Have you ever heard of Pohoda Festival? Chances are that you haven’t quite been made aware of the Slovakian bash, probably due to its geographic placement. For some reason, Eastern European festivals often fall off the critical radar despite their ability to put on events which are just as good – if not, better – than their continental counterparts. The picturesque Pohoda is one of the highlights in the European festival calendar, boasting its biggest line-up to date with names which make the sunny weekender all the more exciting – Liam Gallagher, The 1975, Mac DeMarco among them. Shali Blok spent the week in Slovakia as part of our big European Interrail Adventure, and here’s what he returned with.
