Pol’and’Rock Festival is one of the biggest polish music events and the biggest non-commercial event in Europe. It has recently changed its name from the Woodstock Festival.
It is a one of a kind Rock celebration which every year attracts tens of thousands of people of all ages and nationalities. This year the first day is set on 1 August (Thursday) and will last until the 3 days. The first edition of Woodstock took place in 1995 and since then it has been an amazing journey full of great music, unforgettable atmosphere and hippie vibe.
It takes place in Kostrzyn upon Odra and the area of the festival is huge. It is divided into 5 stages: Main, Small, Lech, Viva Kultura and the ASP Night Stage. On each of the stages you can find some amazing artists. This edition the stars of the Main Stage will be Ziggy Marley (the oldest son of Bob Marley), Lordi, ACID Drinkers and many others! The ASP Night Stage is something pretty special – this place is not about music, but about talking. During the meetings participants can take part in a discussion with famous people concerning almost every topic. This year The ASP Stage welcomes among many for example: Olga Tokarczuk, Wojciech Smarzowski or prof. Ewa Łętowska. The organizer of the festival is the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.
The whole event is special for several reasons, let’s name two of them: it is free and everyone can take part in it as a performer! You are able to send your CD and it doesn’t matter or you’re in a popular band or just debutantes, everyone is welcome.
Pol’and’Rock is an incredible event where people can connect, enjoy and feel free, no matter who they are or where they come from. It is a real Festival of Freedom.
