NOC WALPURGII / VALPURGIS NIGHT FESTIVAL

Teaser Image: 

Noc Walpurgii festival started in 1996 in Warsaw, Poland and is organized every two years.

It's a pioneering event in Poland taking struggle against sexism and homophobia and promoting girl-fronted bands and activities.

These issues are often not taken seriously inside of the punk, DIY or antifascist scenes and we felt the importance to show that most forms of discrimination like racism, sexism, homophobia are linked and that fighting against these forms of oppression is basic for antifascist, leftist, anarchist and hardcore/punk movements.
