The official Hungarian website has updated the program page and there are some interesting things in it if you look carefully, as well as some new names. Let's start with the new names, shall we? First of all, on the Europe Stage, two new bands have been added: KILLO KILLO Banda and The Broken Beats. KILLO KILLO Banda will play on August 12, while The Broken Beats will play Sziget on August 10. On the A38-Wan2 stage, two new acts have been added: Electrelane (on August 11) and Watchaclan (August 13), both very interesting from what we could hear on their respective sites. Now,
After Leningrad has self-confirmed their Sziget presence, two more names have been announced on the official Sziget Facebook page. First of all, we're talking about British Sea Power, set to play Sziget's Main Stage. Second, La Shica will play the Europe Stage.
According to their website and Facebook page, Leningrad will be playing Sziget Festival 2011. The date posted there is August 9, which would make it a 0-day performance.
According to the Sziget official Facebook profile, Smash Mouth have had to cancel their Sziget 2011 performance, along with their other August dates, citing personal problems. This is what the message says: Unfortunately Smash Mouth has to cancel their performance at Sziget 2011. Due to personal problems, they have to cancel their whole tour in August... Sziget is looking for a replacing act. Let's see who the organizers get instead.
Not much on the news front lately, but that's no reason for us all to not find some useful info. One of our friends was suggesting that people should tell us more about Europe Stage bands from their countries, so we all know what's worth seeing. So, feel free to do it in a comment to this post. What band from your country is playing the Europe Stage (see the line up so far here), what are they playing and why would it be cool for us all to go see them?
Here's a cool page we've stumbled across today. There is an Amazon Sziget Festival 2011 music store, where you can purchase music by the artists playing Sziget 2011. Click the link to check it out! Even if we have no new artist news, feel free to check out the Sziget 2011 lineup page, as it is constantly updated with dates & more.
Austrian band 3 Feet Smaller is the latest confirmation for the Sziget 2011 line up. The band have confirmed their presence via their official site. They will play the Rock Metal Main Stage on August 11. (thanks pepper rabbit!) UPDATE: Hungarian progressive/psychedelic act Sonar is also self-confirmed on their official MySpace.
Some really cool information coming our way today. First of all, metal fans will be happy to hear that the official Szigetfest Twitter account is announcing Helloween for the Metal Stage. The same source also announces Goose, for those wanting to party at Sziget. (UPDATE: Goose will be playing on August 11, according to their Facebook - thanks Eva!) On the other hand, the Sziget France Facebook announces Hudson Mohawke for the A38-Wan2. They're also confirming Goose and Helloween.
Croatian band Overflow will play Sziget's main stage this year, according the Programs page on the English official website. According to their own website, Overflow will play Sziget 2011 on August 13. On that same day, you'll also get to see Amy Winehouse and Smash mouth perform on the main stage, as you can see on the lineup page (thanks go to chudo_pahan)
Some cool new names have been posted on the Sziget Italy official Facebook. First of all, there's Baskerville, returning to Sziget this year. Then, we have Dorian Concept, Hudson Mohawke and Overflow. On the speculation side, our friends still hope for Foo Fighters, since they're on the bill for PukkelPop on August 18. So are Offspring and Eminem...
