Rock Werchter, THE Belgian festival not to be missed!
It is yesterday that the doors to Rock Werchter opened to thousands of festival-fanatics. Located just outside of Brussels, this year’s festival promises to be epic, with massive headliners like Radiohead, the Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Arcade Fire and Lorde.
Rock Werchter is an institution in Belgium. The first edition opened its doors to the public in 1976 and has been the most awaited summer rendez-vous of all the festivalgoers ever since. This year, the four main stages will gather about 80 different bands, which means you’ll have to make choices!
Yesterday, Arcade Fire, Xavier Rudd, Kings of Leon and Mura Masa gave breath-taking performances. Tonight, Dua Lipa will hold the Klub C stage from 7pm, followed by The Pretenders, who haven’t performed at the Belgian festival in 30 years.
Saturday will offer music for every taste: Linkin Park, System of a Down and Charli XCX will be on stage. So whether you’re into pop music or heavy metal, the program will delight you.
Finally, for the last day of the festival, you’ll be able to see The Lumineers, Rag’n’Bone Man, Soulwax and Alt-J.
If you’re going to Werchter, have a bloody good time! If not, maybe this year’s line up will make you want to book tickets for the 2018 edition.
