Blur Confirmed As First Open’er Festival Headliner

This is the third European headlining slot that the four-piece have confirmed, following Rock Werchter and Primavera Sound.

Blur have been confirmed as the headliner for next year’s Open’er Festival.

Set to take place from 3rd to the 6th July in Gdynia, the Britpop legends will be heading up the line-up for the Polish festival.

This is the third European headlining slot that the four-piece have confirmed, following on from their previously announced appearances at Rock Werchter and Primavera Sound.

Speaking of the booking, Open’er Festival themselves have made the following comments:

‘In the November greyness, the overwhelming pessimism, crisis in Europe in Poland and the growing opportunism, faced with the dominance of mainstream and catering for the least ambitious tastes and the conviction that “we can’t do it”, again, it’s time to say STOP. Today, we’re starting another countdown to Open’er, where we’ll prove that we’re only interested in all that is important and interesting in modern music, as well as all things of value in the modern art, once again to prove that there’s so many of us.

I love this moment: the first headliner, the first announcements, as they take us into the next festival year, the more so when we make dreams of so many festival fans come true, and rise to their expectations with the first artist we announce. Ladies and Gentlemen, BLUR are the first Heineken Open’er 2013 headliner!’
