    Rock Werchter 2019

    Matt Bellamy (Muse) on Studio Brussel: 'We are trying to book concerts for next summer, so it probably would be summer 2019 that we come back to Belgium.'

    Rock Werchter 2018

    Overall I'm quite satisfied with this schedule, except for the friday. It's almost offensive that Franz Ferdinand and Wolf Alice are playing on the 3rd and 4th stage when acts as The Kooks and Russ (haven't even seen him mentioned here) are playing mainstage.

    Way too small for that in Belgium, played 4th down in 2014.

    The Prodigy and Justice are playing a festival in the Netherlands that takes place from 6-8 July. It's only a 1,5 hour ride to Werchter from there.

    TEN is the name of Peal Jams debut album and also the name of their official fan club so it's either an obvious hint or the biggest troll ever by a festival organization.

    Rock Werchter 2018

    Well, that escalated quickly. I just wanted to show that there are different ways to look at headline positions as I mentioned popularity, genre, relevance, live reputation, artistic value and many others. I want to apologize for all the downvoters and lighthouse in particular. I never wanted to 'rank' acts, I thought I was very careful by only including potential Werchter headliners and not acts like Miley Cyrus or Dua Lipa as lighthouse mentioned. I just wanted to bring a different view. Again, I'm sorry if this makes it look like just a popularity contest.

    I see a lot of discussion here about which acts could be qualified as (sub)headliners at Rock Werchter. Of course this is determined by various factors such as genre, relevance, live reputation, artistic value, but also of course how popular an act is. I decided to take a look at the popularity of the most mentioned acts in this thread by looking at the number of monthly listeners on Spotify. Here is the list: The Killers 10,9m Metallica 9,3m Arctic Monkeys 8,5m Gorillaz 7,1m Florence & The Machine 6,2m Pearl Jam 5,6m The xx 4,8m Snow Patrol 4,8m Thirty Seconds To Mars 4,3m Queens Of The Stone Age 4m The National 2,8m Kasabian 2,5m Volbeat 2,2m Massive Attack 1,8m LCD Soundsystem 1,8m The Prodigy 1,5m Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 1,3m Björk 1,1m To start, there are some comments/shortcomings about this kind of measurement. The most important one is that these are worldwide statistics which are not represent for the Werchter public. The second one is that some of the numbers are inflated due to the fact that some artists have released an album this year (The Killers, Gorillaz) which attracts more curious listeners. Still, I think it’s interesting to look at these numbers because there are some trends visible. Arctic Monkeys and Pearl Jam both haven’t released a studio album since 2013, still they are among the most popular acts in this list. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds is at the bottom of this list while Rock Werchter presented them as one of the top acts. This correspondents with the opinions in this thread which makes them more appreciated for their artistic value and live reputation.

    Were the other coordinates city specific or just state? Bruce and Bon Jovi are both from other cities within the state New Jersey. Biggest band from Jersey City is My Chemical Romance but I doubt they will let a festival announce their comeback.

    Depeche Mode did NOS Alive last year so they (and MC too?) will have another one this year.

    100,000sqm, 80,000-capacity? I went to this years edition which was also too crowded. There was practically no space to sit or relax anywhere and there was a constant stream of people to and from the food stands and toilets which were all centralised near the entrance/exit.

    Does anyone know what 'Performance INFACT' is? It's on the time schedule everyday for 30 mins before the headliner.
