Wow, what an amazing experience this was! On August 3 we played our “Concert for Freedom” at Woodstock Poland and it was an honor to team up with Gorzów Philharmonic Orchestra for that very special performance!
This must have been the biggest show we’ve ever played and we’re still more than overwhelmed by you guys rocking and partying with us all night! Thanks a lot for coming out – we left Poland with smiling faces and we’ll definitely come back!
Here’s what the band has to say about this amazing concert:
“I can’t begin to explain the thrill of playing The Woodstock festival in Poland with the Gorzów Philharmonic Orchestra for The Concert For Freedom!!! Firstly, just hearing our music being played with the orchestra was incredibly powerful, but to have played with them in front of a couple of hundred thousand people was fucking unbelievable!!!! The energy being given by both the bands, and the audience in return was truly a “once in a lifetime” experience!!! Cross that off the bucket list!!!! Peace!!”
– John Corabi
“It was an unbelievable experience. The thrill of teaming up with the Gorzów Philharmonic Orchestra for Concert for Freedom and the energy of the audience at Woodstock Poland made the epic journey intense and emotional. It was an honor for us to share our love for rock and roll at such a monumental event celebrating peace and freedom.”
– David Lowy
“The WHOLE EXPERIENCE of playing and sharing the stage with a 60 piece Orchestra at the Gorzów Philharmonic was amazing in itself, now playing in front of 400.000 – 500.000 fans & audience at a Concert For Freedom & Peace can only be described as AN AMAZING EVENING of GREAT MUSIC!! Great vibes!! And MEMORABLE! Thank YOU WOODSTOCK & POLAND!!!! Hope to see you soon!!! VIVA LA MÚSICA!!! VIVA LA ROCK!!”

“I had a great time playing at the Woodstock Festival! I had no idea how it would be with the Gorzów Philharmonic Orchestra but our Maestro Monika made it very easy and fun. It’s a whole new Experience to add 60 players to a Daisies show!! An amazing moment for Freedom and Peace! I heard a few clips on Youtube and it sounded extremely cool! All in all an experience of a lifetime.”
– Doug Aldrich
“I had a blast playing the Woodstock Poland Festival where we played a Concert For Freedom with the 60 piece orchestra! They were all very kind and talented. I especially enjoyed working with Monika, the conductor, as she has quite an undertaking to keep together between rock band and orchestra! And let me not forget the great audience and fans in Poland! Thanks for the support and rocking with us!”
