  1. Iggy Pop in 2008 was co-co-headliner. I think, there’s no chance that he will be headliner

  2. If SOAD or NIN were announced I would be amazed (and extremely happy)! More likely to be Rihanna though the way things are going.

  3. SOAD are extremely unlikely – there just isn’t room on their schedule! After yesterday’s announcement, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Editors and Dizzee Rascal as 2 of the headliners, with something safe and not too expensive as the final choice – Franz Ferdinand, or Florence & The Machine maybe …..

  4. Might be the only one, but Earth Wind & Fire are touring and if they come to Sziget I would be filled with joy.

  5. My guess similar to Crazyfrog

    Bjork (Seems to fit the ART theme of the festival)
    Flerence & the Machine
    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds

    Personally I would prefer NIN or Craftwerk to Franz Ferdinand, Jamiroquai or Florence but I guess it is whoever is cheapest!

    Theshipscat may have a point: I would also not be suprised if Dizzee Rascal is announced as a headliner

    I hear The Rolling Stones are doing festivals this year:)

  6. Only 1 of these names is the one i want to see @ sziget
    and that is eminem =) last year snoop dog and this year eminem
    it would be amazing (a)

  7. Neil Diamond???? Mind you, the way things are going, nothing would surprise me! 😉

  8. Nine Inch Nails, The Kooks and Franz Ferdinand will be headliners, I think.
    You can add The Kooks in the speculation list.

  9. I don’t care for Eminem or Biffy Clyro, but the rest would all be great though I’ve seen 7 of them and I’ll see the remaining one in July.

    I remember driving home totally fucked up after 8 days of Sziget and a friend put in a CD, while we were driving through the city. It was KOL’s Because of the times (the first song was Knocked up) and it was surreal.

    My still unseen bands wishlist includes Suede, Foals, Damien Rice, Lykke Li, The Black Keys, Bat for Lashes, Jack White, Pearl Jam, Lana Del Rey, Alabama Shakes.

  10. Florence is performing in Poland on August 9th, Sziget is very probable then. She is really great live!

  11. Mumford and Sons seems unlikely to me because they’re performing in Canada in the first weekend of August as well as later on in August.

  12. SLAYER play :
    August 7th Stockholm Gröna Lund Festival Sweden
    August 9th Oulu Jalometalli Festival Finland
    August 10th Oslo Oya Festivalen Norway
    August 11th Derbyshire Bloodstock Open Air UK

    it is impossible that SLAYER plays again at Sziget


  13. Dates System of a Down:
    August 7, Anapa, Russia
    August 9, Gavle, Sweden
    August 11, Mikkeli, Finland
    August 13, Lodz, Poland
    August 14, Prague, Czech Republic

  14. looks like knife party are out of the running –
    just announced for volt 🙁

  15. Besides NIN, it would be great to see Atoms for Peace in Sziget, but I think they already announced all the European dates (including a nearby place in Slovakia).

    The Black Keys would be amazing too. Will they be in Europe this summer?

    The Daft Punk comment: wow, interesting. 🙂

  16. I returned 🙂

    Tomorrow comes 22 new names!!!

    One of them is on the list. 🙂

  17. Nine Inch Nails will definitelly not play Sziget, we can take them down from the speculation list. None of the following bands will play:
    “San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival has announced its 2013 lineup. The fest, which takes place from August 9 to 11 in Golden Gate Park, will feature Paul McCartney, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, D’Angelo, the National, Grizzly Bear, A-Trak, Jessie Ware, Foals, Yeasayer, Youth Lagoon, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Wavves, the Men, Smith Westerns, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, Jurassic 5, Band of Horses, Willie Nelson, Matt & Kim, Surfer Blood, King Tuff, MS MR, and a whole bunch more.”
