About the 32nd Grand Finale 

 

The 32nd Grand Finale will be organized on 28 January 2024. The main objective of this year's fundraiser is “Post-pandemic lungs.” This means that our goal is to purchase medical equipment for the diagnosis, monitoring, and rehabilitation of pulmonary diseases in both children and adults. The motto for this year's event is: We're all in tune! 

The Grand Finale concert stage and the GOCC's TV studio in Warsaw will be located at the PGE Narodowy meadows.
