About festival

MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival – the only one of its kind on the cultural map

When we created the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival in 2018, our goal was to make it a space where we could experiment, push boundaries, and experience something new. That's why the festival has been ahead of trends since the very first edition. For the past five years, we have been connecting different fields of art, blurring the boundaries between them, and experimenting to find new directions for developing music, art, design, and modern technologies. At the same time, we address current social issues that concern the contemporary audience from various perspectives.

Every year, during several days of the festival, we bring to life inspiring projects that we don't have the opportunity to present during the regular artistic season. Each edition leaves a lasting impression with its location, sound, light, and space. At the same time, by seeking trends and the underlying principles governing the world, we bring together various currents that encourage reflection.

The Sixth Edition with ENERGY in the Background

The sixth edition of the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival will take place from September 20th to 24th, 2023, with the theme of ENERGY. Once again, we will collide the remarkable architecture of the Szczecin Philharmonic building with concerts, unique musical projects, exhibitions, and spaces for discussion.

We will explore ENERGY from various perspectives – from the obvious energy conveyed by music to educational issues related to ecological awareness and sustainable development. ENERGY will be our guide, elevating our perception to a different level throughout the five festival days.


We are aware of the changes happening in the modern world. Through our actions, we aim to educate and encourage reflection. We want to showcase new possibilities and trends in art and life, pathways to personal growth, and create a better tomorrow for the world. The MDF Festival provides an excellent platform for this, which is why we emphasize education every year, including in the area of renewable energy sources.

ENERGY is a theme that arises in the context of the contemporary world's challenges. Responsibility for the natural environment and its resources is widely discussed today, and "green energy" actively contributes to its improvement. The threat of climate change and its irreversible consequences for our lives have become one of our most important problems. By caring for the environment and simultaneously nurturing our life energy, we can do more for the world.

And that's exactly what the MUSIC.DESIGN.FORM Festival 2023 will be – full of a broad understanding of energy that will permeate each event in various ways. We will surprise and awe, discovering new paths through music and art while educating and entertaining.
