The Gaslight Anthem is the latest name to be announced for Sziget 2013, and it has a chance to make quite a number of people happy.

Good news coming from a few of the Sziget Facebook pages – The Gaslight Anthem will be part of the Sziget 2013 line up.

    SOAD is fully out of the picture..

  5. dzsinni says:

    According to several comments on the official FB page and a radio prodcast:

    Looks like System of a Down were going to headline but they cancelled.
    Not so long ago the Hungarian government decided to extradite a convicted and sentenced axe murderer, an Azeri, who had murdered an Armenian citizen in Budapest. After extradition to Azerbaijan, he was promptly pardoned and hailed as a hero. I imagine SOAD didn’t much like the part the Hungarian govt played in this. Sziget must be scrambling for a replacement…”

  6. Lambo says:

    sake, it would have made the lineup a lot more appealing if they were one of the headliners..

  7. S says:

    Where the f**k are the metal names!?

  8. chudo_pahan says:

    I bet that Iggy will play on Sziget this year.
    1. He was on Sziget before.
    2. He will be in Vienna on August 9.

  9. Michael PD says:

    I hope Iggy doesn’t tbh

  10. theshipscat says:

    Um, haven’t we been through this SOAD & the axe murderer story before a couple of months back? SOAD have been ruled out for some time now because there simply isn’t the space in their schedule for them to play Sziget – plus, all of their dates were announced some time ago, so I’d have thought they’d have been announced ages ago if they were going to headline …

  11. S says:

    Actually SOAD have 6, 8 and 10 august free on their tour. Hope they’re announced otherwise it will be a poor lineup! This year all people want SOAD as headliner!! Come on sziget!

  12. Michael PD says:

    They have 6/8/10 free, but 6th is Day 0 and they won’t play 8/10 because they are not likely to play three nights in a row

  13. Lambo says:

    i think if system were booked in already they would have been announced already tbh

  14. Bender says:

    I need some informations. Need some headliners. Need some co-headliners. I’m in NEED.

  15. adam clark says:

    how many more announcements are we likely to have?

  16. Lambo says:

    needs a lot!

  17. Brecht says:

    I think that around 30 names still need to be announced, looking at the slots per stage per day of last year..

  18. Lambo says:

    including 4 headliners, looking at the end of their last youtube video they only have blur in big letters,
    they need to hurry the fuck up though, we had 3 headliners at this point last year

  19. Joep says:

    I’m pretty sure that Biffy and Guetta are headliners too..

  20. Wibble wobble says:

    5th No bands yet announced
    6th Probably Motorhead (Heavy metal day headliner)
    7th No headliner announced
    8th Biffy
    9th Blur
    10th No headliner announced
    11th Guetta

  21. Hungry says:

    End show presented by David Guetta, that can’t mean anything else than Guetta is the headliner for the Sunday. Biffy I think could also be a co-headliner.

    I’m not that much in need for new names as some of you are, but of course more acts are always welcome 🙂 I’ve been going to Sziget for five years and each year I look forward to Sziget a lot, but I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited as this year. The line up already contains more acts I’d like to see than ever before and I’m also very curious about the new beach.

  22. Bender says:

    Biffy and Guetta are headliners. Sziget Italia said that some weeks ago.

  23. Tom says:

    In three month … sziget is over…don’t worry…..beeeeeeeeeeee…….

  24. chudo_pahan says:

    Guys, what do you think about shedule for Main stage?
    Will be Die Arzte a co-headliner?

  25. Hungry says:

    Die Ärzte will be performing in a late-afternoon slot.

  26. Bender says:

    I think Die Ärzte will play at 18.00 and Skunk Anansie will co-headline. Skunk Anansie concert in 2011 was the best of the week!

  27. Lambo says:

    theres a lot of acts id see this year its a great undercard, but ive seen them all before apart from blur, when you consider the strength of some lineups this year download and Reading/Leeds, it kind of makes the lineup look weak, tbh I don’t care too much about the lineup in the day as im always busy having fun and chilling at the reggae stage, but I like a good headliner and dance acts so I can have a party/mosh and a rave til the early hours

  28. Chris says:

    Guess they’ve got some financial problems with the loss of sponsors and the government demanding more money for the use of the island… Still a pretty good lineup, especially the electronic part. And Sziget has never been about big headliners to me anyway 🙂

  29. rolo says:

    AS I wrote like a month ago,no SOAD because of Orbán Vektor,and no more headliners(ex: White Lies has been headliner a couple of years ago)Skunk Anansie and Mika or Editors could be headliner in Sziget..

  30. Bender says:

    Non of them will be headliner. The only headliners are Blur, Biffy Clyro and Guetta. Don’t forget they annouced Prodigy in June in 2011 and Prince even in July!

  31. warre says:

    Editors and Skunk Anansie arent headliners. That was told at their announcement. So i think we can expect some more beautiful names. Anyway, Sziget is always beautiful 🙂

  32. Hungry says:

    @Bender: can you show me where Sziget Italia said that Biffy will be a headliner?

  33. Bender says:

    Can’t find now, but I saw if for sure and the friend that’s with me remembers it as well 🙂

  34. Sieget says:

    I highly doubt biffy to be headlining, maybe guetta. Sure don’t hope so though.

  35. Hungry says:

    I tried to find it too, but couldn’t find it.

  36. Johan says:

    Biffy, Blur and David Guetta are headliners i also read the same about biffy on the dutch page

  37. Lambo says:

    ive not seen it say that biffy was headlineing and theyre in the mix of all the other normal bands on the latest poster in the bottom left corner –>

  38. Lambo says:

    I know biffy are big enough to headline uk festivals but don’t know how big they are in europe

  39. Crazyfrog says:

    why not Fatboy Slim as a headliner??

    he is in Europe and already came to Sziget!

  40. Michael PD says:

    I hope not personally, too n

  41. Michael PD says:

    Too many if that kinda acts so far for my liking

  42. Wibble wobble says:

    Also Smashing Pumkins on the 7th Aug is a possibility

  43. Wibble wobble says:

    Then again you couild go on and on

    Metronomy possible

    The Walkmen as well

    Also My bloody valentine

    Would be happy with all or any of the 4 possibities

  44. Michael PD says:

    I haven’t heard of most of those, but Smashing Pumpkins would be cool

  45. Bender says:

    Smashing Pumpkins and Metronomy would be great!

  46. Steven says:

    Google translate:

    There will be no smoke at festivals – 16/05/2013
    [Listen] Hear
    There will be a festival cigarette outlets, based on currently available information, – said Charles Gerendai the Radio Club. The Sziget Festival is organized but do not know how it will handle the event kiosk located outside the 20-30 thousand people who will want to buy cigarettes.
    The trafiktörvény however, was originally established to protect the young. On the other hand, you can not buy cigarettes at festivals predicts that more young people are now going to buy cigarettes before coming to the festival. However, we will continue to regulate that area of ??the Island Lake Balaton Sound or may not be commercial quantities of goods to enter private person. A large number of foreign visitors in turn should begin to prepare the changed rules. Charles Gerendai that occur to an increase in the black market.
