The wait during over a year and a half for Fest Festival 2021 was worth. In less than a month, festival goers will (finally) enter the fields of Silesian Park in the center of Chorzów, Poland. Despite the pandemic, the Polish festival manage to find a solution and organise the event, which will take place between 11 to 14 August 2021.
Fest Festival is a quite new festival as it had one edition in 2019. Even though, the first edition was highly acclaimed by festival goers. For this reason, this 2021 edition is extended from two to four days. The Polish festival is located in the beautiful green Silesian Park in the center of Chorzów. During this year’s edition headliners are Alan Walker, Paul Kalkbrenner, Kygo, James Bay and Nothing But Thieves.
It is worth knowing that the name of the festival is not only a shortcut from the word “festival”. Indeed, it’s also taken from local Silesian dialect. The word “fest” in Silesian means something good and fine as a noun and when it is an adjective, it means “very”.
