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

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
