Boy, do we have great news for you today! The official Hungarian Sziget site has confirmed quite a few important acts for this year’s Sziget Festival. Here we go, then. First of all, The Prodigy will present their new album, “Invaders Must Die”, at this year’s Sziget Festival. So will Placebo, you’ll get to hear “The Battle For The Sun” first hand.
The Party Arena will be very animated this year, too, as Armin van Buuren will be making you all dance. Pendulum (that Szigetnews told you about first) are also 100% confirmed, so is DJ Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim.
The list of big names doesn’t stop here. The Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club will also be at Sziget Festival 2009.
But that’s not at all everything. There are more official names for this year’ Sziget, all announced at once. First, there’s Tankcsapda – the legendary Hungarian band will celebrate its 20th birthday on the “minus-1” day of the Sziget Festival.
Then we have the very much-requested Ska-P, but also Bloc Party and the Ting Tings. They will be joined by Calexico,Â So Kalmery, 08001, Figli di Madre Ignota and Tiken Jah Fakoly (that we already told you about).
We’ve linked each name with their official site, to make it easier for you to check out the artists you don’t already know.
P.S.: with all the excitement, we forgot to list The Klaxons. They’re also confirmed for this year’s Sziget Festival.
