Tricky, Crystal Method & more at Sziget 2009

It seems like today is one of those days in which announcements keep on coming. And we couldn’t be happier. The official Sziget Facebook site lists a whole bunch of new names. And there are quite a few interesting ones, that will certainly make you happy, as there is something to every taste.

Here we go, then.First, there is Tricky, then The Crystal Method and the Editors, as well as mr. Paul Oakenfold himself. Then, we have The Subways and Eric Prydz.

As always, we’ve posted links to the official sites, so that you can check out the bands easily.

What do you think about that? How about the line-up so far? Who else would you like at Sziget Festival this year?

  1. As I just wrote in the german forum I have the feeling that the organizers might save on the really big and expensive names and instead put the money in many more medium sized bands, so that we get a lot more international bands as we are used to. I guess that a lot more international bands will be anounced…

    I personally have the feeling that this year’s Sziget could get the best lineup of the last years!

    I’m more that happy with the lineup so far and most of my realistic wishes became true.

    Bands which would rise my exitement are still:

    – Kasabian
    – Grace Jones
    – Doves
    – Heartbreak
    – Friendly Fires
    – Faith No More
    – Arctic Monkey
    – The Enemy
    – The Gossip
    – The Pixies
    – Opeth
    – Porcupine Tree
    – Jesus Lizard
    – The Dead Weather
    – Heaven ‘n’ Hell

  2. My heart will explode of happiness when Faith No More will come.

    Anyway, Editors make me happy.

  3. soulwax or 2 many djs have to come 🙂
    okenfold and the editors makes me very happy.
    keep on 🙂

  4. Who else would you like at Sziget Festival this year?

    Radiohead, Artic Monkeys and it will be perfect!

  5. How about Pet Shop Boys? The’re gonna tour this summer also on festivals… I’d really love to see them on Sziget!!

  6. my perfect sziget: motorhead, cesaria evora, fleet foxes, dave matthews’ band, eddie vedder

  7. Yeah, Tricky!

    Sure hope Oakenfold Prydz and Armin van Buuren aren’t the “big names” for the Party Arena though, that would really suck balls…

  8. That would really be great. Let’s see if it works out. Pearl Jam does sound like a “Sziget-type” act.

  9. But Digitalism aren’t confirmed? Arctic Monkeys and Soulwax for the best festival ever…

  10. Pearl Jam are doing the following:

    Date – City – Venue
    13 Aug – Rotterdam – Ahoy*
    15 Aug – Berlin – Wulheide**
    17 Aug – Manchester – MEN Arena***
    18 Aug – London – 02 Arena***

  11. Oh – I heard they are going to do five european shows… So still a slim chance for a day zero performance at Sziget! 😉

  12. Pearl Jam might be possible. But Kings of Leon are in America and Canada during that time, so it sounds a bit implausible.

  13. Kings of leon will certainly not come. Look at their scedule: they gave a concert on the 9th&12th, they cannot come over between the two. It would be far too expensive for them.

    Arctic Monkeys could still come on the first day, but the chance is fading away…

    I think sziget will not announce any more bands before the 1st of May.

  14. Green Day will be on tour in USA in August. They’ll be in Europe in October and November…

    Rancid will tour with Rise Against in USA in June and July. No Announcement of european dates yet.
