Back in the day, before he became a celebrated music star of his own right, he would simply play his favourite records for his friends, or make them tapes, forcing them to listen to his latest discoveries. He went on to become one of the best-selling Polish artists of all time, regularly playing tracks that he found fascinating or had caught his attention on the radio. And he still does actually… But back in 2005 Rojek found a new, all-encompassing way to share good music with others. The perfect way to experience this music together with others and to share the emotions carried by the sound. And so it was that OFF Festival was created.
Last year marked the 5th anniversary of Artur Rojek’s loud brainchild and an exciting development for the festival as it moved from it’s former home, the Skupna Water Park in Myslowice to a brand new location at Dolina Trzech Stawow, which translates to ‘Three Lake Valley’, in Katowice – a beautiful green oasis in the heart of industrial Silesia.
OFF Festival is about more than just music. It also features a number of accompanying events: film, art, performance and poetry. It’s also an event which keeps the environment in mind – all food and drinks come in environmentally-friendly packaging and there is a big emphasis on recycling. It’s a completely safe place, an event where diverse tastes and appearances are welcomed and where everyone is the same because everyone is different.
