  Przystanek Woodstock

Przystanek Woodstock (Woodstock Poland) is a huge summer music festival held in the beginning of August in Kostrzyn on the Oder, Poland. The Festival is organized by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation in order to thank all its volunteers and supporters who take part in the annual Grand Finale fundraising event in January. The first Woodstock Festival was held in 1995 in Czymanów at the ?arnowieckie Lake. Every year, Przystanek Woodstock features a few dozen bands from Poland and abroad. The guests are invited to perform on one of our two stages: the Big Stage or the Small Stage, also known as the Folk Stage. For 15 years the Orchestra has been organizing auditions for bands willing to perform for the Woodstock audience. Any groups interested in such an opportunity, whether they are a well-known group already or quite new to the scene, may send their demo CD to Fabryka Zespo?ów, which has been managing the band recruitment process for Przystanek Woodstock since 2009.

Mike Love at Woodstock Festival

Tirelessly searching for new inspiration and passionate about sharing his message with the world via music, Mike Love describes his creative process as a healing and educational journey. Mike Love's music is best described as a fusion of roots, reggae and soft rock music. This year a solid helping of positive, sunny tunes will flow from the Second Stage!


Poparzeni Kawą Trzy join line-up

The band's members are all radio journalists. Having come together to create music, rather than review it, they have settled on a characteristic mix of reggae, ska, and rock music. Their humorous lyrics and tongue in the cheek approach to performances have won them sympathy and approval from the public and critics alike.

Tie Break at AFA Night Stage

The band has been often described as hooligans of jazz. The award-winning musicians play avant-garde arrangements, not shying from experiments and introducing elements of folk and world music into their music. We are delighted to be able to host true legends of Polish jazz music on AFA stage!

-Łona, Webber, and the Pimps at the Second Stage-

Coming from Szczecin, a coastal city in the west-north of Poland, Łona and Webber are a rap duo formed by the rapper Adam Zieliński a.k.a. “Łona” and Andrzej Mikosz a.k.a. “Webber”. Last year marked the tenth anniversary of their debut album “Koniec Żartów [Enough with the Jokes], released by Asfalt Records, a label known for ambitious hip-hop projects.

Łona’s remarkable style is characterized by intelligent humor and Webber’s production style alludes to classic New York stylistics often combined with analog synthesis. The lyrics, with their uncommon sensitivity and scathing wit can be classed as intellectual hip-hop, and the artist is often playing with the sounds and grammar of the language.

“Łona, Webber & The Pimps” is a concert project in which the duo is accompanied by instrumentalists who set Webber’s music in completely new arrangements. The sound of live instruments is a remarkable change, very rare in the Polish hip-hop community. The Pimps have four members: Jose Manuel Alban Juarez (percussion), Michał Kowalski (keybord instruments), Daniel Popiałkiewicz (guitar), and Maciej Kałka (bass).


-'When Cat's Away...(Tales of Infidelity) play at AFA-
We are delighted to host Capitol Theatre at Woodstock Festival Poland this year. We invite all festival-goers to their hit comedy play about mishaps that might befall long-term married couples. With impeccable comedic timing and scathing humour, the play is not one to miss!
