St Vincent, Alt-J, and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood to play Open’er festival

Festival takes place at Poland's Gdynia’s Babie Doły Military Airport in July

St Vincent, Alt-J, and Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood have been announced as part of the line-up for the Open’er festival in Poland.

The festival, now in its 12th year, takes place between July 1-4, at Gdynia’s Babie Doły Military Airport. In the past, it has seen performances from Pearl Jam, Faith No More, Jack White, Blur, and Arctic Monkeys, among others.

This 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.”

St Vincent’s self-titled album was last month named NME’s Album of The Year 2014. It was released on February 24 and is the fourth album from the Texan musician whose real name is Annie Clark. Clark also released a new 10-inch, featuring tracks ‘Pieta’ and ‘Sparrow’ to mark Record Store Day Black Friday.

Alt-J entered the US Billboard charts at Number Four with their second album ‘This Is All Yours’ in October. To coincide with this, the trio announced their biggest US show to date, at New York’s 18,200 capacity Madison Square Gardens, on March 30 2015.

Meanwhile, Jonny Greenwood, who will be performing in Poland with the London Contemporary Orchesta, has been working on the soundtrack for forthcoming film Inherent Vice. The soundtrack, which also features Neil Young and Minnie Ripperton, is due to be released on December 12.
