The former are two festivals of classical music, Misteria Paschalia in the Holy Week and Sacrum-Profanum in September, Photomonth in Krakow in May, and Festival of the Polish Music in July. Fairly new arrivals are Off Plus Camera festival of indie cinema productions in April, Film Music Festival and Czeslaw Milosz Festival of literature in May, Selector Festival of electronic music and ArtBoom festival of visual arts in June, Unsound music festival in October, Joseph Conrad Literature Festival in November, Divine Comedy festival of theater productions from all around the world in December.
