The Sziget Campfire stage winners have been announced a little while ago. If you've entered, you can check out the page and see if you've won and if you didn't, you can get an idea about what's worth checking out. In other news, another self-confirmation - Black Sun Empire. The date mentioned on Giga Tools is August 17. (thanks go to SkaPanda!)
The official Sziget Facebook page says that new names are set to be announced tomorrow, which should be pretty great news. On the other hand, Campfire winners will be announced later today, too. We're looking forward to tomorrow's announcement, which should probably include Leningrad, too (which we've known about for a few days now).
Leningrad is another name to confirm its presence at Sziget Festival 2014. Definitely not a secret for constant Sziget-goers, Leningrad have listed a Sziget 2014 date on their official Facebook page. According to the quoted source, Leningrad will be playing Sziget 2014 on August 11. A stage is also mentioned - the World Village Stage. (thanks go to chudo_pahan!)
