Pohoda 2019 will also feature the Siberian-Saint Petersburg avant-garde band Shortparis. Their music is somewhere between dark electro, post-punk or noise; in the live version, in addition, combined with performative-theatrical acts.

Urpiner to be the main beer partner of Pohoda for the fourth time

The 23rd Pohoda will continue to cooperate with Banská Bystrica-based brewery Urpiner which is going to be our main beer partner for the fourth time. After having supported the Slovak stars abroad at ESNS 2019, Urpiner is once again helping us to bring foreign stars to Slovakia. Big beer from a small brewery gained our visitors’ favour right during the first year. Every year Urpiner comes with a wide range of its products and beer specials, with the opportunity to try over ten types of beer in their zone. The Beergate, which offered domestic craft beers, was also a favourite spot of the festival and the brewery received a Beer Act of the Year Award for it. In addition to beer, they bring many interesting activities to festival every year as well as the popular self-service beer vending machines. Urpiner people have already announced they’ll bring many innovations to this year's festival which will be discussed in more detail on our website and Facebook. → read more
