“Despite the pandemic, we have a few mega surprises for you that will come to this festival from around the world. And as we always do, we play what we like!" - Jurek Owsiak, the originator of the Most Beautiful Festival in the World and the conductor of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity
We move among the music and bands we like. Having my broadcast in Antyradio, I know what music my listeners listen to and in which circles it is best perceived at. And this is the type of music we like to listen to.
Jurek Owsiak, the originator of the Pol'and'Rock Festival
During COVID, of course, we’ve reached out to our friends. This includes the well-known band TABU, which will start the festival on Thursday. It is also the band Kroke, to which we come back after many years, because they play masterful, beautiful klezmer music. It's Raz Dwa Trzy - they played with us several times, but we think they will sound extra special this year. Also Renata Przemyk, who gave a great concert two years ago, BOKKA, the band Dubioza Kolektiv, which we bring from the Balkans, and Hańba !, who will be with us for the first time and play Silesian street music. In addition, Kapela ze Wsi Warszawa, which will play at the Academy of the Finest of Arts, and jazz programmed together with Jazz Forum.

“We are rummagers. We spend a lot of time on the Internet, watching what is happening in the world, catching music that surprises us, we like it a lot, whether it comes from Mexico, the United States, France, Spain or Italy. People already know about our festival. They are often very happy that we speak to them and we want to share such music.”
