Florence & The Machine, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa. It was one of the strongest line-ups in orange Warsaw Festival history. Smith visited Poland for the first time, Florence Welch with her band, is preparing for the new album premiere and Dua Lipa at the top of her popularity – as she became the first soloist in this decade to have a single remaining on the top of British music chart for 7 consecutive weeks! She celebrated her success after the concert, but for her fans, the performance itself was a pure celebration of music, women’s power and gender equality!
Atmosphere of tolerance lasted much longer, as it reached Sam Smith’s concert, who fights any intolerance with his identity. With no doubts his popularity only helps in that fight, which was proven by his fans. They knew his entire repertoire from both albums as well as the singles recorded with Disclosure.
Florence + The Machine, Saturday’s headliner interested gigantic crowds of people, and for 80 minutes they have moved the audience with their greatest hits. We were not missing novelties – 3 songs from the upcoming album – including world’s premiere of the song “Patricia”. Flo’s most devoted fans claim that she has never before spent so much time among her audience as during her concert in Warsaw.
Quebonafide was one step away from jumping into the crowd. Yes, Quebonafide, the unannounced guest at Taco Hemingway’s concert, performed with Taco for five songs recorded by them both as Taconafide. It’s possible that in the close future Dua Lipa and Taco Hemingway will be the headliners of the biggest, Polish festivals.
Saturday’s night at Orange Warsaw Festival has its own rules, but also a logical consequence. This year Axwell ^ Ingrosso, provided the audience with fun with their spectacular set, playing for the dancing crowd. When it comes to the jumping on the scene, Tyler The Creator, used all his unusual, cumulated energy to his fans entertainment.
