As some of you may have already read, Bjork has cancelled her gig at Balaton Sound, forced by vocal cord problems. Doctors have found a polyp affecting her vocal cords, and told her to rest until she is fully recovered. August dates in Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki seem to be still on, according to her Facebook page. Maybe she makes up for it by playing Sziget?
Another interesting name for this year's Sziget Festival, that we know about from our friend Mellowmaniac. Easy Star All-Stars, a very interesting New York-based reggae band, is set to play Sziget Festival 2010, according to their agency's website and MySpace page. Easy Star All-Stars usually do cover albums in a reggae / dub style. Their Pink Floyd cover album is probably their most famous work to date. According to their agency, they will play Sziget Festival 2010 on August 11.
Great news tonight for all of you Sziget goers! Another big name is self-confirmed for this year's Sziget Festival. Bad Religion have just self-confirmed themselves in a note, signed by Jay [Bentley], on their official Facebook page that lists their newest added tour dates. According to this note, Bad Religion are set to play Sziget Festival 2010 on August 11. (thanks go to Jos S) 1141
