This year Woodstock Festival Poland line-up has a distinct jazz flavour. There are late night jazz sessions at the AFA Night Stage featuring some of the best-known names in Polish jazz and presenting the work of promising artists.
Michał Urbaniak is a jazz musician who plays violin, lyricon, and saxophone. Never shying away from experimentation, his trademark style blends folk, rhythm and blues, hip-hop with symphonic music and jazz.
Urbanator Project debuted in 1994 with the release of the self-titled record. With guest performances by Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker and Marcus Miller it became a milestone in the evolution of contemporary jazz music. Musicians performed at some of the most famous venues and festivals in the world: Ronnie Scott in London, Blues Alley in Washington, Bottom Line in New York, New Port Jazz Festival, Baker’s Keybords Launge in Detroit, West End in Chicago, Blue Note Tokyo and Osaka.

I grew up on music films. First, there was a black & white film about the Beatles, which has shaped my imagination and musical and visual sensitivity. Music films have inspired my work and influenced the way I see the world.
Punk's Not Dead! It is live and kicking and as vicious and rebellious as ever - and is coming to Woodstock Festival Poland next summer.
