No, no Biffy, not this year, not the next year, not 2021... they have no fanbase in Belgium. Remember Pukkelpop 2016. Maybe, they release an album that changes everything in the future, but i doubt it.

I would expect they have a bigger fanbase than GVF (at least among the international RW crowd), but then I'll just have to give up on wishing for artists on the bigger stages, and hope that The Slope will be as awesome as last year.. :)

Any chance for Editors?

@Ken19 any idea on why they missed out on The Chemical Brothers? They seem to have always played at Werchter in the past when they had a new album out. I assume the bond between the festival and the act is quite strong.

I was actually quite certain they would be the dance act on the Thursday again, after P!nk. But it seems that won't be the case. It's a shame because they are a fantastic live act and their new stuff is really good. :(

They can't keep on giving us these mediocre names, can they?

There's always hope for improvement.

Unfortunately on my experience announcements never get better and with word we've had cancellations it don't look great. I still would realistically want vampire weekend and foals but knowing my luck we won't get any

The last two times they played RW the field was really empty... that does not help. They are not really cheap. It would help if they want to play a tent stage.

The only name I don't care about is Foals.

Vampire Weekend and dEUS are the only ones that could save the day for me now. Please Werchter, this is literally hurting. Surprise us. In a good way for once.

Any chance Bob Dylan will play on the Sunday? He'd have to play three nights in a row, but he does that at least on two other occasion on his tour.... 

What about Neil Young??

I think that the travel from Norway to BE is tougher than domestic travel in Spain or Germany. So I would not get your hopes up! 

(would love for any of the two to play though)

Logistically it doesn't really make sense. At this point I think we have all headliners and subs, maybe another Bastille sized act on Thursday but no space anymore for acts like Bob Dylan or Neil Young. And Young just announced a Belgium show 2 weeks after the festival.

Taking a look at the schedule, I think a lot is done by bus (so you can take your materials as well). Only long distances are probably done by plane, and therefore they calculate one day in between. Ofcourse it's just an estimation on the dates that we see, and I hope that I'm wrong 😉

My hopes have gone further and further down with who else to expect , I'm just starting to look at the few positives of who we have.

Thing that gets me is Greta Van fleet are probably good but the cheek of werchter replacing probably suitable acts with greet van fleet a cheap option I imagine is an insult
