Beloved Presents, in association with City Repair’s Village Building Convergence, is proud to present The Polish Ambassador with Very Special Guests.

The Polish Ambassador’s Permaculture Action Days have inspired fans around the world. This June, he returns to Portland to participate in 10-days of direct action to transform our city — 16th Annual Village Building Convergence (June 3rd-12th).

~ Village Building Convergence – Portland ~

The City Repair Project‘s Village Building Convergence (VBC) is a world renown event that brings people together from all walks of life to build community, make the city more sustainable, create beautiful public art, and celebrate. For ten days there are hands-on projects at 40 sites around the city of Portland Oregon. Each evening features gatherings with great food, inspiring workshops about how we can make positive changes, and fantastic music and dancing. Find out more:

~ The Polish Ambassador ~

The Polish Ambassador (real name David Sugalski) is raising the bar for what it means to be a professionally touring musician. Sure, the electronic musician lays claim to producing the sweetest beats this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, but the world’s funkiest diplomat is also using his popularity to steer the millennial generation toward a nourishing and sustainable way of relating with art, community and the planet. From birthing the Permaculture Action Movement aka (a movement where the energy of show/festival goers is catalyzed into community action), to creating a program where nutritious beverage options are available at music venues on a routed TPA tour, the ambassador is using his clout to make real, tangible change, and along the way inspiring hundreds of thousands.

With a stack of 17 albums and countless remixes, the jumpsuited one ( that’s right…TPA rocks the freshest jumpsuit) has swirled together a cornucopia of music for your auditory senses…and your booty. Over the last decade, his sound has dipped and swirled through a staggering range of styles, each album exploring uncharted sonic territory. Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitch; world-infused groove; bass-fueled breaks; sexified down-tempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto-blasters across the galaxy.

In the live setting, expect to be taken on a masterfully crafted and evocative journey mixing old and new into an auditory canvas that will spark nostalgia, titilate your senses, and make you drop that bottom like it was ‘92…3092. All of that music you hear? It’s all created via solar power on TPA’s off-grid community homestead AND it’s available for free or “Name Your Price.” Just one of the ways The Ambassador says “Thank You” to all of the people out there who have supported the project along the way.

So if TPA’s earth-space escalade is docking at a city or festival near you…dust off your onesie, get ready to boogie and gear up for an epic community action day. Welcome to the future, where we don’t just party. We party with a purpose.

    Polish Ambassador represents not only fantastic boom bastic boooty shakin beats, but also gives a voice and platform for partying with purpose. His team creates action projects as he travels to help create healthier communities and is simply just a genuine human being!

    We would love to win tickets to this show! Seen polish countless times everywhere from his local Nevada city shows to big festivals like lightning in a bottle! Never once been disappointed and absolutely love the vibe and energy polish and the crew put into every show! Love his whole out look on the scene and love what a positive impact he leaves on each community he performs in. In a rough spot money wise right now and some tickets to this show would be a huge blessing! Good luck to everyone and hope we get too goofy with you at the show!

    I would absolutely love to attend this show! The more support for down to earth artists, the better ^.^

  16. Shauna Puckett May 10, 2016 at 2:28 pm #

    2 years ago I went through a lot of big life changes. Those began with a Summer full of “say yes”. I said yes to Beloved, my first ever festival, where I found TPA, and fell in love. Since then I’ve made a lot of strides to better myself and my outlook on life, with help from my amazing festival family. June 4th is the weekend before my last final in school. I will be graduating next month! What better way to kick off Summer, than revisiting how I started this whole journey! I would be immensely thankful for the opportunity to see the show. <3

  17. Bennett May 10, 2016 at 2:31 pm #

    Been wanting to see TPA for so long! Excited for an opportunity to get my groove on

  18. Tojo May 10, 2016 at 2:55 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to see the Polish Ambassador live for so long! Plus, one of my best friends who’s going to school on the eastcoast happens to be visiting at the time of the show! What a great way for us to reconnect.

  19. Samara May 10, 2016 at 2:58 pm #

    I love Polish Ambassador! I would love to win tickets to boogie down on my birthday weekend!

  20. Brian May 10, 2016 at 3:10 pm #

    Polish is the best!!

  21. Kate Roden May 10, 2016 at 3:39 pm #

    The first time I met The Polish Ambassador was in Costa Rica at Envision. Him and I were side by side admiring Ayla in all her glory. I nudged him and said “this woman is amazing!” To which he replied “isn’t she? That’s my girlfriend” with the silliest giant grin on his face. At that time I didn’t know who he was. And now..I am in love with their whole movement, separately and together.
    I know whoever wins will be beyond blessed! Cheers to throwing seeds in the wind <3

  22. Rae May 10, 2016 at 3:41 pm #

  25. Reid May 10, 2016 at 4:54 pm #

    I’ve loved the eclectic and groovy beats of the PA for a while now. I’d so enjoy the chance to see them live and dance all night. I’m a contemporary/hip hop/blues dancer and the huge range of sounds always gives me such dance inspiration!

  26. Xochi Raye May 10, 2016 at 6:45 pm #

  30. Abby Walter May 11, 2016 at 10:23 am #

    The Polish Ambassador and crew are leading the way in the evolution of the festival scene and music in general. When I wanna get my groove on AND help change the world I think of TPA. This music is what I imagine a transcribed version of honey bees vibrations to be like, a steady bumping and buzzing, dripping golden honey out the ears. And I can’t wait to taste it :)

  31. Caspian Kai May 11, 2016 at 5:35 pm #

    I would love to go to this, so much so that I’m considering driving down from Vancouver BC with my girlfriend (and definitely will if we were to win tickets)! Polish Ambassador and Saqi are two of my most adored and revered artists and live performers, having seen each play once before.

    I would also love to check out the community building events and permaculture workshops happening in Portland as part of Village Building Convergence, and take some ideas back to Vancouver and spread the good word. Polish Ambassador is a real inspiration with the work he does to radiate change and improve the planet.

    Let’s dance!

  32. JockJamz May 11, 2016 at 9:00 pm #

    I would love to go to this show because I love polish ambassador plus I’ll have a friend in town who’d also love to see him and let the rhythm justtttttt.

  35. Maggie May 12, 2016 at 12:00 pm #

    This would be an absolutely amazing experience to win! I would love to enjoy this event but being in college makes it difficult. I love polish ambassador and listen to his albums all day everyday!!

  36. Kris May 12, 2016 at 12:07 pm #

    Saw Polish Ambassador set front row at Hulaween as a way to catch up with a long time friend who loves the band. I was blown away by the energy PA brings and would love to see them again in an indoor non-festival setting.

  37. Juliet May 12, 2016 at 12:09 pm #

    Stoked for the good times with friends and fam! My favorite show of the year is here!

  38. Wes Walker May 12, 2016 at 12:48 pm #

  39. Katherine May 12, 2016 at 12:51 pm #

  40. Shoshana May 12, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

    I have so many fresh dance moves I must share with the world!! I love PA and have been following him for years! Pick meeeee!!!!

  41. Darrow May 12, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

    My girlfriend & I just moved to Portland last week from Tucson, AZ & are very excited to say that we’ll attend our first Beloved festival this Summer! We are excited to get involved with the that will be happening alongside the tour, which is an amazing cause, regardless of going to this awesome show at the Crystal Ballroom! If you’re not aware of partying down permaculture-style with Polish Ambassador – the Action Day is going to be off the hook!

    Can’t wait to learn & grow with all of you conscious minded beautiful people! ❤

    • Darrow May 13, 2016 at 12:57 pm #

    Hoping to win tickets to dance my soul out before the launch of my new business. 100% profits to charity- Bridge City Kid is the first outdoor retailer for kids!
    Last year, we tried to “scalp” tickets, but to no luck. We sat underneath at the C.B. bar and ended the night dancing to 80s music next door, still a great night. :)

  50. Morgan May 15, 2016 at 4:25 pm #

    Would love to boogie all night with beautiful souls!

  51. Bryan Holt May 15, 2016 at 9:24 pm #

    Dreaming of An Old Tomorrow is one of my favorite albums of 2016. It’s smart, refreshing and would be so memorable to see live!

  52. mike f May 16, 2016 at 8:35 am #

    Used to sell plants to Mcmennamins before economy crashed. would be nostalgic to step inside the building again.

  56. Betsy LeVine May 20, 2016 at 8:47 am #

  62. Taran Nadler May 26, 2016 at 3:26 pm #

    Polish Ambassador left me speechless and all jiggly legged the first time I saw him some 5ish years ago at BM. I’ve been in music love ever since. Would love to sway to that jumpsuit styled grooves again. TPA is golden!

  63. Ally Cooper May 26, 2016 at 4:16 pm #
