Should artists be willing to compromise their image or their creativity and identity, or to exhaust their physical and mental health to fit in the moulds of popular culture standards? In this panel moderated by Neda Sanai, performers Mary Ocher, Shaun J. Wright and Simonne Jones will discuss the pressure of the industry weighing on up-and-coming or established artists, and will suggest ways to support the underground and create a stream of resistance against current commercial dictates.
19H: SPACE FÜR ALLE featuring Viva Ruiz, Sky Deep, and Dreea Pavel.

Performers, DJs, and promoters Dreea, Sky Deep, and Viva Ruiz will lead a discussion around these matters that concern all of us diverse party people.
