The information has just been confirmed on their MySpace page, as well as their official website. Pendulum will play Live at this year's Sziget Festival on August 14. TheyÂ promised to return last year, when they couldn't play Sziget Festival due to unforeseen circumstances. Now their promise has been fulfilled. We hope this news will make all our readers that wanted Pendulum to play Sziget very happy (Laura, thanks for your help).
As it does every year, Sziget always brings interesting jazz surprises. This time we're talking about Yom , the new king of the Klezmer Clarinet, as he proclaims himself, accompanied by his band.In Yom's words, the project is "a tribute to Naftule Brandwein, who was the pioneer of klezmer clarinet in the United States, coming from Poland in the 10's. This crazy genius clarinet player claimed himselfÂ to be the King of klezmer clarinet. To stick to the the spirit of this megalomaniac character, I had to claim myself to be the New King of klezmer clarinet." Megalomaniac as it may
We finally have a bigger name for this year's Sziget Festival to tell you about! We're talking about American melodic hardcore band Rise Against. Rise against will play Sziget Festival this summer, but we don't have a date for their performance yet. The good news is confirmed in a news article on Rise Against's official website.
We have another confirmed act for this year's Sziget Festival. Fanfara lui Craciun, a very interesting brass band coming from Zece Prajini, a Romanian village close to the Moldavian border, is playing Sziget Festival 2009 on August 16 at 4:00 PM, most certainly at the World Music Stage. Their presence at this year's Sziget Festival is officially confirmed on thier MySpace page.
