New Circus venue at Sziget 2013!

Sziget has always been more than a music festival, and the new venue, announced recently on the official Facebook pages, just comes to prove it.

Sziget 2013 will have a dedicated circus venue, having the feeling of travelling circuses in the 1890s.

What’s even nicer is that afternoons will include interactive programs, where the audience will be able to try some circus instruments.

Evenings will bring programs by Hungarian acrobats Recirquel – they were present at Magic Mirror last year, and the program will be concluded by Swing & Circus, which combines swing, electro-swing and circus.

What do you think? Is it a good idea?

Check out Recirquel in the video below.

  2. Snow says:

    Indeed, its will be interesting ;P

  3. Bender says:

    May be interesting, but were you looking for this or for a new headliner name? I’m very scared about this year…

  4. MJ says:

    @Bender: I think this years lineup is might the best of the past years. I’m really happy with the names that allready are confirmed. And i’m thinking that the remainder names / headliners not be a disappointment. There are enough acts that are touring in Europe at the moment of Sziget

    What is going to be August 5? (Day -1)
    Motörhead was also set on this date…
    Very strange.

  7. Hungry says:

    I think some bands put the starting date of the festival on their website instead of the date they’re on.

  8. Castor says:

    I hope August 5 will be de 1. day, and we could forget -1 and 0. day:D

    Franz Ferdinand
    Kings of Leon
    Iggy Pop
    Florence & the Machine

    Green Day
    Nine Inch Nails

  25. Hungry says:

    The website for UK added David Guetta to the line up for Main Stage

  26. Michael PD says:

    Is David Guetta big enough to headline? I realllllllly hope he isn’t.
