    That downvote was ridiculous... In recent years it sold out around at the end of March / beginning of April. I expected this year to sell out quicker, with the absence of Glasto, but we'll see. They usually send out a ticket alert on the socials when they are close to selling out.

    On the other hand, with Arsenal you probably have the KlubC closer, they are quite big in Belgium. Then you have Anderson .Paak, Ben Howard, Snow Patrol and London Grammar who could also fill important slots. So maybe a closing (dance) act after The Killers is max. we will get and Snow Patrol or London Grammar will be the sub. Just a thought. Why else did it take them so long to announce the major act(s) for the Friday? The Killers was obvious, because they had an Antwerp gig still to sell out. But if they have another big name up their sleeve, why wasn't it announced already to shift some tickets?

    I still feel that Friday is lacking either a big sub, co-headliner or closing (dance) act as I expect London Grammer to be headlining the Barn. Tame Impala, The XX or Justice come to mind for those spots. But with RW, you just never know...

    To clarify a bit further, the above is about the festival arena. In campings, glass is not allowed, so make sure your beers are cans and your wine/spirits are poured into plastic. No specified limits as I recall, had no problem with bringing in loads.

    Question is: will they mix the Slope acts through the regular announcements (and we might already have a few) or will they drop them seperately?

    Google maps says 25 minutes, but still very doable (and way better than queing for taxis or trains). Where are you staying? Friends of ours stayed at Palacio de Governador, which is opposite the Torre. Great hotel, had a swim there everyday and reception called us taxis back into the city centre (where we were staying) every morning.

    Torre de Belem is absolutely perfect. 15-20 minutes walk, I’d say! Easy access to City centre through train or taxi too.

    Great find! Where did you get this?

    You could easily be right. Next week is ‘Week van de eigen kweek’ (Google translate is your friend) on Belgian radio station and RW media partner Studio Brussel. Last year they announced a Belgian act every day that week, so let’s see what they’ll do this year...

    Haven’t seen one either. Guess they didn’t publish one yet.
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    Wow, really? Then I guess it would be huge for the whole world, except Iceland... ;-) No use discussing it though, won't happen.
  12. NOS Primavera Porto

    There might not be a lot of surprises, but it still seems like a very strong lineup to me. There is no day split yet, is there? Really curious who play on the Thursday, hoping a few extra names will be shared with Best Kept Secret festival.
  13. Rock Werchter 2018

    Massive Attack are headlining Les Ardentes and The National will very probably be attending and/or playing Eaux Claires, Aaron Dessner’s and Justin Vernon’s festival in the US, taking place in the same weekend. So both can be considered ruled out. Rumours seem to point to LCD’s return to the US before RW and The War on Drugs are nailed on for Pukkelpop, so they are both highly unlikely. Other than that, nice job!! Although I don’t believe they will add Muse to that friday with a lineup already this strong. And Kasabian in KlubC will never happen.
  14. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    Depending on which outskirts of Tilburg you’re staying, you could also consider hiring bicycles. That’s what we did last year and we were in a hotel about 5-6 miles away from the festival, so about a 30min. ride. Did have excellent weather though, so that helped.

    Just to add: price for food/drink tokens is € 2,50 a piece when you buy in advance, € 2,75 when you buy with bank card on-site and € 3 when you buy with cash on-site. (Small) beers and soft drinks are 1 token, food ranges from 2-6 tokens, depending if you want fries or oysters Atmosphere is really chill, people are super friendly and you’ll not have a problem finding a few drinks until about 4AM (outside the festival arena though). But don’t expect 24/7 parties...
