The 2011 line-up is still adding acts, but with Coldplay already signed up, Open'er likely will best itself with an amazing variety of top international dance, rock and pop artists being supported by Poland's finest acts:

The Opener has got to be one of the best organized festivals. Alterart do a brilliant job, the bus services shipping people in from Gydinia is spot on. I was at the opener in 2008,2009 and 2010, this year was great but it was hard to surpass 2009 because of the line up ( for me it could not get any better). This year the opener really took on a new feel and it now has the international feel with a draw of festival goers from all over Europe. 2011 it will be the Coke festival in Krakow for me. The word is out on the opener and I still like my rough diamonds.Enjoy and do not miss the opportunity of going to the Opener, the Polish people are fantastic and know how to party.

Best festival and the best audio experience since I heard Pink Floyd play at Valle Hovin in Norway in the 1980's. The most important thing and that is number one's music experience, and we have the logistics of travel, eating, sleeping, toilet, tendon and artist deposits which is number 2 Both were very good, perhaps the most impressive was the logistics ... Not seen anything like it ever!

Great line-up but major organisational cock-ups. For starters, they run out of wristbands on day one.

Wow, totally loved the Opener Fest. Especially as I knew nothing about it until I arrived in Gdansk.(Talk about being in the right place at the right time - half my favourite UK bands all together). Top fest!

2008 was amazing, and the 2009 lineup is absolutely tops. Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys! I'll be there.
