Open’er Festival


Summer is coming. Have you already
planned your holidays? Poland is offering you
Open’er
Festival
which
this year takes place between 28.06-01.07 in Gdynia – Kosakowo
Airport.

“Open’er is one of the most amazing music
experiences you can imagine. If you are in Poland at the time of the festival,
it’s a must for you to join this awesome event! I was there already twice –
first time in 2011 for the concert of Coldplay and in 2016 for Florence and the
Machine performance. And trust me… Once you start, you can never stop. You
will fall in love with Gdynia and Open’er!”, says one of the Open’er fans.
Indeed, in 2016 Open’er was awarded “Promoter of the year” by European Festival
Awards and is a member of Yourope and stating: “We are European festival
promoters, bringing culture, music, art and design to millions of young people
every year.  Our events are a peaceful and joyful get together of many
different people in a limited space over a limited time. Together with our
audience we are a community through our passion for music, culture and through
our love of festivals.” (source:

).

Since 2002 the festival has evolved into one of the
most important music events in Poland and in Europe. It was Open’er which first
introduced the system of festival wristbands. It features important artists who
never visited Poland before, and often played there just
once: Blur, Prince, Coldplay, The Strokes, Snoop Dogg, The
White Stripes, Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, Kanye West, Muse, Kings Of Leon,
Arctic Monkeys, Justice, Mumford &
Sons
or
Interpol.
