WHERE: Katowice, Poland
WHEN: from 08 to 11 June 2023
An event that perfectly combines the most modern and futuristic sounds with the historical heritage of Upper Silesia.
The first festival in the world, which made its visitors dance and go wild in an old coal mine.
A relatively young audience, in constant and continuous growth.
It is with these premises that the new edition of the Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festival in Katowice is about to kick off.
It was 2006 when some friends, linked to the musical group “Hypnoza” decided to organize a musical review. The evening was attended by DJ Krush, Swayzak and Cristian Vogel who made the audience dance and entertain at the “Wieczorek” coal mine, near the deceased Wilson tree.
From that moment, from a niche event, the Nowa Muzyka Festival has taken on its current form. Four days of music and entertainment. Electronic music, in all its variants, is the protagonist of the review. During the Festival, however, you will not fail to listen to jazz, alternative and rock.
A festival to follow. Despite its young age, the event, in fact, won the European Festival Awards for 3 years, in the “Best Small Festival” section. An award that, in fact, contributed to its success even outside of Poland. The Guardian, on the other hand, has indicated it as one of the ten festivals to which one should participate at least once in one’s life!
