Become a Friend of Unsound for the Fifteenth Edition of the Krakow Festival

With the first artist announcement and passes going on sale, we are putting on hold the submissions for membership in the Friends of Unsound. We would like to thank all people who have joined so far, and hope to see you at the festival and encourage you to keep supporting our mission in exchange for our love and gratitude.

The roots of Unsound in Krakow are steeped in a DIY ethos, around which a global network has developed. Over the years, we’ve resisted developing the festival into a commercial juggernaut, instead focusing on quality programing, a human scale, producing new projects and fostering a community of artists, audience and organisers to create a unique atmosphere. Despite the fact that demand for tickets far exceeds availability, we do not produce massive events - yet still try to keep ticket costs at a reasonable price, and also offer many free shows and talks.

Taking a different approach to growth creates real challenges in terms of sustaining the festival, especially in regard to ongoing operating costs throughout the year.

Linked to the fifteenth edition in 2017 - taking place between October 8th and 15th - we are launching a Friends Of Unsound community, and asking those who can and are willing to give support to our ongoing costs as a non-profit organisation. All funds raised will go into running this organisation and preparing the 2017 festival.

Membership is limited, but this isn’t a VIP deal. It is, simply, a way of confirming support and getting a few unique gifts in return. You can donate any amount you want, but the minimum is 300 Euros or 1300 złotys. In return you will get as a thank you:

  • A free weekly or long weekend entrance to the fifteenth edition of Unsound, plus free entry to any additional special shows.
  • A Polish dinner for the community of Friends of Unsound during the 2017 festival. This doesn’t mean fancy - it means tasty. And it means festive and traditional.
  • A Friends of Unsound boat trip up the Wisla River during Unsound 2017 with a DJ playing tunes. It’s October, so we can’t promise the weather will be warm - but we can promise it’ll be fun so you won’t care.
  • A Friends of Unsound gift bag with a dedicated set of goodies (you’ll get this when you rock up to next year’s festival).
  • A thank you in our 2017 booklet and on our website, and a certificate you can hang on the wall in your dining room, toilet, garage or cellar.

If you can’t come to Unsound Krakow 2017, but would like to support the festival, then you can still do so, of course for any amount. You can also donate and receive the membership for someone else as a gift. We will list a thank you to everyone who does so on our website, and for any donation over 300 Euros, you’ll also get listed in the 2017 booklet.

Thanks to everyone for reading, and for your ongoing support. Unsound would not exist without you.

You can support through PayPal - just follow the instructions on the “DONATE” button. You can also send a transfer to the account of Fundacja Tone - Muzyka i Nowe Formy Sztuki, the foundation which runs the annual Krakow festival. Due to the PayPal fees, we would definitely prefer that you give support using a traditional bank transfer if possible, but obviously either way we’re very thankful.
