OFF Festival is a unique event on the map of summer music festivals in Europe. The organizers invite only indie, low-fi, experimental, and avant-garde artists who are worth showing, including bands like The Flaming Lips and Dinosaur Jr. This year’s special event is devoted to Frederic Chopin. Born in Poland 200 years ago, the composer’s music will be mixed by artists such as Fennesz and William Basiński. In addition, well-known artists, like Wilhelm Sasnal, are invited every year to paint murals in the city. This year, the OFF Festival has changed the location from Poland’s Mysłowice to Katowice. Definitely worth visiting.
