Foo Fighters have been confirmed as the second headliners of Open'er Festival 2017, after Radiohead were previously announced

Foo Fighters have been confirmed as headliners of Open'er Festival 2017.

The rock band - comprised of Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, and Chris Shiflett - will take to the stage at the Polish festival which is held in Gdynia from June 28 to July 01.

Foo Fighters will join the previously announced Radiohead on the festival's bill, with no other acts having been confirmed to appear as of yet.

The appearance of the band at the same festival as Radiohead has sparked rumours about the possibility of the 'Everlong' musician's performing at Glastonbury Festival, as the 'Creep' hitmakers are also making an appearance at the iconic English festival five days before they make their way to Poland.

The news of the Open'er slot comes after the 'Best of You' hitmakers recently announced they would also be making an appearance at Portugal's Nos Alive Festival next year, with fans now speculating a string of European live dates to follow.

And the promise of new shows for the 'Walk' musicians will be well received by fans, after it was previously speculated that frontman Dave Grohl was working on material for a project separate to Foo Fighters.

Producer Butch Vig said previously: "I just met with Dave and he's been writing some songs, but there are no plans for more Foos. I know he talked about another 'Sonic Highways', but nothing's come to fruition yet ... But hopefully I'll be in the studio again in the fall. If I'm back in with the Foo Fighters again, that ... I don't really know."

At the start of the month, drummer Taylor Hawkins also announced a solo debut entitled 'KOTA', which will be released on Friday (11.11.16).

Tickets for Open'er Festival are on sale now through the festival's website.
