The Krakow-based Unsound Festival was founded in 2003 and soon became globally recognized thanks to a stream of forward-thinking events in New York, London, Toronto, Adelaide and the Eastern Europe.
The four editions of Unsound Festival in Minsk (2007-2008) had a huge impact on the Belarusian music scene, bringing a large number of international acts to the city, and helping local artists to get more international visibility. A compilation CD ‘Connections’ released by ~scape label in 2009 and featuring collaborations by Pole & I/DEX, Pinch & Pavel Ambiont and others helped to establish the links between the Belarusian and the Western music scenes.
In May 2017 Unsound Festival will return to Belarus to create a varied program of electronic and experimental music, audio-visual performances and discussions in a new collaboration with Mental Force Festival (Minsk).
Dislocation — is the new event series run by Unsound Festival in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia that bringing together international and local music scenes. This year Dislocation events will start in Minsk, then travel to Almaty (KZ), Kazan & Murmansk (RU), Lviv (UA).
Mental Force Festival (Belarus) is co-organized by two Belarusian labels — Foundamental Network and Force Carriers, who are joined by МЕЧТА — one of the most resonant techno promo-groups of the recent years that has shaken the Minsk with its abandoned factory raves.
