The most relaxed festival there is: Pohoda 2021

The broadly oriented and authentic Pohoda, which means ‘peace’ in Slovak, is known as the most popular festival of Slovakia. And not without reason: at Pohoda the atmosphere is sublime, the audience very diverse and the line-up always unique and a tad alternative.

For three days of the year, the abandoned Trencin airport turns into an ideal mini world with not only good music and nice people, but also hardly any queues or mess on the ground. While there is more than enough space and the festival always sells out, the organization is applauded for its choice to firmly hold on to a maximum of 30,000 visitors. Pohoda’s music genres vary from rock to hip hop and from electronic to world music. Its colourful decoration, extensive sideprogram, low prices and focus on sustainability add up to a great experience for all.
