Singer-Songwriter Festival Turns 30

The international OPPA music festival, to be held in Warsaw Nov. 22-30, celebrates singer-songwriters who aim higher than "cheap entertainment for the masses," as the event's organizers put it. Since it was launched in 1978, the event has grown into one of the most highly rated song festivals in Poland and the only one dedicated to the work of singers who write and compose their own songs.

Over the years, the festival has showcased performers whose names are now famous in Poland. The judges at the festival have included great songwriters and composers, while accompanying concerts have featured stars such as Paolo Conte, Georges Moustaki, Lluis Llach, Jaromir Nohavica, and Yuriy Kukin.

The festival comprises the main competition, concerts outside the competition, recitals by special guests, and a number of accompanying events. The competition is open to young artists who contend for the Jonasz Kofta Award, a trophy that helps the winner record, release and promote an album.
