Sziget NL announced several Dutch acts to be added to the Sziget 2016 lineup today. All of them will perform on the Europe Stage. Without further ado, here are the names. Europe Stage John Coffey is a Dutch punk rock/post hardcore band, influenced by bands like Refused, The Ghost of a Thousand or Every Time I Die. The band name was borrowed from the 1999 movie The Green Mile, written by Stephen King and directed by Frank Darabont. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=351cf8os7PQ The band released a new album last year, called The Great News, and a fresh EP, A House for Three, last year.

A very loved venue is back at Sziget 2012, when we all thought it was gone completely. We're talking about the Blues Stage. The German Sziget Facebook page is even giving away the schedule of the Blues Stage for this year. Here it is, but you can always check it out in our Sziget 2012 line up page.

Another interesting self-confirmation: Hungarian band The Silver Shine is set to play Sziget Festival 2012. They will play Sziget 2012 on August 9, and there’s another interesting part here. As our friend Rascal (whom we thank for the tip) says, the post says that they’re playing the Blues Stage, as you can see below. So maybe there will be one? Fact is that The Silver Shine sound quite interesting. You can check them out here.
This year's Sziget Festival will, of course, have a Blues Stage, that will feature mostly Hungarian acts, but also Karen Carroll & The Mississippi Grave Diggers. You'll also get the chance to see a Zappa and a Doors tribute band, both Hungarian. The full schedule of the blues stage for this year's Sziget festival has been published here.(thanks, fromhungary)
