Culture in Poznań

Eight concerts in eight years

Meskalina is inviting its friends over again! While the majority of the musicians in this year's lineup are Polish, the concerts won't be without a touch of Britain. 

Romantics and virtuosos

The slogan of the upcoming artistic season in the Poznań Philharmonic is this quote from Ludwig van Beethoven: "Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy."

The avant-garde woman

At times, female artists link up with male artists, not only professionally. Numerous examples of such couples can be found throughout art history. Sadly, many women in such relationships had to wait until contemporary times to emerge from the shadows of their famous husbands and be recognised by contemporary critics and art lovers. One example of such an artist is Sophie Taeuber-Arp.

The high-end experience

The September lineup features Andrzej Jagodziński performing Komeda's music, Kuba Płużek and the much-trumpeted joint project of the Kroke trio and Urna Chahar. In the following months, prepare to see Kuba Więcek, Urbaniak in tandem with Karolak, as well as Greg Osby and Mike Stern. The autumn season at the Blue Note is looking to be scorching hot!

Art in the city

Not all works of contemporary art in Poznań have been confined to galleries. Poznań's public spaces abound with extraordinary works by remarkable artists. They contribute to the city's overall image, making it distinctive and unique.

The rulers of taste

It is all about tastings, competitions, feasts, and tips for the most demanding of palates and for those in search of new culinary sensations. The National Good Taste Festival invites you to the table.

The cultural patchwork

What attracts the fans of Polish folklore and other cultures to this folk festival year after year? Certainly a chance to come face to face with living traditions: an opportunity to see them, listen to them and participate in them first hand. This year, the "Integrations" World Folk Review will be held for the nineteenth time. It is scheduled to begin on 10 August.

Shaman and Emperor at Malta - Hip Hop Festival Poznań 2019 - 9.08.2019

They are not modest. One calls himself a shaman and equates the rap scene with his church. The other is a self-proclaimed emperor. Both are actually rappers with a following of hundreds of thousands. The two rappers, Paluch and Kękę, will again enthuse crowds at Hip Hop Festival Poznań. Completing the line-up of this year's edition will be some of the biggest names in Poland's rap.

Good design at arm's reach

Design stands for luxury for some, and utility for others... Visit Poznań's Museum of Applied Arts and its post-1945 art display, which reflects the rapid social and cultural changes taking place in the post-war world.

What's Bamberger and what's Polish?

The Bambergers, who first arrived in Wielkopolska three centuries ago, are credited with many valued characteristics that contradict the hurtful popular stereotype that depicts them as uncouth simpletons. During this round-anniversary year, an effort is being made to reveal their true face.

Poznań's Art Nouveau

Floral stuccowork, wavy bannisters, decorative stained glass - these are just a few of the items you can spot on Poznań's Art Nouveau townhouses. In between glass and steel office buildings and advertisement panels, there are still flowers and other notable Art Nouveau symbols.

Tradition and modernity

Ostrów Tumski (Cathedral Island), Stary Rynek (Old Market Square)... what else is there to see? Poznań abounds with fascinating architecture - here are some of the highlights.

The festivalisation of Wielkopolska

The summer season has long ceased to give people good reason to complain about the scarcity of cultural events. Festivals are particularly abundant between July and August. Is it still true though that Wielkopolska residents need to travel far across the country to see a truly outstanding performer? Not necessarily!

A wave of waterfront concerts

The summer festival season is in full swing. Fortunately, you don't need to travel far to see prominent and amazing artists. They will all be within easy reach at the Poznań series of concerts #NaFalach, which again will be held at Lakes Malta and Strzeszynek.
