Thurston Moore is amongst the latest wave of additions to Poland's OFF Festival.

Now into its seventh year, OFF Festival has established a reputation as one of Europe's best value left field festivals. Offering something quite different, the influx of affordable flights has put the event on the map for British fans.

Returning this summer, OFF Festival has just announced another waves of new names on the line up. Sonic Youth guitarist Thurston Moore is set to play a solo set at the Polish festival, marking a rare return to Eastern Europe.

Last year's meditative set 'Demolished Thoughts' gained widespread praise, finding Thurston Moore swapping the dissonance and electricity of his day job for something more soothing, acoustic, elegiac.

A beautiful record, the subsequent shows have been universally well received. Due to perform at OFF Festival, Thurston Moore will be joined by the likes of American troubadour Josh T Pearson, Akron / Family and more.

Megafaun have been added to the bill, while the experimental tip includes anbb: alva noto & blixa bargeld - a project which matches a former Bad Seed with a renowned expert in cold precision.

Metal heroes Baroness will appear, while OFF's commitment to Polish talent will witness sets from Nosowska, Afro Kolektyw? and more.
