Our friend Mellowmaniac has written an e-mail to the organizers, asking some very important (especially) stage-related questions and he got a reply that answered his inquiry. In case you missed his comment, here's what he found out: 1.) The openair Metalmainstage will be placed where the metal tent was in the last years. The stage will be moved further backwards into the field so that more people will fit in front of the stage. 2.) The Europestage will be placed where last year the Jazzstage has been. 3.) On the Europestage 5 bands will perform each day. 4.) No infos about the jazz program
May you all have a Happy New Year and may all your wishes come true! And if those wishes include your favourite artists in the Sziget 2011 lineup, even better! See you at Sziget 2011!

The announcement that we've all been waiting for is now here. The organizers have posted it on the Official Hungarian site minutes ago and features some very important news. First of all, it's now officially confirmed that Madness will be back on the Sziget Main Stage after their great performance in 2007, like we told you some time ago.

The Party Arena will also feature DJ Shadow (live) and a bunch of new DJs - Boyz Noise, Erol
Dutch band Make Believe will play Sziget 2010. They won a spot because they are 3FM Serious Talent. The information is confirmed on the Make Believe MySpace, where you can also hear their single "From The Start". Make Believe are set to play on August 12.
The site was down for a few hours due to some unforeseen technical circumstances, but now it's back up and we'll try to keep it this way! It was the first time this happened in over two years... We hope you missed us! :)
We decided to go away from the party for a few moments and wish you a very happy 2010, with everything you want and, of course, a very exciting Sziget Festival. Lots of new things happening here these days, as you can all see (we're planning on keeping them coming).
