The biggest music festival in Slovakia, POHODA, is drawing near. And you may already have plenty of questions.

Why the summer festival starts on Thursday? Who are this year's headliners? How many types of toilets there are on site? Can I bring my own food and alcohol? Can I cook there? Who are Viagra Boys? And how can #spolunapohodu (togethertopohoda) help me get to the festival?

Pohoda's international PR manager Suzanne Verschueren from Belgium popped by our studio to tell us more about how she became one the organisers and what to expect from this year's edition at Trenčín airport.

Festival starts on July 11 and ends on July 13. You can find more information here.
