We’ve heard the rumours before but now Hungarian music site Zene reports that in the next few days Faith No More will be confirmed as playing the legendary Sziget festival in Hungary. The festival takes place on Obudai Island in Budapest from 13-18 August. The report states that Faith No More will be added to the bill along with the Manic Street Preachers, Editors and Tricky in the next few days. Already confirmed for the festival are Bloc Party, The Prodigy, The Offspring and Placebo.
Update: This has now been confirmed on the Sziget site. No dates of an exact date yet but that could come from fnm.com or through Bill Gould later.
Faith No More previously played the festival in 1997. See below (virtually the whole performance is available as a playlist from LitanyCrash on YouTube albeit with slightly warped sound):
