i'd have to say that (even though i've seen them before) kaiser chiefs is the bands that i'm currently looking forward to the most.

also natacha atlas and transglobal underground are rumored to make a performance (this via www.szigetnews.com that is a really good site for all sziget rumors)

szigetnews.com had in fact said that official announcment of rage against the machines is just a matter of time :)

in other news: justice, avantasia and (a personal favourite of mine) alanis morisette have been confirmed

Szigetnews.com has added veteran Carl Cox to the Party Arena and Pete Doherty's Babyshambles (main stage?). Leonard Cohen unfortunately canceled all his August tour dates.

Pendulum (which you just have to see live!) has also been added.

It seems that right now there is one free spot on the main stage for both thursday and friday (last day, which this year is sunday, usually has less performers). For thursday Jamiroquai just might be the headliner, but I doubt that Sex Pistols is the header for friday. So, hopefully, the rumors that were circulating some time ago about Rage Against the Machine performing can still be true...
