    My son went there and loved it. Last thing he would have wanted was to bump into his old man. I’ll maybe give it a bash 

    My daughter will come with me to Rock Werchter next summer....as she did this summer and in 2016 :)

    I think we are, along with thetime, are the old farts on this forum :P

    Why do you think that? Of course Nick is a headliner. He's a headliner on every 2018 festival he's playing. But they'll add a similar sized headliner on the same day, for sure. 

    Last 3 times Nick Cave played RW:

    2009:  2ManyDJs -- Kings of Leon -- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    2011:  The Black Eyed Peas -- A-Trak -- Iron Maiden - Grinderman
    2013:  Rammstein -- Volbeat -- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    ....If he was 3rd down twice and fourth down once the last 3 times he played, why should he headline now?

    So glad i picked NOS ALIVE over werchter this year

    And why is that? Because announcements are coming late this year?

    I'm sure next summer when we're all at RW who will have a lot better line up then NOS Alivem, we'll all be pretty devastated how late the announcements came....!

    Pearl Jam was announced at 12 belgian time I think. Can't make their minds up this year!

    No, Pearl Jam was announced much earlier....9am I think Belgian time. I remember I was still at home getting ready for work when I saw the Pearl Jam announcement (I leave the house around 8:15, that's 9:15 Belgian time). :)

  7. Someone said that The XX could be a dance-act rather then a plain headliner. Could this be possible then:

    Thursday: Gorillaz - Queens of the Stone Age - Kasabian...
    Friday - The XX - Arctic Monkeys - Macklemore...
    Saturday: Pearl Jam - The Killers - Franz Ferdinand
    Sunday: Muse - Nick Cave - 30 Second to Mars...

    Probably mentioned earlier in the thread but what are the chances for Depeche Mode to appear? 

    They already have dates confirmed on Thursday, Saturday and Monday. I can't seen them play 3 nights in a row so unfortunately I'd say slim, close to non....

    Had a go at updating my prediction, again sorry if any of the placements are off. I'm from the UK so had to guess a bit with some ordering as I'm not sure how similar popularity is in Belgium for some acts. Anyway here we go...


    Gorillaz - QOTSA - Volbeat - Run the Jewels - Enter Shikari - Marmozets - De Staat

    The Cure - Nine Inch Nails - Triggerfinger - Biffy Clyro - Iggy Pop -  The Hives - Highly Suspect

    The XX - The Killers - Franz Ferdinand - Two Door Cinema Club - Kaleo - Wolf Alice - To Love

    Pearl Jam - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Snow Patrol - Rise Against - Skunk Anansie - Brian Fallon and the Howling Weather - Black Pistol Fire

    That's maybe the weakest set of headliners I've seen at RW. Pearl Jam the only "big" headliner...
