Pohoda festival gets going today

POHODA, Slovakia’s biggest open air music and multi-media festival, starts in Trenčín today.

The ninth year of Pohoda, which means “contentment” or “peace” in Slovak, will this year feature more than 100 artists from 20 countries, according to the SITA news agency.

Organizers expect over 20,000 people to come to the festival, which will rock-and-roll until Sunday morning at Trenčín’s airport. Last year over 23,000 people enjoyed the sounds and atmosphere at Pohoda.

Performances will be held on eight stages. Stars appearing at Pohoda this year include British outfits The Prodigy and the Asian Dub Foundation and US rockers Garbage, as well as Cuban songstress Omara Portuondo.
