Can we make Castle Party 2017 even bigger and better than before? Sure, we can! Next year’s Castle Party Festival will take place between July 13 and 16 in Bolkow (south-west Poland). As always, there will be all music covered that the dark scene has to offer. From Gothic to EBM, from medieval to Industrial, from Dark Ambient to Apocalyptic Pop, from Post Punk to Symphonic Metal. Just anything. You name it. Based in a small town in South-West Poland, with gigs taking place in a beautiful, medieval Castle and… in a former church, the Castle Party is your new destination on a must-visit festivals’ map this summer!
The Castle Party is more than just a music festival – it’s a family gathering of all those that you can call Goths from all around the world. Have you ever thought of being part of a Gothic Pool Party? Stayed in a town full of people dressed like you and thinking like you – a town that never sleeps? Does a pint of beer for less than a pound appeal to you? Are you a fan of the darker sounds? Then the Castle Party is definitely a place for you to visit this summer! The Festival has been going for over 20 years. In the past, we had headliners such as MOONSPELL, LACRIMOSA, PARADISE LOST, NEW MODEL ARMY, FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM!!
In 2017, we have TIAMAT and MY DYING BRIDE headlining. The other acts confirmed so far are:
• DIARY OF DREAMS
• VIVE LA FETE
• SUICIDE COMMANDO
• IN STRICT CONFIDENCE: Vintage Show
• A SPLIT-SECOND
• STAR INDUSTRY
• AGENT SIDE GRINDER

Our regular festival-goers often offer lifts – just look at the Castle Party forum! Accommodation-wise – there is a campsite for less than two pints of beer in your local pub a night (with showers, electricity plug, a swimming pool and a 24/7 pub with goth DJs), there are also private flats/rooms going really cheap, private campsites – so you will be spoilt for choice!!
Castle Party is not just gigs at the Castle or in the church. For those four days, the usually sleepy town of Bolkow never sleeps – there are afterparties until dawn, pool parties, drinking, partying at the town square, dressing up to impress, 24/7 Party at the campsite.
