The Drums Fusion international percussion festival has started with a bang in the north-central Polish city of Bydgoszcz.
Concerts, workshops and parades will be among the attractions at the festival, which runs for six days.
Workshops running until Wednesday will be led by Polish and foreign drum virtuosos with a range of performance styles.
A colourful parade is scheduled to take place on Friday through Bydgoszcz’s Old Town.
During the grand finale of the festival on Saturday, the Finnish Apocalyptica band will perform a concert entitled “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos.”
Apocalyptica is an innovative cello group and will play their own versions of pieces by heavy-metal band Metallica.
