Warp Records to celebrate 25th anniversary with shows in Poland

Squarepusher, Battles, Hudson Mohawke, Darkstar and Rustie will all perform in Kraków

Warp Records are set to celebrate their 25th anniversary with a number of events in Poland.

The independent electronic label – which was founded in Sheffield in 1989 – will be hosting its quarter of a century celebrations from 14-20 September, with a series of shows featuring the likes of Squarepusher, Battles, Hudson Mohawke, Darkstar, Rustie and Patten. The London Sinfonietta and Mira Calix will also perform ‘Warp Works and 20th Century Masters’, featuring pieces by Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Steve Reich and more.

A statement at Warp25.net reads: “On the occasion of Warp’s silver anniversary, we’re taking the opportunity to draw on twenty five years of groundbreaking art and music, uniting emerging mavericks and boundary-stretching masters in a celebration of what the next quarter-century holds for the label.” The events will be held as part of the Sacrum Profanum festival in Kraków.
