Friday, August 18, 2017

After the spectacular first night of the festival, the second evening has confirmed what a good time is for 130,000 people who enjoyed within the festival space the performances of seven bands at two stages, bringing the atmosphere to the heat.

Last night's festival day was opened at 18:00 with the performance of Belgrade band The Bangcocks, after which the young band Sindrom was introduced to the audience. The atmosphere in the audience was additionally warmed up by the performance of the band Mortal Kombat, recognizable by their witty texts combined with hard sound, which also performed several songs by Riblja Čorba as the introduction to the next performance.

The performance of the legendary band has attracted 130,000 people who sang in unison the hits of the longest-lived band. The lyrics of the songs "Ja ću da pevam", "Ja ratujem sam", "Radiću šta god hoću", "Anđele" roared across the Ušće. The band played its hits, and in that way marked the beginning of their tour on the occasion of 40 years of existence.

The concert of Direktori, the returnees to the punk scene, kept the audience in a good mood, and the fans sang with their favorite singer Drakula their hit "Mi volimo pivo", an unofficial anthem of all festival visitors.

From midnight, the audience was entertained by the performance of the band Samostalni referenti, and an hour after midnight, the show continued with the spectacular performance of the British hip hop band Stereo MC's.

Tonight, the following program is prepared:
