This year there will be one more exciting feature of the festival for you – The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity International Village.
What’s that – you may ask...
GOCC International Village is an idea that was born during the II International GOCC Collection Centre Congress in Brussels. You can read our article about the Congress to find out more. During that time international representants of GOCC Collection Centres become close friends and decided to go to the Pol’and’Rock Festival together. The idea is not only about international integration. It is also a place where they can meet you - so, for all those who would like to find out more about Grand Finales abroad and how they are organised. You will have an opportunity to talk with members of the GOCC Collection Centers around the world or even join one of the teams who organise this amazing event which is 27. GOCC Finale.
Additionally, they will have a few interesting meetings with artists who become their friends after performing at GOCC Finales in their countries. If you’d like to visit and have “coffee and cake” with members of the International GOCC Collection Centers you may meet there one of your idols.
You can find The International GOCC Village going from the Main Stage towards the AFA area. Look for them on the left side of the road. You are very welcome to join them for creative conversations in a great company.
Our charity holds the 24th edition of the Most Beautiful Festival in the World! The time has come for our festival to emerge under a new, genuine name. Join us in Kostzyn nad Odrą in August to experience an event like no other!
