Cea de-a doua editie a Electric Castle Festival a inceput cum nu se putea mai bine. Peste 17.000 de persoane i-au calcat deja pragul, iar la concertul Die Antwoord, headliner-ul festivalului, au fost prezenti in fata scenei principale 12.000 de persoane, depasind astfel cifrele de anul trecut.

De asemenea, toate cele 10.000 de locuri din camping au fost deja ocupate, iar ogranizatorii au decis suplimentarea acestora cu inca 1.000 de locuri. Momentan nu se mai vand bilete pentru camping, doar cei care si-au cumparat in avans avand practic locurile “rezervate”.

Vremea a tinut cu noi in prima zi si am avut parte doar de cativa nori razleti pe cer. N-a fost nici prea frig, nici prea cald si sper ca acest lucru sa se mentina si in zilele urmatoare.

Ca nivel de organizare, n-am momentan nimic de comentat, poate doar micile decalari de program de la Scena Principala. N-am vazut cozi la tokenuri sau la baruri, toaletele par sa fie suficiente, iar sonorizarea foarte buna.

Si cei din Bontida au inteles importanta acestui festival si au deschis in jurul perimetrului festivalului tot felul de terase si magazine cu preturi mai mici sau aproximativ egale cu cele dinauntru.

La conferinta de presa Barry Ashworth, fondatorul trupei Dub Pistols, a declarat ca ii place extrem de mult la acest festival si ca isi doreste ca peste cativa ani, Electric Castle Festival sa devina unul din acele festivaluri din Europa la care sa “trebuiasca sa mergi macar o data in viata”.

Electric Castle Festival 2014-74

M-a surprins declaratia sa in care a zis ca desi canta in fiecare an la zeci de festivaluri, inclusiv taticul lor, Glastonbury, Dub Pistols asteapta cu nerabdare concertele de langa castelul Banffy.

Apropo de asta, tot in conferinta de presa a fost anuntat faptul ca Dub Pistols vor deveni prima trupa “rezidenta” la Electric Castle Festival, urmand sa fie invitatia sa cante la fiecare editie.S-a glumit si pe seama unui album Dub Pistols live @ Electric Castle, ceea ce nu suna deloc rau.

Electric Castle Festival 2014-59

Prima zi de concerte pe Main Stage a fost deschisa de Aria Urbana, pe care din pacate i-am ratat pentru ca eram la conferinta de presa.

A urmat apoi Akua Naru. Frumoasa artista americana a declarat ca revine de fiecare data cu placere in Romania, iar aseara ne-a oferit chiar si cateva piese noi de pe viitorul ei album.

Electric Castle Festival 2014-91

Dub Pistols ne-au aratat de ce le place atat de mult la Electric Castle si au oferit un show de neuitat pentru toti cei prezenti ieri in fata scenei principale. Un show foarte energic, mult mai spectaculos ca cel de anul trecut si in care am avut si eu un pic de implicare.

Deja celebrul meu steag si-a facut aparitia si la editia nr. 2 de EC, iar surpriza pentru mine a fost atunci cand Barry mi-a cerut sa le dau si lor steagul. Acestia l-au luat pe scena si l-au fluturat timp de cateva piese, in uralele tuturor celor prezenti.

Una din cele mai asteptate trupe romanesti de la Electric Castle Festival a fost cu siguranta Subcarpati, o trupa care are o baza de fani extrem de mare atat in tara, cat si in afara.

Bean & co ne-au prezentat in mare parte piese de pe noul album, “Pielea de gaina”, disponibil la download gratuit aici.

Momentul mult asteptat al primei seri a fost concertul Die Antwoord. Sud-africanii s-au lasat insa destul de mult asteptati, aparand pe scena cu vreo 30 de minute intarziere. N-a mai contat insa pentru nimeni acest aspect de indata ce-a inceput concertul si-a inceput toata lumea sa cante alaturi de ei.

Sunt la fel de spectaculosi si live si ma bucur ca n-au dezamagit din acest punct de vedere. Ninja si Yolandi se completeaza foarte bine pe scena, iar alaturi de DJ Hi-Tek reusesc sa ofere un spectacol foarte energic.

 Die Antwoord (2)

Concertul a facut parte din turneul de promovare al celui mai recent album – Donker Mag – astfel ca am ascultat foarte multe piese de pe acest material. N-au lipsit insa celebrele “I fink u freeky”, “Rich bich”, “Baby’s on fire” sau “Fatty boom boom”.

Ninja a sarit si de doua ori in public, asa cum face aproape la fiecare concert, iar ca sa vedeti un pic din atmosfera de aseara, va las sa urmariti clipul de mai jos.

Seara s-a incheiat cu un imens party in fata scenei principale, gratie mixurilor facute de Wilkinson si Delta Heavy.

Electric Castle – editia a 2-a – a inceput cu dreptul si chiar daca principalul cap de afis a cantat deja, sunt convins ca si urmatoarele trei zile o sa fie mare nebunie la Bontida.

In seara asta ii asteptam pe Thievery Corporation, Foreign Beggars, The Corespondents, The Freestylers si pe multi altii. Va las acum cu poze din prima zi de la Electric Castle Festival 2014.
