After this year’s absence in Gdynia, A$AP ROCKY doesn’t give up and joins Open’er Festival 2020!
Rakim Mayers began his career as a teenager and in 2007, he joined the famous New York collective A$AP Mob, from which his stage name comes from. The debut mixtape “Live Love A$AP” was released in 2011, and the next two albums “Long Live A$AP” (2011) and “At Long Last A$AP” (2015) debuted at the top of the Billboard 200.
His last album was one of the most important rap records of last year. “Testing” won the critics and fans of the New York rapper, gaining the opinion of the most mature work in Flacko’s discography, which he himself admitted in an interview with “GQ”: “I prefer to experiment and grow with my audience. What I’m doing now is not just raping – it’s making music. ” The nearly hourly album is not repackaged with guests, but those who appear on it – Moby, Frank Ocean, FKA Twigs or Skepta – found themselves perfectly in the company of the main character.
The second headliner announced American band TWENTY ONE PILOTS who play on Thursday 2nd July on the Orange Main Stage!
This year the band is celebrating their 10th birthday and there is something to celebrate. Thanks to billions of views and plays of such songs as “Stressed Out”, “Heathens” or “Ride”, a huge bag of awards (including Grammy statuettes, MTV EMA and Billboard Awards) and one of the most faithful fanbases in the world, TWENTY ONE PILOTS are at the forefront of the most important alternative bands of recent years. The icing on the cake is undoubtedly the fact that the album “Blurryface” has been officially hailed as the best-selling rock album of the decade (Billboard).
In the works of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun, rock, electronics, hip-hop and synthesizer-driven alternative pop combine in a rare symbiosis. However, the musical climate they created only emphasizes the sensitive themes of anxiety and mental health that have appeared repeatedly in their songs. The duo has 5 albums. The last, “Trench”, appeared last year, debuting in second place on the Billboard 200 ranking and scoring as much as 81/100 on Metacritic. As Tyler Joseph admitted, TWENTY ONE PILOTS are already working on its successor.
