Unfortunately, some bad news today, straight from the organizers. As written on the szigetfestival Facebook account, Modeselektor will not be playing Sziget Festival 2012 after all. The reason is that they have another show in Budapest later this year, and they claimed the exclusivity of the other show when they decided to cancel Sziget, despite the fact that the organizers have tried to find a solution with their agency. A replacement act will be found. They definitely are out of our lineup page already. (thanks, beansel)
