Poland's Finest Music Festival Open'er Announces Chromeo, Jagwar Ma, Royal Blood and Further Acts for 2014 


Three years ago, Chromeo closed the jubilee Open'er Festival edition with an enormous party on the Tent Stage. This year, they make their return to Gdynia with the new album "White Women" in tow. Guests on their new album include Solange, Ezra of Vampire Weekend and Toro y Moi. With hits the likes of "Tenderoni" or "Don't Turn the Lights On", expect one of the most energetic and dance-worthy sets of the festival.

Maya Jane Coles

Since storming onto the scene in 2010 Maya Jane Coles has established herself as one of the most acclaimed female DJs and producers in the world.  She made her own compilation in the prestigious "Fabric" series, putting her name to its celebratory 75th edition as well as celebrated releases for !K7 Records and a stunning Boiler Room set. Last year, she released her debut album "Comfort", giving her fans a solid dose of deep house - the genre in which she feels most comfortable. Maya Jane Coles plays the Beat Stage on July 3.

Karen Marie Ørsted goes in the business by the name MØ.  Combining her childhood fascination with Spice Girls pop and alternative bands the likes of Sonic Youth, Black Flag and Yeah Yeah Yeahs she has positioned herself alongside fellow Scandinavian and this year's Open’er artist Lykke Li, as well as Lana del Rey and Grimes as one of the most exciting female artists around. After touring the entire world with an electro-punk band, she decided to follow her own path towards electronica. Having earned support from the likes of Avicii and Major Lazer, whom she accompanied on tour, her singles, the swinging "Don't Wanna Dance" and Diplo-produced, danceable "XXX 88" preceded her critically acclaimed debut album "No Mythologies To Follow", released in March 2014. Already famous for her energetic live shows, MØ will perform one of them, her first ever one in Poland, at Open’er Festival.

Royal Blood

Could a band's career start with a t-shirt? Sure, if an Arctic Monkey wears it onstage at Glastonbury Festival. Royal Blood first came to the music fans' attention thanks to Monkeys' drummer Matt Helders T-shirt choice. If you wanted to dig deeper, you could find out that Royal Blood hail from Brighton, are a rhythm section duo (just bass and drums). They were listed for BBC Sound Of 2014, were confirmed as the support act during the Arctic Monkeys' two massive gigs in London's Finsbury Park, did a solo tour of the UK and are currently recording their debut album for Warner Music. A few months ago, a reviewer with The Guardian predicted they were going to “blow away festival crowds next summer.” We’ll find out about that at Open’er!

Jagwar Ma

Having come together in Sydney when Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield bonded over a mutual passion of melody and experimental beats, everyone who listened to their first album, "Howlin", knows that over a few years of their activity, Jagwar Ma have continued to grow in both of these areas. Released last summer, "Howlin'" is a trip through Australian beaches, Berlin clubs and French sunflower fields, psychedelic enough to suspect that what fuelled it might not've been entirely legal. Jagwar Ma have quickly scored a status of one of the best debuts of 2013, jumped onto the bandwagon with The xx and Foals, confirming their class this year at numerous festivals. They perform on Open’er’s ALTER STAGE.
