After two successful Wooded events editions in Wroclaw, Catz ‘N Dogz are bringing the brand back home to Szczecin, Poland, on June 23, 2018.
Wooded is passion project between Catz ‘N Dogz’ Voitek and Greg, Marysia Shepheard from Feast Artists and Rafal Caly from C&C Bookings, altogether boasting 10 years of industry and partying experience. Wooded aims to create an event that incorporates their love of quality underground electronic music and original eco-friendly production with a strong culture and lifestyle element, including great local food, art installations from local designers, and a kid zone with special activities designed especially for children and young adults (e.g. Music Production Masterclass curated by Polish artists).
The line-up has been handpicked by the four to showcase a eclectic mixture of live and genre-defining house and techno artists who have inspired them. The first acts announced for 2018 include: Answer Code Request and Ryan Elliott, Kater Blau’s Mira, Catz ‘N Dogz and local Szczecin’s collective Canalia. The concert is headlined by talented duo The Dumplings (aka Justyna Święs and Kuba Karaś) who are currently one of Poland’s most popular artists. This will mark the band’s first performance in the city of Szczecin, so it is something to look forward to. As with tradition, the festival will be opened by the winner of the Wooded City DJ competition, in line with Catz ‘N Dogz’s philosophy of supporting the thriving musical talent that exists in Poland. More live and DJ acts are set to be announced soon.
Having been longtime champions of the Polish scene, Catz ‘N Dogz decided to stage the festival in Szczecin as a way to support the city and its artists who gave them their start. With Szczecin just a two-hour train ride from Berlin, it also links comfortably to the German capital and Europe’s techno hub. It also makes an easy day trip for Berlin-based attendees who wish to have a new music experience this summer.
