About the venue:

Back in 2009. an abandoned pharmaceutical packing factory in Pierottijeva street 11, a former squat, was legalized by the local government and leased to AKC Attack who’ve been sharing the space with other NGOs and initiatives ever since. The space focuses mainly on free education and night time underground music, from punk to psy trance. So if you dislike loud music and young people partying, this might not be up your alley. πŸ™‚

Apply here!

Good luck and we hope you join another instance of our cozy glitch family meetup. πŸ™‚ <3
