About us About us About us About us

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.

Jubilant three days where the feel-good vibes are reflected by a stellar, diverse lineup.

Guests are treated like family, and there is truly something for everyone.

Derek Robertson, The Independent

Pohoda was replete with a program of art, music and activities that placed it somewhere between Latitude and Glastonbury on the content spectrum, and with a joyous ease few European events can match.

Slovakia’s biggest arts and music event, it’s well worth the trip. The easy-going festival prides itself on its laid-back crowd and well-facilitated site, which sees around 30,000 visitors a day enjoying not just music, but visual art, film, literature and theatre.

The Telegraph

An arty, eco-friendly ethos has long set this Slovakian gem apart from its brasher, more commercial Western European cousins. With tempting line-ups spanning lots of genres and affordable drinks prices, more and more Britons are discovering the festival each year.
