A third European festival headline gig in 2013 has been confirmed for Blur today with the news that they will top the bill at the Open’er event in Poland next year.
The festival is due to take place between July 3rd-6th, and adds to the previously confirmed headline spots for Blur at Rock Werchter and Primavera Sound.
“In the November greyness, the overwhelming pessimism, crisis in Europe in Poland and the growing opportunism, faced with the dominance of mainstream and catering for the least ambitious tastes and the conviction that ‘we can’t do it’, again, it’s time to say STOP,” organisers have said.
“I love this moment: the first headliner, the first announcements, as they take us into the next festival year, the more so when we make dreams of so many festival fans come true, and rise to their expectations with the first artist we announce. Ladies and Gentlemen, BLUR are the first Heineken Open’er 2013 headliner!”
