Concert Review: Wednesday Campanella’s Performance at OFF FESTIVAL 2018 is a Huge Success

08.August.2018 | MUSIC

Wednesday Campanella performed at this year’s OFF FESTIVAL in Poland on August 4. The outdoor music festival has taken place in the city of Katowice since 2006. In 2017, UK news magazine The Guardian ranked it in their top 10 list of music festivals in Europe.

There was a sliver of rain on Saturday night. The evening turned late, and the crowd began to chant “Wednesday! Wednesday! in unison, during which the intro to Eisei began to play, signalling lead vocalist and sole performing member KOM_I to step onto the festival’s Experimental Stage. She was greeted with huge cheers and a round of applause from the crowd, which rippled from the front row all the way outside the tent area. KOM_I got the crowd going even more as she straddled over the front of the stage for Momotaro (Remix) and Uran-chan.

During Matilda, the crowd lost sight of KOM_I, who reappeared on a smaller stage that had been prepared in the middle of the crowd. She sang Gogh with all she had surrounded by everyone before returning to the stage.

The singer went on to perform new songs including Minakata Kumagusu and Mizaru Kikazaru Iwazaru, as well as The Bamboo Princess during which KOM_I danced within the dazzling lights, her silhouette looking like a fairy. Once the song was over, the claps and cries didn’t stop, and the crowd began stomping their feet.

I’ve never seen such a wonderful audience! Thank you!” KOM_I commented. The Polish audience, who enjoy their music with everything they got, matched perfectly with the music of Wednesday Campanella.

Having performed in Asia, the US and now Europe, Wednesday Campanella is now being received in Europe little by little. We look forward to seeing how it all pans out.
