On Wednesday, just prior to 4pm, folks will be smuggled earlier the central space, which is however closed, into the VAZ hall, the place the pre-glow frequency will boost. It might look a minimal unusual to devote the sunny afternoon in a room when they stroll in, but most persons breathe a sigh of relief: the area is air-conditioned. Unexpectedly, quite a few people today demonstrate up there to greet the initial act.

Gayle, 18, of Dallas, Texas, went viral on TikTok last year with her music “abcdefu”. She now stands in entrance of Austrian fans of her possess age and asks: “Who right here is below 25?” – the huge the greater part rejoice. It takes fewer than 10 minutes to toss the very first mosh pit. The moments of relaxation are in excess of, the time has occur to go nuts.

Pan Kee-Bois also did well. The Viennese collective excites the crowd with her tunes and, if that weren’t sufficient, “L’amour toujours” is briefly performed. The Bois acquire turns throwing by themselves into the offended crowd, when the request “Baby, just take off your shirt” in the track “Citylights” are exclusively adult males pursuing her.

Top boss Eli Preiss requires the phase as always, all set to wow fans with her playful streams and her voice. They continue to do not know that Eli will blow your brain in no time, mainly because he not only has his mother with him, but also two dancers for the initial time. Sorry, Pass up Beyoncé, but Eli Preiss has presently stolen the very best. When Eli walks throughout the stage with them and says “Clap, clap, clap, I’m clapping,” he evokes the full panoply of early 2000’s star R’n’B artists. J-Lo would be proud. Eli Preiss fills the whole place with his presence and attracts additional and additional men and women.

It will get actually fast paced just ahead of the YUGO show.

There are seemingly not as a lot of persons coming into the hall as people who have by now established up the pitch at Frequency nowadays. As extra and more people today wished to enter, the entrance was last but not least blocked.

Understandably, the truth that no 1 can enter just isn’t exactly very well acquired by the followers, who have been herded outside for over 50 % an hour for entry. You will be questioned to return to the campsite, which is not an simple activity as it is now no longer doable to go back again and forth in the lock in front of the entrance.

The stage will be shut early

The presently heated ambiance ultimately intensifies. The fences are overturned, men and women go in and out uncontrolled, in and on best of every single other. Stability tries to act and lower the scenario, which they only moderately manage to do.

For a lot of, this is troublesome, complaints are elevated about the organization. The resentment is comprehensible, but it is bitter when the festival viewers directs it with out measure and aims at the overcome protection personnel and throws plastic bottles at the person who has the thankless undertaking of obtaining on stage and canceling the live performance.

Soon after this extra than bumpy start out, we can only hope that the condition and tempers have calmed down right away and that almost everything will enhance in the coming times. The actual pageant hasn’t even commenced, that was “just” PreQuency. And how do you say in the theater?
