NEW ANNOUNCEMENT Mac DeMarco, Shura, Folamour, Alyona Alyona, Piernikowski + guests, Lazarus join the line-up!
The 2020 OFF Festival Katowice will take place August 7–9, 2020, at Three Pond Valley. Artists announced so far are: our benevolent overlord Iggy Pop, the revolutionaries from Bikini Kill, and the guitar sensation Tropical Fuck Storm. Stay tuned for more announcements!
The OFF Festival has drawn music artists and fans from all over the world to Silesia, Poland. OFF was born of the need to share music and fulfill dreams, but it was also driven by a sense of mission: to bring together members of different cultures, milieus, and artistic disciplines.
Its visionary program and welcoming atmosphere are praised by OFF regulars, the media (with recommendations from The Guardian, Time, and Pitchfork, as well as Seattle’s KEXP Radio, which recorded a series of live sessions with Polish artists in Katowice), and the festival industry: OFF is a winner of the prestigious European Festival Award for Best Medium-Sized Festival.
OFF Festivals regulars will know that we care about the environment as much as we do about music, and we encourage others to do the same. Our efforts in past years won us an international Green’n’Clean award and a nomination for the European Green Operations Award.
Last but not least, the OFF Festival is an informal annual gathering of the creative industry: you’d be hard pressed to find a higher concentration of filmmakers, writers, and media figures, all of whom descend upon the festival in search of new sensations and inspirations.
