Kendrick Lamar, Thurston Moore and Chet Faker to play Poland’s Open’er festival

Other acts added to line-up include Hozier, Flume, Tom Odell and Swans

Kendrick Lamar, Thurston Moore and Chet Faker have been announced as part of the line-up for the Open’er festival in Poland.

The event, now in its 14th year, takes place between July 1-4, at Gdynia’s Babie Doly Military Airport. Other acts added to the line-up are Hozier, Flume, Tom Odell, Swans, Eagles of Death Metal, Jose Gonzalez and The Dumplings. They will join previously announced headliners Kasabian, as well as St Vincent, Alt-J and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.

Tickets are available from the Open’er Festival website now, with a four-day ticket with camping costing €150 (£113).

In the past, Open’er festival has seen performances from Pearl Jam, Faith No More, Jack White, Blur, and Arctic Monkeys, among others. Last summer, Black Keys said Open’er had “ten times the energy” of Glastonbury after headlining the Polish event, a sentiment echoed by Alana Haim, who told the Open’er crowd: “We’ve been on tour for two years and this is the craziest crowd I’ve ever seen.”

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar debuted a new untitled track on US TV show The Colbert Report in December. The song was the second to be taken from Lamar’s highly-anticipated forthcoming new album – his follow up to 2012’s ‘Good Kid, M.A.A.D City’.

Thurston Moore’s new album ‘The Best Day’ was released in October. It was Moore’s fourth solo album following 2011’s ‘Demolished Thoughts’ and was recorded alongside a backing band comprising Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe and Chrome Hoof guitarist James Sedwards.
