On December 1 and 2, Impart will see yet another edition of the WROsound Festival. This year, Marcin Cichy from Skalpel, the most famous band from Wrocław in Europe, will be the curator of the festival. The festival programme will feature first performance of Meeting by Chance, Alex Smoke, Lone and Long Arm, as well as Polish projects – Coals, Kroki, Janka and Normal Bias.
The WROsound Festival has been organised since 2009. The first editions focused mostly on music created in Wrocław, defining the “sound of Wrocław” – the Impart stages saw artists such as Peter J. Birch, Mikromusic, Miloopa, We Draw A, L.U.C, Hoo Doo Band, Indigo Tree and Sinusoidal. After a resounding success of performances by artists from other parts of Poland (Kristen, Pink Freud, Sonar) as well as from abroad (Ventolin, Christan Löffler), the formula of the event started to shift and evolve towards presenting the Wrocław sound in the context of music from other cities in Poland and in the world. This year, the curator of the festival – Marcin Cichy – will be the key to make the festival feel more local. “WROsound is a great opportunity to organise my dream festival. To invite artists whom I personally like and by whom I was inspired and influenced. To create an event that I would personally want to attend”, he commented.
During WROsound, we will witness the very first performance of Meeting by Chance, Cichy’s own solo project, which will soon be released by one of the oldest alternative labels – R&S Records. As part of the showcase of the British label, we will also see Alex Smoke and Lone. We will also have guests from the other side of Europe – Long Arm, hailing from St. Petersburg.
The Polish accents during the festival can all be summed up with one word – “first”. The first album by Coals, the first performance of the mysterious Janka project, dub Normal Bias or Żółć – a largely unknown band from Wrocław. Apart from that, we are also going to see the debut release by Kroki. Additionally, we are also going to enjoy Club Alpino (Iceland), a project of Marek Jeżyna, a musician from Wrocław.
On December 1 and 2, Impart will turn into a club space with three stages and a chillout room, all filled with unique sound. Tickets for both festival days and passes for the entire festival are available for purchase in advance from October 30 at 3:00 p.m. A limited number of tickets is available at 30 PLN per ticket and 50 PLN per pass.
