LOFT, Shackleton & Zimpel and Matmos are amongst the latest additions to the Kraków festival's line-up

Unsound has added a selection of acts to this year's bill, including breakout producer LOFT, Japanese group GOAT and the premiere of a collaborative live show between Shackleton and Polish clarinetist Wacław Zimpel.

That collaboration will see the two present what they describe as a "brand new long-form, slowly evolving composition", and their set at Unsound will mark its world premiere.

Also locked in for the festival are representatives of Berlin's queer femme collective Room 4 Resistance (including residents Deena Abdelwahed and Luz) and Oakland's Club Chai collective (including FOOZOOL, 8ULENTINA and Jasmine Infiniti).

The festival has lined up further DJ sets from GHE20G0TH1K affiliate LSDXOXO, Parisians Teki Latez and Betty (who will play back-to-back), Seattle scene representative CCL, Whities and Nous'klaer Audio affiliate upsammy and Polish techno DJ Monster.

Matmos will present their recent album, Plastic Anniversary, live at the festival, while Finland's Vladislay Delay will also be at the festival with the world premiere of a new live show. Saudi Arabia's MSYLMA will play live alongside ZULI, Karim el Ghazoly and Omar El Sadek, and Matias Aguayo will present a new live show in support of his recent album.

Further highlights come from France's Félicia Atkinson (who will play live), Eli Keszler & Nate Boyce (who will present the European premiere of their show 'Pedagogy') and Shanghai SVBKVLT collective member HYPH11E who is set to play back-to-back with Kenya's Slikback, representing the Nyege Nyege collective out of Uganda.

Sunn O))), Holly Herndon and Paula Temple are amongst the names already locked in to play this year's festival which will run across multiple Kraków venues from October 6-13. Head here for more information.
