A great day 4 at Sziget 2012, with performances by the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Sum 41 and Snoop Dogg at the Main Stage. Those choosing to go to the World Music Stage had a night to remember, with The Pogues playing an incredible set there. It was all tons of fun on the island, even if the weather was colder than everybody is used to during Sziget Festival. Cold's probably better than way too hot, isn't it? Either way, today is the last day. After today, Sziget Festival 2012 wraps things up and we all go home, waiting for next year. So, we
We told you about Snoop’s reincarnation into Snoop Lion in the last few days. Still, if you were worried that you won’t be hearing the legendary rapper’s greatest hits on the island, you were wrong. A statement posted on the official Hungarian Sziget site (Google translated version here) comes to clear things up for all of us. The Sziget organizers have talked to Snoop’s representatives, clearing things up completely. According to Snoop’s representatives, the show on the island will be a hits show. (thanks, mellowmaniac!)
We told you a few days ago about one of this year’s Sziget stars - Snoop Dogg’s new single and future album. It was supposed to be released under the pseudonym Snoop Lion and be a reggae album. Well, it would seem that things go much further than just a new reggae album. Snoop Dogg has decided to go all the way, and was christened Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest when going to Jamaica. He has decided to "bury" Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion. We don't know if this is permanent, but we'll all see, won't we? If you don’t believe us,
Snoop Dogg, one of Sziget 2012’s headliners, has released a new single, off his future album, called Reincarnated. Nothing new so far. Except for the fact that the single (called “La La La”) is under the pseudonym Snoop Lion. And there’s more: it’s a reggae song and it’s produced by Major Lazer. It will be interesting to see how this new music will sound on the Sziget 2012 Main Stage. Anyway, you can listen to the new track below and tell everyone what you think.
As always, john doe’s suggestions were right. He suggested Snoop Dogg, and we certainly got him in the new official announcement. He’s joined by Sum 41 and a few other interesting acts. We’re talking about Leftfield, SebastiAn (playing A38), Aly and Fila and Lange ft. Betsie Larkin (for the Arena).
Some interesting news, as well as speculations today – including a Snoop Dogg one. The Sziget Italia Facebook page says that they can’t reveal more, but that just a little more patience is needed (as you can see below). On the other hand, our friend john doe (the guy whose suggestions always tend to confirm), has hinted a few things these days. First, he said +8 :), and then he said that he doesn’t know when names will be announced, but that they will be good names. Still, the hint that got everyone going was “what's my name?”. It got us all thinking about
