Awarded by the audience, the Golden Spinning Top is a brass statuette, which is a prize for the best performance at Woodstock Festival Poland. The history of the prize dates back to the first edition of the festival in 1995. Since 1996, it has been a tradition that the winners collect their prizes on the Main Stage of the festival, which means that they return to the festival a year after their prize-winning performance. Every lucky winner gets the chance to play at the biggest festival stage in Poland once again – by popular demand.
All the bands who performed at the Main Stage and the Second Stage are eligible to take part in the public vote. The 24th edition of the festival will feature a total of four Golden Spinning Top laureates. We will award two bands from the Main Stage – one award for Polish performers and one for the international act and two bands from the Second Stage – one for a band from Poland an one for an international band.
The vote will be held as follows:
The poll is held via a Facebook application, so in order to vote you have to be a registered Facebook user.
The poll consists of three stages:
The first stage will last until the beginning of March 2018. The second stage will last until the end of May 2018, and the final stage will last until the second part of June. After each stage, the competitors with the smallest number of votes are excluded. The rest go on to the next stage retaining the votes they have collected so far. The final stage will see 3 participants competing for the award.
You can only vote once at a given stage.
You will be able to vote again in the next stage, no matter if the previous band of your choice is still in the game or if it has been eliminated. This means that you may vote several times for the same band or decide to support a different band in each of the stages of the competition.
The winner, selected on the basis of your votes, will receive an invitation to play at Woodstock Festival Poland next year.
