Unsound is a platform for artistic ideas for musicians, visual artists, curators, journalists, producers, labels and agents from all continents. The festival specialises in cutting-edge contemporary music, hosting niche artists experimenting with sound and using unusual techniques.
Most of the festival guests elude easy classification by genre. Founded in 2003, today the festival is a world-class event which sets new trends. The main instalment of the festival is held annually in Kraków, and there are regular events in London, New York, Toronto and Adelaide. Unsound also produces fifteen events in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus.
The festival is organised by the Tone Foundation in partnership with the City of Kraków and the KBF.
