    Pukkelpop 2018

    What disturbs me even more than the overall quality of the lineup is the blatant communication error. If you're trying to reel in another last minute subheadliner, don't let the audience know if it ain't a 100% done deal yet. Just keep the timetable to yourself for another week rather than letting people down like this. How many of those communicative mishaps have we already had in the past few years?

    Patti Smith is playing 3 exclusive Brussels shows in August.

    Pukkelpop 2018

    I totally understand your frustration though. Thursday is great to modern Pukkelpop standards, Saturday has a lot of potential to be the same (if some more good midsized names are announced and Justice preferably doesn't clash with Kendrick), but Friday is currently the worst Pukkelpop day ever indeed. Tbh I had never heard of Travis Scott before a few days ago (when brought up in this topic). But we are only halfway the lineup, and in the past few years later announcements still brought great names. Last year's second announcement included Ryan Adams, Nicolas Jaar, Armand Van Helden, The Shins, Sampha, Parquet Courts, 2manydjs, etc. Small nuance: I haven't gone combi since 2013, since then I'm looking at the lineup in a "which day is best" way rather than "how do these 3 days add up".

    Half of the bands he mentioned still have Belgian gigs coming up, including Phoenix and Jungle. And overlap with Werchter usually only gets announced after RW sells out. So there is still a lot of hope for the undercard. Friday still needs a big push, but there are still plenty of options.

    Pukkelpop used to drop their first batch in April, so yes. Made people assume they had to wait for Werchter before announcing. Anyway, the inside guy on Festileaks confirms a big batch for next week.

    Trustworthy guy in the Rock Werchter topic is claiming that they're finishing the lineup tomorrow with a big batch of names. Might just be connected to this year's announcement strategy over in Kiewit.

    I'd say about 25-30, depending on what they have foreseen for The Slope.

    I personally think we should stop hoping for another big act on Friday. Looks like they're aiming on a day stacked with mid-sized crowd favourites that are all more or less aiming at the same target audience, rather than making it top heavy like the Saturday. Judging by the social media reactions to The Killers, London Grammar, Franz Ferdinand, Anderson .Paak, Ben Howard, Snow Patrol, The Kooks, Angus & Julia Stone, ... a lot of people are really looking forward to that day. And in the end The Killers more or less filled Sportpaleis yesterday, which puts them in the same category as i.e. Kings Of Leon, and makes them a bigger headliner than i.e. Lenny Kravitz. Anyway, if Justice is coming I'm expecting them to close KluB C on Sunday or the Barn on Thursday. We definitely already have our tent closers on Friday.

    On the contrary, I think we already have about 8-12 Slope names.

    They only sold about half of the tickets available for their arena show. Same size arena that London Grammar sold out twice in just a few weeks... And true, but Muse was a certified sold out day. The Killers is a totally different story.

    There's no way Kasabian is subbing after that latest gig in Belgium. Especially on a day that could still use some juicy acts.

    Pukkelpop 2018

    This guy on Festileaks who's definitely an insider (drops very concrete hints before every Dour announcement + hinted at RW adding a fourth stage) is now saying we can expect news from Pukkelpop next week. It's on.

    Rock Werchter 2018

    I think we've already had some. If they're preparing a separate announcement, it would've made more sense to reveal the existence of the Slope at the same time.

    Rock Werchter 2018

    Slowdive, Emili Sandé, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sampha, Goldfrapp and Tune-Yards ruled out. They're all in tomorrow's Cactus Festival announcement.

    Odd that there hasn't been a warning. Usually RW tweets when tickets are running low.
