OFF Festival Katowice 2017 Down to the Hour: Presenting a Detailed Program

Who, when, where? We’re announcing a detailed schedule for the most magnificent weekend in August. One-day tickets are also now on sale, but with a program this rich and diverse, how do pick just one day?

From visionaries to madmen, punk rock prophets to electronic shamans, distorted guitars to toned-down acoustic sounds: the OFF Festival’s four stages will host an extraordinary, uncompromising and eye-opening selection of music from all corners of the globe and every genre imaginable from August 4 to 6. You’ll be hard pressed to hear it all and take it all in, even just a for a moment, but at least today’s detailed schedule will let you make the most of this intense weekend.

If you can’t be with us from Friday to Sunday (or, to be precise, the early hours of Monday morning), you can now purchase a ticket for a single day of the festival for 160 PLN (38 euro). One-day tickets will also be available at the gate for 170 PLN. Three-day passes for the entire festival are still on sale. Buy tickets here:
