And now, for something completely different: a video documenting the last ever Woodstock Poland festival (and I say “the last one” because the next edition was renamed to “Pol’and’rock” and the future of the whole project is unknown) – the biggest free of charge open air music gig in the world.

I być może najpiękniejszą:) Sierpień 2017, Kostrzyn nad Odrą

So addictive that I feel obliged to go back there and see all those things that I didn’t have enough time to see. And I encoutage you to go there as soon as you can, before it gets covered with asphalt, „civilized” and the friendly locals start pursuing the material wealth.
