Unsound Festival Reveals Second Round of Artists
- Words: Jay Donaldson
Following its initial line-up announcement last month, Krakow's annual Unsound Festival has unveiled the second round of artists slated to perform at this year's event, which takes place October 12-19. Among those billed are Craig Leon (credited with discovering the Talking Heads), who will be performing his recently re-released 1981 album Nommos with Poland's Sinfonietta Cracovia, Detroit icons Robert Hood and Dopplereffekt, Chicago jacker Traxx, and Night Slugs-affiliated innovator Jam City. Atom™ and Robin Fox will combine lasers, video, experimental sound, and deconstructed pop in a collaborative performance, Mumdance is set to perform with MC Novelist and play back-to-back with Pinch, and ambassadors of the Berlin-based Janus collective—M.E.S.H., Lotic, Kablam, and Amnesia Scanner—is also set to appear alongside the previously announced Total Freedom. Powell's Diagonal label will be represented by Bronze Teeth and Russell Haswell, and also billed are Opal Tapes affiliates Karen Gwyer and Wanda Group, Kassem Mosse, We Will Fail, Pharmakon, The Bug (pictured above), and Norwegians Stine Motland, Transilvanian Galaxi, and Bjorne Torske.
While full festival passes sold out in record time this year, individual tickets to all events will go on sale on August 24 following final line-up and schedule disclosures. In the meantime, Unsound's latest line-up announcement can be read in full here.
