Mystic Festival 2024 - Gdańsk Stocznia

Polands biggest metal festival set in the shipping yards of Gdańsk.

Mystic Festival is Poland's biggest metal festival and has been running since 1999. Set in the shipping yards of Gdansk with large cranes as the backdrop its the perfect setting for a metal festival. The festival is a fantastic excuse to explore the north of Poland, you can enjoy old town during the day and see some of the biggest metal acts in the world by night.

Some of the epic acts we covered this year include: Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari, Machine Head, Kreator, Accept, Bruce Dickinson, Body Count, Kerry King, Satyricon, Insomnium, Leprous, Lord Of The Lost, Crystal Lake, Thy Art Is Murder, 1000mods, Fear Factory and Biohazard. It's also a great opportunity to discover fantastic new acts particularly on Desert and Shrine stages - Gulalax with their poo gun and vocals that are impossible to describe, Cage Fight, Until I Wake, DOOL and Witching. Australia was represented by Thy Art Is Murder (pit of the day) and Blood Command (Nikki Lamb on vox gave a wild performance).

At Mystic you can either camp onsite or stay in town and arrive by tram. Don't you dare miss the 2025 edition!
