  1. @Ken19, 'ken' you please give us something. Last weeks were boring as hell.. An update about 2020-acts that will come back this year, the date we can expect something from RW (this friday, next week?) maybe. If that's too much (which I can understand) maybe a story from past editions? I totally get you're not going to say "band X is coming", but can you give us something?
  2. Sad, but yet very understandable. Thanks for the update Ken!
  3. Ken is the plan to announce some names before Christmas still on the table or have things changed?
  4. Why would the new act have to be your kind of 'new stuff'? RW2021 is completely stripped from metal too without names like SOAD, FNM, Volbeat, what about that audience? Because 'Pearl Jam already is for metal fans' equals to 'Gorillaz is a good replacement for Kendrick' to me. And 'empathy for more than what you like yourself'... how many times have I seen 'I don't care, as long as The Strokes will be there', 'WE WANT THE STROKES' here? What kind of 'empathy' is that? All fine, I get the frustration about The Strokes and Kendrick not being there (I really want to see both too) but i
  5. I understand and I agree with you on that but you can't deny that with whatsoever day programme, Metallica will sell better than The Strokes. Metallica doesn't need 'another headliner'. From the organization's point of view, it wouldn't be strange to put Metallica there instead of The Strokes.
  6. I agree regardings to The Strokes, but they just didn't sell well, and Metallica will.. Rock Werchter is a business. I just don't see the problem if it happens only this year, due to the pandemic. Just a guarantee tickets will sell good. Why can't they have PJ, RHCP, Metallica this year and next year a mix of rocknames together with acts like Kendrick, Billie Eilish, Tame Impala andso? Is it because you are so pissed about this year's line up, that you eventually won't consider go to RW2022? The option to save your credit for RW2022 won't be there for no reason. And repeating e
  7. It's not like young people only want to see acts like Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, Billie Elish etc. There are many young festival goers who want to see Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam most likely because they were too young to see them earlier. Or just because they just prefer Pearl Jam over Kendrick Lamar, yes they exist... I do think Rock Werchter wants to attract a younger audience, but this year, a year completely different than others, they will seek for guarantee ticket-sellers. The Strokes and Kendrick Lamar didn't, so it's completely understandable that RW will boo
  8. At Werchter or specifically the festival Rock Werchter? Sounds to me like a day with Metallica at Werchter Classic/Werchter Boutique. Would explain the thing with the vouchers wich can be used for both the festival and the one-day-festivals.
  9. Thanks man, I'm happy for you, knowing it's more than likely Thom Yorke will be playing the Barn while RHCP play the main stage.
  10. RHCP with Frusciante is gonna be awesome. So many hits, so much energy and great musicians. Got a feeling they have a good relationship with a younger audience too. Can't go wrong with them. Tame Impala afterwards would be even more amazing.
  11. Haha And I forgot about TWOD, really hoping for both. Thursday Tame Impala (late night) - Pearl Jam - Pixies Friday The Strokes - The War On Drugs - Liam Gallagher Saturday Gorillaz - Twenty on Pilots - Faith No More Sunday RHCP - Royal Blood - Placebo This would be buzzing! Although maybe a little too much..
  12. My guess is: Thursday PJ - Pixies - The Lumineers Friday Tame Impala - The Strokes - Liam Saturday Gorillaz - Twenty on Pilots - Faith No More Sunday RHCP - Royal Blood - Placebo
  13. "Some covers of your former band".. The biggest British post-Beatles band yeah. Not "some covers", but Live forever, Champagne Supernova, Wonderwall a.k.a. some of the best songs from Britain ever, according to the people. And his solo albums were #1's in the UK too. Even a live-album. The man is a legend.
  14. @Ken19 Can we expect names tomorrow? At least the schedule should be known right? Acts like The Strokes, Placebo (or RHCP in case they will play there ofcourse) are already announced by some festivals, Rock Werchter should be able to confirm those to boost the ticket sale. Or am I thinking too easy this way?
  15. Kendrick is an unique headliner. Who would be a suited replacement for Kendrick? In my opinion there are only two possibilities: Eminem and The Weeknd (Tyler, Stormzy, ASAP Rocky etc. are nowhere compared to Kendrick, maybe Post Malone, but still too meager as far as I'm concerned). Maybe he will play RW in 2022, in that case fans can change their ticket. Anyway, stating "There must be a replacement appealing to people who bought tickets" is easy, but if it isn't possible, it is not possible. Replacing a rock headliner I think is a lot easier, because there are a lot of suitable replacements
