    looking at pinkpop and guessing we will see some names at rw - sigrid, jess glyne, years and years, - woud all seem cop outs imo. We already have enough of this genre.

    Editors are making me feel they could be Friday closer?

    NG would be good- nothing but thieves were incredible last year so they won't do two years in a row i expect.

    Alan Walker is at victorious so don't mind him not being announced but from what i've heard of him he's good.


    Years and Years are doing Werchter Boutique and Editors TW Classic.....both ruled out.

    Original lineup minus D'arcy.

    But can't see it happening just yet. Last time SP played Belgium was headlining Dour for about 6000-7000 people. Ain't no Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha biffing that back up to RW headliner. And current rumours are saying an American tour this Summer, rest of the world later.

    Smashing Pumpkins and Tool would make that Friday unbelievably good.... :D

    Totally agreed with @Gossard , not a fan of Linkin Park, nor SOAD, and I love listening to Radiohead. I was behind the pit every time; Big disappointment with Radiohead, bad starting of the set, so that we left at the wrong moment, cause apparently they started to play their good songs at that moment, but we already debated it on this topic. And on the contrary, and to my surprise, I found that SOAD and Linkin Park both were excellent, and clearly two of the best acts of last year. Youtube can confirm (and it was as loud as this far from the stage). 

    Anyway, Jack White - Pearl Jam is indeed probably a better combination, than any combination of last year. I'm more and more believing in a very strong and unexpected headliners combination on Friday. Did we rule out a Europe tour by Bruce Springsteen there ? Broadway shows end on 30th June. And he's a friend of The Killers, I'm sure they would be stoked to open for him.

    This video is insane....!

    I was talking about the 2 headliners. ;-)

    And while SOAD was excellent, I dare to say Radiohead was even better. 

    System of a Down is not a nu-metal band either.....

    And I can't agree with you on Radiohead. That concert is topping my list of worst bands I've seen at RW.....

    Linkin Park and Blink were awful (SOAD was great though), but this years Saturday already bowls over that day. Pearl Jam and Jack White is a much stronger combination than 2 nu metal bands from the 00s. (And most definitely more expensive too) C'mon. 

    It all comes down to taste of course. 

    Blink-182 is not a nu-metal band!

    I'm no Linkin Park fan but I thought they were amazing last year. I agree with you on SOAD, imo best act last year. Having said that, a line-up featuring Pearl Jam is always better then a line-up without Pearl Jam on it! ;)

    I'e been thinking the same thing:) Just curious who it could be then. Probably won't be a band that contrast too much with rest of the Friday line up, for ex Pantera playing after Snow Patrol;)

    In 2010 Pink played before Rammstein so who knows :P

    An Oasis reunion would be HUGE but it won't happen this summer.

    You should have a look at Kendrick, he is such a massive talent and his live show is one of the best.
    HIGHLY recommend checking this out https://streamable.com/tm1p

    Huge for who? I wouldn't be bothered and I can't see they'd be a big hit here in Iceland. I think it would be huge for the people in the UK, but I'm not too sure about the rest of the world.....

    I remember Kendrick at RW in 2013(I think), it's not for me. I simply don't like this type of music....

    Think big, think Oasis reunion :-)


    I know Kenrick Lamar is more likely to play at Pukkelpop in August, but as he's playing in Antwerp in three weeks, maybe they're waiting for that moment to launch the news. A friday as Snow Patrol - Killers - Kendrick, would be possible if you ask me.



    Is there any interest in Oasis today? They played in 2009 and I can't say that I was too impressed!

    About the possible Snow Patrol - The Killers - Kendrick Lamar night....I can't name one song by Kendrick and only one by Snow Patrol....I think it would be an early trip to the Oude Markt in Leuven for me that night :)

    Muse are in Lisbon 23rd June 2018: http://muse.mu/tour-dates.htm

    Would they not be a serious contender for Friday at RW?

    Did they just announce this? Because if they announced this some weeks ago, the question still stands, why haven't RW announced them yet if they are our fourth headliner. If Muse just announced this festival, then I'd say there is a chance we'll get them tomorrow....
