The Cross-Culture Warsaw Festival, initiated by the capital city’s authorities in 2005, is a presentation of the most interesting phenomena within the field of world culture and music. It is one of the biggest events of such kind in Poland, as well as in Central and Eastern Europe. During the past seven years of its existence, the Festival permanently fitted into the multi-cultural landscape of Warsaw, building its character and prestige and gathering its own loyal audience. Over 150 individual artists and groups from over 50 countries have presented their art within the Festival so far. Since the very beginning, the Festival has been organised by Stołeczna Estrada.
The main idea and mission of the Festival is to make Warsaw citizens and visitors open to the cultural variety of modern world. The Festival wants to be like Warsaw itself and like today’s world - more and more open and sensitive to cultural and artistic variety, interested in the others and interesting for the others. It wants to be an event that is continuously developing and searching.
