Legendary Label Sub Pop To Curate Stage At Off Festival 2014

Artists signed to America's legendary Sub Pop record label are frequent guests of the OFF Festival, but this time we're taking things one step further! Sub Pop will be taking over the Experimental Stage for an entire day, serving up a lineup that features Wolf Eyes, Clipping, Rose Windows, and more!

Sub Pop has changed the history of music on at least one occasion. In the late 80s Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman decided to launch their own label to promote music that was similar to the bands on SST and Touch and Go, but more listener-friendly. Sad and dirty, but catchy. The Seattle-based label took inexperienced rookies and their bands under its wing: Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney. Despite the enormous commercial success of grunge rock, the label never lost its indie cred, and has instead become a trendsetter over the last two decades. Though Sub Pop started out as a rock label, it's made a name for itself outside the guitar world, fostering the careers of such greats as The Postal Service, Fleet Foxes, and Shabazz Palaces; according to several influential music review sites, the experimental hip-hop on Black Up was the best thing to happen to music in 2011. And so we're proud to announce that Sub Pop will be one of the curators of the Experimental Stage at this year's OFF Festival. The lineup selected by the label will perform in Katowice on August 1.

Artists performing include: Wolf Eyes (Detroit, MI), Rose Windows (Seattle, WA), clipping. (Los Angeles, CA), Lyla Foy (London, UK), Protomartyr (Detroit, MI), Kaseciarz (Krakow, PL) and Wild Books (Warszawa, PL).
