Yves Tumor and its band at Pohoda 2021

Yves Tumor and its band at Pohoda 2021

Another re-confirmed name of Pohoda 2021 is the American producer of experimental electronic music Yves Tumor and its band. His latest albums Heaven to a Tortured Mind and Safe in the Hands have reached several selections of the best albums of the year. As xlr8r wrote:: “Yves Tumor set the benchmark extremely high for experimental music. It was difficult to place him into any genre; shoegaze, trip-hop, noise, alt-rock, and pop all come to mind. It’s hard to think of a more memorable and original album this year.” → read more

Squid at Pohoda 2021

“It is like if LCD Soundsystem attempted to make a B-52’s song.”—this is how portal Stereogum described the song “The Cleaner” by the rising star from Brighton, band Squid. They came to the attention of media with the great EP Town Center, which was praised also by Pitchfork, DIY, The Guardian, and NME, saying that it is a wonderfully catchy recording by one of the most exciting current British bands. The BBC seconded that with a strong rotation and inclusion of the song in the BBC Sound of 2020 shortlist.  → read more

Lola Marsh tour rescheduled to February 2021

Due to the still complicated situation in connection with the pandemic, the management of the band Lola Marsh decided to reschedule the Central European tour of the band from this September to February 2021. The situation is also made more complex by the fact that Israel is still not on the EU's list of safe countries. In any case, the band can't wait to return to Slovakia and perform live the great songs from their new album Someday Tomorrow Maybe.

Pohoda in the Air was great, but we want to have it back on the ground as soon as possible

Pohoda in the Air was great, but we want to have it back on the ground as soon as possible

The first year of the Pohoda in the Air festival could not have turned out better. The festival was filled with the tremendous commitment of all those who took part in it and the fantastic approach of the artists with which they responded to this challenge; it also received countless support reactions from the spectators. Michal Kaščák says about the festival: “Thanks to the creativity of many people, Pohoda in the Air was a great artistic and technical adventure. It became a three-day installation, in which the empty airport was filled with culture in its various forms—from music through performances, visual arts, literature, and film to debates. I think taking this direction was a fortunate decision. Amazing things were created; we received an intense feedback from the spectators, we met great people, real enthusiasts and professionals in their fields, we learned a lot of new things. I am convinced that thanks to the creativity combined with consistency, trust, and support of many people, we have managed to do an exceptional thing.”   → read more
