Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club have confirmed their appearance at this year's Sziget Festival on their record company website. They will play Sziget on August 11.(thanks, Mellowmaniac, gurkeyy and alessandro).
We'll be frank with you, we don't know this one for sure, but many people (including Szigetnews reader Adam Peach) seem to be pretty sure of this. Faith No More have announced their reunion and have also mentioned that they will not play any venues in America. They only confirmed a European tour for this summer and said that it will include a few major summer festivals. So we think it's quite possible for them to play Sziget, especially since it wouldn't be a first time. Faith No More have played Sziget Festival before, in 1997. More as we have
According to La Depeche, Les Touffes Kretiennes, the "fuckin' funky brass band", as they call themselves, will play Sziget Festival 2009 as part of their current European tour in support of their first album. The date is not yet confirmed on their official site, but you can visit it to find out more about them.
Even if it's not even remotely Sziget festival season, Metallica have announced a few tour dates recently and tickets are going on sale tomorrow. Still, we found out that you can get them today by clickingÂ hereÂ and we wanted to help you avoid the rush.
