ORANGE WARSAW FESTIVAL 2013
Orange Warsaw Festival – one of the biggest musical events in Poland – was a host to world-class artists: Beyoncé, Basement Jaxx, Tinie Tempah, The Offspring, Fatboy Slim and Cypress Hill. They’ve offered fans a real musical treat. It was the sixth edition of the festival that this time took place on 25-26th May on the National Stadium and was attended by over 90 thousand of people.
Beyoncé, performing in Poland for the very first time, probably was the most awaited artist of OWF 2013. Our country was one of the stops on her world tour „The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour”. A singer was accompanied by 11-strong female team – 9 dancers and a choir.
Beyoncé was the most important star of the first day on the festival. Earlier the stage was taken by Polish rock band OCN, rapper Tinie Tempah and the duo Basement Jaxx, who roared the party to the beat of house sounds.
The second day was opened by an alternative rock band Lipali lead by Tomasz Lipnicki. A while later one of the greatest hip-hop bands – Cypress Hill – rocked the stage. That group brings alternative, rock and heavy metal tone to their melodies.
Another strong music smash belonged to the legendary group The Offspring, whose hits like „Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)” or “Why Don’t You Get a Job?” are well known in Poland. At the end of Orange Warsaw Festival fans could listen to the music blend of electro, dance and big beat. Evening of 26th May 2013 definitely belonged to the English musician, composer, DJ and producer – Fatboy Slim. His show was accompanied by an unforgettable performance “lights and sounds”.
Thanks to great organization and inviting world-class stars, Orange Warsaw Festival became a leader of similar big format events in Poland and as statistics show, it attracts a growing number of fans seeking good music. In many cases OWF meets the needs of Polish music fans, wishing to see their favourite star in Poland, as it happened with Beyoncé..
