Faith No More, Manic Street Preachers & more at Sziget 2009

…at least that’s what Hungarian music site says in the article (Hungarian) they published today. Faith No More are listed for the Main Stage, and so are Manic Street Preachers. The article also includes some other new names.

One of these is Maximo Park, that our friend Mellowmaniac predicted a while ago. Then, there’s Chris Corner’s project IAMX, that we also told you about a while ago. Also listed is famous BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong.

And it doesn’t end here. Life of Agony are also listed to play at this year’s Sziget.

And some more good news, from the release on the Hungarian site. Primal Scream are also listed to play at this year’s Sziget!

UPDATE!!! Our wish (and yours, we’re sure) came true: It’s official! The Sziget official Facebook page lists Faith No More and Manic Street Preachers as confirmed acts!

And yet another UPDATE: the official Sziget Hungarian site also lists these bands, as well as Turbonegro. The rest of the bands have already been mentioned on Szigetnews.

And another UPDATE on this very busy day: La Fura Dels Baus, Nouvelle Vague and Emily Loizeau are also confirmed on the French Sziget site.

  1. From the link above it says:

    Április végéig még el?vételes jegyáron lehet kedvenc fesztiválunkra bérletet venni és érdemes is, hisz a korábban bejelentett nevek mellé a napokban csatlakozott a Faith No More, a Manic Street Preachers, a Primal Scream, Amadou & Mariam, Khaled, a Zamballarna, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold illetve Eric Prydz és persze sokan mások.

    I dont understand hungarian but does that not mean Primal Scream are playing?

  2. You’re right, thanks. The rush of bringing this good news to you kept us from seeing it 🙂

  3. FAITH NO MORE!!!! A dream come true, this immediately makes Sziget the best festival ever, haha. Epic.

  4. Awesome, they haven’t updated the english site yet but i’ll take your word for it, so what’s the full lineup thus far?

    I’m going to see Faith No More twice this summer now 🙂


  5. Some more confirmed bands from the french Sziget site:

    – Nouvelle Vague
    – Emily Loizeau

    AND THE BEST PERFORMANCE GROUP OF ALL TIMES (they alone make it worth to go to Sziget):

    – La Fura Dels Baus

  6. Hmm…Travis appear to have disappeared from all except the page…are they still playing?

  7. As written on the english Sziget site La Fura Dels Baus will perform EVERY night!!!! Yipieh!! (They are for me even more exciting than Faith No More and FNM are one of my top ten rock bands of all times!)

  8. Okay: I admit I get repetitive, but this would make this year’s Sziget perfect for me:

    – Pearl Jam (Day Zero)
    – Deftones
    – Grace Jones
    – Kasabian

  9. if pearl jam will come, it will be amaizing!!
    arctic monkeys are a grat name.
    we still need a 0 day act.
    enything but radiohad!! please. i hate them so much.

  10. Mellowmaniac, I think I should apologise for my previous scepticism, i’m really looking forward to it not like ^_^
