Katowice, Poland -- The team at OFF Festival has added The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Notwist, Gary Wilson and the Blind Dates, and more to its 2014 event, taking place this August 1-3 in the beautiful Three Lake Valley.

Los Campesinos!, The Black Lips, Pional, Cerebral Ballzy, and Lee Bains III will also join the lineup, hitting the stage among previously announced acts like Belle and Sebastian, Deafheaven, Fuck Buttons, and Neutral Milk Hotel.

OFF Festival is a boutique camping festival with an eclectic alternative lineup.  OFF organizer Artur Rojek takes pride in keeping the festival ahead of trends, focusing on up-and-coming artists that are "less obvious and more challenging" than what you'd hear on the radio.  

Many alternative artists test out new material at OFF, as the crowd and organizers alike welcome fresh, unique sounds.  You'll find everything from rock and indie bands to black metal, neo-folk and drone acts - all spread across 5 stages, next to a Literary Cafe and a variety of super affordable food and beer options.

Festivalgoers claim this is the only place East of Berlin where you'll be exposed to bold, new artists.  Check it out for yourself - 3-day passes are on sale now, starting at €50.
