Ukrainian / Polish Alternative Music Meetings

Mitch&Mitch

The UA/PL Alternative Music Meetings aims to create a shared meeting place – a platform for both Polish and Ukrainian musicians to jointly find artistic inspiration. The event presented the more independent side to music across both nations

The festival emphasies cooperation and engagement among the musicians involved in the project. It also includes a competition for Ukrainian alternative music groups. 

A discussion panel featuring Polish and Ukrainian music journalists explored the current state of alternative music in both countries, along with a music poster exhibition and documentary film showings of avant garde Polish music. 

The musicians representing Poland included: Moja Adrenalina, Niwea, Mitch & Mitch and Paula i Karol
