A quick piece of information from the official Placebo site. Placebo is set to play Sziget Festival 2012 on August 8. Placebo were officially announced playing Sziget 2012 today.

Placebo, Hurts, The Horrors & more announced!

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

Another Sziget 2012 lineup announcement tomorrow

A very interesting hint (thanks for siganlling it, mellowmaniac) on the Sziget Germany Facebook page. It says: Da ist was im Busch, morgen gibt's Bestätigungen! Which, roughly translated, means that there's something cooking tomorrow. This means a lineup announcement (probably Placebo, as we told you a few days ago), but could Bush also be a possibility?  (that seems like a reference, but we'll see tomorrow). What's certain is that they're ending their US and Canada tour at the end of June. They've released a new album a few months ago, after all...

Placebo are the second Sziget 2012 headliner!

UPDATE: this image is on the Placebo official website, so this comes as even more confirmation. After The Stone Roses, announced officially a while ago, it would seem that we’ll officially have the next Sziget 2012 headliner on Monday. And it’s Placebo, a band that last played Sziget in 2009. The band has announced on their official site that they would announce festival dates for this summer on Monday, the 23rd of January, but according to, that have uncovered the info on the offficial Placebo site, Sziget is among those dates. We still have to wait for Monday morning for the final confirmation.  

Placebo, The Prodigy, Armin van Buuren and more @ Sziget 2009

The Party Arena will be very animated this year, too, as Armin van Buuren will be making you all dance. Pendulum (that Szigetnews told you about first) are also 100% confirmed, so is DJ Norman Cook, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim. The
