Although the world star singer Rihanna arrived to the Sziget Festival as the “most bohemian world star who ever visited Hungary”, she was not bohemian enough on the stage according to almost all of the Hungarian newspapers and portals.
Rihanna performed “more smoke than fire” at Sziget Festival in Budapest writes about this sad news many of Hungarian portals. Here is the voice of some of those:
Index.hu writes; “who thought the 0. day can be crappy because of the chaos what’s may caused by the mass, well that was wrong. The performance of Rihanna was a real catastrophe, it was the thing that made the 0. day terrible. After a half an hour late she held a boring concert without any fire in it.”
“Village-fair feeling for one million dollars”, writes the hvg.hu.
“Rihanna’s concert was shockingly bad”, reports the tabloid blikk.hu
444.hu published that, “the guy in the background made a bigger party than Rihanna did yesterday:”
Yesterday was on the show the Parov Stelar too, but according to index.hu they did not accomplish their best performance neither. …but it was even better than Rihanna index.hu writes.
However, the party was saved thanks to other great musicians and performers such as Travis Scott, the MØ and Jake Bugg.
