Launched in February 2021, The Festival Series is a "revolutionary" new live event series that would combine poker, casino and sports event all in one scene. The festival is the brainchild of Cash Game Festival co-founder Martin "Franke" von Zweigbergk who teamed up with the Swedish media powerhouse Acroud to revolutionize the approach to casino festivals.
The Festival plans to have several stops across various cities around the world, starting in Europe.
The inaugural Festival Series stop will take place from September 20-26, 2021 at Banco Casino, in the heart of the Slovakian capital city, Bratislava.
The first Festival was due to take place in Tallinn in June 2021, but had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. This stop has been postponed by a year.
