From 8 to 10 July 2010 in Slovakia on the flying field of the Trencin airfield will be held next music Pohoda festival. Pohoda festival, which during its short history has already earned in Slovakia the status of the main musical event of summer, in 2010 intends to comply with its reputation. Pohoda 2010 will offer viewers the performances of both popular musicians of modern rock scene and classics, which at different times earned the fame of cult groups in their directions.
As the headliners at this year's Pohoda festival will act Scissor Sisters and Leftfield. For Scissor Sisters Trencin will become another pretext to submit to the viewers their new album, Night Work, the official release of which is scheduled for June 28. As for Leftfield, performance of the British electronics at the airport of Trencin will mark the return of to the concert activity. It would fair to note that the return of Leftfield to great scene will not happen with the participation of all members. Leftfield former glory will represent only one of the leaders of the former Leftfield Neil Barnes. Another former member Paul Daly said he had no intention to return to Leftfield and plans to concentrate on his solo career.
Among the participants of the Pohoda festival are traditionally broadly represented teams of the musical theater of the Balkans. In Trencin "Balkans" are headed by the Balkan Xpress Soundsistema and All Star RefjúdÅ¾í Band.
Among current performers of Pohoda 2010 are worth noting aerial fellows Sigur Ros Icelandic group Mum and frisky young guys Klaxons.
Pohoda Festival is held in Slovakia since 1997. Originally a local event for the Slovak groups eventually Pohoda escalated into a massive event, bringing together the stars of contemporary music. The last few years the number of spectators at the festival was about 30 thousand people. Official sponsor of the festival in Trencin is brewing company Zlatý BaÅ¾ant.
In 2009, the festival has become a place of tragedy. Then, because of the collapse of the tent, 1 person was killed and 40 injured.
