BOILER ROOM X BALLANTINE’S TRUE MUSIC ARRIVED IN POLAND FOR THE FORUM AND FINALE OF ITS THREE-CONTINENT TOUR
August 24th, 2017: Boiler Room x Ballantine’s True Music is touched down in Poland for the culmination of a tour that travelled to Brazil and Russia, delivering a world-class music line-up to millions of fans.
True Music Poland marked the 18th Boiler Room x Ballantine’s collaboration, a global partnership that supports and celebrates uncompromising artists committed to doing it ‘their way’. It saw headline True Music artist and one of dance music’s most loved characters, producer and DJ Seth Troxler, return to close out the latest series in Warsaw, in what promised to be the biggest line-up yet, across two unique events.
The embodiment of the True Music ethos, Seth has a long history of supporting emerging and underground artists, using his standing to help them succeed.
Seth’s True Music project finale featured the second True Music Forum, the coming together of some of the music industry’s leading figures to discuss the evolution of music, culture and nightlife in 2017. It culminated with a 1,000 capacity True Music show featuring some of the biggest global and local DJs handpicked by Seth himself, including Brodka, Catz’n’Dogz and Craig Richards, all broadcast live on the True Music site.
Seth Troxler commented:
"It’s been a pretty mad six months getting under the skin of such cool cities and working with great friends – new and old – in the countries we’ve visited. What better way to round it off than with the True Music Forum and massive True Music party in Poland.”
