Pohoda festival 2017

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to open a thread for Pohoda festival 2017. It's the most popular open-air multicultural event in Slovakia. Which will be held for the 21st time from Thursday 6 July to Saturday 8 July 2016. 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€ Festival area runs all the time from Thursday afternoon until Sunday morning so there is enough time to discover all the attractions. Festival is family friendly and there are many people with their children on site.


The price is 89€ with the camping included. This price lasts until beginning of 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 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.
