Friday June 22, DeadMan’s Blues Fuckers, Milanese heavy blues duo. DIY instruments and bushy beards, and a mix of heavy rock, stoner vibes and, a lot of primitive electric blues. The atmosphere calmed down a bit in the middle of the evening, when Diego Potron took the stage, a one-man blues show with a special feeling and repertoire. Friday night ended with GorillaPulp, an Italian band that originally fuse blues with stoner sounds and heavy metal from the 70s, creating a mixture of Heavy Blues and Stoner Rock.

Saturday June 23 was the moment of the local blues moment with Cyfer Trio, the current project of Călin Cyfer, one of the most appreciated guitarists of the Blues Rock scene in Romania. Călin was accompanied on stage by Darius Neagu (drums) and Kerezsi Csongor (bass).
