After a long anticipation, it was worth waiting to finally enter the fields of Silesian Park. Thousands of festivalgoers could enjoy, for four days that passed quickly, pure fun and joy. Fest Festival 2021 took place between 11 and 14 of August 2021 in Chorzów, Poland.
Fest Festival is a new festival that only had one edition in 2019, that was highly acclaimed by festivalgoers. For this reason, this 2021 edition was 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 were Alan Walker, Paul Kalkbrenner, Kygo, James Bay and Kensington.
The party began from the festival’s first steps, because the first stage from the entrance is the Main Stage. The regular shows at this stage starts the second day. Polish artists such as Kwiat Jabłoni, Krzysztof Zalewski or PRO8L3M warm up the fans before the performances from DJs Alan Walker, Paul Kalkbrenner and Kygo, who gathered the biggest amount of fans at this Fest Festival’s edition.
After a few walks away from the Main Stage, there is Silesia Stage. This one is located besides the forest and offers a very intimate feeling. There was a chance to really connect with the artists. The stage is surrounded by meadow, so why not going with a blanket and get some rest while listening to the music? Silesia Stage is characteristic for its little lights bulbs on the sides of the stage, which gives a magical effect. This stage focus on electronic music, where Aurora, Mura Masa and Jan Blomqvist played their amazing shows.
The next stage is the Arena Stage, which is known for having the best lightings. Across the stage, we can see huge light balls, which moves down to the rhythm of the music. Arena Stage presents a variety of genres including EDM, pop, rock or indie. The party at this stage lasts until the morning as the closing acts at each day had famous DJs Tchami, Purple Disco Machine, Kungs, Bakermat and Robin Schulz.
The opposite Tent Stage is all taken over from rappers! This pink tent gathered fans from the first minutes. On this stage, festivalgoers can spot the biggest moshpits that didn’t differ from the ones, you can spot at metal concerts, rapper entering the stage on motorcycle or even flame throwers! Mostly, at Tent Stage Polish rappers gets to perform, but you can have the chance to see American rapper Princess Nokia and the amazing Tommy Cash.
Large Dance Circle
Two years ago, Large Dance Circle was the central point of the park’s festival zone which included the two smaller dance circles and several arbors. Therefore, due to renovations, the stages needed to be transferred. Large Dance Circle is secluded from the main festival area. The only way to access is it after a walk through the forest with lighted corridors. We feel like we enter another world-techno world. This year, there were four special stages with electronic music. The Dance Circle was responsible for techno, in Raban Stage bits dominate at a rate above 175 beats per minute, on the Astral Stage, which we mentioned before, with the best psy trance music and Eden Stage.
