pontone mixtapes

Unsound Festival Krakow will run for the week of 14th-21st October. As one of the last few years’ more reliably exciting musical events, it’s fair to say that the initial news is auspicious indeed for this year’s edition, which marks the 10th anniversary of the festival. As ever, the whole week is centred around a theme: where 2010′s was ‘Horror’ and last year’s was ‘Future Shock’, this year’s – appropriately for 2012 – is ‘THE END’.

“What does “THE END” refer to?,” teases the announcement on the Unsound website. “Is it the current mixture of feelings around us – the apocalyptic atmosphere and opposing sense of potential rebirth, or does “THE END” refer to something more prosaic? At least for now, we’re not going to say.”

But to mark their tenth birthday, the festival have announced that they will be inviting back some of their favourite artists who’ve played over its first decade of existence, with “quite a few presenting projects on a large scale”. On top of that, they promise “compelling world debuts, label showcases and other delights shaped by innovative and extreme programming that has become Unsound’s trademark for both its Krakow and New York events.”
