These are the last preparations – artists are singing, bands are tuning their instruments and music lovers all over Poland are waiting for a modern and spectacular show at the Forest Opera. On Monday evening, the first concert of the Top of the Top Sopot Festival 2023. These are four days of a musical festival, during which we will be able to admire outstanding artists from Poland and abroad.
– Forest Opera? We’ve played here dozens of times. Each subsequent one is extraordinary – said Waldemar Tkaczyk from the Kombi team on Monday morning. Together with Grzegorz Skawiński, they answered the most important question – how to captivate the audience at the Forest Opera and those gathered in front of the TV sets. – My friend and I are already 69 years old, I think we can answer this question as seniors of the scene. You have to be honest with yourself and with the viewers, fans, listeners. I would be lying if I said that we do it only for the fans, it’s a great pleasure for us – said Grzegorz Skawiński.
– You also have to compose good songs – added Waldemar Tkaczyk.
There will be no shortage of good songs at the Top of the Top Sopot Festival 2023. On the first day – as part of the I Dance concert – there will be performances by performers who will captivate those gathered in Sopot and in front of TV sets to dance. Apart from the band Kombi, the legend of Polish rock – Muniek Staszczyk with the band T. Love will appear on the stage. You will also be able to see and listen to, among others, Krzysztof Zalewski, Natalia Przybysz, Sylwia Grzeszczak, Margaret and Michał Szpak, accompanied by the Music Everywhere choir, with whom our presenters had the opportunity to talk before the first concerts.
– It’s a great honor. Fortunately, it is not the first time that we have the opportunity to appear at such a great event. The challenge is that each of the fantastic artists invited to the festival has little time to captivate the audience. A lot depends on how much you can work out and polish on trials. However, these are very encouraging – emphasized the artists on TVN24.
Our journalists conducted the interview on the beach in Sopot, because all day long on stage, those who will shine on stage warmed up their vocal apparatuses. On stage, the song “Boskie Buenos” was performed by Natalia Przybysz with Krzysztof Zalewski. Surprises and a special selection of songs are also announced by other stars.
Four days, four concerts
The second concert will take place in the rhythms of summer under the slogan “Summer Vibes”. The most popular songs in holiday arrangements will be presented by, among others: Kayah, Agnieszka Chylińska, Ewa Farna, Cleo and Blue Café. However, this is not the end of the attractions. On Tuesday, the Amber Nightingale Award – the most prestigious statuette of the Polish music industry – will be competed by nominated performers who will present their works published in the last twelve months: Effy, Daria ze Śląska, Aden Foyer, Bovska, Kwiat Jabłoni, Paula Roma and Rubens.
The third concert is “Great Moments”. The event will bring many surprising surprises. On stage you will be able to admire, among others, Agnieszka Chylińska, Nosowska, Ralph Kaminski, Natalia Szroeder and Natalia Nykiel.
The last of the concerts is “Magic Words” – the audience gathered in the amphitheater and in front of the TV sets will be able to listen to unique, timeless melodies. They will all be presented in non-obvious, classy performances. The stars of the fourth day of the festival will include: Mrozu, Kayah, Kortez, Andrzej Piaseczny, Ewa Bem, Igor Herbut, Prońko, Michał Bajor, Alicja Majewska and Małgorzata Ostrowska.
