This was the sixth edition of the youth event in Poland, in which over 3,500 people have already participated so far.
This year there were six lectures delivered by four speakers, concerts, the Freshstage and a large number of workshops for participants to choose from.
All the speakers had a common theme ('The Radicals'), inspired by the Sermon on the Mount preached by Jesus and recorded in Matthew chapters 5 to 7.
The morning lectures were given by Jonasz Małkiewicz, while the evening lectures were delivered by pastors Łukasz Woźniak, Samuel Skrzypkowski and Remigiusz Neumann.
As in previous years, there was a discussion panel and a worship concert. Every morning, participants could join th so-Inspirations.
Eighteen workshops about very different topics were on offer, such as: sharing the gospel, the spirituality of generation Z, fasting and prayer, forgiveness, studying the Bible, loneliness, church singing, and radical intimacy, among others.

Futhermore, every day various organizations presented their work on the patio by the main chapel. This year's attraction was the grill, operated by the pastor of KCHB baptist chuch, the rector of WBST theological seminary, and the main organizer of the festival, Rafał Dziarski. A cafe was also opened outside the main plenary hall.
New this year was the alternative tent, a space for people whose passion is arts. In the late evening hours, those who still had energy could go listen to the music by DJ Nopee.
