Godyva is an Italian band that played songs of their current album "Planetarium". Nevertheless the show was rather underwhelming. Lady Godyva was very keen on communicating with the audience so that there were much more talks of her rather than it was sung. That lead to the point that Godyva due to the tight and strict schedule were not able to play their complete set and had to leave stage ahead of schedule.
Musically they offered not really convincing and overwhelming gothic symphonic metal. That was also seen like this by the audience because no matter how hard Lady Godyva was trying she was not able to raise the atmosphere. And so this was directly the first anticlimax of the day after it started quite promising. The only a little bit more emotional moment was when Lady Godyva dedicated the song "Deep Inside" to the murdered Sara, a girl originating in her hometown.
