The revolutionary concept of La Folle Journée consists in a dizzying number of short concerts in the span of a few days with an appealing repertoire and affordable ticket prices. All of that attracts large crowds of new listeners to the concert halls in a spectacular fashion. Every year, thousands of people gather in Teatr Wielki - The Polish Opera on the last weekend of September to listen to concerts of their choice from dozens of available events.The festival has gained the reputation of the biggest classical music feast in Poland. Many regular and occasional concertgoers spend the whole year waiting for it.
It is the only festival in the country that combines symphonic and chamber concerts performed by the brightest stars of classical music with a broad educational repertoire that gathers together the most gifted young musicians from across Poland. Every year, around 1000 artists perform during the festival and are listened to by nearly 40 000 audience members.
La Folle Journée de Varsovie is supported financially by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland. The festival is organised in association with the National Centre for Culture, Poland.
