Unsound Kraków reveals first wave of artists

The first wave artists for Unsound Festival 2018 in Kraków has been announced, including Ben UFO (pictured), DJ Bus Replacement Service, JASSS, Shyboi, Iglooghost, and more.

The “International platform for adventurous music” touches down in Poland’s second largest city across October 7 to 14. The theme is characteristically challenging for the forward-thinking event: “What does it mean to be present in a world media saturation, where reality can be virtual or augmented, intelligence made artificial? How should we exist in an age self display, anxiety, cryptocurrencies, robotic technologies, data harvesting, algorithms, disinformation, social media bots and conspiracy theories? How does one understand nature, when it exists as a place to be visited rather than lived in?”.

The 2017 edition the proudly Polish festival saw 30,000 people attend hundreds performances, discussions, and lectures in 22 different venues over the eight days. The schedule looks to be just as packed this year.

Rabit, House Kenzo, and Sam Rolfes present Magna Surgat, a semi-improvised performance incorporating motion capture technology; Tim Hecker presents a show featuring traditional Japanese Gagaku musicians; UK favourite and Mixmag’s Ben UFO appears alongside modular synth expert Blawan, playing live set .

Further artists set to play include Kampire, Eris Drew, Ol Dreijer, OKLOU and Zenker Brothers and Skee Mask spinning their first ficial back-to-back set. See the full announcement .

Full festival tickets go on sale Wednesday June 6 at 3pm BST, with individual event tickets on sale a month later, along with another artist announcement. Unsound tickets generally sell out fast, so don’t miss your chance to see into the future this year.
