A Polish band Cortez played their first show ever at the Opole Songwriters Festival before they reached popularity and won the Fryderyk award and the Anna Jantar Award for the winner of the Debuts show at the National Festival of Polish Song in Opole. Furthermore, Tomasz Makowiecki premiered his songs from album Moizm at the Opole Songwriter Festival and many other young Polish artists (such as Joga, Patrick The Pan, Peter J. Birch, Asia i Koty, Lily Hates Roses) performed there before they were heard and acclaimed by a bigger audience. With its name, Opole Songwriter Festival attracts to the capital of the Polish song also international artists from distant parts of the world – from the United States (Rykarda Parasol), through Australia (Hugo Race) to the United Kingdom (Karl Culley) and Germany (Barbara Morgenstern).
