A huge thanks goes to all who contributed to three days full of music and experiences at The Garage. Especially to you, dear visitors, because without you, it would not make sense. We hope that The Garage left at least as good an impression on you as you left on us. We remind ourselves of the atmosphere with beautiful photos, a selection can be found here and full albums from each of the three days on our social networks.

The Garage, the smallest stage of the Pohoda festival, has its journey from M. R. Štefánik Park behind it. In the city, we will meet with it again next year. For the bands, however, The Garage is not over yet. Another opportunity it offers is an educational block with experts from the music industry. Bands will find out, for example, how to get their music on the radio, how the booking of bands for festivals goes, what recording an album entails.
