Party at night, sleep in the day
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Florence + The Machine are set to feature at Open’er 2016, a quirky music and arts festival located in an old airbase in Poland’s Gdynia area on the Baltic coastline. Enjoy big acts on the main stage, try Now Stage for the more unusual and reserve Beat Stage to fulfill your electro needs. This is a great chance to witness the latest Polish fashion and bands with extreme names (eg. Eltron John, Bipolar Bears and Vavamuffin). Head to the periphery for food stalls a-plenty as well as those bunker discos for later on.
Don’t panic on missing the first act of the day at Open’er where the festival doesn’t start until 4pm each day (and goes to 5am!). If you are up early, join fellow revelers as they head to Gdynia’s nearby beaches to have a soak in prep for another big night. Don’t forget to check out the arts scene, thriving with films, documentaries, local theatre troups and giant installations (these will be hard to miss).
When is it?
Tips and tricks
Open’er attracts around 60,000 per year. Ask Universal Traveller to help with flights, accommodation, etc. so you don’t miss out.
With festival opening each day in The PM, it is a good one for those who like to stay up all-night and sleep all-day.
Vegetarian food options are limited (mainly to Pierogi - Polish dumplings).
Alcohol is not to be consumed in the main arena and only in designated areas including the camping grounds.
Yes, you can camp next to the festival but remember camping tickets are sold separately.
Festival tickets are exchanged for wrist-bands at the gate – which also allow you on the free shuttle bus service to Gydnia where there are beaches, shops, accommodation options, etc.
