Who would you like to see at Sziget Festival 2009?

Szigetnews reader Kevin had quite an interesting proposal, in order to make the organizers more aware of what the people that go to Sziget every year want. Here’s what he suggested:

Let’s do a little survey. Everyone give 3 names that you want to see at sziget the most (and that are possible at sziget dates). I’ll start. My first name is Metallica, I know that they said that their European tour is over before Sziget but they don’t have any plans for that time so I still have some hope.
My second name is Limp Bizkit- I don’t know why, I just love them! and they are playing in Europe in July.. So maybe.
the third name is Arctic Monkeys. I know them for just a month and I just love them.
Let’s start making some pressure and make sure they know that the current line-up is just not good enough.


What do you guys think? And what are your three names?

  1. What´s that ?
    It isn´t worth to vote for my bands, because you want realistic acts, and limp bizkit is definitley not realistic.

  2. Of course you can do that. This was just a proposal our reader made and who knows, it might help.

  3. Well, Limp Bizkit is confirmed for Volt, so it’s very unlinkely that they will do Sziget, too.

  4. is it possible that rage against the machine will come? cause if it is they are my first choise=]
    ill go crazy if they will come..

  5. The Kooks, they haven’t posted any concerts for August so they should be able to come, The Hoosiers (couldn’t find any 2009 tour dates for them so they’re probably not busy..) and Vampire Weekend, they’re playing in Ibiza on the 18th (August) but they’re free before that

    Ok so that’s A LOT of hoping but I’ve booked my flights to Budapest already! Come on Sziget – Impress me!!!

  7. well now I’m so sad about the Arctic Monkeys… I can’t believe it 🙁 I think I’m going to Vienna then… how will I manage it I don’t know 😀
    But I still have hope for names… like THE VIEW, maybe FRIENDLY FIRES, and VAMPIRE WEEKEND… (3)
    these are probably more possible than MGMT or the Wombats again.

  8. Dora, what do you mean you’re “so sad about the Arctic Monkeys”? Are they not available then?
