Karenn, King Midas Sound, DJ Qu, RP Boo, and More Confirmed for Unsound Festival

After a stellar four-day session in New York last year, the seminal Unsound Festival has revealed the first wave of artists slated to appear at its upcoming 11th edition, taking place in Krakow, Poland this fall. This year, Unsound will once again curate a multi-genre event, turning its focus towards the increasingly developing noise scene and both the experimental and dancefloor-oriented sides of electronic music. As part of the October festival, San Francisco-based ambient artist Robert Rich will be performing "Sleep Concert"—an event where lengthy suites of drones and meditative washes are played for a sleeping, daydreaming audience—for the first time since 1996. On a similar note, pioneering duo Porter Ricks—also largely absent since the '90s—will be bringing its brand of dub techno for a special performance during the week-long festival. In addition, Unsound's 2013 edition will include performances by King Midas Sound, RP Boo, DJ Qu, Karenn (a.k.a. Blawan and Pariah, pictured above), Stellar OM Source, Laurel Halo, and more. The entire list of artists so far announced for the upcoming festival (taking place October 13 through 20) can be found here. (via FACT)
