Perhaps the most underrated line-up of the year: Pohoda 2020

Nothing more fun than comparing festival line-up, we think at Festileaks. Pohoda Festival in Slovakia catches our eye already repeatedly this year. At Pohoda there  will be this summer a big collection of high rated names. And that’s impressive.

So although the poster of the Slovak festival may not be the biggest star at first glance, it is certainly special. Not only when you look at how the festival has grown, but also at the many authentic acts that are there. And a festival where even the artists have such a good time that they want to go there every year, can’t that only be a big party?
