The jubilee began with an unforgettable evening at Kastel!
Last night, the tenth anniversary edition of the Fresh Wave Festival started in a spectacular way at the Banja Luka Fortress Kastel!
As we announced, a spectacular and complete musical experience on three festival stages delighted the visitors of the jubilee edition of the Fresh Wave Festival, and the tenth review of some of the most desirable and appreciated regional and world performers began with great performances by Sama Abdulhadi, Adam Beyer and the Bad Copy band. (Ice and Timbe) and Krankshvester, Smoke Mardeljana and others!
The premiere performance in Bosnia and Herzegovina of Same’ Abdulhadi will remain etched in the largest festival stage of the M:Tel Main Stage of the nFresh Wave Festival as a sacrament of musical rhapsody in which a part of the soul of this fantastic artist remains forever placed in a dimension where, apart from the symbiosis of performers, the audience and the festival in the waves euphoria, delight and unforgettable emotions come. Sama’ demonstrated to us not only musical knowledge but also a huge heart in which, we are sure, the Fresh Wave Festival from last night has a special place!
At the performance of the legendary Adam Beyer, what we were all waiting for happened! The absolute eruptive performance of the techno magician blew away the clouds above Kastel as well as the audience with a great set and once again showed why he has been synonymous with the very top of electronic music in general for decades. The audience of the Fresh Wave Festival finally got to see the performance of this DJ icon, and it was clear to everyone who watched the start of another edition of the best BiH music festival that it was worth the wait after last night.
No less unforgettable were the performances of regional hip hop greats on the Jagermeister Live stage, where, in a festive manner, with the performances of Krankshwester, Bad Copy (Ice and Timbe) and Smoke Mardeljana, August 11 – the birthday of Hip Hop and gave a kind of homage to this musical genre.
