UPDATE: This competition is now closed.
Poland’s festival scene seems to be leading the charge when it comes to interesting electronic music line-ups, and we’re not just saying that because the EB Festival is apt to make the odd trip across the border. One of the hottest European tickets for summer 2013 is Tauron Nowa Muzyka, a small festival with a pioneering attitude to electronic music. Taking place across August 22-25th in a disused coal mine in Katowice, part of the Upper Silesia Region of Poland, it boasts a number of mouthwatering prospects for your not-so-average discerning music fan. Our picks include a Numbers label showcase with Jackmaster, SOPHIE, Redinho, Deadboy and special guest Syrian star Omar Souleyman, a 20th Anniversary showcase from the evergreen German label Kompakt, plus those who like their music perched on the cutting edge might want to look up the new band on the up London Grammar, brush up their vogue moves for Zebra Katz and Njena Reddd Foxxx, feel the burn with heavy dub techno upstart Darling Farah or get cerebral with RVNG International’s Holly Herndon. Other artists on the diverse bill include Vladislav Delay, LFO, Venetian Snares, Squarepusher, JETS (that’s Jimmy Edgar and Travis Stewart’s collaborative baby), Jon Hopkins, Adrian Sherwood and Darkstar.
We wouldn’t talk all this up without giving you an opportunity to attend for free, so we’re giving away one pair of tickets for Friday and Saturday, which is when the main part of the festival takes place, plus camping. Travel, however, is not included.
All you have to do is sign up to our newsletter before 11:59 CET on Sunday July 14th—don’t forget to write “TNM” in the Festival field below so we know you want to be considered for this competition. We’ll notify the winner by email the next day.
