English political rapper Lowkey, that is also known for working with Reverend & The Makers and with the "political indie-supergroup" Mongrel is confirmed on his MySpace to play Sziget's Rock Against Racism Day, as our friend Mellowmaniac tells us. It's still not clear if he'll be a part of the "all-stars" band or if he will play as solo act.
We're all still waiting for the final line-up, but no news yet. The Rock Against Racism Day will provide an interesting act called "Love Music Hate Racism Allstars Special (UK)", which could promise some interesting musicians, as among the supporters of the Rock Against Racism concept are names like Anti-Flag, Babyshambles, Belle & Sebastian, Mylo, Shane McGowan, Lethal Bizzle, Doves, David Gray, Carl Barat, Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, Damon Albarn, Tony Allen, Reverend & The Makers, Jerry Dammers and more. Who knows, maybe some of these artists will be present. (thanks to our buddy Mellowmaniac again).
Three bands are already self-confirmed on their MySpace pages for Day Zero of this year's Sziget Festival. We're talking about two Hungarian acts - Modern Art Orchestra and KLB Trio,Â as well as one American act, from Nashville, Tennessee, Marujah, that doesn't play country music, though. The play quite an interesting mix of Reggae and Rock, that you can hear here.They say they have a "World Sound". (thanks, Mellowmaniac)
