The Vistula Folk Festival in P這ck, a city around 100 kilometers northwest of Warsaw, kicks off Aug. 21 with Indonesian dance and theater. This year’s highlights also include a colorful performance by Mexico’s Ballet Folkl鏎ico de Tamaulipas and a concert by the Lipovec group from Slovakia.

The Vistula Folk Festival, the largest folk event in Poland, will take place over four days until Aug. 25. Polish folk performers will share the stage with guests from all around the world. This year’s Polish acts will include famous bands Drewutnia and Dikanda and in total, festival audiences will see over 200 bands and ensembles on four stages.

The S1 Bisnis Prasetiya Mulya Group from Indonesia promote Indonesian culture by incorporating a variety of traditional performing arts, such as dance, song and theater, into their shows. Their colorful outfits and exotic tunes make the group a hit everywhere they perform, from Turkey to France and from Switzerland to Singapore. The group like to describe their shows as a bridge between the traditional and the latest trends.

This year’s festival highlights also include Ballet Folkl鏎ico de Tamaulipas from Mexico. Formed in 1984, the group has a reputation as masters of their art. The secret behind their artistry is hard work, almost military discipline and a love of Mexican folk dance passed on from generation to generation. In Europe, the group have proved a hit at folk festivals in Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal. Everywhere they go, they impress audiences with captivating music and fantastic outfits which demonstrate the skill of Mexican designers and show how strong and vital local traditions are in Mexico.

Other Vistula Folk Festival attractions will include picnics, processions in the streets of P這ck and jam sessions. The performers from abroad will introduce festival audiences to many different traditions, folk crafts and regional products and food.
