Sziget 2012 is now history. It was an edition that turned out pretty good, especially since, as our lineup poll said, too, the lineup wasn't to everyone's expectations. As always, the last day had something sad in it, but that didn't mean there weren't some great performances. Everybody had tons of fun with bands like Mando Diao and The Killers - on the Main Stage, Goran Bregovic and his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, Fanfara Ciocarlia, Leningrad or Rotfront on the World Music Stage, or Karen Caroll at the Blues Pub. Not to mention Amon Amarth and Magnetic Man at the Arena. Another Sziget wraps up,
More interesting schedule news. Mando Diao will play Sziget 2012 on August 12, according to their official site (thanks, mellowmaniac) As always, all of the schedule info is posted in our Sziget 2012 line up page.
The first big Sziget 2012 lineup announcement is here, as promised yesterday. And just as we told you a few days ago, it starts with Placebo. Then, we have Hurts (pictured below), back after their performance at Sziget 2011, The Horrors, and The Subways (back, just like Placebo, after performing at Sziget in 2009). Joining the Sziget 2012 lineup will be Crystal Fighters, Mando Diao, Noah & The Whale, and Friendly Fires. In the official announcement, Karoly Gerendai, Sziget’s main organizer, says that “there’s a lot more to come.” There's also a trailer for the lineup so far. Watch it in the rest of this
