Meet The Polish Artists Playing Unsound 2016

Unsound Festival draws global attention to Krakow each year—but it doesn't ditch its home scene. PR, Web Manager and co-curator Łukasz Warna-Wiesławski explains the weeklong forward-thinking event's philosophy in regards to supporting local Polish artists, and we created a rundown of the Poles announced on the lineup so far.

“Polish artists are as important for us as the artists we bring over. Every year we try to put them in more prominent spots and engage them in special projects and cross-border collaborations or showcases. This year we’ve arranged some unusual combinations, like Felicita working with Stanisław Hadyna’s legendary Polish song and dance ensemble Śląsk and Body Sculptures’ live collaboration with the Sinfonietta Cracovia. We’re also looking further east to create truly unique pairings between Polish artists and international acts that are impossible to see anywhere else. Every edition of Unsound proves that Poles do not play a mere supporting role in the festival; in fact, they’re equals on the lineup, which is carefully programmed to present distinct and fully realized ideas in club and experimental music. From Paide’s help in linking with footwork scenes in Chicago and Japan to appearances by SHAPE Platform artists who tour likeminded European festivals, Poles are a vital part of Unsound, both in Krakow and our satellite events around the globe.”
