We have decided to take off the Sziget 2012 lineup poll, as its results were no longer accurate. There was an unusually large amount of votes yesterday and the day before yesterday, and it would seem that most of them were in order to make the results go towards "very bad" After analyzing this and the statistics of the poll plugin, we decided to take it down, as it was quite obvious that someone was not playing fair and that the results didn't reflect the reality of your votes. We're thinking about using a different poll system, one that's embedded in a post
As we do every year, we have a Sziget 2012 lineup poll, where you guys can vote on the lineup. Since the lineup is close to being the final one, we thought it would be a good idea to have the poll. Fell free to vote on it - it's on the page's right side and will stay there until Sziget 2012 begins.
Two of the most important bands in the Sziget 2012 lineup so far have posted dates for Sziget on their official sites. Of course, they are in our Sziget 2012 lineup page, that’s constantly updated. According to the official website, Korn will be playing Sziget Festival 2012 on August 9. dEUS will play on August 8, their official website says. (thanks go to ohyeahfestivals)
The first big Sziget 2012 lineup announcement is here, as promised yesterday. And just as we told you a few days ago, it starts with Placebo. Then, we have Hurts (pictured below), back after their performance at Sziget 2011, The Horrors, and The Subways (back, just like Placebo, after performing at Sziget in 2009). Joining the Sziget 2012 lineup will be Crystal Fighters, Mando Diao, Noah & The Whale, and Friendly Fires. In the official announcement, Karoly Gerendai, Sziget’s main organizer, says that “there’s a lot more to come.” There's also a trailer for the lineup so far. Watch it in the rest of this
The first lineup announcement for Sziget Festival 2012 could be sooner than we all would have thought. According to the szigetfestival Facebook account, the official Sziget Facebook page for the UK, Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, we should expect it soon. Here's what they're saying: Did you already know, this time our first acts announcement will come much earlier than in the previous years? Expect it soon!
Our reader Paul has asked the organizers, on the Sziget Festival Official Facebook why tickets are more expensive for Sziget 2012 than they were this year. He got a very encouraging answer: We plan to celebrate Sziget 20th edition with the strongest line-up ever so unfortunately rise in prices is unavoidable. We can't wait to hear who will be in it!
