We’re going to a festival in an airport in Poland – why on earth are you packing shorts? Because Open’er happens to be close to Sopot, Poland’s most upmarket seaside resort. And the festival doesn’t really kick off until mid-afternoon and goes on ‘til three or four, so I’m planning on catching a few rays.

But you’ll miss the awesome bands! The great thing about Open’er is that it’s pretty tough to miss the good stuff. Based on an airstrip with three stages along its length, sets are timed to avoid clashes, even though it’s a hefty trek from one end to the other.
