PolkaBEATS Festival in Cottbus on 16./17.08.2013

PolkaBEATS, the summer music festival, is unique thanks to its Polkability and service for a pop phenomenon that ranges from the middle of the 19th century until today.

The way polka from the barn dance, ballroom and traditional costume associations to records and radio, to club parties and open air festivals has ridden the swell of popularity for more than 160 years like a cork is phenomenal. Sometimes up, sometimes down, it always stays afloat in various different styles.

Generation after generation rediscovers polka and uses it in its own way, sometimes traditional, mellow and sometimes classic, dancing. Or loud and provocative, since punk, ska and rock’n’roll find their roots in a musical history that began with polka. Another reason why polka is ideal for mixing and varying styles, fashions and trends.

The PolkaBEATS Festival accepts the boundaries of polka, and can cross them with relish.
