The organizers say the event will be a show of support for the people of Belarus in their quest for a free and democratic country.
Among well-known Polish performers expected to take to the stage will be Krzysztof Cugowski, Luxtorpeda, Michał Szpak and the Golec uOrkiestra.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has lent his support to the event.
Morawiecki has said he will unveil a plan for wide-ranging international economic assistance to Belarus at a meeting of European Union leaders later this month.
He elaborated that the plan would include opening the EU to Belarusian entrepreneurs and establishing a stabilization fund, possibly with the participation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the PAP news agency reported.
It cited Morawiecki as saying that Belarus should be provided with financial assistance of at least EUR 1 billion.
Post-election protests have been underway in Belarus against strongman leader Alexander Lukashenko following an August 9 presidential election which the opposition says was rigged.
The demonstrations have continued despite a brutal crackdown by that country’s security forces.
