Darin's second and last show at RIX FM Festival took place yesterday in Stockholm. He woke up sick, so his voice was not at its best, but still he managed to make the audience scream for him.
As in the previous show in Linköping, he performed four songs: his latest single Mamma Mia, Playing With FireNobody Knows and En Apa Som Liknar Dig.
