Inside Brutaz, The Warsaw Party Challenging Polish Nightlife

Born from Warsaw’s DIY noise and power electronics scene, Brutaz has evolved into one of Poland’s most exciting—and controversial—techno parties. The nights are held in various Polish cities and confront attendees with experimental performances and ambiances designed to provoke cultural and political responsibility on and off the dance floor. Electronic Beats editor Elissa Stolman travelled to Warsaw and profiled the party for Red Bull Music Academy.
