  1. …it’s not solely my list, it’s a result of infos and discussions on the german “bestdayz”-Sziget-board…! 😉

  2. well, any band can come. Marina and the Diamonds is in Los Angeles on the 7th of August and then they are coming to Sziget 🙂 So I secretly hope for Daft Punk 😀

  3. @Mirex:

    It’s not completely right that every band can come. Actually it is right: because in the end it’s usually a question of money, but it’s very expensive to get a band from America or Australia to Europe for just one show and the budget of Sziget is comparably small.

    Bands from overseas are only realistic if they play other shows in Europe as well, which is a reason for checking which bands are confirmed for other August festivals in Europe, before speculating if they might play Sziget.

    Marina & The Diamonds are an UK act and as such can stop over on their way home or easily get to Budapest from the UK after their return.

    (Daft Punk would ba amazing – but they haven’t confirmed a single show 2011 yet!)

  4. I’ve been doing this for a while, trying to see which bands are in the neighbor hood during sziget 😛

    And I can give you the following speculations, without their other performances during that time though, I just put their names down.

    Guns n’ Roses
    My Chemical Romance
    Rick Astley (yes, rick astley)

    That’s my list, I also had Apocalytica, BFMV, Ozzy and Rise Against on it but RA is confirmed and the other three are in Mellowmaniac’s list 😉

  5. Add Pendulum to that list. They’re in Estonia on the 12th and in Germany on the 12th, 13th and 14th. So on the 10th or 11th it could be time for Hungary.

  6. Pendulum will play on Volt Festival, that’s why i think they will not be on Sziget.
    it is also possible to see on sziget-list:
    – Editors
    – Kosheen
    – David Guetta

  7. As for me i hope to see Disco Ensemble and Donots! Their shows on sziget 2009 was so great!

  8. Crystal Fighters (18 Aug. Frequency Festival)
    Two Door Cinema Club (18 Aug. Frequency Festival)
    Foo Fighters (18 Aug. Frequency Festival)
    White Lies (19 Aug. Lowlands)
    Fleet Foxes (19 Aug. Lowlands)
    Dropkick Murphy’s (Frequency Festival)
    Good Charlotte (11 Aug. Open Flair)
    Robyn(11 Aug Way Out West)
    Warpaint (11 Aug Way Out West)
    probably Arcade Fire still in Europe

  9. Slayer is in Budapest on April 8, so it seems quite implausible for them to return in August.

  10. April to August is 4 months, imo they could play there again, why not. Some bands give three concerts in one city in three days, so why not two in four months.

  11. Ohh.. Damn I hope for the prodigy..
    But something else.. Queens of the Stone age is touring through Europe in the months of July and august.. so maybe they will stop at sziget.
    Does somebody know something about Billy Talent?

  12. Bombay Bicycle Club, Jamie T, Uffie, Fukkk Offf, Bonaparte, Delphic, Fanfarlo, Good Shoes, I Blame Coco, Klaxons, Portugal. The Man, The Drums, The Whip, Wir Sind Helden are in Germany at Dockville Festival in the same week as Sziget is held… I HOPE FOR ALL OF THEM 😀

  13. ok, no, that was a mistake, again: Fukkk Offf, Metronomy, Editors, Gold Panda 😀

  14. I would say:

    Kings of Leon (100%)
    The Script (yes they could be there)
    Bob Sinclar

    There could be some other BIG names too. Will see!

  15. i saw slipknot is at sonisphere and system of a down is at novarock, nickelsdorf which is pretty close.

  16. I sent a mail to several bands (their managers). James Sandom, the manager of White Lies confirmed, that they are coming to Sziget!

  17. @Festivalfreak: Thanks for your work! Great news!!!

    I did the same thing last year with some bands I was in contact with and got early confirmations from GWAR and Toy Dolls – so it’s always worth to try!

  18. Robert plant & band of joy?
    Slash maybe?
    Muse, jet, angus and julia stone would be awesome!

  19. Editors (12 Aug Dockville Festival, Germany)
    Twin Shadow ( 11 Aug Way Out West, Sweden)

  20. According to a presentation held by Karoly Gerendai (sziget chief), Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon will not play sziget this year.

  21. @foofighter:

    Kings of Leon is no surprise, because they aren’t around at the time of Sziget and unfortunately the Foo Fighters added only dates after their FM4 Frequency show that we were kind of expecting that they will not play…

    Where other things told at the presentation which may give a hint what to expect, beside of the already known bands and facts?

  22. No, he only spoke about the bands that wont play, as the presentation was not about the lineup :S

  23. My alltime favorite electro liveband LEFTFIELD play on Panensky at the same time Sziget takes place!!!

  24. also it is so possible to see Primal Scream. The will be in Wien and Praha in August…

  25. New confirmations for Balaton Sound (and because of this most probably not at Sziget):
    – Snoop Dogg
    – David Guetta
    – Mika
    – Big Boi (Outkast)
    – Simian Mobile Disco (live)
    – Sebastian Ingrosso
    – Fedde Le Grand
    – Mark Knight
    – Hercules And Love Affair
    – Karl Bartos
    – Fake Blood (live)
    – Josh Wink
    – Seth Troxler
    – Rusko
    – Dj Krush

    Some amazing acts – but none of the acts was a rumour for Sziget…

  26. New at Balaton Sound:

    – Snoop Dogg
    – David Guetta
    – Mika
    – Big Boi (Outkast)
    – Simian Mobile Disco (live)
    – Sebastian Ingrosso
    – Fedde Le Grand
    – Mark Knight
    – Hercules And Love Affair
    – Karl Bartos
    – Fake Blood (live)
    – Josh Wink
    – Seth Troxler
    – Rusko
    – Dj Krush

  27. Sziget officially confirmed on Facebook that Pulp will be one of the mainstage headliners. This leaves three more headliners to be announced – perhaps we get two confirmed next week with the next annoucnement.!?

  28. kieran: of course, the chemical brothers will headline. they headline every time they are at sziget
