OFF isn’t trendy: it’s just way ahead of most trends. Often the artists we invite to Katowice still have their best records ahead of them, and they practice their breakthrough material on Polish audiences. It’s also hard to boil the OFF Festival down to a single genre, scene, or style when you have lords of noise playing alongside melodic geniuses, and the heroes of tomorrow opening for the legends of the past. What shapes and holds the festival’s philosophy together is its openness to everything that doesn’t come out of a cookie-cutter, everything that’s less obvious and more challenging than the products served up in the mainstream. That’s why even though festival art director Artur Rojek strives to get the greatest acts in alternative music to perform every year, you don’t see “names” playing in Katowice. You won’t meet faces you recognize from TV galas. You won’t hear the hits they play on corporate radio. Sorry, that’s just how we roll.
Rojek’s uncompromising stance has produced the only festival of its kind in this part od Europe. It’s impossible to find another event in this corner of the world that would give you an equally deep perspective on alternative music from across the globe. From New York lofts to the London suburbs. From journeys through Africa, to the hospitality of our own dark Silesian soil. The OFF Festival never let itself be pigeonholed, it never went for the easier choices, and yet it’s won a devoted audience and the attention of the entire world. Reviews in the top music press and the ever-growing numbers of foreigners visiting Silesia in the summer testify to the enthusiasm music fans from all over the world have for the festival. And maybe that’s not so surprising, considering that for hundreds of years, music has been regarded as the universal language. And that’s all that matters at the OFF Festival.
A winner of multiple music and media industry awards, and praised by fans, the OFF Festival received the prestigious European Festival Award for Best Medium-Sized Festival in January 2012, and is one of the elite few festivals nominated for best lineup. The OFF Festival has also received praise from Pitchfork. The popular website — an unquestioned authority in the world of music — named the OFF Festival among the world’s 20 essential summer festivals in 2012.
