The site lists them as playing on Thursday at 19:45, right before Korn. That same site has Friendly Fires moved to the A38, on the same day. (thanks, Balint!)
No news today, just a quick reminder that Sziget 2012 starts in exactly one month from today. In exactly one month, it will be Day –2, the day of the Hungarian song, followed by the Csik Zenekar night on Day –1. And then, it will be Day 0, the metal day, and the full Sziget will be on its way after that, with the whole lineup… Hopefully, this month passes fast!
