Pol'and'Rock Festival 2018



Short Story
Pol’and’Rock Festival is one of the biggest open-air festivals in Europe. The name had been changed in March 2018 from Przystanek Woodstock (Woodstock Station). Festival was inspired by original Woodstock from USA, but this one takes place in Kostrzyn nad Odra, in Poland. And good news… It’s ticket free! That’s why in Kostrzyn are about 700.000 people every year!

Safety first
People during Pol’and’Rock are being protected by Pokojowy Patrol. There is a huge group of volunteers, who are well trained. They are wearing a red, blue, black or yellow t-shirts – depending on the positions. For example blue t-shirt is for police, red - paramedics, yellow - team leaders and black one is for body guards. They come here every year from all over the world. It’s amazing, everyone can feel safe here – even kids! Parents always give their children special bracelets with a phone number and full address. What's more, their little ears are protected by special headphones.

Most of people come to Pol’and’Rock Festival because of atmosphere. Music is on the second place! Everyone there is open-minded, really helpful, friendly and unique in their own way. It doesen’t matter If you’re black, white, short or tall! Everyone creates this three-days town together and has fun. If you ever come to Kostrzyn nad Odra, you’ll definitely see people in funny costumes or pijamas, who will share their beer with you, food and sometimes even money! All of this things create the spirit of festival.
At P’n’R you can find a lot of „villages” with funny names – ex. „Wiewiórstock” (en. „Squirrelstock”) or „Narnia”. Some of these „villages” gather people from different towns or fans of bands.

Nowadays at Pol’and’Rock Festival you can find almost every type of music with a majority of rock and metal. Everyone can find something for oneself. Every year the line-up is really interesting. There are polish and foreign bands, more or less famous, who play at 3 stages - Big Stage, Small Stage, Viva Kultura Stage and (unofficially) Lech Stage.

You can eat a lot of local food there – żurek (polish soup) or pierogi (dumplings)! If you want to taste something new – you should try to eat vegan goulash from Pokojowa Wioska Krishny. It’s tradition to eat it at least once during the Festival.
