Asymmetry Festival is an annual festivity, for the fans of the alternative music scene, organized by the Firlej club in Wroclaw since 2009. The aim of the event is presenting unique artists from the verge of rock, metal, electronics, rap and jass, as well as artists experimenting within their own stylistic, exceeding the genre boundaries.  Asymmetry provokes, enforces the search and a wider view of the musical output. The festival is directed towards the international audience – fans of music with an eclectic, but particular taste.


Among more than 40 invited bands there are true music legends such as Killing Joke and Sleep. There are also many promising performances such as Obake or Eraldo Bernocchi – the master of avant-garde in cooperation with bassist Trevor Dunn, known widely from Mr. Bungle and Fantomas. You’ll also be able to witness Kristoffer Rygg of Ulver and Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) joining forces in the band named Æthenor and the Fugazi bassist Joe Lally in his solo project. Asymmetric sounds fans will surely appreciate performaces of the Bohren & der Club of Gore, Red Fang, A Storm of Light, Amenra or Celeste. If you’re a fan of drum’n'bass, dubstep or breakcore, there’s a place for such treats in the festival club, where you’ll be able to see Broken Note, Niveau Zero and Igorrr.  


The fourth edition of the Asymmetry Festival will take place in a unique space – the construction complex of a closed brewery. Browar Mieszczański [Bourgeois Brewery] is a XIX century establishment, characterized with a unique industrial architecture, and is an alternative location, on the map of Wroclaw, since many years.
