The first thought of putting the Tauron Nowa Muzyka came in 2006. They wanted to show the Polish public what’s according to their choice and taste the most interesting and valuable in the world of jazz, nu-jazz, electronic and dance music. Their goal was to seek out and showcase genders and artists which they’re not, at that time, present in the Polish media and public knowledge of the listeners. Their dream was to create an event which would attract audience from the whole Poland and maybe the entire Europe. The name Nowa Muzyka (New Music) became a byword for what they’ve set out to achieve.
Throughout the years they had the privilege and joy to host some of the hottest and biggest stars such as: Autechre, DJ Krush, Prefuse 73, Jamie Lidell, Amon Tobin, Flying Lotus, Battles, Bonobo and Fever Ray, just to name few. For most of them it was the first time they have ever performed in Poland. The combining of contemporary music with architectural heritage of their location as well as the entire Upper Silesian Region proved to be a huge success. 2010 saw them receive the European Festivals Award for Best Small European Festival!
