  1. Pohoda festival 2018

    The festival is 1,5h train ride from Bratislava and it will send you back 6 euro. You can also continue with the train to see Tatra Mountains if you would be interested. There is beautiful medieval castle overlooking the festival area so you can see Slovakia in many ways. Bjork definitely isn’t coming back for this year, it's too soon but NIN are good fit for the festival they were suggested couple times before and they should be around so there is a decent chance to see them. Sadly LCD soundsystem aren´t very popular in Slovakia, sadly because I´m huge fan. Last year a similar size festival in Czech Republic tried to book them but they were too expensive so they didn´t come in the end. But St. Vincent isn´t cheap or popular so you never know. I would expect mid-size bands from Spanish festivals like Madcool or NOS alive, because this year they are happening one week before Pohoda. It won´t sell out soon so wait until like end of January when the lineup starts shaping up. There is shopping center in walking distance or Trencin city center accessible in like 15min by bus or taxi for like 5 euro where you can find everything. But you can buy groceries, fruits and everything you need except hard liquor in the area, there is also bakery every year. Few years ago there was a small Tesco store built in the festival area but they are no longer a sponsor. I also suggest you to buy a prep itched tent when it comes to sale it's cheaper than buying extra airplane luggage and much more comfortable than carrying your own.

  3. Hi, I would like to open a thread for Pohoda festival 2018. It's the most popular open-air multicultural event in Slovakia. Which will be held for the 22nd time from Thursday 5 July to Saturday 7 July 2018. Beside alternative, indie, electronic, world music, punk and classical music you can find also a lot of literature, dance, visual art, film and theatre events. Beside concerts there are man attractions and whole airport area is beautifully decorated with contemporary art, flags, pianos, sunflowers etc. Growing number of foreigners attend this festival, all the announcements and information are provided in English and most of the festival attendants speak English. Festival is really cheap if you compare it to Western festivals or even festivals in Poland or Austria. You only have to pay the ticket price, camping, showers and other facilities are free. Beer costs around 1.3€ and a meal 3€-5€. Specific thing is that festival area runs all the time from Thursday afternoon until Sunday morning and is connected with camping area so there is enough time to discover all the attractions without much walking. Festival is family friendly and there are many people with their children on site. Ticket price is 89€ with the camping included. This price lasts until about beginning of month May, after that it changes to 99€. Tickets and accommodation can be bought at https://www.pohodafestival.sk/en/tickets Capacity of the festival is 30 000 people and it was sold out before the festival started in recent years. There will also be an option to buy pre-set tent, cottage or hotel room later. The closest airports to Pohoda are in Bratislava or Vienna then you’ll take train or bus to Trencin or Brno airport in Czech republic and then you’ll take bus to Trencin. If you have any questions don't hesitate to post in this thread. I’m just a fan of this festival and I would like if more people invite Pohoda and could feel the great atmosphere it has.

    It's hard to tell how long it takes to get there because it depends on the size of the crowd going your direction it's a big festilval there will be more than 100 thousand people for Radiohead so it will take some time to get off site. Firstly you will have to wait until you get on the bus from site to Gdynia and then you can go by SKM or find taxi to Sopot. I think there is Uber available but just few cars it's a small city.

    No cash on site. You can obtain and charge the wristband with zloty in campsite or in the main area but last time there were huge lines so I advise against it. I had my card from Slovakia (past 3 years) and I payed with it everywhere. No lines. I don't have any conversion fee on my card, just the exchange rate is a little bit worse than the rate i Would get if I changed my money beforehand but nothing worth mentioning. Depends on your card.
  11. Open'er festival 2017

    MasterCard credit/debit card with contactless payments activated is the best way.

    SKM ticket is the best option for you. It´s valid for trains only but they run often. There are free buses runing between the festival and main station (20-30min). They are very crowded in the night so you have to wait for them and it takes a lot of walking 1 - 1,5 km from the stage area to the bus stop (depends if you are in the tent or the main stage). It´s pointless to check the precise times of departure because when you get to the station depends on the amount of people going your direction. Bus station and train station are next to each other. I don´t think there are more trains during the festival there is enough place for everyone. I´ve never used the buses so I can´t help you with them. If you have mastercard credit/debit card you can use it for paying everywhere at the festival it doesn´t have to be polish. Bands you can purchase at the festival or tent area where you can charge them with cash. I don´t think you can obtain or charge them in Gdynia. I would advice you to stay in the tent area or Gdynia not the Sopot area because it will take a lot of traveling to get back and forth.
