Within years, the Festival kept growing and spreading around Europe and world-wide. The Festival's strenght lies in its artistic diversity. There are classical guitar concerts, as well as flamenco, rock and jazz music. The organizers of the festival events do not forget about their youngest audience - there were concerts addressed especially to them in the  series Guitar Academy: KIDS. The senior citizens could also find reach and enjoyable program filled with concerts and picnics in the special series Guitar Academy 60+.

The Festival's great atmosphere, coupled with an excellent feel for repertoire of its artistic director, Kuropaczewski, bring to Wielkopolska Region top class musicians from all over the world, such as Guitar Quartet from Los Angeles or guitarists Manuel Barrueco and Pepe Romero. Many of those performing at the Festival became the audience's favourites, like the amazing Spanish-Greek Duo, Melis.

In this year we invited amazing young polish musicians: Jagoda Świdzińska, Kacper Dworniczak, Andrzej Grygier, Pajestka Kostecki Duo, In the final concerts in Poznań, Gniezno and Kołobrzeg will play Avi Avital, a mandolina player from Israel, nominated for a Grammy Award and Łukasz Kuropaczewski, world famous guitarist and art director of Guitar Academy Festival.
