“When preparing Pohoda, we try to use the same approach as when you invite someone to your home for a visit. You want them to feel good in your place, you want them to have a good programme and place to sit and sleep. You prepare good food and drinks and do everything possible to make them feel good even in the bathroom or the toilet,” composer and festival organizer Michal Kaščák explained. “Then you can listen to good music, dance, watch movies, talk about the joys and challenges of the universe, discuss art — everybody what they want and how they want. We believe that our visitors can feel this approach. We, on the other hand, can certainly say that they are great guests. They create the best atmosphere we’ve experienced at festivals.”
Yorke released the project Anima earlier this year. The performer is currently set to hold the Modern Boxes tour throughout 2020. Earlier this year the performer released a retro-animated music video for the song “Last I Heard (…He Was Circling The Drain).”
