Non-Musical Programs at Sziget 2016

non-musical programs

In the last few weeks, we've seen lots of exciting - and perhaps not so exciting - acts announced to perform on one of Sziget 2016's stages. But let's not forget that Sziget is not just another music festival. This year, just like in the past, they will offer their visitors a variety of non-musical programs to attend, all adding the now legendary "Sziget feeling". Here they are. Transe Express - Mù Transe Express is a popular street theater group from France, with two previous performances at Sziget (in 2006 and 2007). This year they will return to the "stage" with Mù,

Competing Festivals Swipe Sziget Headliners in 2015

Although the budget of the Sziget Festival has grown to 4.4 billion HUF (over $16 million or 14 million euros) the current list of headliners to participate at this year's edition might not be as great as expected, the festival's organizers announced in a press conference today. Last year the festival's date was pushed back to avoid overlapping with major US and Japanese festivals. This year the above mentioned events will start later as well. This means that the organizers of Sziget might again be in trouble. Still, according to lead organizer Gerendai Károly, the interest in the festival is unbroken after

Self Confirmed: Wailing Trees – August 13th @ Sziget

Wailing Trees

Another band has confirmed that it will participate at the 2015 Sziget Festival: this time it's the French roots reggae band Wailing Trees. According to the band's Facebook page, Wailing Trees will play at the Sziget Festival on the 13th of August.

The band plays a mixture of several styles - reggae with a dash

Sziget 2015

The Sziget Festival Republic (getting used to this name is still strange) has returned with announcements to warm our hearts: a list of formations added to the lineup of the Sziget 2015. The short list can be found here, but let's see some of them in a bit more detail. Foals is returning to Hungary after a visit at the VOLT last year. The Oxford band - with a style that mixes indie, math rock and dance - has three studio albums, with a fourth being in the works. Maybe we can hear some of their new creations this year at the Sziget 2015 Festival. The

UPDATE: The booklet can be downloaded as a pdf file, (right-click here, Save target as...) - thanks mellowmaniac! It's in Hungarian, but you'll get the schedule... Some cool news on the Sziget Espana Official Facebook page. Actually, it’s not really news, it’s rather more stuff to make our waiting even more difficult in the next few days. The Sziget booklet, that thing you use to see where on the island you’re headed next, is already printed. As always you’ll be able to get yours on the island. They’re even posting a picture of it, which you can see below. Also, don’t forget to vote in the

No Flying Lotus at Sziget 2012

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!)

A new venue + news for those going to Sziget alone

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 confirmed for Sziget 2012

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)
