Polmic.pl is the first – and thus far the only – website dedicated exclusively to Polish music. Its principal objective is to keep the public up to date on the current activity of the musical environment in Poland and of Polish musicians abroad, as well as providing up-to-date, comprehensive information about Polish artists, music institutions and publications related to music.
