On the second evening of Sea Dance, the audience and performers of the festival showed that they were stronger than any weather conditions. Fantastically cheerful headliners expressed their enthusiasm for the location and the festival when they arrived in Montenegro and Buljarica, and all the positive vibes resulted in performances that will be noted as the most emotional in the history of Sea Dance, in front of 8,500 visitors.
The superstar of the electronic scene, the great Maceo Plex treated the audience to an amazing set in which he premiered songs from the new album. The highlights of the performance was the performance of his remix of the classic “Insomnia” by the group Faithless, which threw the fans into an absolute trance on the crowded Visa DANCE PARADISE powered by the Budva Tourism Organization of the Budva Municipality stage! That was a scene that is rarely seen at festivals.
Both before and after Maceo, the main stage performers were brilliant. It all started with the talented upcoming trap star Muha, who was perfectly followed by the guys from Radio Katakomba thus ideally preparing the stage for the big trap duo.
Fox & Surreal first freestyled in the press centre and transferred the great mood to the performance where the strongest reaction of the audience was initiated by their most famous hits.
“Hip-hop guru” is a title that Vojko V can carry with ease, the whole of Buljarica was on their feet for numerous hits both from his solo career and from the repertoire of the never forgotten band “Kiša metaka”.
With the excellent Raven TK and Proximus in the B2B set, the finish of the second day was left in the safe hands of one of the greatest DJs in this area.
Tijana T ideally rounded off the program with a two-hour set. Just before the performance, she shared her impressions of the festival: “One of the most magical moments and the best set in my DJ life happened just here, at the Sea Dance Festival, and I am glad to be here again, because the powerful nature of the beautiful Montenegrin coast has synchronized with the music and brought about that magic”.
As during the previous evenings, at the entrances to Sea Dance health measures that allowed entry to festival grounds were rigorously implemented, and thanks to the excellent organisation throughout the night, there was no crowding and no waiting at any time.
On the third night of the Sea Dance Festival, the audience will be brought to the boiling point by the regional hip hop line-up and a new wave of trap performers, after which the superstars of the world electronic scene will be in charge of excellent party time.
Tonight’s programme at the Visa DANCE PARADISE powered by the Budva Tourism Organization of the Budva Municipality stage opens at 8 pm with DJ and rapper Necke, who is part of the Radio Katakomba company, while after him, at 9:30 pm, the stage will belong to locals named O.G. feat Distortion. At 22:30, Ognjen will appear on the stage, one of the most popular young rappers who goes beyond the underground boundaries, while the urban icon and pioneer of female rap in our area, Sajsi MC, will move the audience with her provocative rhymes at 23:30. Trap sensation Klinac, one of the most popular young hitmakers in the Balkans, will show his great skills from 00:30.
At 01:05 the stage is taken over by P.S., a DJ who has been present on the Montenegrin electronic scene for a long time and is known for his special combination of deep house and techno sounds. The headliners of the festival and one of the most sought-after DJ tandems of today, Tale Of Us, at 03:00, will take the audience on another Afterlife musical journey through melodies, which will be managed by the real wizards of melodic techno. The largest party on the Adriatic will be closed by Audiostorm, one of the best authors of the new generation of electronic music scene in Montenegro, which will take visitors for a ride through his musical opus starting from progressive and deep house, beginning at 05:00.
On the last day of the festival, on Sunday, August 29, the long-awaited founder of high-tech minimal techno Boris Brejcha, the hitmaker Topic, Ann Clue, the Balkans trap queen Senidah, Who See, z ++ and 84Bit will arrive at Sea Dance.
