OFF Festival 2017: Interviews w/ Beak>, Artur Rojek, Ulrika Spacek, Trupa Trupa, MORE

Beak

DJ Morgan and Beak>

For our third year, KEXP returned to Katowice, Poland for OFF Music Festival, a weekend of music after our own hearts. “The OFF line-up neither favors nor discriminates against any specific genres,” explained founder (and musician himself), Artur Rojek. “What matters is the music and the quality of that music. We want the OFF Festival to be a place where budding music lovers get to witness performances by alternative legends, and festival veterans get a chance to catch up on the latest phenomena in music.”

On the first day of the festival, KEXP’s DJ Morgan had a chance to chat with Rojek about the festival, and spent some time with Warsaw pop-punk trio Guiding Lights, UK band Shame, Polish psych-rockers Trupa Trupa, Mercury Prize-nominated Scottish singer/songwriter C Duncan, and UK quintet Ulrika Spacek. She also spent some time with Bristol-based band Beak>, a project of Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Robert Plant collaborator Billy Fuller, and Will Young. Check out all the videos below, and tune into The Afternoon Show on KEXP at 3:00 PM PT to hear DJ Morgan talk about the festival. Stay tuned as we launch more videos from OFF on the KEXP Blog in the weeks to come.
