This is a question we are very often asked : ‘is the colour of your umbrella due to being sponsored by Orange?’ The answer is NO, our only sponsors are our guests 😉 Nevertheless, we definitely recommend you to join ou the festival crowd on this sunny weekend as Kings of Leon, Imagine Dragons, Justice or Years&Years has been in top of Spotify’s search lists for a few festival seasons already and this weekend you can see them all live in Warsaw. If you would like to get to know some Polish artists see Kamp! an electro duo which has been quite a hit in European club scene for some time already or Łona and Webber – highly popular experimental hip-hop collective. The festival band allows you to use public transport for free on the date of the event.

SZTUKA ULICY – THE ART OF BUSKING

24 JUNE-2 JULYsztuka ulicy

VARIOUS LOCATIONS

Stilt walkers, gigantic puppets, dancing with fire, acrobats, buskers – the artists who perform in the streets will take over a few locations in Warsaw during two summer weekends. Street performers from Poland, Italy, Germany and Russia have a wide repertoire of the plays – from antiwar manifestos, through new interpretations of f.airy tales (who said that the stepmother has to be the villain in all stories?) to joyful expression of theiramazing skills. It’s good to show up 15-20 minutes before the the play to take a good seat on a nearby bench or wall. The VIP area is the the first row of those who sit in the pavement the closest to the artists

WARSAW SUMMER JAZZ DAYSwarsaw-summer-jazz-days-2017

6-9 JULY

SOHO FACTORY, MIŃSKA 25

Apart from indisputable legends as Branford Marsalis you will have the listen to a recent phenomena,  Kamasi Washington,  whose almost 3-hour long album ‘The Epic’ was on the top of iTunes charts in US, Russia and UK. If you would like to get the vibe of the Polish blues, do not miss the gig of SBB, band that has been touring for more than 40 years already. The venue of the festival is worth getting there at least an hour before the show to visit an amazing Neon Museum or to have a dinner in Warszawa Wschodnia, a popular restaurant in this post industrial hub.

WARSZAWA SINGERA- SINGER’S WARSAW

The Noble Prize in Literature winner, Isaack Singer was a Polish Jew, who captured the world that perished in World War II. Singer’s Warsaw Festival is an initiative by the Shalom Foundation, the aim of which is to restore, if but for a few days, the atmosphere of  the pre-war Warsaw. It’s intended to show the Yiddish culture, its excellent literature and heritage. There is some kitch in it’s decaration  but on the other hand it brings people together to celebrate Jewish culture of past and present in the area of the city that used to be noisy, crowded and full of life. Vodeville ‘one man orchestra’ Daniel Kahn, klezmer Kroke and world class cantors will perform this year. Check the detailed programme as you may attend language or culinary workshop, go for an unusual tour or attend an awesome afterparty with musicians of Yiddish folkpunk bands (sic!)
