This year’s edition of East of Culture – Different Sounds takes place in Lublin between 27-30 June 2019.
Once again, music will become an inspiration and a point of departure for a free exchange of ideas, discussions on the dynamically changing world and a search for what is shared in it, perceptually sensed at the level of natural human sensitivity. Different Sounds is a meeting of different genres, styles and harmonies that come together in the universal need for self-expression. It is here at Different Sounds that world-class stars of alternative music share the stage with rising stars from the east, and the masters and pioneers of genres vital to the development of music meet pioneers of new niches and seekers of original sounds. All this shapes the unique character of the event and its one-of-a-kind atmosphere. More announcements of the many artists to appear in Lublin at the end of June are coming soon.
East of Culture is a project carried out by the National Centre of Culture with the financial support from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, in cooperation with the local governments of Rzeszów, Lublin and Białystok. The aim of the project is to integrate creative groups from Poland and countries of the Eastern Partnership countries.
