Bruce is doubtful now since he's doing Pinkpop in Holland.

Edit: No Bruce Springsteen, Pinkpop is only festival in benelux.

who's the likely headliners then? RHCP defiantly, metallica looks an obvious choice. Maybe Gaga might be one.
Looking at past lineups and RW doesn't seem too ashamed at having a headliner 2 or 3 years too late.

Werchter usually have 2 headliners per night, can see foos/metallica/Rhianna amongst the headliners.

With the likes of bjork, editors, Florence, strokes also playing but who knows.

Werchter have band through the day which headline uk festivals. Example of this is kasabian/mcr playing in the afternoon.

But it's a lovely well run festival with not a hint of trouble.

Yep just stalls inside the arena, outside the arena there's bars going all the way up and down(cold draughts)!

decision now is whether to fly or drive. was thinking of getting the overnight ferry from hull to zebrugge. only 2 and a half hours to hull and then only an hour 30 the other side.

You should get the euro star or flight to Brussels, as it's free public transport once your in Belgium.

Florence being announced this early on doesn't bode well. If they're going to go for a female pop act, go for lady gaga or rihanna (who's around at that time as it is).

Let's hope florence and her warbling shitstream arn't one of the big eight.

Florence is extremely popular.
Sold out the AB in minutes. That's why they announce her early.

She'll be playing three or four places beneath the headliner.

During the day is alright, my problem is knowing how many high calibre acts are touring this year and thus, having ridiculous expectations for werchter to produce a fantastic lineup from it.

With the absence of Glastonbury am thinking of doing my first RW next year. One of our friends mentioned a 'Rock village' with 'wooden huts' you can stay in - would save us lugging tents etc via planes (live in the Channel Islands). Does anyone know about this 'village' and how you get tickets for it. Also whats the atmosphere like, and what is there to do apart from watch the bands ?

Cheers

been to the last 2 werchters and never heard of the 'rock villiage', you sure its werchter?

atmposphere is lovely and laid back, no trouble and very well organised. saying that you might miss the madness of glasto as its not like that at all.

theres not much to do apart from the bands, one of the reason im strongly thinking of roskilde as is knows of the european glasto. saying that the bands dont finish until 2am rather than 11ish in the uk.

you also get 4 days of music at festivals at festivals like roskilde(well 7)/werchter so works out better value for your ticket money.

Normally it's 800 euros for a 4 person hut. But I think it's breakfast and use of the jaccuzi's included :)

I do really like the atmoshpere, went every year since 2009 and it's every year getting better en better in my opinion.
There's nothing to do apart from the bands, but the latest band play until 1 or 2am and afterwards we just sit at the camping, having a little party and go to band a few hours later.

I did both Glastonbury and Werchter in 2011, and I think RW may be a good alternative for Glasto. It are two very different festivals but they're both very nice.
