If you are searching for a small-scale festival with a carefully picked line-up of diverse artists, not focusing on any genre, but quality and interesting music, this is the right festival for you.
The 11th edition of the OFF Festival Katowice will take place August 5–7, 2016 at the picturesque Three Ponds Valley. For over a decade, the city of Katowice, the capital of beautiful Silesian Voivodeship, has been the beating heart of the alternative music scene in East and Central Europe and recently Katowice was designated a UNESCO Creative City in the field of music. The OFF Festival is three days of music that will inspire, shock and entertain you, but it’s also about experiencing art and education, caring for the environment, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
The OFF Festival doesn’t aspire to be mainstream. They don’t showcase artists whose videos have a billion hits on YouTube. The OFF line-up neither favors nor discriminates against any specific genres. What matters is the music and the quality of that music. OFF Festival is a place where budding music lovers get to witness performances by alternative legends, and festival veterans get a chance to catch up on the latest phenomena in music.
The line up includes: Thundercat, Jaga Jazzist, Zomby, Ata Kak, Islam Chipsy, GZA, GusGus, Napalm Death, Machinedrum, Derrick May, The Master Musicians of Jajouka, Yung Lean, and many more.
