  1. I really don't think SOAD will be closing the festival. I don't think they'd want a headliner that more than 50% of the people don't enjoy at all (they might be very good but its a niche genre). I don't think Strokes and Tame Impala will be performing together either, it would be perfect to me but not enough to sell out on daytickets (not even close). However, it seems like I can't be right on both. Unless they are going to use their 'reserve option' Kings of Leon. Tame - Pearl Jam Strokes - KoL Fnm - ToP - Kendrick Volbeat - Soad - Foo Fighters Lets see. We're definetly getting more (sub/co)-headliners.
  2. The Strokes. Dream come true. Bkught my BKS ticket straight away and will add a Werchter ticket asap. This line-up is going to be so epic.
  3. I was there last time CB played. I really enjoyed it but the show was very quiet. But so were Skrillex and Disclosure last time they closed the headlinerstage. Last time it was packed was Major Lazer in 2014.
  4. Frank Ocean probably won't come to Werchter but I wish he would. He is an amazing artist. Blonde was the best album of the 2010's in my opinion.
  5. I think I am well capable of reacting to this. I have been working with Festileaks for three years but have stopped for some years now. Festileaks only has very few people working there that even get money most people are volunteers that just love festivals. Its not big business, its still mainly a (prossefional) hobby. Advertising revenues are not that big. So maybe a kind suggestion to stop being so ignorant ?
  6. Haha we don't have to talk about Stefani. No chance she'll be headlining. No chance.
  7. Yes I'm starting to get very positive on Tame Impala. If they are doing festivals and that seems very likely, Rock Werchter is the kind of festival that definetly has them. Kendrick and Tame as headliners would be like the best possible scenario for me, sick and tired of the same big rock bands headlining over and over again and these two are the ones that were so brilliant when I saw them at Glastonbury and Lowlands they will ace it.
  8. Ideally, Tame would perform after Kendrick Lamar. Fits really well together I think although musically being completely different, its attracts the same typemof public. Dream combination for me at least. Seems to small to top the bill on friday but would still be well deserved. Strokes on friday with Tame Impala would be great too. I do think however RHCP/Foo's/KoL will definetly be the friday headliner. If I could pick it would be KoL, its been quiet a while now.
  9. I don't get what you are saying? You mean they won't announce anything special this year anymore? I don't really care if its going to be RHCP/KoL/FF's, all I want is The Strokes haha. Its the only headliner I have never got the chance to see because they never play in Belgium or Netherlands.

    Flops 2019

    Experienced this too. There was so much space to the left of the stage! Could have put your tent there, so much room was left. Great spot, and when the bangers Inhaler, What Went Down and Two Steps, Twice began I was in the mosh within seconds. I think its because the pathway to it gets so busy people stop trying.

    I can't believe it either. For me by far the best show and that says a lot for me since I never expected that beforehand and were even so much better thab absolutely amazing shows by Killers and Foals which at most festivals I'd go to would have been the best. Elephant was just insane. I thought Years & Years were horrific. We just watched it because we hardly saw anything yet on the pyramid but the beats of his songs were so ugly. Just kept watching so I could appreciate all the good stuff I saw even more.

    This stage was insane. If Charlotte de Witte, Kraviz, Bicep etc. were booked here it would have been a lot more busy and I think this stage is better for techno than Pangea (although that one was great too).
  14. 1) Tame Impala 2) The Killers 3) Foals Really hard to not put Two Door Cinema Club or The Cure into the top 3 since at any other festival they would have beem number ones but it seems like bands just give a little extra at Glastonbury. Tame Impala completely blew me away, they will become headliners in the future.
  15. Has it ever been in previous years that people were so certain about a band (like this years Foals) and it turned out to be a different one? If its not Foals I would be so gutted...

    Charging phone

    Thanks for all the help guys. Thinking about, last time I used my portable charger I probably used a cable that doesn't work properly so hopefully the one I have is fine. So much help in so little time haha, I like this comminity. Enjoy your festival guys!

    Charging phone

    So the problem arises when you don't use the cable that comes with the power pack or when you use a different cable than the one you get when buying your phone? Which one should I use?

    Charging phone

    Does anyone have a golden tip for charging your phone at the site? The portable chargers that you can hire were useless to me as it only did 40% and had a massive queu. I do have my own portable charger but I've been to multiple festivals where my charger broke down.
  19. The weather is just amazing! Can't believe I'm travelling to England and I'm going to have 29 degrees! Its going to be sooo pleasant at night. So excited. If Foals will really play the Park Stage my weekend can't go wrong
  20. British don't really like warmth? 23/24 degrees is perfect in my opinion, get to wear your shorts and its warm at night too. I've been to Sziget in Hungary twice and the first year it was between 36-40 degrees all week (festival is 10 days). The dust was everywhere. It was mental.
  21. I'm a bit confused because I got the email on the 28th of may but still haven't got them. Live in The Netherlands but it seems to take too long now.
  22. Netherlands, not like Canada but still far from home

    Campsite??

    Two years ago I went to Glasto for the first time and I camped up the hill behind the John Peel Stage. It had a nice view and was pretty quiet. Now in 2017, I hardly saw anything of Shangri-La or other 'party-area's' because the people I went with turned out to got to bed straight after the headliners. This year I am going with my brother and besides exploring the festivalsite and seeing some great bands; we also want to spent a lot of time at Arcadia, Shangri-La, Glade etc. So we are trying to figure out what the best option is for us camping. We arrive at the coach entrance at about 1 o clock p.m. on wednesday. We don't want to stay at a campsite that is super loud, but really quiet is not necessary either. And is dragging your suitcase across the site worth it?
