Queens Of The Stone Age headlined day three of Open'er Festival in Gdynia, Poland last night (July 5).

Opening with 'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer' to massive cheers and moshing, the band blitzed through the first 10 minutes of their show without stopping for breath. 'You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire' and 'No One Knows' were played with extreme intensity, while recent single 'My God Is The Sun' sent the crowd wild.

Frontman Josh Homme was in a great mood, and spoke about his love for Open'er Festival and the Polish crowd throughout the set. "This is the best crowd of the tour and there's no one even fucking close," he said after 'Little Sister'. "Let's get shitfaced together," he added.

The band then followed with 'Make It Wit Chu', with Homme dedicating the song to "all the beautiful fucking ladies out there tonight". He then told security to allow girls to sit on guys' shoulders, declaring, "Let's just love the shit out of each other."

'Smooth Sailing' from new album '…Like Clockwork' and 'I Appear Missing' followed, before the band finished their headline set with 'I Think I Lost My Headache, 'Go With The Flow' and an extended version of 'A Song For The Dead.'

Earlier in the day, Palma Violets performed an hour-long set in front of a small but dedicated crowd on the Alterklub Stage. Playing songs from their debut album '180', the band were in a party mood with bassist Chilli Jesson and keyboardist Will Doyle crowdsurfing and po-going on stage. They finished their main set with '14' before returning for a short encore which included a cover of The Hot Nasties' 'Invasion Of The Tribbles'.

Meanwhile, the Main Stage was closed by The National. The band, who release their sixth album 'Trouble Will Find Me' earlier this year, played a crowd-pleasing set which included new tracks such as 'I Should Live In Salt' and 'Demons' as well as older favourites 'Bloodbuzz Ohio' and set-closer 'Terrible Love'. London brother duo Disclosure closed the Tent Stage with a massive rave.

Open'er Festival continues today (July 6) with performances from Kings Of Leon, Johnny Greenwood, Miguel and Mount Kimbie.
