The Festival is organized by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity Foundation.

There are cheap Easyjet flights to Berlin (less than 100 kms from where the event takes place) from many locations in Europe. This great Polish festival is not dissimilar in some ways to Glastonbury Festival in Somerset but happening in Poland and totally FREE of any cost!
