From Italy we are moving to Belarus, where LP & the band arrived on the 30th June to take part in Фестиваль “21 век 2018” – 21st Century Festival. 30th July was free-from-the-show, but the next day proved to be quite eventful. First, LP met with Kirill Dzham, her friend & label representative in Russia & Ukraine. Kirill of Effective Records, announced that on the 20th July, Swanky Tunes (already legendary Russian electronic dance music trio) will release their single ft. LP, titled “Day By Day”.
Before the concert LP also was interviewed by @tany_pulse for @nashetv. Interview was conducted in Russian, so I’m afraid LP’s answers will be dubbed. I did write asking for two versions of this interview and perhaps it will work as in the past, but so far – no response… Anyway, then was the time for the concert. Some people have waited for 6 to 8 hours for LP, as she was one of the last performers. And they’ve spent all that time in the cold, wind and pouring rain. The weather was simply horrid. Frankly, I was surprised how many people showed up, but everyone who posted a pic or video said it was totally worth it.
Behind LP, during the concert, there was this huge screen that debuted at Coachella Festival. The screen was for visuals to accompany LP’s performance. And the part that will be the most interesting to all of you happened during ‘Strange’, as it’s exactly then when lucky fans could spot their faces on the screen! Have you seen yourself? I have recognized many LP’s fans – some I’ve met in person, some only on the internet, but I know that each and every person who found themself in the video felt incredibly honoured! It simply made their day, or even a week!
I don’t have any quotes for you, as most, if not all the posts I’ve found were in Russian, and I’m not going to butcher those with google translator. Today LP is already in Latvia, where she will perform at Siguldas pilsdrupu estrāde – the Stage of Sigulda castle-ruins. Also, I have also three galleries of pics from previous concert in Stupinigi, you will find those by clicking here, here & here.
