Deichkind got the party started. Ukrainian band Jinjer criticized “fucking Putin regime”.

On the third day of Nova Rock, the dust returned to the Pannonia Fields: In bright sunshine, the fans gathered in front of the stages from the start, partied with The Offspring, sang with ropes and spears or practiced political protest with the Ukrainian band Jinjer . At a later hour there was an excursion into Dadaist pop with Deichkind.

The Danes Volbeat showed how hard guitars and the loose hip movement of Rock’n’Roll can be combined: singer Michael Poulsen and his three colleagues are now old acquaintances at Nova Rock, where they are regularly allowed to occupy the headliner slot. “It’s been a long time,” Poulsen told the audience. “You look old – and so do I!”

Of course, it doesn’t just have to be straightforward. After all, Deichkind know that with a proper stage show and a lot of love for the offbeat, pretty much anything is possible. On top of that, there was a solution to current problems: “The world is not through yet. You just have to get rid of the fat, old, rich sacks,” said the formation. “Then things will go up again.”

“Somehow we’ve become an inventory,” the duo Seiler and Speer smiled before the performance – and they were right. The Nova audience can’t seem to get enough of some bands.

The Ukrainian metal band Jinjer provided political tones in the afternoon. “We are here to draw attention to the problems in our homeland, to all the destruction,” said singer Tatiana Shmailyuk during the tough and strong performance. She thanked “all the solidarity, for all the humanitarian aid, for all the support” against the “fucking Putin regime”. The group played the anger right off their souls. “We want our home back!” demanded Shmailyuk, who sang, screamed and roared. A peace sign in the colors of the Ukrainian flag was emblazoned in the background.
