Sztywny Pal Azji is a band with an impressive artistic history with its hits incorporated into the top Polish rock songs and dates back to 1986 when a group of friends instead of touring at the seaside promenades went to the stage of the Rock Music Festival in Jarocin.
Both jury and the audience were amazed at their show. And “Nasze reggae” [“Our reggae”] piece with its catchy tune became the informal theme of the festival.
A year later in 1987, they released their first album “Europa i Azja” [Eng. "Europe & Asia"] filled with, as it later turned out, bangers.
The band keeps on rocking up to this date in its original form.

The crowd of people with sunflowers in their hands repeated the words of the festival oath after Jurek Owsiak. This means only one thing – the 28th Pol'and'Rock Festival has officially begun!
For the eleventh time, Szymon Chwalisz custom painted a rock'and'roll guitar for The Most Beautiful Festival in the World! This time, it is particularly special, as it is double neck – and that also means a double surface for airbrushing!
