As promised, the last announcement has come today. The last name to grace Sziget 2013 is The Fratellis. The announcement was supposed to include two names, the first one being Babylon Circus, which we told you about earlier. The news about The Fratellis playing Sziget 2013, together with Babylon Circus, has been officially confirmed by the organizers in a post on the Sziget Official Facebook page. Now that things are pretty much final, and Sziget 2013 is less than a week away, you can still vote in the Sziget 2013 line up poll, if you haven’t done so already.
Sziget 2013 is close to its beginning, but we still have some “holes” left in the program. Well, the organizers promise to fill them in an announcement, which is imminent. According to an answer on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook page, the announcement will come “very soon”. The same answer also mentions that only one of the two names to be announced will be a “bigger” one. We’re just as curious as you are! Who do you think Sziget will announce?
The Sziget organizers will be answering questions coming from Sziget fans tonight, between 7:30 and 8:30 PM, on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook page. Károly Gerendai, main organizer and founder of Sziget, Tamás Kádár, CEO and Project Manager of Sziget and Zoltán Fülöp, Head of Programming will be the ones answering your questions, so make sure you’re part of things. Also important is that the Tribute Stage for this year’s Sziget has its schedule published on the official site. You can check it out here.
Azealia Banks will no longer be playing Sziget 2013.The sad news has been announced by the Sziget organizers earlier today on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook page. Said page mentions the “unforeseen physical pressure of her tour” as the reason for the cancellation. A replacement has already been put into place - French percussion band, Les Tambours du Bronx will be playing Sziget Festival 2013 instead of Azealia Banks.
The Irish Pub Stage now has its full schedule published. The schedule of the stage is now online on the official site and you can check it out here. The stage programs will start on August 6, which is good news for those arriving early. A Jam de la Creme will also be taking place, like last year, which should be interesting info especially for Dutch Sziget goers. (thanks Peer and Steven!)
