    Sorry to hear you had a bad experience SilverLining. I think you probably also had a bit of bad luck because I saw a lot of acts with a great atmosphere and crowd (especially in The Barn: Bonobo, Lorde,...), thought staff on the festival site was always very kind and friendly, almost always was able to get in the tents and I thought the sound quality was excellent with a few exceptions. I have to agree that the crowd in general wasn't the best and yes, RW is expensive but I've never heard of a West European festival that is a lot cheaper. Personally, I didn't really mind the negative points and I also didn't camp in The Hive so I had a great time

    Not really But maybe I just didn't understand it... As you already said: each his own taste

    The tent was really not that packed, maybe 70-80% filled but yeah I was there as well. In the beginning it was a bit of an awkward set imo but after a while it became better and I had a great time

    Some good stuff apparently because I agree with most of it (except Arcade Fire, who didn't give their best performance ever)!

    I had an amazing 4 days with Radiohead, Lorde, Bonobo and Royal Blood as highlights! For those that are interested, you can watch the whole Radiohead concert here: http://vod.rockwerchter.be/?language=en&mediaId=35252 (also a lot of other concert fragments, atmosphere videos and interviews underneath the video)

    The weather was perfect yesterday (we even got sunshine wow) and I saw some great concerts, especially Lorde! Crowd was a little bit meh during Arcade Fire but still enjoyed it. Up to the next day!

    Live Nation just confirmed Rock Werchter will take place 5-8 july so Ed Sheeran will not play at the festival! I don't think we'll hear a lot about RW18 before september - october...

    You can take them into the campsite but unfortunately not on the festival area. They don't even accept a water bottle so I wouldn't even try taking a thermos haha. Also note to everyone: if you want to take deodorant with you in the festival area, only small bottles are allowed! Last year they took away my only bottle on the first day because apparently it was too big...

    Put it on ticketswap and it will be sold in a few seconds

    Buy them in advance, it's cheaper.
  12. Rock Werchter 2017

    + 10-15 min walk

    Just take some bottle caps with you in your pockets so you can keep a bottle and fill it up with the free water! Actually, last year they left the cap on, free water forever!

    Updates on 'The Slope': The new picture confirms it will be in the area with all the picnic tables (with view on the 2 tents). I also read a small article about it in the newspaper. The slope will actually consist of 2 seperate slopes where you can just relax and eat something. They will be connected with some sort of bridge which you can't walk on but it will create some shade underneath. I always thought there wasn't enough shade on the Werchter site so I'm happy with this

    Doesn't matter when you arrive, with your combi ticket you can enter all days
