Creative Ways to get to Pol’and’Rock Festival

2019-07-29 23:02:35

 

It’s seriously impressive how creative you all get in choosing your modes of transport to Pol’and’Rock. Every year, we get hundreds of messages with your travel photos: on bikes, in cars, from trains... But this year, you’ve outdone yourselves! Here are some of the highlights of the travel stories you’ve shared with us.


Walking - Monika from Berlin


After the turbulent train transport updates, we’ve shared with you, an alternative movement appeared: of people who are planning to walk to our Festival! 


One of them is Monika, who estimates that her route from Berlin to Kostrzyn will be around 90 kilometres (55 miles) and take about 21 hours of walking to complete.


Biking - Rafał from Kazimierz Dolny


Rafał is trying to convince as many people as possible to join him on his cycling journey to Pol’and’Rock: “Join me along my route or chart your own—as long as it’s by bike! Let’s show everyone that you can travel cheap and healthy. All you need is a bike and some camping gear!”, he writes. 


He says it will be a fantastic adventure and an even better workout, and all brave adventurers’ bikes can be stored in the Lubuskie Zone for the duration of the Festival.


Kayaking - Tomek from Wrocław


This was the biggest surprise for us—and the first time someone has reached us via kayaking through Poland’s waterways. His route began in Wrocław, 358 kilometres (223 miles) away, or an impressive 716 000 oar strikes. 


“I planned my whole Festival around this kayak trip. It will be 6 days of around 60 kilometres each,” he says. We can’t wait to see him in person!


How are you reaching our Festival? If it’s a similarly creative one, let us know on Facebook and we’ll be happy to share your story!
