The official Sziget Facebook page says that new names are set to be announced tomorrow, which should be pretty great news. On the other hand, Campfire winners will be announced later today, too. We're looking forward to tomorrow's announcement, which should probably include Leningrad, too (which we've known about for a few days now).

They are also hoping for an early announcement, just like all Sziget fans, but they do not know anything about it yet. The first official name for Sziget Festival 2013 should be announced soon.
