Coke Live Music Festival
Coming in at the end of August to make the summer seem that much longer, the Coke Live Music Festival is that one last hurrah before it's back to school (or back to the office) and out of the sun. Originally taking place on the Blonia commons, last year the festival switched locales to the massive grounds of the Polish Aviation Museum, located at Al. Jana Pawla II 39.
While some of the acts are as poppy as the soda that sponsors the event, the festival tends to keep a good balance between the mainstream and the somewhat independent but not too edgy genres, throwing in a hodgepodge of Polish bands to keep things unpredictable. 2011 looks to be a promising year for the festival, as Kayne West has signed up to headline. Editors, The Kooks, Interpol and White Lies have also agreed to perform, but several other acts are expected to be announced in the weeks leading up to the festival.
With two big stages - the Main Stage and Coke Stage - a camping area, special DJ events, and the "Coke Clinic" where you can take a break and even get a massage, those attending the two days and nights of the festival will have their hands (or should we say ears) full. Tickets are priced at 200 zloty for both days (225 with camping), or 125 for each individual day, and can be found, along with more information, at the festival's website:
