BJÖRK confirmed as first headline act for Heineken Open’er Festival 2012

Her appearance at Open’er is the first festival performance to be announced for 2012 anywhere in the world and is sure to be another very special moment for the festival. Taking place from the 4th to the 7th July 2012 at Kosakowo Airfield, Gdynia, Björk will perform to over 60,000 festival goers and will be a highlight of what promises to be a stellar year for Open’er.  

BjorkOn her new album, Icelandic singer-composer-producer-sound-fetishist Björk moves deeper into the sonic abyss of her own creation, a so-called secret place that with each passing release seems to crystallize her aesthetic even further. An hourlong work that twinkles and shimmers, “Biophilia,” her seventh release, continues to explore a universe she's built from scratch. If you're even vaguely familiar with the singer over the last two decades, you know what you'll be getting in a new Björk full-length — at least musically: expansive electronic/acoustic structures that move in Frank Gehry-esque swoops as digital shards of rhythms and pretty sounds fly through your ears.

Mikolaj Ziolkowski, Alter Art commented: “We are starting a new decade of Open’er Festival and we have started it just as we dreamed it – with a performance from an artist that is exquisite, unique and truly one-of-a-kind. An artist that uncloses and transgresses searches and inspires.  An artist that is charismatic and daring. We are proud and honoured to be the first to announce an artist that is going to be a major feature of the 2012 global festival scene.  An artist, a revolutionnaire – Björk to headline Open’er 2012!”
