Unsound's theme for 2019 is 'Solidarity'

Unsound has revealed that its theme for this year's edition is 'Solidarity'.

This October's festival in Kraków will be the 17th edition of Unsound, and organisers - through an extensive as ever music and talks programme - "will try to answer questions about community, kinship and resistance" over the course of the eight-day event.

In announcing this year's theme, Unsound has asked a number of questions: "With ecological, economic and democratic systems in crisis, how do we fight isolation and distraction, to collectively and positively imagine possible futures and shared purpose?

"Are the platforms fostered by corporations ever really communities—and how are forms of solidarity commodified and rendered impotent?"

The festival is inviting people to submit their ideas for this year's 'Discourse' programme that follow the theme. You can submit ideas by sending an email to

Unsound 2019 is set to take place from October 6-13. The first line-up announcement will take place next month. You can find out more here. Read our review of last year's event here.
