Continually boasting an eclectic lineup
OFF Festival is Poland's most prestigious multi-genre music festival, held amongst the scenic flora and fauna of Dolina Trzech Stawów to the south of Katowice.
Set up by founder Artur Rojek in response to the lack of diversity within the contemporary Polish music landscape, OFF Festival continually boasts an eclectic lineup, merging together lesser-known domestic talent with illustrious artists of international calibre.
Previous editions have seen the likes of Patti Smith, M.I.A, and Run The Jewels headline the three-day festival, with Britpop innovators Suede and indie giants Foals appearing at the summit of this year's bill.
Away from its impressively crafted lineup, OFF Festival has won numerous awards; a commitment to green initiatives and its beautiful lakeside woodland locale has seen the festival steadily grow into one of Europe's most prized and personable gatherings on the festival calendar.
South of Katowice, Dolina Trzech Stawów translates as the Valley of the Three Ponds. Lush green forest and meadows, interspersed with the three small lakes that give the area its name – it all makes for a stunning festival location.
