The biggest audience was at The Prodigy concert. During the Gentleman & The Evolution’s show a great number of fans began to gather and all of them waited for the main star. Exceptionally, the stage has to be fenced in as The Prodigy requested. Jerzy Owsiak, festival creator,  objected to this. He said that putting bariers beetwen public and artists came in conflict with the values of Woodstock festival, but eventually he complied. The hits  “Breathe”, “Poison”, “Firestarter” and “Smack My Bitch Up”  were sung. The group went to the stage protected by bodyguards, played and left.

Łąki Łan Apteka performed after The Prodigy a special surprise concert and recorded a live DVD. Jerzy Owsiak said he was glad that she was the star who sang at the end of  Polish Woodstock 2011.

Airbourne performed a great show and were cheered by the public. Enej and Arka Noego, two Golden Spinning winners, were also enthusiasticly applauded. Dog Eat Dog’s singer John Connor played wearing a T-shirt of Poland national men’s ice hockey team and he also showed an Woodstock special T-shirt. Large audience danced, sang and listened to the hits “Who’s the king” ,  “No Fronts”.

On Saturday, August, 6, Przystanek Republika concert was performed by Grzegorza Ciechowskiego an his guests: Titus (Acid Drinkers), Kasia Kowalska, Ania Dąbrowska, Tomek Makowiecki, Glaca (Sweet Noise), Maciej Silski, Lipa (Lipali, Illusion), Kobra (Kobranocka).


 Przystanek Woodstock  (polish for “Woodstock Bus Stop”) was inspired by and named after the Woodstock Festival, that was held in August 1969, over 40 years ago.
Polish Woodstock 2011  edition was quite peaceful, there were some troubles regarding landing transport, but besides these, the concert-goers were delighted. 

Sonia is the heart and the artist of the team. She loves art and all that it implies. As Sonia says, good music, a well directed movie, or attending a music or film festival melts people’s heart and make them better. She is great at painting and photography. Working on scrapbooks is her favorite activity.
