The first day of the festival belonged definitely to Edyta Bartosiewicz. The audience didn’t want to let the artist go off the stage. Edyta was touched too. She sang her greatest hits in new arrangements and some new tracks from her newly released album. Prior to Edyta there was a concert of controversial Courtney Love and the band named Hole. It was a truly wild rock performance. They played tough, wild and decisive. Love played an encore and also performed ‘Jeremy’, the hit of Pearl Jam, upon the request of the audience. Eddie Vedder would definitely not be ashamed of her version. Saturday was also the day of White Lies, Kumka Olik and Kim Nowak, while on Sunday there were concerts of Aura Dione and Lisa Hannigan. Afterwards, there was time for some Polish accents. Barefoot Monika Brodka sang the hits from her newest album. However, the real show was performed by Mika, a remarkable artist from Lebanon, who entirely worked his magic on the audience with songs and scene play. After him there was a concert of Agnieszka Chylinska who played both her own hits as well as truly rocky covers. At the end the time for Nelly Furtado came who set the stage on fire with her greatest hits.
