Off Festival in Katowice
Concerts, announcements, photorelations, reviews
OFF Festival is currently one of the largest and most prestigious alternative music festivals in Europe. The first four editions took place in Mysłowice, before being moved to the picturesque Three Ponds Valley in Katowice in 2010. Each year the leading Polish and international musicians showcase their alternative sounds on the festival’s many stages.
As Artur Rojek – the festival’s founder and director says, OFF was born from dreams and passion of sharing music. It was the first Polish event of its kind – tearing musical schematics, blending genres and electrizing everyone with innovativeness. It was reflected by the many awards the festival has quickly accumulated, including “Best Medium-Sized European Festival” award by European Festival Awards in 2011 and spots on TIME magazine’s “14 Music Festivals to Check Out in 2014” and The Guardian’s “10 of the Best Music Festivals in Europe”.
OFF Festival is a guarantee of musical experiences, where fans not only listen to the music, but also discuss it! There is also place for visual arts in form of paintings and sculptures, as well as written word in the festival’s Literature Cafe.
