The idea

This unusual, pandemic time has been going on for so long that you sometimes get the impression that it has always been so. That we always wear masks, we don't meet, we don't hug each other. We don't go to concerts.

On the other hand, we are tightening the ties in our nuclear families, we are looking for alternative solutions for spending free time, we have moved to nature.

We have given voice to nature. It has become our culture.

This year's festival - Ethniesy - will be held for the eighth time. It is a postponed event, an afterimage of last year, more modest, due to restrictions, but very much awaited and loved. We will invite you  to listen to and see bands that speak the language of nature. Which these nature represent.

Stay with us. Let's wake up and start spring together. Spring is life, may life prevail this year. We wish you a lot of health and love. And enjoy meeting us!
