East of Culture – Different Sounds 2022

East of Culture – Different Sounds is a festival that offers an opportunity to experience music transcending genres, traditions, and cultural influences.


The festival presents sophisticated music that explores novel ideas. The festival is one of Poland’s most inspiring and explorative music events, featuring world-class musicians along with amazing rising stars in the heart of Lublin. This combination gives the festival its unique character and vibe.
However, Different Sounds is more than just music. The festival’s programme is rich and covers many areas. Enthusiasts of ambitious cinema can watch films from Eastern Partnership countries. There are literary events celebrating influential and significant books by Central and Eastern European writers, which we publish every year as part of our Wschodni Express series and introduce to Poland. The programme also includes contemporary art (poster exhibitions, street photography, design). The youngest visitors are invited to participate in Little Different Sounds. This original educational programme accustoms children and teenagers to sounds and different genres of music, showing that music is a rich cognitive field.
Lublin’s festival is part of the “East of Culture” project, made possible thanks to the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the National Centre for Culture, and local governments and creative groups in eastern Poland.
We live in challenging times, and the world today presents many challenges. However, we will not give up and keep working on this year’s edition of East of Culture – Different Sounds, scheduled for 7-10 July 2022. We hope that we can all enjoy it together, safely and joyfully, with our Ukrainian friends included. Our first announcements will go out very soon. In the meantime, let us listen to the artists we met at the festival who are now fighting for their country. Stay with us and support free Ukraine!!!
