Subscribe, a band many of those going to Sziget on a constant basis already know, is the latest act to self-confirm its presence at Sziget 2014. Subscribe have listed their latest list of tour dates on their official website and Sziget 2014 is among those dates. According to the quoted source, Subscribe will be playing Sziget 2014 on August 14 and 16. Why two dates? Well, the August 14 date is as a Rage Against The Machine cover band (the date was already listed in the lineup). The good news is that they'll be playing as themselves, too, on August 16. (thanks, SkaPanda)
The official announcement has been made and the list starts with Madness (a well-known name to Sziget fans and always a fun show) and The Bloody Beetroots. Triggerfinger are also very familiar faces, and the announcement also contains Leningrad and Black Sun Empire, which you knew about a bit earlier. The full list of this new official announcement is as follows: Madness The Bloody Beetroots Kelis Leningrad Band of Skulls Triggerfinger Deniz Koyu Thomas Gold Quentin Mosimann Black Sun Empire INVSN Extensive comments about it have already been made, but if you haven't already, tell everybody what you think below!
The official Sziget Facebook page says that new names are set to be announced tomorrow, which should be pretty great news. On the other hand, Campfire winners will be announced later today, too. We're looking forward to tomorrow's announcement, which should probably include Leningrad, too (which we've known about for a few days now).
Leningrad is another name to confirm its presence at Sziget Festival 2014. Definitely not a secret for constant Sziget-goers, Leningrad have listed a Sziget 2014 date on their official Facebook page. According to the quoted source, Leningrad will be playing Sziget 2014 on August 11. A stage is also mentioned - the World Village Stage. (thanks go to chudo_pahan!)

Sziget 2014 volunteer is something many of you have wanted to do, if we're to go by the number of emails asking about it. Well, the Sziget 2014 official website lists the conditions and has a form which you can fill if you want to become a Sziget 2014 volunteer. The conditions are pretty basic: if you're over 18 and come from an EU country, you're in with a chance.

Our reader Paul claims to have some news on very credible sources.

According to Paul, Skrillex will play Day -1 (he says this is 90% sure). He also says that Snoop Dogg is 99% sure for Sziget 2014, together with Babyshambles or/and Gogol Bordello - the chances are 95% for that, he claims. He also gives a 70% chance for the Bloody Beetroots and 40% for
