HEADLINERS

 

Venflon - one of the winners of Woodstock Festival Poland Preliminaries 2015 

The band has been touring and recording since 2003: they have released six albums and played hundreds of great shows. They play metal music with a twist - their sounds are very melodic, influenced by grunge and stoner metal. 

 

 

BeMy - one of the winners of Woodstock Festival Poland Preliminaries 2014 

BeMy is a band formed by two brothers: Mattia and Elie Rosinki. Born and raised in France they decided to develop their musical passion and pursue musical education in London. Thanks to their perserverance and talent they have won in a few talent shows and played at Woodstock Festival Poland in 2015.  

 

 

 

Jelonek 

There is really no need to introduce Jelonek to the audience in Poland. This solo project, created by violinist Michał Jelonek, is all about instrumental music with a strong emphasis on string instruments such as violins and cellos, which are often offset by powerful rock-inspired drums and guitars. Jelonek is known for his re-imagining of classical music, giving new, contemporary twist to pieces by Chopin, Paganini, Rossini or Vivaldi.
