Unsound festival returns to the Polish city of Krakow, but for now the mystery shrouded event, with this year's theme being 'Surprise', has only released 50% of the line-up. The mystery surrounding the festival will see events being held in underground ballrooms, wooden warehouses and a 19th century train station.
The programming for this year has marshalled a combination of renowned techno heavyweights with lesser known talent. Headlining acts for this year's festival include a collaborative performance between the industrial techno wizard Shackleton and Tokyo based instrumental trio Nisennenmondai, whilst techno industrialist Surgeon will perform with Lady Starlight (who has collaborated on many projects for Lady Gaga).
Following the release of Ambulare Aude via Bunker, Romans (a collaborative project between Tin Man and Gunnar Haslam) will explore themes from the Roman era, whilst a commissioned project between American partnership Rabit & Kuedo will showcase electronic craftsmanship with visuals being provided by Werkflow.
Additional heavyweights to perform include the melancholic stylings of Andy Stott, L.I.E.S aficionado Low Jack, and Levon Vincent, following the success of his first LP project.
Further names to be added to the line-up, alongside a day programme with special events to be announced soon.
Unsound Festival 2015 will run from October 11th to 18th in Krakow, Poland. Tickets on sale now.
