The organizers have confirmed on the event's official Facebook page: Pink will headline Day -1 of the 25th Anniversary Sziget Festival. At the same time, the event has announced the prices for its day tickets - all of them will cost €65, no matter the date. The next price hike for 7-day and 5-day passes will occur on the 31st of May, so we can expect some further big names to be announced around that date. Pink (often stylized as P!NK) was born Alecia Beth Moore in September 1979. She started writing songs at an early age, then proceeded to perform in

This just in (it has been officially confirmed by the Sziget festival website), and the website of the Hegyalja has confirmed it way before Sziget did: Rudimental will occupy the last free spot on Main Stage in the Sziget 2015 lineup. The official Sziget timetable was updated with a bit of delay - the Kingdom of Hegyalja has today confirmed not just the date and the spot, but also the fact that all tickets for Kingdom of Hegyalja valid for their concert can be exchanged into one-day tickets for the last day of Sziget 2015. The Kingdom was cancelled due to issues related to the
Sziget Festival has just announced the next band to play the Main Stage of the event: Nashville rock band Kings of Leon. "We have been trying to lure the band for years, and now, after a negotiation marathon, we finally did it," Gerendai Károly said, "because - as they are not in Europe at that time and they usually have just a handful of gigs in the summer - we had to get them to fly over the ocean just for us." Judging by the comments at our previous posts, Kings of Leon will be an act that divides: some of our visitors expressed

Sportfreunde Stiller are the last missing act for the Sziget 2012 Main Stage to be confirmed. Their name is listed on the schedule on the official website as playing Friday, August 10:00, at 18:00 hours. And since only one name was missing, that makes the Main Stage lineup complete. Flying Lotus, on the other hand, seem to have went completely out of the picture n(at least for Main Stage), as they’re nowhere in the schedule. (thanks go to mellowmaniac once more)
Hungarian singer-songwriter Akos will be playing Sziget’s Main Stage on Day Zero, according to the official Hungarian Sziget website. The event will be called “Szintirock 2012” and it remains to be seen whether there will be other bands on the other stages or on the Main Stage on Day Zero.
There were quite a few discussions on Sziget News about this topic – whether Korn would headline the Metal Stage or play the Main Stage. There were opinions on both fronts, but now it’s clear. A user has asked the organizers which stage they would play on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook account, and the answer (in Hungarian) was Main Stage, just as you can see below. That answers a question for many people. (thanks, dakota!)
UPDATE: the Sziget France Facebook says that if they get to 17000 fans by tomorrow morning, we're going to get some new names! So get sharing the page!
