UPDATE: The official Sziget France Facebook also posted the acts for the Gipsy, Meduza, Circus, as well as the Ambient Tent. We've posted it in the Sziget 2011 line up page. A lot of new names have been announced a few minutes ago on the official Hungarian site. Probably the most important are Manic Street Preachers and White Lies (we already told you about the latter a while ago) Let's see all the new names, then. The Main Stage now also features Manic Street Preachers, White Lies, La Roux, Mariachi El Bronx, Batucada Sound Machine and Ben l'Oncle Soul. The World Music Stage will
With all the dates being set on the bands' websites, the first day on the Main Stage is now complete (if no other modifications arise). Here's the schedule, as it looks now (more acts in the line up page). So, here's the schedule for August 10. Pulp Interpol Rise Against The Maccabees Flogging Molly
Another name we already told you about is now official. Ben L'Oncle Soul, already hinted, is now official. A newsletter from the French Sziget page, promoting the early bird ticket prices, lists Ben L'Oncle Soul in the lineup, as seen below.
The Sziget France Twitter and Facebook pages have posted a video of Ben l'Oncle Soul, without any other mentions. Could this mean he will be playing Sziget? Nothing on his official website or MySpace...
Thanks to our reader wim, we now know that DJ Kees van Hondt will be at Sziget 2011. Wim asked on this Kees van Hondt Twitter account whether he would play Sziget again this year, and the administrator asked Kees for him. The answer was that Kees has already booked the tickets and will be at Sziget this year. Here's a video of Kees van Hondt at Sziget last year.
UPDATE: in the meantime, Linkin Park has disappeared, so who knows... Here's another confirmation on what was quite a busy day. Dutch band Go Back To The Zoo is confirmed on the official Dutch page for the Europe Stage. On the other hand, in the good tradition of the Sziget team leaving hints, just like they did with Amy Winehouse, the Sziget France page leaves another interesting one. All of the bands' favourite pages on the Sziget France Facebook page are from bands already confirmed. Except for one - Linkin Park. Might this mean that they are the next important confirmation? Could
Just as expected, the organizers have given us the second big Sziget 2011 line up announcement today. And things are as good as they can be. It looks even more like we're gonna have a brilliant Sziget week this year. Apart from Amy Winehouse and Lostprophets - two acts we told you about, here's what the announcement (and, by consequence, the Sziget 2011 line up) has to offer: Kasabian, The Maccabees and Good Charlotte are coming, and so do Deftones and Within Temptation (returning after an excellent performance a few years ago). Joining will be Kid Cudi, as well as Peter Bjorn
Another interesting one for you guys (thanks to Meh for signalling this). Lostprophets will (almost certainly) play Sziget 2011. Why do we say this? Well, the official Lostprophets Twitter account features a rather interesting update, and we quote: Oh, hello. We've got a bit of news for you tomorrow. Hamarosan találkozunk! In Hungarian, the last phrase means "meet you soon!". This sounds like a very good hint to us, especially since tomorrow is the next big lineup announcement!
