Stay True Poland was the final chapter of a global campaign between Ballantine's Whisky and Boiler Room, concluding a series of events previously hosted in Cape Town and Mexico City. Throughout the partnership, electronic music fans from all around the world had a chance to take a closer look at local music scenes, learn about the story of their pioneers and discover contemporary artists of the musical underground.
