Circus in town or town in circus? Magical time of the Festival will fill the streets of the Old Town with joy and wonderful atmosphere. For three days forgotten and unavailable places will open their gates to the public and the common ones will grow a new meaning. The unique atmosphere of the Festival will be created by true masters and artists who travel around the world making spectators smile, admire and awe. Sky these days will be cut by the highlines hanging in the Market Square and the Castle, circus tents will add color to the city and a warm glow of fire shows will turn the Amphitheater into red.

For those few days of August smile and joy will rule the city! Welcome to Oleśnica – 10th-12th of August 2018- a lot will happen!

Artists 2018

Mister
Ząbek

"The
pop-up
act!"

A clown, an illusionist, a colourful and grotesque street artist who can surprise the viewer while making him laugh to tears. During the festival, he will present a performance combining elements of circus' magic and clowning. With the help of a large cannon and a bowling ball, the artist will perform an illusionistic card trick. Will everything go right? Even the artist can’t be sure. It will be loud, colourful and funny as befits a clown. A surprise - guaranteed.

Notopop
/
concert

The electro-pop trio will perform on the OFCA music scene. The band draws inspiration from contemporary synth sounds, but also eagerly reaches for the classics of Britpop and electronics. At their concerts, the dirty bit is intertwined with the sounds of the zither, the electrifying guitar sounds in their music pieces, and the strong bass strike encourages the dance. Band is preparing to release their first album and will be performing on the street scene of the festival with fresh, warm material.

Azislight
"Rock
Star"

A fireshow in rock style and concert stage arrangement is another proposal within the festival fire performance. Dancers will turn into musical stars that will bring real flames to the stage! During the show you will see burning microphones, a heated hula hoop, colourful smoke flares, spatial installations whirling in the fire and guitars with a pyrotechnic effect. In this show you will certainly not miss humor, good entertainment and work with fire at a high artistic and technical level.

MEET ALL ARTISTS

Slackline

There will be highlines suspended at the Oleśnica Castle’s courtyard and also at the Market Square between the windows of the City Hall and the surrounding townhouses. On them on a height of several meters above the ground highliners will be walking about. Once again this year we will stretch our SPECTACULAR, the LONGEST city highline in Poland – 117 meters – going from the tower of the Town Hall to the tower of the Basilica.

There also will be a slackline town at our guests disposal located on the green area at by the Castle where professional highliners will advise and thoroughly instruct every beginner.

Fire

Fireshow on OFCA is a combination of fire and pyrotechnics prepared especially for our eyes by real professionals. This year we will  invite you to the FIRESHOW performance at the amphitheatre and OPEN STAGE FIRESHOW in the courtyard of the Oleśnica Castle! Fireshow performance starts on Friday (10:00 p.m.) at the Amphitheatre, and we hope that it will attract real crowds. The next event of fire – Fire Open Stage – is planned as in previous years, on Saturday (10 p.m.) and will be held in the courtyard of the Castle in the accompaniment of music by dj Endless.
