Fresh off of the release of their seventh album ‘The Car’, Arctic Monkeys have announced that they’ll be headlining Open’er Festival, taking place from 28th June - 1st July next year.

In our review of their most recent album, we said, “If 2018’s lunar venture ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ had long-time Arctic Monkeys fans in disarray, the Sheffield icons ditching pomade and rock riffs for a louche lounge sound, it’s unlikely ‘The Car’ will win back many defectors. But on the seventh album by the band who need no introduction, you sense that blazered auteur Alex Turner is having too much fun to care. Its ten tracks of lavish soft-rock feel like the album the 36-year-old has long aspired to make - for better or worse.”
