Sziget 20 – Comunicato Stampa

Il Sziget Festival è il posto dove andare a metà agosto. The Europe’s Best Major Festival celebrerà la sua ventesima edizione non solo proponendo un ottimo programma ma anche una nuova idea di festival e tante novità. Proprio con queste innovazioni il festival sarà felice di accogliere tutti i fan delle passate edizioni ma al contempo cerca di attrarre il pubblico dei prossimi decenni. C’è un’altra novità che finalmente possimo annunciare. La nostra grande festa sul Danubio sarà un giorno più lunga con l’introduzione del giorno -2 dedicato alla musica ungherese. Insomma, è tempo di cominciare il conto alla rovescia!

Il programma della ventesima edizione del Sziget Festival ha ormai assunto il suo volto essendo ormai definito al 95%. Il compito degli organizzatori quest’anno non è stato affatto facile viste le avversità e le incertezza economiche ma queste difficoltà sono state superate soprattutto con l’esperienza accumulata nel passato. Già in passato e in altre occasioni proprio dai momenti difficili il Sziget ha saputo dare il meglio di se sviluppando nuove idee e nuove formule che si sono rivelate vincenti!

Il General manager e inventore del festival Karoli Gerendai ha detto” Questa è la ventesima edizione del Sziget: saremmo felici di festeggiarla con il pubblico delle passate edizioni ma al tempo stesso abbiamo pensato ad una programmazione con proposte nuove ed originali che possano attrarre anche i fan più giovani. Io credo che con questa edizione invoglieremo tutti i nostri ospiti a tornare anche per la ventunesima edizione..

Cambi, innovazioni…
Una cosa è certa: per il 2012 anche gli ospiti abituali del Sziget dovranno imparare la mappa del Festival: molti saranno i cambiamenti e molte le novità per quanto riguarda i palchi e le loro location. Alcuni palchi, infatti, avranno uno spazio differente, altri scompariranno (come il Metal Stage che sarà sostituito dal giorno zero dedicato alla musica metal!), altri ancora saranno inseriti per la prima volta nel programma del Sziget.

Cambio di location…
Il World Music stage si sposterà dove lo scorso anno c’era il Giant Street Theater (e prima ancora, nelle primissime edizioni, il Main stage…) e prenderà il nome di OTP World Music Party Stage. Il Giant Street Theatre si sposterà dove lo scorso anno c’era il Metal stage. Il Roma stage troverà la sua sede vicino alla collina del Teatro, di fronte all’ European Meeting Point, mentre la Logical Games Tent si sposterà dove una volta c’era l’Octopus.
Lo spazio multi arti si spsosterà dove lo scorso anno c’era l’ MR2 Hungarian Main Stage, mentre l’Octopus si sposterò dove lo scorso anno c’era il World music stage.
Il World Village si sposterà dove c’era il Blues stage mentre l’A38 si spsosterà più veso il centro, proprio dietro il Main stage e quest’anno offrirà 7 slot al giorno tirando fino al mattino con dj-set internazionali..
Gli spazi per lo sport si sposteranno dove c’era la tenda A38 mentre il Magic Mirror tornerà alla sua location originale. E’ tutto chiaro? Per gli aficionados del Sziget Festival, certamente si.

Spazi più grandi…
La tenda Arena sarà ancora più grande e ospiterà due slot al giorno dell’Europa stage prima del programma di musica elettronica… …

Ritornano…
Torna il Luminarium e sarà montato dove lo scorso anno c’era la tenda Meduza

Nuovi palchi…
Holland meets Hungary e Puglia Sounds/Mambo stage :
Il PugliaSounds/Mambo stage sarà il luogo in cui la musica sarà proposta dagli artisti in una veste diversa dal loro stile abituale. Un palco in cui ci saranno esibizioni in acustico o semi/acustico durante il giorno e dove si darà spazio alle diffusioni radio durante la sera. Un punto di ritrovo per le interviste, confronti e per la diffusione in tempo reale delle notizie provenienti dal Sziget Festival.

Il nuovo palco darà ampio spazio alla musica italiana e pugliese  – regione che negli ultimi anni si è distinta per la spinta fornita alle arti in genere e alla musica. In questa occasione avremo la possibilità di ascoltare alcuni tra i principali nomi della scena musicale del nostro paese e potremo godere dell’ecletticità pugliese tra sonorità tradizionali e nuove tendenze provenienti dalla regione del sud Italia .  Non saranno comunque trascurati gruppi e dj internazionali.

Il palco nasce dalla collaborazione tra L’Alternativa srl, il Mambo Restaurant e Puglia Soundsprogramma della Regione Puglia per lo sviluppo del sistema musicale.

Exciting visuals…
… a whole bunch of them, showing the new face of Sziget, including decorations, lights and great-looking program venues.

The Day of the Hungarian Song…
… the already mentioned -2 Day will be all about Hungarian bands, paying tribute to some great domestic songs. If you think about moving in early, setting your tent and then warming up for the week of partying, well, you will have a great time with a total of 70 performers that day. Your weekly ticket won’t include this day, but you can get a special daily for 17 EUR (not a huge investment compared to the 15 EUR moving-in ticket)

Day -1
… the main focus will stay on Hungarian acts, but not just on them. Csík Ensamble is playing a mega concert on main stage, presenting the finest crossovers between Hungarian folk and pop music and hosting a huge nr. of domestic stars. At the same time (both on Day -1 and 0) the Open Civil stage will host the YOUROPEN talent show, presenting some exciting fresh bands from all over Europe, as part of Sziget’s cooperation with the biggest talent contests of the continent. Check the new stuff and find your new favorites right at Sziget.

Day 0
Metal Daaaaay!!! Hell yes, metal stage is sadly gone, but the regular program still includes some of the hard and heavy acts, while Day 0 will be all about them on the MR2 stage. The international line up of this special day is still taking shape, so more news on this soon. Not into metal? Check out Hungary’s biggest pop icon, Akos, playing his huge show at the same day on main stage.

A38 Stage
Again a venue that changes place, A38’s huge tent is getting right at the center behind main stage, keeping its well known values during the days and the nights, but also offering a very strong electro program between 1AM and 5AM, designed to make up for the loss of the Meduza venue.

Arena
… the other megatent of the festival, spreading its program in 4 slots daily in a bigger than ever venue. Arena is starting already at 4PM each day and as a startup hosts bands that would have probably played on the Europe Stage last year. These are the so-called “Europe slots”, presenting acts that are well known back home, but still waiting for their big international breakthrough, including I Cani (ITA), Frittenbude (GER), 1995 (FRA), In Golden Tears (GER), Grimus (ROM), Elektro Guzzi (AUT), Chef’s Special (NED), Teatro Degli Orrori (ITA), Danakil (FRA) and Amon Amarth (FIN).

Hungarian Main Stage
As alway, a full ine-up of Hungarian stars, this time on a venue moving to the old place of the world music stage. Not compulsory, but being the open-minded Sziget fan who you are, just make sure you dedicate some time to this stage and get a taste of Hungary.

SMALLER VENUES – A.K.A THE SOUL OF SZIGET

Roma Tent
Part of the festival for 11 years, making Sziget the only big festival dedicating an independent venue for the Roma culture. Open your mind and you will actually find yourself in the middle of a great party. The highlight is on music, but also presenting other art forms, like exhibitions. The program includes:

Holland meets Hungary Stage
The idea of a Dutch venue is based on the success of last years’ Dutch Meeting Point and the general popularity of Sziget in The Netherlands. However this wants to be a lot more than just a Dutch cultural showcase, rather concentrating on an open-minded cooperation between Dutch and Hungarian artists, including jam sessions of famous musicians and also presenting afternoon chats and presentations with prominent guests.

Puglia Sounds – Mambo Stage
Semi-acoustic concerts and DJ sets during the day, interviews, live radio programs and presentations at night, hosting bands and guests from all over the world. And very importantly: presenting all the musical talents the South Italian region of Puglia has to offer.

Another emblematic Sziget venue, presenting the French actors of Compagnie Pipotal and their performance with the title Basculoscopia.

The very best of Hungarian folk culture, including dance, games, exhibitions, music, fire-jumping and some great traditional wines and bakeries of the host country. On Sunday morning you can even join an ecumenical mass at the same venue.

Wine & Fröccs Garden
The best place to taste Hungarian wines, right next to Hungaricum village.

WAMP
Sunday arts market, right next to Hungaricum Village

Civil Sziget and Open-Civil Stage
The name says it all: presentations, performances, games, movies and a lot of music – dealing with everything in connection with an open civil attitude.

Logical Games Tent
Chess, Rubik cube, puzzle, domino and any games you might think about… respect the rules.

Olympic and Sports venue
Daytime activities, games and a number of sports possibilities for Sziget fans who search an active recreation. A special focus will be on the Olympics, so you can watch the games live on giant screens and also try yourself in competitions.

More to come in the next few months.
