Returning for a glorious eighth bout, Poland's OFF Festival has announced the first slew of acts on the bill. Taking place August 2-4 in Katowice, the festival has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2006, having featured massive names like Mogwai,The Flaming Lips and The National. This year is proving to be no exception, with much-loved indie rockers Deerhunter leading the pack of announcements. Also performing are: Laurel Halo, the experimental electronic songstress with a penchant for techno and quirk, Canadian noise-pop threesome METZ, the much-hyped Merchandise and Jens Lekman, whose most recent album dominated 'Best Of 2012' lists. It's a stellar start to the festival which is fast becoming a European staple. Grab tickets and more details here, if you can speak Polish.
