Polish music festival Open’er has announced their 2020 lineup, according to Open’er. The lineup is set to feature Kendrick Lamar, FKA Twigs, A$AP Rocky, and others. The festival is set to take place from July 1-4 of this year; it will be the 18th installment of the festival since its inception in 2012.
The artists that have been announced to feature at the lineup so far are certainly intriguing. Though Kendrick Lamar has not released new music since January of 2017, he remains one of rap’s most dominant, and also mysterious figures. The last time Lamar toured following the release of DAMN, he took on the “Kung Fu Kenny” persona, so perhaps this time around his stage presence will adjust to the new music he may be potentially working on.
English born FKA Twigs has achieved early success in her career; she has performed at a myriad of festivals around the globe already, and her name being mentioned in the same breath as names like Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky is certainly an achievement in it of itself.

A$AP Rocky made international headlines during the summer of this past year when he was imprisoned in Sweden after a scuffle broke out between Rocky and a fan. He has not released any new music since the release of his album TESTING in 2018, but due to his debacle with the Swedish authorities, the demand for his performing live has been higher than it has in years. The last time Rocky took the stage was at Camp Flog Gnaw this past November; read more about Rocky’s performance at the festival here.
