Blur is the first Open’er headliner!
The next year’s festival will take place on July 3-6 in Gdynia! The first confirmed artist are British band Blur. Today, tickets go on sale at a special reduced price.
"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!"

Today, Open’er joins Primavera Sound and Rock Werchter, proud to announce the first concert from one of the greatest British bands in history- Blur! Their live shows, albeit rare over the last few years, always get the best reviews both from fans and journalists, and their steady top position among global alternative rock stars make them stir interest even without a new album. With seven records released and over a dozen hit singles to their credit, they have enough material to play a legendary concert at Open'er.
