Opener’15

It was my very first Opener. (2015 July 1-4 in Gdynia). For us it was such a magical time because we waited for it whole year. We were talking about line-ups and artists and preparing for festival since September 1st in 2014 when we bought fan tickets.

I took Zenit11 camera with Kodak Color Plus film. Actually, it is forbidden to take camera to Opener area but they do not consider Zenit as professional one – so they let me in. I also was using Polaroid 600 camera there.

2015 Opener Line-up had Alabama Shakes, A$AP Rocky, Alt-J, Chet Faker, Die Antwoord (!!), Disclosure, Eagles of Death Metal, Faithless, Flume, Johnny Greenwood, Jose Gonzalez, Kasabian (!!), Modest Mouse, St Vincent, Swans, The Prodigy. Such a wonderful line-up for 4 days. 

Funny was always to ask people to take photo with Polaroid of all us because mostly people there were like – what to push, whats next and so on.

This shot was taken when were running to see Chet Faker. Auguste is happy because we managed to take 1 beer from car and nobody took it from us.   

Here is the most festival shot of Dziugas and Marija. I asked them to kiss and Marija found this place. They are very beautiful couple.

This is me and my close friend Tomas who is musician as well and one day he will perform at Opener Stage. I had pastel violet hair near roots.   This is one of the first shows where you see A$AP Rocky. I waited for him so much.   Beach Gdynia Babie Doly where we were resting. Its like 5km from camping. Mykolas which is first from right side looks like he is representing dentist job.

This place was our safe spot. If someone loses you, you know where to find your friend.
