Music Saves Ukraine – fundraiser

The past year has been incredibly challenging for artists in Ukraine, as they have had to endure the horrors of war and face daily circumstances filled with threats, stress, and uncertainty. Despite these severe crises, art continues to hold a significant place and play a crucial role. It is now more important than ever to remind the world about Ukrainian culture and promote it.

This year in Lublin, three exceptional projects from the alternative music scene of our neighboring country will be performing: the jazz band Hyphen Dash, and the electronic acts The Lazy Jesus and Monoconda. In addition, there will be a panel discussion titled „Music Saves Ukraine,” where we will delve into the current situation of the music industry in Ukraine. Artists and individuals associated with Music Saves UA, Music Export Ukraine, and the renowned Atlas Festival in Kyiv will be participating in this discussion.

Music Saves UA is a non-profit organisation that was founded on March 1, 2022, by UAME (Ukrainian Association of Music Events), the largest association representing the music industry in Ukraine. Its primary goal is to conduct fundraising campaigns to provide immediate humanitarian aid to the Ukrainian civilian population.

„We are appealing to the world for support for Ukrainian families and to ensure their survival. Our brave soldiers are doing everything in their power to fight and prevent the enemy from advancing further into our country.

Our mission is to provide care and support to the most vulnerable individuals, including mothers, children, older individuals, and those who are unable to help themselves. We are doing this for all those who have become victims of this cruel war against our nation.”

To encourage festival-goers to support the fundraising campaign, together with a group of visual artists we have prepared unique stickers specifically for the Wschód Kultury – Inne Brzmienia festival. These stickers will be given to individuals who visit our Festival Shop on any festival day and show proof of their donation to Music Saves UA made between June 30 and July 9, 2023. The minimum donation amount required to receive a sticker is 20 PLN.
