Sziget 2013 line up speculations round one

The same Fesztivalok Varosa that have found the latest batch of acts before they were officially announced also has a list of speculations for the Sziget 2013 line up, based on bands touring Europe and the area at the time of Sziget Festival 2013.

How about we all give it a look and speculate around it even more, like we do every year? Some of these acts are, we think, very possible additions to the Sziget 2013 line up.

Here it is, including the Sziget News readers’ input (so keep coming back,as the list gets modified every half an hour or so). Do you think there’s anything to add to it? Say it, along with your reasons, in a comment.

  1. @Crazyfrog: Do any of them have dates in August in Europe? We only found a lot of March dates for Paul Kalkbrenner and some for Phoenix in June. Or is it just wishful thinking?

  2. You can cross Bowie off the list because he said he was never going to tour again.

    If they get Suede, I don’t need anything else.

  3. Billy Talent? Their show in budapest (in A38) for this spring got canceled. Only show announced for june so far. But who knows, mabye they will come to Sziget.

  4. After some research on lowlands romours.
    Daft punk, comes with a new cd. Probably will tour this summer.
    Axwell, Amrin van Buuren, Steve Aoki, wildstylz are in europe.
    The Knife has announced to tour festivals this summer.

  5. Of monsters and men
    08-08 Oya festival Norway
    08-08/10-08 Way out festival Sweden
    15-08 Frequency festival Austria

  6. @Christina: Muse has already played Budapest on this tour, so it’s very implausible. Billy Talent, who knows, but they don’t have shows in Europe at that time (not yet, at least).

  7. Muse is playing at the Summer Sonic festival in Japan at the time of Sziget, just like Metallica, Linkin Park, The Stone Roses, Pet Shop Boys, Jake Bugg, Earth, Wind & Fire, Cindy Lauper and Peace.

    Steve Aoki, wasn’t he confirmed for Balaton Sound already? That makes him quite unlikely too.

  8. Steve Aoki and Bloody Beetroots are confirmed for balaton sound; organizers have always said that if a band plays in one of these festivals (sziget and balaton sound) doesn’t plays in the other the same year

  9. Arctic Monkeys, Iron Maiden, Maroon 5 and Volbeat don’t have tour dates in Europe in August on their websites.

  10. the maccabees (along with many others) will play at arenal sound festival in spain early august and some acts (two door cc, ting tings, crystal fighters) performed both festivals last year…maybe totally enormous extinc dinosaurs? he plays at two european festivals in august so far.

  11. @stella: Indeed, The Drums, The Fratellis, White Lies and many others can be added to the speculations!

  12. Alt-J is touring europe and the only date in august for now is 23 of august Reading/Leeds festival. Same story for Sub Focus

    Andy C, Wax Tailor, Amon Tobin, Skindred, Smashing pumpkins all in Juli at Dour festival and haven’t got anything planned during sziget. Except for Skindred Aug 06 Kubana Anapa, Russia, but it’s still possible.

    Disclosure Rock werchter / Heineken Open’er Festival juli

    I’ve heard that Sluwe Vos is likely to perform at sziget and in the dutch party train. I really hope this is the case he’s absolutely fantastic slapfunk house dj!

  13. Usually there are many samne bands wiht the frequency festival in austria…..look at their lineup, there will be for sure many bands from their lineup playing at the sziget to, like SOAD i hope 😀

  14. Knife Party will play at Tomorrowland on 27-07. It may not be in August, but the date is closer to Sziget than the dates in the end of August (Reading and Leeds).

  15. Wu Tang Clan is a major target for Balaton Sound, but it’s not 100% they will appear there. Another news regarding VOLT that Billy Talent’s management still negotiating with the Hungarian organizers.
    Slayer will play Hegyalja festival.

  16. I see Parov Stelar Band is also playing at Volt festival? Maybe, there is a tiny little chance, that QOTSA wil come to Sziget aswell 🙂

  17. Biffy are headlining Reading / Leeds this year I am led to believe. Also have dates in July in Bilbao and Lisbon.

  18. Green Day – European Tour (Italy, Serbia And Montenegro, Austria, Germany, UK, Poland, Russia, Spain… every country in Europe except Hungary)

  19. Slayer, Bullet For My Valentine, Alabama Shakes, The Menzingers, The Lumineers got confirmed for Lowlands festival (16-18 august) in Holland.

  20. Would take Biffy, Bullet My Valentine & Knife Party … Slayer too if they hadn’t been ruled out earlier 🙁

  21. @Szigetnews you can also add Sigur Ros. They’re in Italy at the end of July and in England at the end of August.

  22. 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

    SLAYER can not play Sziget festival

  23. BFMV also confirmed for Anapa, Russia on Aug 4th.
    + Guano Apes there Aug 3rg and SOAD / Skillet Aug 7th

  24. It’s a long shot because these bands are not playing near Sziget and around that time, but there’s still hope, because they have gigs in Europe:
    July – Depeche Mode, Damien Rice, dEUS, Bush, Efterklang, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Hives, Iggy & The Stooges, Sting, Bloc Party
    September – Franz Ferdinand

  25. @adam clark: The second round was announced 20th of February 2012, and the first round was announced 24th of January 2012. So, next announcement for this year will probably take two weeks or more.

  26. Alesso, Axwell, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and Wildstylez confirmed for tommorowland 2013 26-28 july 😉

  27. In that case the other acts performing at Summer Sonic can be added to the speculations list too?

    Metallica, Muse, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, Cindy Lauper, Jake Bugg, Kodaline, Palma Violets, Peace, The Stone Roses, Pet Shop Boys

    I think they’re all very unlikely, although of course I hope some of them will come to Sziget.

  28. @Hungry: not if they’re not at all in Europe. Metallica, L

    Pet Shop Boys are free on part of the Sziget days, but, like The Stone Roses, have no other tour dates in July or August, the same for Peace, Kodaline, Cyndi Lauper, Earth, Wind & Fire and Linkin Park.
    Muse probably won’t play Hungary twice in a year.
    Palma Violets could be possible, which is why we added them.

  29. Boardmasters 2013 7/11 August : Ben Howard, The Vaccines, Basement Jaxx, Everything Everything

    Standon Calling 2013 2/4 August:De La Soul

    Hevy Music Festival 2013 2/4 August: Black Flag

  30. A few more of the bands playing at Brutal Assault – Czech Rep
    Aug 07-10;
    Opeth, Meshuggah, Carcass, Amorphis, Overkill, Atari Teenage Riot, Whitechapel, Entombed, Ihshan, D.R.I., Madball, Downset …

  31. @adam clark: with no Metal Stage, it’s probably safe to guess that there will be a metal day again. And it probably won’t go into the extremes too much.
    @Tom: we won’t add them until they have some confirmed tour dates during that period.

  32. T in the Park (July 12-14, so within a month of Sziget) has:

    Mumford & Sons
    The Killers
    The Script
    Emeli Sande
    Two Door Cinema Club
    Jake Bugg
    Paloma Faith

  33. According to their website, System of a Down has gigs in Russia on Wed Aug 7th and in Sweden in Fri Aug 9th. Finnish rock festival Jurassic Rock ( only in Finnish, sorry) has also announced that SOAD is playing on that festival on Sun Aug 11th.

    Based on that information, it seems to me that it is implausible that they would be in Sziget during the same week.

  34. @ Sziget News

    “it’s probably safe to guess that there will be a metal day again”

    How safe? You sound pretty confident. The idea of a separate day is wrong in principle to many festival goers. The festival should be about integrating the various styles and genres of music throughout the festival proper.

    The idea of segregating metal, and offering a late card on a seperate day was a bad move last year and shouldn’t be endorsed this year.

  35. sziget organizers would be damn stupid if they don’t book soad.. everybody is calling for them and they’re alredy in east europe in august! no i think sziget will book them otherwise it will be one of the biggest mistake ever!

  36. SOAD are now apparently booked for 7th, 9th & 11th August, which still leaves 8th & 10th free. Will be gutted if they’re not booked!

  37. August 7, 2013 Anapa, Russia Kubana Festival
    August 9, 2013 Gavle, Sweden Getaway Rock Festival
    August 11, 2013 Mikkeli, Jurassic Rock Festival, Finland
    August 13, 2013 Lodz, Poland Atlas Arena
    August 14, 2013 Prague, Czech Republic Aerodrome Festival
    August 16, 2013 St. Polten, Austria Frequency Festival

    Very difficult they come. 🙁

  38. As I said before, that still leaves 8th & 10th free, with the 8th being most probable, I suppose, when you look at the locations they’ll be in. I reckon, whatever happens, it might be worth a detour over to Prague for 14th.

  39. Yes please to Toots, The Selector & Lee ‘Scratch’! 🙂 Not familiar with the other Boomtown names….

  40. Arctic Monkeys
    Kings of Leon
    The Vaccines
    The Horrors
    White Lies
    The Strokes
    Jake Bugg
    The Drums
    The Klaxons
    Foster The People
    Arcade Fire
    Modest Mouse

  41. Prince, Kings Of Leon, Mew, Alabama Shakes, Kashmir, Avicii and Beth Hart are added voor Smukfest @ Denmark (august 7-11) So maybe some of them will play @ Sziget?

  42. Yeah, I’m not that bothered about the Kings of Leon, but it’s getting increasingly likely that they’ll get announced.

    And, on the subject of announcements, isn’t it time that another headliner was announced? This time last year, we already had 2 headliners – Placebo and Stone Roses.

  43. James Blake is playing Oya Festival, Oslo and Way Out West, Gothenburg. Could be a safe bet (new album will be fire. Maybe Kendrick Lamar, hopefully the Lumineers, Moderat (?). Am dearly hoping John Talabot, Four Tet, C2C, Todd Terje, Henrick Schwarz, and Julio Bashmore would be a magical set of electronic additions. So we gotta wait until March for the first announcement? Would be hoping its somewhat earlier

  44. I heard a Dutch radio DJ talking about Gorillaz @ Sziget 2013! I know it’s not a real rumor that you can add but i thought it is worth sharing! That would be awesome in my opinion 🙂

  45. Sting is playing in Belgium @ Suikerrock. This one day festival is on july 27. So i guess Sting can be added to the rumours?

  46. What about Atoms for Peace, they’ll be on Pohoda festival which is smaller venue and it’s quite close to Sziget. (but I think it’s in July) but anyway it would be nice to have Tom Yorke and Flea on Sziget!!!

  47. Tenacious D, Imagine Dragons, Awolnation, Kodaline, Jonathan Jeremiah and more for announced for Frequency! (Aug 15-17 Austria)

  48. Editors at arenal sound and at some german festival, time for sziget between them. Cross fingers

  49. My final bet:

    – Blur (already announced)
    – Iron Maiden
    – Jamiroquai
    – Arctic Monkeys
    – Eminem

    Co headliners:
    – Editors (already announced)
    – Franz Ferdinand
    – Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
    – Dizee Rascal (already announced)
    – Motorhead

    how does it sound?

  50. Iron Maiden will perform in Budapest in July with Anthrax.
    Venue: Budapest Park (part of Sziget Ltd.)
    There was a tweet yesterday from Anthrax, but now it’s deleted.

    So, it’s safe to say that we won’t see these two bands at Sziget.

  51. Grape festival in Slovakia (around the corner from Budapest) on 9-10 August, has just announced The Drums, The Joy Formidable, Citizens! and The Big Pink.

  52. Sigur Ros on Sziget….. I’d be so very, very happy if that would be true. These guys are brilliant!!!

  53. Second, it may be an international craze, there are many things that I would have done differently from where I am at now.
    Eventually I realized that every time my shield was clash
    of clans hack tool down I was getting cleaned out, and I was losing a LOT of money.
