A music festival with the feeling of a house party
The Pohoda festival is an event that over the last 24 years has reached international acclaim. They successfully mashed up everything on your shuffle list into one festival, meaning that at last, Alternative, Indie, Electronica, World Music, Punk and Classical meet in one big festival of fun. If that isn’t enough for your super high standards, besides the music on offer, there is also a place carved out for literature, dance, visual arts, film and theatre. A huge line-up, including the likes of Liam Gallagher, Lykke Li, The Roots and literally hundreds more will be awaiting all those who turn up. Check out the full line-up, here.
To get there you will need to… get your tush on a bus in the direction of Bratislava, once you are there visit the castle and maybe take a picture, tell your mate that it’s amazing how cheaper the prices are there, nod in approval and get your tush on a regional bus towards Trencin. Once there, the festival offers a shuttle service. Check out more info, here.
This festival is special because… it truly combines different music styles and offers a nice contrast with its other cultural offerings. The festival is planned in a home party ‘kinda way in which every detail is planned so everyone attending will have a blast!
Recommended if you like: pressing shuffle on any device to see what shows up, understanding the social criticism of Shakespeare through the sounds of a deep electronic house mix, jumping up and down with a beer in your hand, someone sitting in your shoulders, dedicated your youth the the part-ay, clapping your hands to the right moments in songs, that moment when a breakdance circle forms and nobody is too shy to take the floor, moshpits
