Some say there are over 100,000 Poles now living in London. You may be getting to know their pierogi or drinking their wódkas - but just how much do you know about Polish pop music?

The UK's first Polish pop music festival - PKO BP London Live - being held on September 7 at Wembley Arena gives you a chance to find out more. The festival - free to attend - will be an 8-hour marathon featuring the best in Polish contemporary hitmakers.

Big names feature - the Prince-esque funkstress Natalia Kukulska (10 albums and sales of over 2.5 million to her name), Polish Pop Idol winner Monika Brodka, sultry rockers BAJM (who have already played to packed London audiences), folky electro-singer Kayah (10 number 1 hits in Poland) and anthemic electro-rockers Lady Pank (who've been around since the 80s with over 20 albums).

To attend, you need to register - with an ace line up, and customary Polish revelry, a great day is promised.
