Dancing with "Vuraj". Besides, the band replaced "Krambambulya" at the fest.



Band "Pawa"

Various interpretations of ancient songs were played at the main stage this time. Besides, the folk stream began to interest the bands which had never sang in Belarusian before. Thus, a hard guitar band "Blu Sky" presented a nearly-ethnical program, while Re1ikt provided a new version of the famous songs "Losiu" and "Oi Rana na Ivana". The band "Pawa" performed folk-dance. Nasta Nyakrasava and her band FolkRoll gave an example of the chamber folk-avanguard.



Re1ikt demonstrated new songs together with Uladzimir Kazlou, who returned to the band.
