The opening of the 18th edition of the Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice Festival will take place at the hospitable venue NOSPR. The star of the opening concert will be Max Cooper. The British artist will present a unique audiovisual show, blurring the boundaries between art, music, film and technology.
This special opening will be followed by two festival days filled with top-notch musical experiences. The biggest crowd pleaser will be the main stage, which, as every year, will stand in the impressive space of the International Congress Centre. On Friday, 9 June, the City of Music Stage will play host to award-winning artists who have been pioneering new directions in electronic music for many years, such as Orbital, Clark and Oneohtrix Point Never. Alongside them, the very promising band PVA, which combines electro with punk energy, will also play. In turn, on Saturday 10 June, some of the most anticipated artists of this edition will perform on the main stage – electropop stars Röyksopp, the great sensation of alternative R&B Sudan Archives, the legendary band Tangerine Dream with a new line-up, and BŁAŻEJ KRÓL, one of the most interesting representatives of the Polish alternative scene.
Inside the ICC there will also be a stage at the Tauron Music Hall. During the festival, we will hear performances of cross-genre music projects there. On Friday, 9 June, the country singer Baasch, the alternative rapper Billy Woods, the triumphant British singer Biig Piig and the techno star Pantha Du Prince will perform. On Saturday 10 June, in turn, the global ambassadors of Polish electronica from the duo Skalpel will play, as well as the American saxophonist Theon Cross and the artists blazing new trails in bass music – Hudson Mohawke and Romare.
This year, the NOSPR’s Great Concert Hall will also make its debut as a separate festival stage for the first time. Artists hailing from classical and folk music circles, but open to experiments with jazz, electronica and ambient, will play there. On Friday 9 June, it will be the Polish pianist Bartek Wąsik and the famous American composer William Basinski, and on Saturday 10 June, the eccentric Dutch pianist Joep Beving, as well as Polish young jazz stars from EABS in a joint concert with the Pakistani band Jaubi.
Another stage will stand right next to the NOSPR building. During the festival, it is the NOSPR Amphitheatre that is famous for the most surprising and energetic concerts. It is a frequent place of musical discoveries, where the freshest artistic phenomena win new fans. It will be no different this time, when PERŁA FEEL THE BEAT will appear there under the open sky. From crazy rave and techno played live, to concerts by Polish alternative music stars, to experimentalists generating fresh sounds using traditional instruments – there will be a lot going on in the amphitheatre, but it will never be boring.
The 18th edition of the festival could not miss the club scene. This is where the festival usually lasts the longest. As every year, a huge tent on the grounds of the Silesian Museum will host many hours of dancing madness with the best DJs from Poland and abroad. They will present what is freshest and most noteworthy in dance music. Joining the previously announced artists is a representative of the local Katowice scene – the talented producer Skórysyn.
During the 18th edition of Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice, there will also be an official festival club. Apart from the 5 regular festival stages, the music will also pulsate in the intriguing space of JAZBAR Muchowiec. On Saturday, Szychta, an event dedicated to the young Polish electronic scene, will take place there. It is curated by Avtomat from the Ciężki Brokat collective. Sunday will see the culminating event of the festival – FAJRANT.
FAJRANT at JAZBAR will allow fans to end the 18th edition of Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice in unforgettable style. Entry to both events will be free for festival wristband holders. There are still 2-day passes on sale at 379 PLN, as well as 3-day passes at 469 PLN. It is worth deciding to buy them now, as their price will increase on 26 May.
Unique emotions, memorable concerts, exceptional artists and a unique location – this is the shortest recipe for the Tauron Nowa Muzyka Katowice Festival. It is worth visiting again.
