Exactly 5 years ago today, Sziget News was started. Since then, we’ve had 606 news posts (607 if you include this one) and 5681 comments.

Here's some great news off the Sziget Italia Facebook page. The first name will be announced tomorrow! A competition is in place, letting people guess who that name is, and it ends at 9:30 tomorrow morning. So we're guessing the announcement will be made soon after that time!
