Nocny Kochanek was so eagerly awaited that fans gate crashed their sound check and sang their songs acapella when it finished.  If that isn't a serious commitment I honestly don't know what is!

Even Jurek Owsiak joined in the singing intro to „Poniedziałek” while announcing the band. That was the song that started the concert and crowd joined in straight away starting the longest singalong in the history of the festival. 

Nocny Kochanek might seem like a bit of an ironic joke, yet their stage performances are totally professional. Krzysztof Sokołowski's unique vocal, guitarist's virtuosity and galloping drums with a touch of irony and some well played 80s nostalgia.

Nocny Kochanek's music is, of course, a tribute to heavy metal with Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, Helloween, Scorpions and t Black Sabbath being very clear influences. Mixed together, with the witty humour added it's a powerhouse of a concert!

The band was clearly taken aback by the public's reaction - Woodstock's crowd loved them and it showed! 

Nocny Kochanek is a Polish heavy metal band formed in Warsaw in and consists of Artur Pochwała (bass), Robert Kazanowski (guitar), Arkadiusz Cieśla (guitar), Krzysztof Sokołowski (vocal), Tomasz Nachyła (drums).
