    RW hinted at names still coming today in a Facebook comment. I think we're going back to our weekly Friday 4pm packages.
  2. Rock Werchter 2018

    I'm expecting a batch of smaller/midsized names tomorrow, considering we've already had 2 self-confirmations this week.
  3. Rock Werchter 2018

    Wouldn't be surprised if they're subs. Sold out one of Belgium's biggest arena's twice last December, only a few months after subbing at Pukkelpop.
  4. Rock Werchter 2018

    David Byrne self-confirmed on his website. That and the Jack White tour dates. Hard to believe that there wouldn't be an announcement this week.
  5. Rock Werchter 2018

    I don't think we have to worry about the lineup though. Expecting it to very much top the NOS Alive one and at the least coming close to the Mad Cool one (for the big names). We know that Arctic Monkeys and Jack White (2 obvious additions) are holding back announcements so far, and tour dates for some other big shots (i.e. Snow Patrol, NIN and Tame Impala) have been scarce as well. On top of that The Killers still have that arena show coming up. January could become an interesting month. Some credible people on other forums are claiming that Editors are topping TW Classic (tba this week). Live Nation has placed the festival darling (and replacement nr 1 if a headliner falls through) at a different event, meaning that RW is all set for more interesting headliners.
  6. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    That was before being catapulted to worldwide headline status though. Having Arctics headlining a festival of this capacity (with Pinkpop and Lowlands being contenders) is at least on par with the Radiohead booking last year.

    Because the press release of the PJ announcement states 4 headliners have been announced. But we all know Nick Cave is the smaller one in a coheadliner structure, so it shouldn't matter all that much what name you put on it.
  8. Rock Werchter 2018

    The "Friday" tab has been added to the lineup page on the website. Last week they did the same a few hours before the PJ announcement...

    No way that they're going to miss out on The XX. Huge popularity here at the moment, definitely bigger than The Killers and Nick Cave. I'm not so sure about Muse actually. If they aren't touring on the back of a new album, I think RW will give it a miss and keep Muse for 2019.
  10. Rock Werchter 2018

    That only goes for international acts.
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    Florence doesn't have enough backing her up to get 3 major slots in 4 editions. And I recall hearing something about only doing a few European fests in 2018. Nailed on for 2019, I'd say.
  12. Rock Werchter 2018

    The Killers won't be announced just yet, given that their Belgian show still has to sell out. War On Drugs prztty much ruled out btw. Confirmed yesterday in a Belgian tv show that he's coming back to Belgium in August (aka Pukkelpop).
  13. Rock Werchter 2018

    QOTSA, Gorillaz and The xx easily sell out Belgium's biggest venues, and have an aknowledged headliner status all over Europe's major fests. I don't see how this would be sub par RW level or comparable to Editors? This is just a necessary evolution, we cannot keep having that KoL-PJ-Rammstein-Metallica-etc cycle forever. And I prefer them pushing up crowd favourites to headliner status, rather than going all out with U2/Rolling Stones/Guns n Roses and blowing all the budget for the rest of the lineup. And 2017 proved that a top heavy poster doesn't make a great lineup.
  14. Rock Werchter 2018

    They have to do with what's touring though. Bar PJ I don't see a lot of acts the size of Metallica/McCartney/Foos/etc for the moment.
  15. Rock Werchter 2018

    But day tickets always go on sale at the same time as combi tickets, so they're bound to announce more names next week.
