Taken from the Pohoda Festival Website:
Pohoda is a music and arts festival with an international acclaim, where alternative, indie, electronica, world music & punk meet classical; alongside literature, dance, visual art, film and theatre.
“When preparing Pohoda, we try to use the same approach as when you invite someone to your home for a visit. You want them to feel good in your place, you want them to have a good programme and place to sit and sleep. You prepare good food and drinks and do everything possible to make them feel good even in the bathroom or the toilet. Then you can listen to good music, dance, watch movies, talk about the joys and challenges of the universe, discuss art — everybody what they want and how they want. We believe that our visitors can feel this approach. We, on the other hand, can certainly say that they are great guests. They create the best atmosphere we’ve experienced at festivals.” – Michal Kascak
The festival creates a unique celebration of freedom and tolerance, where the beautiful and varied cultures of the world can meet, communicate and share ideas.
Pohoda takes place on the second weekend in July in Trencin, Slovakia. Trencin is situated 120km from Bratislava and 190km north-east of Vienna. The festival is based at a former military airfield in the valley of the river Vah surrounded by three of the Western Carpathian Mountains. From a visitor’s point of view, the festival area is easy to reach and provides an ideal and generously designed area for a limited capacity of 30.000 visitors. Forget about queuing for food or toilets, cramped camping or moving around the site in large crowds – the capacity is set in a way that ensures it is comfortable and open, to match the name of the festival. (Pohoda/Slavic/: peace, ease, contentment) Pohoda was established by Michal Kascak and Mario Michna in 1997.
The first event took place at Trencin’s football grounds, with eight bands playing on one stage. In 1998 the festival moved to the Pod Sokolicami area with a dance stage added and a selection of NGO’s present for the first time. In 1999 the festival turned into a two-day event; and in 2000 Pohoda spread to the Trencin exhibition area with a further six stages, featuring literature and classical music. In 2004 Pohoda moved to Trencin airport where it has been ever since. In 2014 there were 387 performances in total, including 182 concerts across 20 stages. Amongst the artists at the festival, 29 countries were represented.
