Pol'and'Rock Festival – new place, new experiences

2022-08-03 16:04:30

Long-awaited concerts, meetings with inspiring guests at the Academy of the Finest of Arts and, above all, you – the best people on earth! These are the elements without which we can’t imagine the Festival. Check out what we have prepared for you together with our partners!

 

Play Night'and'Day

Take a selfie at one of the spots designed especially for the occasion! They'll get your Instagram red-hot. If you want to catch your breath and recharge for the rest of the Festival, drop by the Play’ zone with your phone or power bank. A space for carefree relaxation and, as always, a charging station awaits you there. But that's not all! Play has prepared loads of attractions to keep you entertained, even after the sunset. 

A reverse slide, light painting, competitions, as well as parties in the evening, will allow you to collect amazing festival memories. 

 

Podwórko Allegro (Allegro’s Playground)

This year's Pol'and'Rock Festival will also feature the Allegro brand. The big ferris wheel, permanently inscribed in the landscape of the Most Beautiful Festival in the World, is already waiting for you. Allegro will once again invite festival-goers for an extraordinary ride, during which you can listen to concerts and watch the beautiful panorama of the Czaplinek-Broczyno airfield. Gather a team and play beach volleyball on a specially prepared pitch. And if sport is not your favourite activity, try your hand at the large format games, i.e. Twister, frogs, chess and checkers. In addition, everyone will be able to enjoy a moment of peace and relaxation on the custom swings and deckchairs set up in the shaded area. Be sure to find a moment to enjoy the healthy air from the brine mist graduation tower!

Lech zone

This year, in addition to the Lechend Town, the organiser has prepared a special Lech Free zone with non-alcoholic beer. All drinks will be sold in reusable cups made of recycled materials. You can borrow them against a deposit for the duration of the Festival and return them at any time or take them with you. 

An additional attraction is a raffle in which festival-goers can win a limited edition music T-shirt with graphics designed by Jurek Owsiak! Detailed information is available at loterialech.pl. There will also be something for fans of electronic music in the zone. Every evening you will hear great party tunes live on the LECH Music Stage DJ container. 

Also remember the "Breathalyser Test" zone, where you can check your breath alcohol level. Breathalysers are at your disposal at three points on the festival grounds: in the Lech Zone, at the paid RockCamp campsite and at the festival exit towards the car parks.

 

The Main Stage

Over 67m long, 28m wide, 18m high and weighing over 200 tonnes – this is our festival Main Stage in all its glory. We can't confirm it, but we're almost certain, it's the biggest stage in Czaplinek's history! The dominant red colour, size, weight and strong NO WAR slogan make it impossible not to notice. Slowly the team is putting the finishing touches to everything so that you can enjoy the concerts of your favourite bands starting on Thursday. This year, the Main Stage will host more than 20 bands from all over the world and Poland. You will hear, among others, this year's Golden Spinning Top winners Dirty Shirt (heavy metal straight from Romania), Jinjer (Ukrainian metal), King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (Australian psychedelic rock) or performers from the Polish music scene, such as Ørganek or Kwiat Jabłoni. Do you already have your favourites?


AFA and the Second Stage

The Academy of Finest of Arts, of which mBank is a patron, is a place for unique meetings, inspiring conversations and touching moments. During the day you will be able to meet interesting personalities from the world of culture and art there. This year, we will host, among others, the Neo-Nówka comedy group, which will open the events at the Academy of Finest of Arts with a performance on Wednesday at 8 pm. In the following days, we will be visited by the actress Barbara Kurdej-Szatan, the statistician and book author Janina Bąk and two war correspondents – Wojciech Bojanowski and Marcin Wyrwał, who is a Peace Patrol volunteer. This year, mBank has also invited special guests to the AFA – Kamila Kielar and Piotr Strzeżysz. You will be able to see them on Friday at 10:00. 

In the evening, the AFA will change its face and become the Second Stage. Over the three days of the Festival, on the stage you will hear not only the winners of the 2022 Emerging Bands Competition: Dance Like Dynamite, Gorgonzolla, Pull the Wire or Makiwara, but also other invited bands, including the Polish-Ukrainian band DAGADANA, Gutek, Uliczny Opryszek or the only Polish band with a black tractor – the Blenders.

West Pomeranian Voivodeship Zone

This year, we are playing at the Czaplinek-Broczyno airfield. The location is new, but the regions of the extremely hospitable West Pomeranian Voivodeship are familiar! The Festival area is a land of beautiful lakes and amazing nature. If you want to find out what attractions the Czaplinek area can offer you, we invite you to a special chill and fun zone prepared by West Pomerania.

Comfortable deckchairs, a lavender field and various creative games are waiting for you.

 

Food court 

Are you looking for a chicken soup like your mum used to cook for you? Do you want to eat traditional festival potatoes with kefir? Do you need a kebab after a long night of concerts? Or maybe you don't know what a Spätzle is? You can find all these and much more (salty, sweet, savoury and certainly tasty!) in the food courts near the Academy of the Finest of Arts. With a wide selection of vegan, vegetarian and meat dishes, there will be something for everyone!  As a reminder, the TRAPER Catering Pavilion behind the Second Stage is open 24 hours a day. You will find all the information you need, as well as the menu with a price list here.



Shopping Centre

Along the airport strip you will find a shopping passage. There are many stalls where you can buy colourful festival clothes or, quite the contrary – cammo and black are also in stock. You can also get some gadgets, handicrafts, CDs, books, and board games there. Be sure to drop by the SiemaShop, where you will find unique clothes and gadgets with the logos of the 28th Pol'and'Rock Festival and the GOCC Foundation.

If, after the concert, you feel your energy levels dropping, there is, among other things, a Red Bull stand, where you can buy energy drinks. There is also the festival drugstore, where you can stock up on all sorts of medical supplies for the festival field (electrolytes, sunscreen, burn remedies, plasters, vitamins, lipsticks, or earplugs).

 

There's a lot going on, so make sure you plan your festival adventure well: taste the variety of festival unique experiences, find a moment to relax and, above all, take care of yourself. Have fun!
