9 Tauron Nowa Muzyka


General Info on Festival City at TNM 2016:


Our festival is located in the very center of Katowice, the capitol city of the Upper Silesia Region of Poland. The area formerly used for industrial reasons has now been successfully transformed into a real mecca for all contemporary music lovers.


The main Festival ground lies in between two beautifully preserved mine shafts Bartosz and Warszawa (which have now become true symbols of Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festiwal). Each year the festival's stages appear to host the biggest names of modern musical avant-garde in a closed coal mine serrounding. KWK Katowice, which operated between 1823 and 1999, is one of the best examples of the industrial relics in the entire Upper Silesia Region has now been given a second life as a music festival location attracting a huge audience.


This year, remembering the big popularity of our guided tours around the coal mine post industrial locations, organized during the festival, we are preparing new and even bigger treats. We will try and show our audience much more of this spectacular surrounding.


Apart from that you shall find all the essential features of any professional festival camp including the VIP Area, Main Stage and other, smaller stages, Food Corner, Drinking Tents, Toilets and Fresh Water Areas, First Aid Points, Merchandise and Kids Area!


All of the above will be feature on a simple and handy festival camp map for you to download prior to your arrival to Katowice. You can also find the map in our printed out festival program along with the Line Up and artists bio.


Thanks to our perseverance and consistency we have managed to persuade both the artists that perform at Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festival and our generous sponsors and media patrons to the idea to locate a major music festival at a closed down coal mine and make it work!

The old production halls, warehouses, carpentries and the amazing pressure tower proved to be the dream location for showcasing anything from instrumental nu-jazz sound to dark sounds of minimal techno.


We are certain that the unique location of Tauron Nowa Muzyka Festiwal is one of the main factors that make this festival a unforgettable experience for anyone that attends!
