The music festival Bažant Pohoda, organised every year in Trenčín, is the greatest open-air festival in Slovakia and it belongs among the greatest in central Europe. This festival for all lovers of various music genres has been organised since 1997 in the middle of July. At present it is held at the airport in Trenčín and is visited by 25,000 people a day.
During its existence the festival has changed its name several times according to its sponsors. Only the word Pohoda, meaning well-being, remains as it is the motto of the festival. The visitors usually stay in tents on an arranged area of 150 acres.
The programme is held on several stages that are specialised according to different genres, so the music lovers can enjoy world music, rock, punk, pop, dance music, hip-hop, techno and many other genres. The visitors who prefer a more intimate atmosphere can discuss literature, watch theatre plays or folk performances.
It traditionally takes place the third weekend of July on the 15th - 17th July 2010. For more information visit the Bažant Pohoda Festival website at:
