The Cieszanów Rock Festival is one of the most dynamically developing music festivals in the country, rooted in the legendary Breakout Festival. It creates its own style by combining the tradition and atmosphere of past festivals with modern communication and social engagement.


Since its inception in 2010, the Cieszanów Rock Festival has hosted many distinguished artists on its stage. With each year, the festival's lineup has grown to include more prominent names from the Polish and international music scene, attracting crowds of fans. In 2015, performances by bands such as Coma and Dżem drew throngs of fans from all over the country. The year 2018 was marked in the festival's history by exceptional concerts by the legendary Perfect and the energetic Happysad, further affirming Cieszanów's status as a must-visit spot on Poland's festival map. After the 2019 edition, the Cieszanów Rock Festival brand disappeared from the market for a while, and the festival in Cieszanów was renamed to CieszFanów Festival. This change in formula succeeded in attracting new enthusiasts for leisure in Cieszanów, accompanied by unforgettable musical emotions.


From 2020 to 2023, bands such as Łydka Grubasa, Dirty Shirt, Poparzeni Kawą Trzy, and Nocny Kochanek could be found in Cieszanów.


From the year 2024, the festival in Cieszanów has once again adopted the name Cieszanów Rock Festival. The organizers are returning to the old formula, where strong, rock music takes the lead, irresistible even to the most discerning connoisseurs.



The festival enriches its musical offer with a variety of additional attractions, including music workshops, direct meetings with artists, and entertainment and outdoor activity zones, making it an excellent place for summer relaxation. An integral part of the festival is the presence of ladies from local Rural Housewives' Circles, who traditionally feed festival participants with famous pierogi, adding a unique, regional flavor to the event. Participating in the activities of the NGO zone, CITY NGO, which attracts organizations from all over the country, is also an unforgettable experience. This zone hosts meetings with writers, judges, and even court trial simulations. It is family-friendly, just like the entire Cieszanów Rock Festival.
