I bet we'll get some new names next week. Either Arcitc Monkeys as a headliner or several smaller names.

Yeah gotta be next week... surely... 

Who's everyone hoping for? arctic monkeys, jack white (almost impossible though sadly), franz ferdinand, tame impala, NIN, paramore, everything everything, sampha, st vincent, wolf alice, thundercat would make me happy

Here's the OPEN AIR ST. GALLEN announcement, which takes place a few days before Open'er. Interesting The Killers are still being added to festivals at this late stage...

L’image contient peut-être : texte

The same date of the PS poster reveal, the one in which Flow and Oya are expected to announce another headliner. Sounds like a big tour announcement.

Never been to Opener Before ( previously been to Rock Werchter and Nos Alive) but tempted to go this year because of Depeche Mode and Massive Attack=) Can anyone fill me in on if the festival is good or not? Is it possible to get to the festival if I stay in a hotel in Gdynia? Thanks in advance!

Been there 2015 for one day. There are Shuttle busses from Gdynia station to the festival. About 10 min to walk from there. Going well.

The festival site is not very nice. Stages on an airfield. Drinking areas: no alcohol allowed outside those. With distracting a security and a mate carrying it out it's possible. Most exits of the drinking area have 2 securities so you have to wait for a good moment. Not very comfortable and nonsense.

Not the nicest place to be but it was ok.

Crowd was quite good.

Thanks for the info. Shame about the drinking areas;) On the other hand the atmosphere is more important for me so I'm glad that the crowd is good.

I'd say Nick Cave or The Killers are the most safe bet.

Nick Cave didn't headline in 2013, so I really doubt he will headline now. The Killers are probable, but all signs point to Arctic Monkeys.

These drinking areas are required by law, so there's nothing the festival can do about it. The crowd is really good, it is really close to the sea (5 minutes by bus and then 5 minuts on foot), so you can relax on the beach before gigs. Also, if you have enough time, you can visit Gdańsk and Sopot, which are one of the most popular tourist destinations in Poland. If you have any further questions, I'll be glad to help you.

Thanks for answering=) Been to Gdansk before and liked it. When do tickets generally sell out?

Never ;) I think it happened only twice and these were one-day tickets (e.g. in 2016 when RHCP headlined), so you don't have to worry about it.

Cave moved to headliner slots after 2013. 

But in all fairness we all know this is about Arctic Monkeys.

Been there in 2017. Something changed in Polish law? Cause there was no problem with taking beer outside. Unlike my previous Open'ers (2014 and 2015)

I was there last year (2017), there were several staff (trying to) stop people leaving the drinking areas all day.

As far as I know there weren't any changes, so either you were lucky or you were drinking low-alcohol beers, cause these are allowed (up to 3,5% I guess). I remember I was stopped several times too last year.

That is true only special low alcohol level Heineken  was sold in the concerts area and it was undrinkable. In the eating areas normal Heineken was sold but you couldn't take it outside of the fenced area.
