We're back from the fantastic week that Sziget 2010 was, and everything was fabulous, as always. Still under the spell of the exceptional Muse show last night, or the great Iron Maiden performance (even if we got the impression that there were some sound problems there). It's hard to even mention what our highlights were. We loved Monster Magnet, but also Danko Jones. We enjoyed Ska-P's energetic show, but also Chapelier Fou's beautiful music. And we loved the fact that there was something cool to see every time we went by the Blues Stage (including the incredible Hubert Tubbs). We wanna hear

Deadmau5 had to cancel Sziget and a few other shows because he collapsed on stage during a performance. Everybody was curious to see who Sziget will get to play instead of him. Well, the answer is already in the Sziget schedule on the official website. It's Timo Maas. Timo Maas will play Sziget 2010 on August 15, at 01:30.
Quite an interesting press release we received today from the Sziget Office. To anticipate Iron Maiden's performance at Sziget, Derek Riggs, creator of Maiden mascot Eddie, has made a special Sziget drawing for the cover of New Noise magazine. The image features Eddie withe the Hungarian Parliament as a hat, shouting "Sziget". See the large image here. We can't wait for the festival to start, either...
