Unfortunately, Deadmau5 won't be playing Sziget 2010 anymore. According to a message from the Deadmau5 management, [...] whilst performing onstage at the 9:30 club in Washington DC, deadmau5 collapsed, suffering exhaustion and vomiting. Medics at the venue took him directly to hospital where he is now under supervision deadmau5 is sad to advise his fans that on the strict advice of the doctors, he now has no choice but to cancel the next 9 shows of his Summer tour schedule to allow for his recovery. The dates affected are listed below. Deadmau5 hopes to reschedule appearing in these cities in due course but in the meantime thanks all

It seems that, if you wanted to see Bloc Party and 808 State, you won't be able to. They're both playing at the same time. 808 State is set to play sas the headliner of the Party Arena on August 13 (which means around 19:30), so it's about the same time as Bloc Party.

Good news for all of you planning to go to Sziget and dance all night. Sziget Festival's Spanish site confirms Carl Cox turning the tables at the Party Arena on the 15th. Also mentioned is Kymani Marley, son of reggae legend Bob Marley, who will be playing the festival's World Music Stage.
