Key info for Pol'and'Rock Festival 2021

 

 

Pol'and'Rock Festival, known as Woodstock Festival Poland, is the biggest non-commercial music event in Europe. The concerts, other activities such as workshops and meetings with influential figures from the Polish culture, arts, politics and journalism, and main campsites are all FREE. It comes as no surprise that the music and unforgettable atmosphere of the festival seeped in freedom attracts hundreds of thousands of people to our festival. 

The Festival is driven by ideals rather than money. We promote ideals of love, friendship, and we believe in music as accessible to all regardless of the depth of their pockets. We showcase some of the best international and legendary music acts from Poland and promising new bands from all over the world on five vibrant festival stages. Even though our festival's roots are essentially all heavy metal, we diversify our line-up so that fans of rock, indie, hip-hop, alternative rock, and reggae will find something to enjoy. 

We celebrate social activism, and we aim to create an inclusive and diverse community of festival-goers. 

This year we found a new home for Pol'and'Rock Festival. We will build our smaller, safe, socially distant edition of our festival on Makowice Airfield in the municipality of Płoty in northwestern Poland. 

To hold a safe event that meets all requirements regarding coronavirus safety precautions, we have to introduce festival entry passes. Even though the festival remains free, the cost of the festival entry pass, which is PLN 49 (regardless of the time you plan to spend at the festival), will cover the expenses relating to rapid COVID-19 tests and all personal protection equipment we will provide - such as masks and disinfectant liquids.
