Summer is shaping up to offer a veritable feast of festivals for music lovers, bringing three of the biggest events on the ents calendar to venues around Rzeszów.
The first, and youngest, Rzeszowski Festiwal Przestrzeni Miejskiej, focuses on architecture and urban issues through use of post-industrial spaces which have long stood empty – but are now getting a new, invigorating blast of life. The festival returns this year to its first, 2010 venue, the Hala Obrabiarek PKP railway site. The emphasis will be on native music, featuring artists such as Smolik and LUC, and including photo exhibitions, screenings, meetings with artists, workshops for children and more.
ArtDeRue is a Rzeszów group known mainly for promoting hip-hop culture promotion to a wider audience. They have been organising concerts, parties and other projects for more than ten years, working with rappers from all over Poland. On the imposing and tight programme for the June ArtDeRue festival will be acts such as Sokół&Marysia, Starosta, Włodi, Zeus, Diox & The Returners, Małpa, Miuosh, Mielzky , Tubas Składowski and Par Excellence.
After that, you’ve two weeks to catch your breath, before the fourth edition of the electro and club music NoBorder Festival. The line-up for this one is yet to be announced, but previous programmes have included artists such as Gooral, Novika, and Kamp!
