Open'er 2012 has expanded, with Yeasayer, The Ting Tings and more being added to the bill.

Held in Gydynia, Open'er has rapidly blossomed into one of Eastern Europe's most high profile events. Grabbing a series of big name headlines, the festival is now beginning to flesh out the rest of its bill.

American indie oddballs Yeasayer are planning to take part, with work continuing on their third album. The follow up to 'Odd Blood' has taken some time to arrive, with fans only having a Record Store Day seven inch to show for two years of waiting.

Breaking cover, Yeasayer have joined the line up for Open'er. The band will take part in the Polish event, alongside returning Salford pop duo The Ting Tings.

Continuing to focus on the Polish music scene, Open'er will also showcase some emerging talent from Eastern Europe. Fisz Emade Tworzywo will focus on their opening trilogy of records, while Kapela Ze Wsi Warszawa and Cool Kids of Death are also due to take part.

Elsewhere, North American reggae group Soldiers Of Jah Army are due to perform at Open'er with plenty more additions due in the run up to the festival.

Tickets are on sale now.

YEASAYER / THE TING TINGS / SOJA / KAPELA ZE WSI WARSZAWA / FISZ EMADE TWORZYWO / COOL KIDS OF DEATH / PABLOPAVO AND PRACZAS / UL/KR
