We all already know that Finnish band Children of Bodom will play the Rock Stage at Sziget this year. What we didn't know was the date when they would do it. A post on their MySpace blog clears that up, too. Children of Bodom will play Sziget Festival 2010 on August 11. A very full metal day it is, since we'll get to see Children of Bodom, as well as Ill Nino, according to current info. (thanks, Anthony)
No new acts this time, just a date that also goes into our lineup page. Kamelot will play Sziget Festival 2010 on August 14 according to their official website. Most certainly at the Rock Stage.
Even more good news for metal fans. It seems that the metal announcements were saved for last, let's hope they keep coming. Turisas, the Finnish Viking Metal Band, an interesting act indeed, are confirmed on their website for this year's Sziget Festival.They will be at Sziget on Saturday, August 15, according to their official site (thanks, Mellowmaniac & chudo_pahan).
Finally, some good news for all the metalheads coming to Sziget, after GWAR's cancellation, that probably sadened quite a few people. The official Hungarian site lists Satyricon, the legendary Norwegian Black Metal band, that will come to raise hell at this year's Sziget Rock Stage.
Another day, another confirmation. Revelstone, a very interesting band with its HQ in Pecs, Hungary, will play the Rock Stage. They are quite a multicultural act, since the lead singer is Canadian, the guitar and bass players are Norwegians, the drummer comes from Israel, the trumpet player from Germany, the violinist from the United States and the female vocals are from Sweden. The date is confirmed on their official MySpace, where you can find more information about them.
The official Hungarian site lists a new stage for this year's stage, that looks like a follow-up to the now gone Hammer World - The Rock Stage. This is where metal, punk, hard core, pop-rock, hard rock, blues and indie rock acts will play and among the acts listed for the new Rock Stage are Expatriate, Donots, GWAR, Turbonegro, Life of Agony, Brujeria and Backyard Babies.
