The band was formed in 1994 in Jacksonville, in Florida. Fred Durst, who is the lead vocalist of the band, and the establishing member of the group, drew inspiration from hip-hop and punk rock culture of the time. He came up with a formula of the band which was to combine elements of rock and rap music, most often described as nu-metal or rap-rock by the critics. Durst's aggressive vocal delivery suits both hip-hop and metal. Combined with Wes Borland's innovative approach to creating music and his extravagant stage appearance, which includes body paint, masks and elaborate costumes, Limp Bizkit locked in on a formula for success.
Their first release came out in 1997. The band's mainstream success came after the release of their sophomore album, 'Significant Others' in 1999. Limp Bizkit solidified their position as the leading player on the rap-rock scene with their third album, 'Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Water'. The band was on its way to becoming the voice of a generation, releasing five studio albums and selling an estimated 40 million copies worldwide.
The ultimate way to experience Limp Bizkit is to see them live. The raw onslaught of fierce energy and a powerful message delivered by the band never fails to impress even the most discerning music fans. This year we hoped for an opportunity to showcase Limp Bizkit at the Most Beautiful Festival in the World, and we are delighted that the band will be opening our festival line-up announcements for the 2021 edition of Pol'and'Rock Festival.
We are working on delivering an unforgettable, utterly free festival experience next summer. The 27th edition of Pol'and'Rock Festival, which used to be known as Woodstock Festival Poland is billed to take place in Kostrzyn nad Odrą in western Poland on 29-31.07.2021.
