Born in Australia and living in Los Angeles singer masterfully magnetizes and attracts the audience with his intense, passionate music. After the breakthrough success of the minimalist album “Berlin” in 2013, RY X’s concerts are selling out all over Europe, the United States and Australia. Raised in the coastal community of Angourie, he left home as a 17-year-old boy obsessed with grunge music with a surfboard under his arm. However, RY X feels great writing lyrics for both electronic beats as well as extremely delicate, acoustic and intimate songs to the sounds of an acoustic guitar, through composing psychedelic folk. – “I feel responsible for never releasing an album devoid of authenticity, in which I would prefer commercial success to the willingness to communicate with my heart and the hearts of my audience” – emphasizes the artist.
Slinky. Stylish. Sexy. Balthazar’s newfound loucheness suits them well. If they had their alternative sound, they would be best expressed by songs from albums such as ‘Fever’ and the latest ‘Sand’ (2021). Thanks to this release the group has established itself as the king of alternative pop, which also reigns supreme in the border land of soul. The latest album (also created in part during the pandemic) is a kind of taking the first steps in unknown places, and perhaps this is where you can hear a breath of freshness, motivation and youthful energy, similar to the one that can be remembered back in 2010, when the group released the very first album called ‘Applause’.

LONA I WEBBER + THE PIMPS

In 2017, Łona has been awarded the title of Youth Ambassador of the Polish Language by the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN). Throughout the years, he keeps on astonishing his listeners with the unique nature of his work – starting with his artistic vision of phone call with God (the interpretation of this song was one of the topics for the Baccalaureate exam on Polish language), through ‘conversation’ with cuts (scratches based on fragments of other artists‘ tracks), to rapping without the use of diacritical marks specific for Polish language, affecting the pronunciation (which was sort of a diss on the internet users who don’t use these marks properly).

What if Salt Wave Festival lasted all week?Join us for our first trip together, the Salt Wave Camp. The week before the Festival starts, you can enjoy the kitesurfing under the supervision of qualified staff, join our daily sunset yoga routine and explore the undiscovered wonders of the Hel Peninsula. Sunny days and hot nights. Salty waves of the Baltic Sea and summer wind on the Bay of Puck.
Let’s chill out on the camping site and have fun at the Festival!
Salt Wave Festival has been held on the Hel Peninsula for several seasons. This boutique event was created for those who appreciate a spirit of relaxation and cosiness. What makes Salt Wave Festival unique among many other similar events is its charming location – the surrounding of the Baltic Sea, fragrant forests and sandy beaches. Despite its small scale, the Festival is definitely not a niche event. Two Festival’s days are full of chillout sounds and sparkling with the latest trends. It’s our emotional farewell to summer.
This year, we come back to the Baltic Sea with new sounds, certain melancholy and full of sentimental feelings. We recollect the previous years and discover the history.
We focus on the culture and nature of this place. A place unique in so many respects.
