The greatest number of shows, a new stage, the third edition of the Independent Market Music Trade Fair and over 16,000 participants – that’s the seventh edition of Audioriver in a nutshell. The festival in Plock is still the fourth biggest paid festival in Poland. Once again it was nominated in the Festival Awards Europe and got into the Top 10 of Best Overseas Festivals in the UK Festival Awards.

Over 20 different exhibitors, including some other Polish festivals, participated in the third Independent Market Music Trade Fair. Another inseperable element of Audioriver, the Festival Cinema, offered a great selection of independent movies about music. The first exclusive showing of “Re:Generation” in Poland was definitely one not to have been missed. Also, the festival’s guests were given the opportunity to meet Deadbeat and Martyn at the Red Bull Music Academy info session, another regular Audioriver attraction.
Held in April at the University in Poznan, the second Audioriver Music Conference turned out to be yet another success of the 2012. It gathered over 250 guests who participated in various lectures and panel discussions and, after the Conference, could enjoy themselves with Benoit & Sergio playing live at the After Party in the Poznan SQ club.
