Alt-J @ Sziget 2017

Less than 24 hours before Sziget 2017's official announcement, one of the performers to participate was revealed: Alt-J will take the stage on the 15th of August 2017. The date (no time slot for now) appeared at the band's agent's website and spotted by a SzigetNews reader. Alt-J was also confirmed earlier to perform at Electric Castle 2017. Alt-J is a Leeds (UK) based indie rock band, turning 10 years old this year.

Schedule posted on the official Sziget website

The official Sziget website has posted the (almost full) schedule for this year's Sziget 2011. We don't have to speculate anymore, because everything is confirmed. You can check it out here and we have updated our line up page accordingly. What must be mentioned is that Saturday, August 13, still doesn't have a headliner, we're certain it's worth the wait. Another observation is that Tankcsapda has gone missing from the Rock / Metal Stage, and this stage seems that it will have another two co-headliners announced (19:00 slot on Saturday August 13 and 20:30 slot on Sunday August 14).  

Two more acts for Sziget 2011

The Sziget 2011 line up got richer by two acts today, when the official Facebook page for UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Norway and Sweden has announced Dutch hip hop and R&B group De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig, as well as  DeWolff, a cool Dutch rock band. The names were also announced on RockBlog (Dutch) (Thanks go to geek and Zmeer)    

Three more interesting acts self-confirmed!

Good news today. Three more interesting acts have confirmed themselves for Sziget Festival 2011. First of all, we're talking about Great Imitation (we got an e-mail from their bass player, saying that they've won the Surface Unsigned competition in the UK). They are fully confirmed, but are still waiting for the date when they will be playing Sziget Festival 2011. The Sziget appearance is also mentioned on their MySpace. As for their style, they are "a mash up of a lot of different styles - mainly indie/pop/hip hop and spoken word." Check them out on their MySpace, especially since they have
