According to the insiders on Festileaks, we get 2 non-headlining acts today. One of them would be Royal Blood.

He doesnt' mention Royal Blood, but I hope it will be them.

+ hopefully Aphex Twin.

With Aphex Twin it would be worthy even if they would confirm ariana grande martix garrix justin bieber in a row

The other guy mentioned Royal Blood, and he's often in the know about Live Nation stuff.

Royal Blood, excellent. T'other one, I'm probably too old but I've never even heard the name. One for me to check out. 

"Welcoming Rising star Billie...."

She's got one "hit". If we're getting this kind of names at this moment....Doesn't really look promising again 😒

She's pretty talented, songs are good too. Better than your average pop starlet. 

Like a dark Sigrid. Polar opposites.

Someone on the festileaks board said that today's names would please the pukkelpop target audience - . I think that the strategy this year may be to announce artists that will please both camps of teeny boppers and the more shall we say, discerning, older Pukkelpopper s at the same time, hence Twenty One Pilots for the youngsters and Tame Impala for the oldies yesterday and obviously Billie Eilish and Royal Blood for the same today.

Anyway, not a bad start - Saturday is looking great already. I was worried that Eilish was to be given a headline or a sub slot but looks like its not the case, thankfully.

Based on my thinking....Foos and Post Malone for Fridays announcement??

Agree...I only know 2 songs but both of them are good imo. 

4 bookings: 1 must see, 1 very good, 1 interesting, 1 meh....

You and me both...

And having just listened to her 'hit' I think I'll pass thanks.

Still, 1 out of 4 so far (Royal Blood) is not a bad average. Keep that up and I'll still have 55-60 acts to try and see.

From HBVL

HASSELT - 

We already knew that Tame Impala and Twenty One Pilots are coming to Kiewit. Now, Pukkelpop is resolving two arm-length names. The British rockers of Royal Blood will demolish the main stage on Saturday 17 August, a day later it will be the world star in the making Billie Eilish to make her appearance in Kiewit.

For both artists it will be the first time in Kiewit. Especially for the British rock duo Royal Blood, it can be surprising: singer and bassist Mike Kerr and drummer Ben Thatcher have already been active for several years in the renovation of Belgian festival venues. The main stage of Pukkelpop will also be held on Saturday 17 August.

"Royal Blood, that's one wall of sound," says organizer Chokri Mahassine. "I watch the two guests with astonishment. They play for the first time at Pukkelpop and they have a new record by then. It will be pruning hard anyway! "

Mahassine is looking forward to the new name on Sunday, Billie Eilish. Billie who !? Well, the barely 18-year-old American is a world star in the making: thanks to an ever growing legion of fans, an EP full of dreamy electropop that has been in the Billboard Top 200 for over eighteen months, a song on the soundtrack of the Netflix hit ' 13 Reasons Why ', more than 5 billion streams and a completely sold out world tour. "What a voice, what a talent!" Says Chokri. "This 18-year-old girl becomes a very big madame, everyone feels that." Her debut album 'When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?' will be released on Friday 29 March.

 

Looking forward to Royal Blood pruning hard, personally.

Will they bring their own shears?

I'll hedge my bets on that one.

Good to know that Royal Blood will play at Main Stage, i was afraid that they played in a tent as headliner, clashing with Tame Impala

They wouldn't have clashed if they were in the Marquee as they alternate, Club stage yes but they wouldn't have been put in there. The Saturday is going to be a great night.
