The Dead Weather, Fatboy Slim and The Hives closed Heineken Open'er Festival in Poland last night (July 4).

Jack White's band played songs from their debut record 'Horehound' and follow-up album 'Sea Of Cowards'. Alison Mosshart took on lead vocal duties for most of the set but took a one song break with Jack White performing 'You Just Can't Win' for fans.

White, who was wearing a black, feathered hat, asked the crowd: "You OK Poland? How have you been?" The audience screamed back at the singer, prompting White to reply: "Sounds like you've been OK!"

Earlier that day The Hives were spotted warming up and stretching backstage before they played the Main Stage dressed in black and white sailor suits.

Lead singer Pelle Almqvist told the crowd before the band kicked off a version of 2002 single 'Hate To Say I Told You So': "Do you know what's going to happen now? Well I do, and that is what's making me feel so fucking good."

Wild Beasts started their set on the Tent Stage to a half-full marquee when their gig overlapped with the Swedish band's show. But the crowd soon grew and the boys played 'Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants' and 'All The King's Men'.

Singer Hayden Thorpe told the audience: "This is our first ever day in Poland, we're very happy to be here. This is a great introduction to you so thank you."

Fatboy Slim closed the festival with a crowd pleasing set of singles on the Main Stage. Cook played 'Right Here, Right Now' and 'Weapon of Choice' during his midnight gig to hundreds of sweaty fans.

The DJ stood in front of huge screens showing footage of thunder storms and the original Charlie And The Chocolate Factory film.
