Statements:

Robert Chmielewski (festival director):

The bands and artists which were invited by us, dash out into the future and they experiment with forms and, at the same time, mix what the old and very old with modern instruments. They make use of the reservoir until now restricted to some remote music genres. If I was to look for an element which combines the artists taking part in Asymmetry I guess I would choose truth. We don’t have a stage for pretenders, who like to wheedle like a theatre actor, striking the most made up poses. Some artists present a simple explosion of sounds, while in other cases the sound volcano has already erupted and the lava has already started to devour the listeners, as if by mistake. You can feel the intensity of the music. No one is left indifferent because this music requires sacrifice. It requires the listener to be taken under the reign of an indescribable and surprising soothing force.

Pete Adams (Baroness):

A fantastic audience. Super festival. We are very pleased with our performance and such a warm welcome.

Havoc (Blindead):

The atmosphere of the festival is amazing. Both, the audience and the contact between bands. I think that Asymmetry Festival marks out a new musical direction in Poland.
