A great day 4 at Sziget 2012, with performances by the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Sum 41 and Snoop Dogg at the Main Stage. Those choosing to go to the World Music Stage had a night to remember, with The Pogues playing an incredible set there. It was all tons of fun on the island, even if the weather was colder than everybody is used to during Sziget Festival. Cold's probably better than way too hot, isn't it? Either way, today is the last day. After today, Sziget Festival 2012 wraps things up and we all go home, waiting for next year. So, we
August 10 was a full day at Sziget 2012, with performances by acts such as The XX and The Stone Roses on the Sziget main stage. The A38 had a lot to offer, too. Those that decided to go there could see Agnes Obel playing a superb show, as well as move along with Bebel Gilberto and her band. We also got to the Giant Street Theatre, were Compagnie Pipotal was doing its usual performance of their show Basculoscopia.

In case you missed the first "real" day of Sziget 2012, you should know that there were quite a few things to see, starting with the incredible Amsterdam Klezmer Band at the OTP World Music Party Stage, or Anna Calvi, dEUS and Ministry at the A38.

How's your Sziget 2012? Has it started already or are you just joining the party today? Metal Day was tons of fun, as proved by the thousands of people banging their heads with acts such as Lacuna Coil, Hammerfall, Dimmu Borgir or Moonspell. We've also seen a great Polish band called Ocean at the Open Stage. They have some really good tracks and have put on a very good show. You can check out their songs here on their website. Now, without further ado, some pictures from Day Zero. Most of them were taken at the Metal festival. On the other hand, for those of
