Krakow Unsound festival passes sell out in minutes

The first wave of Unsound festival tickets all sold out moments after its line-up was announced

As announced earlier this year, Unsound Krakow 2017 will be based on the theme of Flower Power. Festival weekend passes went on sale on 29 May, the day Unsound made its first line-up announcement, and immediately sold out. Individual passes will go on sale this coming August, once the full Unsound line-up is completed.

Artists and events confirmed so far include Einstürzende Neubauten, Nina Kraviz, a new Grouper related project, premieres of Robin Fox's Single Origin (the third part in his trilogy for lasers series), and Iwan Gunawan and Stefan Lakatos's Moondog For Gamelan, featuring the pair performing a previously unheard piece on Moondog's trimba, Jlin, Gas, DJ Sprinkles, Zonal with Moor Mother, Nkisi, Juliana Huxtable, Varg and others. Many more artists are yet to be announced.
