There were several strong performances in the evening too. The main stage belonged to the ladies: Katarzia from Slovakia, Birdy from the UK, Solange from the USA, and M.I.A. from the UK. Sadly, the last concert ended sooner than planned, due to technical problems, Sme wrote.

On the Orange stage, the likes of Billy Barman, Benjamin Clementine and Austra performed, while the EUrope stage saw Alice Phoebe Lou from the South African Republic and the Thurston Moore Group. The Budiš stage hosted such acts as US rock singer Mark Lanegan and group, SITA wrote.
