Dutch site Rock Blog says that the Sziget 2009 Zero Day, the Rock Against Racism Day, will haveÂ some international acts, too, in addition to the local acts that will most certainly be present. More so, the official French Facebook site lists the question "Prognostics pour la tÃªte d'affiche du Day Zero (11 aoÃ»t) ?", meaning "any
Just when we thought "announcement day" was over, another important name has popped up on the official Sziget Facebook page. Lily Allen will be at this year's Sziget Festival according to the new poster on the Facebook site, that you can check out below.(thanks, tool!) If you want to take a look at the other very interesting names that were confirmed today (including Faith No More, one of the most wanted bands for this year' s Sziget Festival, according to you guys), please take a look here.
