To paraphrase OFF states it "isn’t trendy", "it’s way ahead of trends". It's an bold statement but what is true is the artists at OFF are definitely still on the upward curve.Festival Art Director, Artur Rojek, strives to get the greatest acts in alternative music to perform every year. It’s hard to boil the OFF Festival down to a single genre, scene, or style, what holds the festival’s philosophy together is its openness to everything that challenges the products served up in the mainstream.OFF doesn't necessarily do “names” the line-up is not littered with faces you recognize from MTV, you won’t hear the hits they play on corporate radio. OFF Festival is really an orchestrated musical anarchy where lords of noise play alongside melodic geniuses, and the heroes of tomorrow opening for the legends of the past; on reflection it’s much like Katowice itself.

KATOWICEKatowice is one of the most rapidly developing Polish metropolises. Katowice is the former capital of the Polish heavy industry but in the last 10 years it has been transformed into a modern, municipal city. OFF Festival began in 2006 in Mysłowice but in 2009 took a different direction and moved to Katowice in 2010 with Artur Rojek, former leader of the bands Myslovitz and Lenny Valentino at its helm.

The park is stretched between two housing estates: Osiedle Paderewskiego and Muchowiec (at Gornoslaska and Murckowska streets).

There are many accommodation places near the park.
