Don't Panic! We're from Poland (DPWFP) has become synonymous with new, high quality music from Poland since the initiation of the in 2008 by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.

After many years of presenting Polish bands at the biggest showcase festivals in the world such as: SXSW, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival, Eurosonic Noorderslag or Primavera Sound; it is time to shift our support to other parts of the music industry. DPWFP is a platform that helps in creating business contacts through organizing: trade missions, networking events, speed dating sessions etc.

The DPWFP project is responsible for over 100 events in 15 countries, presenting over 200 artists from Poland. The Adam Mickiewicz Institute started to be perceived as the Polish music export office which, under the flagship brand, promotes artists worldwide.
