    I have a very strong feeling The Script will play The Barn and that we don't have the sub for QOTSA. Just a big hunch. In fact you can quote me on that one later on.
  2. Rock Werchter 2018

    It's waay to early for that. ;-) Normally we get around 80 names (last year we got 78?). But with the Slope, we can expect another 10-20 names on top of that. So we're just halfway.
  3. Rock Werchter 2018

    Blackwave is nice. And Arsenal and Triggerfinger are reliable acts.
  4. Rock Werchter 2018

    Chemical Brothers are playing Dour, so they're ruled out.

    I'd rather have The XX. Saw Florence 4 times in the last 7 years at RW. She's great, but the last one felt tiresome.

    Praying for Childish Gambino.

    That's not the point. James Blake subbed Radiohead, Alt-J subbed Foo Fighters. Those are massive acts who can sell out their day on their own. An equally big co-headliner isn't necessary for them. But The Killers will most definitely need that. The Killers don't sell too much tickets. They (probably) waited so long to long to announce them because of that gig in Sportpaleis which even now didn't sell out. In fact, The Killers are less profitable than Gorillaz, Pearl Jam, Nick Cave, Arctic Monkeys in Belgium. So that's why I think there's stil something missing. Edit: But the Killers will most definitely help shifting combi tickets. As a whole, the set of QOTSA + Gorillaz + The Killers + Jack White + Pearl Jam + Nick Cave + Arctic Monkeys (+ Nine Inch Nails + London Grammar + Snow Patrol) is one of the strongest set of headlining acts they've had. IMO ;-)

    You forgot Cave. ;-) Both QOTSA/Gorillaz and Nick Cave/AM are co-headlining (probably getting an equally long time slot). And I'm counting Jack White as a headliner too, just because he has that status on every other festival. So I reckon we'll still get the 'other Friday headliner'. Thursday: Queens Of The Stone Age / Gorillaz Friday: The Killers / XXX Saturday: Jack White / Pearl Jam Sunday: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Arctic Monkeys

    Why not? I even think he's a good contender for a nice KlubC spot (no main stage name ofc). Still on the top of my wishlist are the following acts: Childish Gambino, Solange, Bryan Ferry, The Breeders, a Gallagher, Tame Impala, Sampha, Father John Misty, St Vincent, Interpol, Jungle. And maybe The XX as Friday co-headliner. (And for the dreamers: Thom Yorke or Smashing Pumpkins.) If we get 3-4 of those, I'll be VERY glad. Hell, I'm very glad with this lineup as well. :-)

    I heard Foo Fighters are still finishing their overly long Monkey Wrench jam. Oh god.
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    Not at all. As I said, Radiohead was my highlight of the weekend. And I rarely witnessed a crowd so into it as at their Werchter gig. (I was standing quite up front, mind) In Rainbows is probably my favorite album by anyone ever so I was very pleased with the 6 IR songs and 7(!) OK Computer songs we got.
  12. Rock Werchter 2018

    I was talking about the 2 headliners. ;-) And while SOAD was excellent, I dare to say Radiohead was even better.
  13. Rock Werchter 2018

    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.
  14. Rock Werchter 2018

    Your trolling has become quite obvious. Try better. This lineup consists of almost every big act touring that weekend. Only Mad Cool does better in that manner. Thursday, Saturday and sunday (!) are already stacked. I do have to say friday still feels slightly light, but the headliners are clearly missing there. Once it is finished, this lineup (literally) will be huge.

    Disappointing list tbh. But you can't win them all!
