  1. Please don't remind me about FNM, I'm still mourning the loss. Previously when there were headliners I haven't wanted to see there has always been something else to watch, such is the diversity of Werchter. However, this year feels very bland in comparison. If you had a pop act on main, dance act in Klub C and an alternative/heavier band in the Barn I think you'd keep most people happy. I don't think they've achieved that balance this year. On the positive side I've never had time to go and have a look around Lueven much in previous years. So on Saturday I'm going to go have a look, have a few beers and make my way back to watch Grandson on the slope.
  2. Mate I've been going for a few years to Werchter and for 30 odd years to festivals and that Saturday is one of the worst I've seen.
  3. It's a shame they couldn't have amalgamated all these random days into the actual festival and made it stronger. But I guess the need to make money after the past two years and the fact its sold out even with a weak line up shows they know what they're doing.
  4. Yup pretty disappointing line up. I'm sure I'll have a good time when I'm there but previous versions have had a lot more wow factor than this. I think I may just be getting too old for festivals as I feel there are so many bland bands just dialling it in. To be fair there was probably tons of dross when I was younger but I was always too pissed to care. Plus I thought it was bad form to try and slip the QOTSA cancellation in unnoticed.
  5. I'd be surprised if we get anything today. Ken is usually a bit more chatty when there is incoming news... Please be more chatty Ken. 😉
  6. Come on Rock Werchter start giving us some names for God's sake. I want the Friday excitement back.
  7. Wouldn't surprise me to see FNM in the Barn. Pixies and NIN both did. Mike Patton famously doesn't like big festivals and prefers intimate indoor gigs. I'm an enormous FNM fan (they were the first band I ever saw live, back in 1990) so if they were to play in the tent I'd be over the moon.
  8. Just bought my tickets. First time back since 2017. Can't wait.
  9. As one who questioned the refund policy I felt I should write and say well done to Ticketmaster on the refund. I applied for the refund yesterday morning and received notification of my full refund payment from PayPal a couple of hours later. No bother whatsoever. Really slick process.
  10. Yes I appreciate what you're saying Ken. The reality is there are no winners in this situation even multi nationals need money to keep employees and they help support a network of others. Let's just hope there is a festival season next year. We could all do with it.
  11. The thing is we are not talking about a little independent venue or festival here, who I would be willing to help out if I could. We're talking about LiveNation/Ticketmaster an enormous multi national. We're also not talking about a £50 ticket. We are talking of large sums of money (especially when you add food/drinks vouchers) which maybe someone bought last year before COVID and have consequently been made redundant. Those people probably have more need of the money in the short term.
  12. I'm aware a festival line up might change but this is hardly comparable to a headliner dropping out at the last minute. Once I accept the voucher for 2022 then I have given up any option of claiming a refund of my money and since there is no way of knowing the line up in 2022 that's a gamble. RW is a festival that can change genres each year unlike say Download which stays rock oriented at all times. Therefore there is a good chance that I may not like the line up in 2022. RW has had some appalling line ups for my taste but would still be considered great for a lot of people. The grand majority of people will re-book so for those of us who don't want to, (SOAD we're the big draw for me), there should be that option of a refund. Plus I'm already married so I don't think my wife would be too happy if I did it again😉
  13. Have you seen the email regarding tickets. Its outrageous the proof needed to get a refund. I bought a ticket for a festival that is not happening, they have replaced it with a different festival and yet I'm not allowed to claim a refund unless I am getting married or dead. I can't stand RHCP or Gorlliaz. So I don't want to go. Full stop. I love RW but this has left such bad taste in my mouth. I really don't think I would go again in the future because of this.
  14. Yeah God forbid Live Nation have to fork out a bit of cash. Poor sods who have lost their jobs because of this virus now have a useless ticket instead of the cash they desperately need in their pocket.
  15. Quite surprised how low down Faith No More are and always surprised at how popular TOP are. It's a strange world.
  16. Plus it means I don't have to return to Graspop. Thank God.
  17. Are they seriously going to clash the Pixies and Pearl Jam again. FFS.
