Live Music Festival (previously known as Coke Live Music Festival) is a music festival which has been taking place in Kraków, Poland since 2006. The main organizer of the festival is the concert agency Alter Art, and until 2014 the festival's principal sponsor was the Coca-Cola Company; in April 2014, it was announced that the festival has a new sponsor, and the next edition will be organized in Summer 2015, after a one-year break.[1]

From 2006 to 2008, the festival was held at the Wisła Kraków Stadium; in 2009, its location moved to the Polish Aviation Museum airport. The festival is held in August and last two days—with the exceptions of the 2006 edition (lasting one day, in September) and the 2009 edition (three days).

Coke Live Music Festival usually features more hip-hop artists than other large Polish music festivals, such as Open'er Festival and Orange Warsaw Festival. However, in 2013 the main focus was put on mainstream rock artists and it was the first Coke Live Music Festival edition not head-lined by an American hip-hop star.

In 2009, Coke Live Music Festival was nominated in the Best Overseas Festival category at the UK Festival Awards.[2]

In 2015 festival came back with new name, Kraków Live Festival, in the new place, Błonia, and in new form, from this year festival presents more alternative music and the stages are placed in tents.

Organization of the festival[edit]

There are three kinds of tickets available for sale: two-days tickets for the whole festival, two-days tickets with campsite, and one-day tickets. Ticket are changed into wrist-band at special points (at the campsite entrance, at the main entrance to the festival and at the entrance from the direction of general parking). Band-wrists serve as proof of a ticket's ownership and are checked by security guards, they must not be removed during the entire festival, as the removal makes the wristband invalid.[3]

A tent campsite is set up next to the festival area; in 2012, it could accommodate up to 4 thousand people.[4] The campsite is only accessible to people who purchased the camping area reservation ticket.[5]
