Radiohead named as first headliner of Open’er festival

News follows confirmation that Radiohead are headlining Glastonbury

Radiohead have been confirmed as the first headliner of Open’er festival in Poland for 2017.

The band will play the Polish festival on Wednesday June 28, five days after they headline the Friday of Glastonbury on June 23.

It’s the first time Radiohead have played at Open’er, though Jonny Greenwood has performed solo shows there in 2012 and 2015.

Radiohead are the first act to be announced for Open’er, which takes place at Kosakowo Aiport in Gdynia from June 28-July 1. Tickets are on sale now at 107e (£95.50) from the festival’s website for four-day passes.

 

This year’s Open’er saw sets by Florence And The Machine, Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Red Hot Chili Peppers, PJ Harvey, The Last Shadow Puppets, The 1975, Bastille, At The Drive-In, Pharrell, Chvrches, Wiz Khalifa, Skepta, M83, Tame Impala, Mac Demarco and Savages.

The news of Radiohead’s appearance follows confirmation that the band are headlining Glastonbury for the first time since 2003 next year. They last played a British festival when they made a secret Park Stage appearance at Glastonbury in 2011 for ‘The King Of Limbs’.

Since touring began in May for new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, Radiohead have played 26 shows. Glastonbury and Open’er are their only confirmed gigs for next year so far.
