All the stages were occupied on the second day (July 7) of Pohoda, one of the biggest festivals in Slovakia that takes place in Trenčín.

Apart from numerous accompanying activities, discussions and films, the festival-goers enjoyed concerts by acts such as Gallowstreet, Katarzia, Birdy, Solange, M.I.A., C Duncan, Billy Barman, Shobaleader One, Squarepusher, B-Complex, the Resisters, the Thurston Moore Group, the Mark Lanegan Band, Pixvae, the Blow Trio, Nvmeri, and Saténové ruky, to mention a few.

A special project for Pohoda 21 was also organised: Godár – Kofroň – Burlar and the Slovak Radio Symphonic Orchestra, playing music by one Czech and two Slovak composers, the SITA newswire reported.

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.
