The legendary New York band is one of the most famous hardcore music groups in the world. Inter Tony – Festival of Twin Towns in Chojnice, Poland, will take place on 15 June.

Agnostic Front was established in 1980 and is known for their socially aware songs, standing up for those oppressed and deprived of their own voice in the public space. The Festival will also host many other independent metal, punk, hardcore, and rock bands: Massive Assault (from the Netherlands), Peter Ullrich and Tortured Spirit (both from Germany), Praïm Faya (France), as well as Polish bands like Narbo Dacal, Super Potwor and Tyran.

– ‘Music Against Racism is a campaign which brings together diverse music genres. Its core message fits perfectly with the main idea behind InterTony which is to establish friendships between people from different countries, Lukasz Jakubowski of the ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association explains. 

InterTony is a project based on collaboration of international youth associations which operate in twin towns in Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Poland. The organisers say, ‘We try to show the benefits of international cooperation based on mutual involvement, openness, and willingness to share good practices among democratic societies’.

The organisers of InterTony were inspired by DettenRockt, a festival against racism and discrimination in Emsdetten (Germany), supported many times by the Polish volunteers from Chojnice.

The ‘Music Against Racism’ campaign was launched in 1996 by the founder of the ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association Marcin Kornak (born 1968, died 2014). From the age of fifteen, due to an accident, Marcin lived with a physical disability. He was a poet and songwriter who cooperated with independent rock bands. The campaign was followed by ‘Music Against War’, announced on the first anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine, and joined by musicians who want to express their solidarity with the refugees and to protest against violence in the world.

The ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association invites musicians, record labels and promoters who are interested in releasing music tracks or videos as well as organising concerts with the promotional support of ‘Music Against Racism’ / ‘Music Against War’ to get in touch via email: .

The ‘Music Against Racism’ album was first released in 1997, and on the 20th anniversary of that fact it was also uploaded on YouTube:

‘NEVER AGAIN’ is an independent anti-racist organization founded in Warsaw in 1996. It has campaigned for peace, intercultural dialogue and human rights both in Poland and internationally.
