The French Sziget site and their Facebook lists another interesting act listed to play Sziget Festival this year – Lord Sassafras. He will play the Roma Tent and is an emblematic character that plays a mix of world music, rock and ethno-techno influences, that he calls “Global Style”. More details on his MySpace.
UPDATE: also listed on the French site are Amadou et Mariam, a very interesting duo from Mali, that have been around for more than thirty years. Well worth checking out, this is their website.
Another announced act (on the French site as well), are Woven Hand, a band that features ex-16 Horsepower man David Eugene Edwards. Their official website can be found here.
That’s not all. Hungarian act Muzsikas, “Hungary’s finest folk band”, will also play this year’s Sziget, and so will Muchachito. Even if there is no information for Muchachito, we think they’re talking about Muchachito Bombo Infierno, a band that seems to fit the profile of the festival.
(thanks a lot to Szigetist and Xavier)
