There will be 61 additional trains running to and from Kostrzyn nad Odrą. Traditionally there have always been additional, festival train services provided by the Regional Train Services (Koleje Regionalne), which brought festival-goers to Kostrzyn nad Odrą from major towns in Poland. This year in a decision which has surprised both, the audience and the organisers of the festival, the Regional Train Services refused to introduce additional trains into the summer train schedule. The official cited vandalism and financial losses it has suffered as the reason behind their decision.

However, the heads of local governments in Poland responded to the public outcry for more train services which can bring festival-goers to and from the festival. The majority of extra trains will be provided by the local governments of Lubush, Pomeranian, Kuyavian-Pomeranian, West Pomeranian, Warmian-Masurian, Opole, and Greater Poland voivodeships. 46 additional trains, running from different towns across the country, will greatly facilitate the transport to the festival.

 

Festival-goers will be able to board trains bound for Kostrzyn nad Odrą from Koszalin, Słupsk, Szczecin, Kraków, Warszawa, Olsztyn, Kędzierzyn-Koźle, Rzeszów, Białystok, Gdynia, Toruń, Łuków, Poznań.  What is more, as per the announcement issued by the Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, there will be additional trains running to and from Kostrzyn nad Odrą bringing the number of additional train services to and from Kostrzyn nad Odrą to 61. The ministry also confirms that additional carriages will be provided to support regular train services.
