The crowd of people with sunflowers in their hands repeated the words of the festival oath after Jurek Owsiak, and Mr Roman Polanski whistled the opening of the festival. This means only one thing – the 28th Pol'and'Rock Festival has officially begun!
Dears, remember – we live on the same land, we live on the same planet Earth. And this land is also the land [that we share] these days, when we look so pretty, so wonderfully. This is Poland! Let’s take care of it, and let’s tell others that this is the life we should live, together. May we be kind, caring and friendly to each other! This country is built of us, of people just like you. I love you so very much for that!
