Dear Friends of the EtnoKraków/Rozstaje Festival,
Meeting, dialogue, openness – in the realm of music, art, and above all: human interactions – are the fundamental values that have been guiding the development of the EtnoKraków/Rozstaje festival for over twenty years.
The new criterion that we have been signaling for several years, and which now takes on special importance, is co-responsibility: for each other on an individual and global scale, as well as for the environment in which we live and which we co-create. The festival's previous mission - artistic and educational - should now be permanently integrated with another equally important task: building empathy on a societal scale.
We have moved the date of this year's edition to the second half of August. We will confirm the date as soon as it becomes possible, and if we are certain that the festival can take place in conditions that are safe for everyone. We also do not rule out the possibility of a different, later date and a new festival format adapted to the circumstances.
With wishes for good health and another (soon) meeting at Rozstaje.
In 'real life' and online. In (Etno)Kraków and (Eco)Kraków.
Director of the EtnoKraków/Rozstaje Festival
