Some good news and some bad news on the rock and metal front for Sziget 2014, coming from our friend jason. Jason has asked the organizers some questions on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook page about the metal stage (and the idea of having one). His full inquiry was:
During last years Q & A session someone asked why there would not be a metal stage at 2013 Sziget, the reply was:- “Sziget Festival Official: We wanted to organize a seperate Metal Stage, but we could not collect a full program for that. So we did not want to have a bad program on a Metal Stage. But we will try it next year again. July 23, 2013 at 6:43pm” My question is how is the metal stage shaping up this year? Please have the decency to reply
He got a reply after a while. The reply says that:
There won’t be a seperate metal stage this year.
Besides the already announced names the plan is to put some more quality rock/metal acts on our bigger stages. Our program department is still working on that, we hope to have some good news soon.
So the bad news (which we all suspected) is that there will be no metal stage this year, either. The good news is that there might be some interesting rock and metal acts on other stages, which we should hear about soon enough. We’re looking forward to finding out what those acts will be. (thanks, jason!)
