Tim Boddy headed to Open'er Festival in Gdynia, Poland, and spent too much time by the beach and possibly saw some bands.

Held in a military airfield Kosakowo, the festival is now one of Europe's largest - featuring the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Grimes, and Sigur Rós. A full review will be coming soon, but for now, here's a Photo Essay from downtown Gdynia and the festival site itself. It was hot, it rained biblically in short bursts, it had lovely bauhaus architecture all over town, it had a lot going for it.
