Although we were prepared for a storm, it didn't come early, so PJ Harvey could finish her performance on Sziget's Main Stage without interruption. Today, in turn, there is much more to expect, even though the weather is a bit more chilly than yesterday. Headlining the Main Stage today are The Chainsmokers, preceded by performances by acts like Metronomy, Hurts, and White Lies, who will be streamed live later in the day. The A38 stage will be taken by acts like The Pretty Reckless, The Naked and Famous (who will likely perform fully clothed, though), and Tycho. The Electronic Beats Arena
MTV Live HD will be broadcasting some Sziget Festival 2011 gigs, in case you want to remember the wonderful Sziget mood. Included so far are Sziget Festival performances from White Lies, La Roux, Interpol, as well as Kasabian (pictured). If you are lucky enough to live in a country in which MTV Live HD is available – you can check out the list of countries here – you can enjoy some of last year’s performances again. According to the schedule (PDF file), things will start off this Sunday with White Lies, at 22:00 CET. Also, you will be able to see La Roux (on
Just to remember the fabulous days of Sziget 2011, here's the new video by White Lies, "The Power & The Glory". It was filmed at Sziget 2011 and you will probably feel the urge to play it over and over again. Enjoy!
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
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
Here's some more good lineup news for you guys. Our reader Festivalfreak (we'd like to thank him) had some email conversations with the White Lies manager, and he has received some great news. He asked their management whether White Lies will play Hungary or Slovakia, and he got the answer Yes, White Lies will be at Sziget ...so it's official. White Lies was at Sziget 2009, too.
