After performing at Pol’and’Rock back in 2021, Transylvanian FolkCore Orchestra Dirty Shirt was requested back to play the main stage on the 2022 edition after winning the fan-voted Golden Spinning Top festival contest. To date, this was the largest audience that Dirty Shirt has performed for, with an estimated 50k in attendance, according to festival organizers.
Today, the band is sharing the full concert video from the festival, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/aHdrgjSAvyA
And if you like what you see and hear from the live video, new and old fans alike will be happy to hear that the band will be touring in 2023 for the second part of the Get Your Dose Now Tour, with shows already announced in Romania, Poland, France, and UK (dates listed below).
Dirty Shirt‘s sixth album “Get Your Dose Now!” (released April 1, 2022) is a shorter nine-track album, with a little more than 30 minutes, but Dirty Shirt maintains that the listening experience will be very intense, as they combine many influences, and the songs change constantly with complex orchestrations. It was produced by Mihai Tivadar, mixed and mastered by Adrian Bila Uritescu and the album artwork was done by Lia Cucuianu.
Dirty Shirt brings a truly unique live experience, huge energy, huge emotions, and fun, with a scaling lineup based on the performance, which adds a lot of authenticities and a great live sound.
Recommended for anyone looking for something interesting and lively, Dirty Shirt is for fans of Twelve Foot Ninja, Dubioza Kolektiv, and Eluveitie.

About The Band:
Dirty Shirt is a top Romanian crossover folkcore metal band, winner of second place at the international final of Wacken Metal Battle 2014 and of several awards at Metalhead Awards and Maximum Rock Awards. The band’s unique style derives from mixing the heavy sound of modern rock/metal with the festive ambiance of East-European traditional music, the eclecticism of world music (country, reggae, and tribal rhythms), the electro sound of industrial music, the energy of hardcore, and the groove of funk. It’s not surprising to find great appreciation for Dirty Shirt albums in hundreds of reviews all over the world, including in well-respected magazines such as Metal Hammer (DE, HU), Rock Hard – (DE, FR, SLK), Metalsucks – USA, Hard Rock Mag – FR, Terrorizer – UK, etc.
