Techno-music is popular in Krakow and has a cultural connection to the country’s political and social change. During the 1980s and 1990s, techno music was embraced by Polish youth to express their desire for freedom and individuality in the face of a government that sought to control all aspects of public life.

 In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the scene was influenced by rave culture, and techno parties could be found all over Poland in abandoned buildings and industrial estates. 

These days, the techno seen in Poland is thriving and is getting pushed into the mainstream. Krakow, in particular, has many great techno clubs, bars, unique events, and festivals. Many talented local DJs play alongside great international DJs and producers. Krakow has become one of the best spots in Europe for any Techno fan.
