We’ve updated the Sziget 2013 line up page on Sziget News in order to better include all the latest announcements we got. We’ve also added dates where they are already available, but, of course, this is a work in progress. If you stumble across other dates, feel free to tell us and they will be added.
UPDATE: Billy Talent was added to the list, too, so Joel was completely right. UPDATE: Joel says Billy Talent will be announced, too. Let's see if he's right. The VOLT website has announced new acts today. These include Bullet For My Valentine, Hurts, Sven Vath, Dub FX, Parkway Drive, GusGus, Papa Roach, Martin Sollveig, DJ Fresh and Fritz Kalkbrenner.

Thanks to our reader wim, we now know that DJ Kees van Hondt will be at Sziget 2011.

Thanks to our friend Mellowmaniac, we found out that French band The Inspector Cluzo are set to be part of the Sziget Festival 2010 lineup. The band will promote their new album, called "The French Bastards" and what we can hear on their MySpace page makes them quite an interesting act to see live.

What's even nicer is that they will promote their new album, that will be out on April 19th.
