  1. I know people who have flown, driven (via ferry from Hull), gone by train and by coach. Depends on which part of the UK you are coming from and what your budget is. The train to the festival is free once your in Belgium so as long as you get to Brussels, it's all good.
  2. KOL it is then (or possibly a big dance act)
  3. From my experience, the atmosphere was very different. Might have been because of the years that I went (only once to each) but PP was a much younger crowd than RW. Werchter seems to consistently have arguably the best lineup in Europe (certainly in terms of big acts), but a lot of people go to *listen* to the bands rather than go mental. The year that I went to RW, The Mars Volta (I think) had a bit of a strop on stage due to the lack of visible interaction from the crowd in terms of singing/dancing etc.
  4. Given the money that they will have lost last year for the cancellations, I would be surprised. RAR is still a headliner short so I guess that FF are a possibility there.
  5. Not a popular opinion I know, but I really am fed up with FF now. Particularly in the UK, they never seem to have gone away. Can't argue that they're not a top headliner though and a good draw for RW.
  6. Thanks, fingers crossed Graspop doesn't take away too many of the 'rock' bands this year. We're trying to decide between RW and Roskilde.
  7. What time are RW announcements made?
  8. We went a couple of years ago. The following blog post was quite helpful: http://blog.tokyogigguide.com/2013/06/fuji-rock-festival-tips-2013.html. I wouldn't want to get a coach there from Tokyo (I'm not sure if it's possible), it was over an hour on the shinkansen then probably another 45 mins on the festival shuttle bus (note that the festival is no longer anywhere near mount Fuji, it is at Naeba Ski Resort). The closest train station to the festival is Echigo-Yuzawa station, the shuttles run from the station and it's pretty much a fool-proof transfer.
  9. Green Day confirmed for Hurricane/Southside the week before. Pretty much guarantees them for Werchter and Roskilde
  10. Wow, I hadn't realised that Southside was cancelled completely! We were at Hurricane and thought that only getting 1 full day was bad enough. Given what happened at RAR this year as well, it looks like the Germany authorities are being really strict on the festivals at the minute. Still, better safe than sorry. Hopefully they will offer a reasonable refund package (I notice that the official site has been quiet since).
  11. Sadly it's probably the latter, this festival stopped being about big bands a while back now. Somewhere around the time the city started to make the organisers pay to use the land.
