Surprised to see we're still expecting/ hoping for another big name for the Friday.

Is LG not headlining that night alongside The Strokes then?

that would be a very poor day in my opinion. LG is not big at all here and the stroker are exclusive but not a band that can carry a day by itself.

For one time... Nice quality names still to come for RW. A lot of them. A lot of great female acts too. This batch of names was logic. People who are liking the more commercial names are happy no

Are you also an insider in the World Health Organization?

It is not that difficult, Jazebel is closer to the fire.  that was my information and I shared it, i hope that they will release another name this week. it is not a battle...

Chili's would be a good fit for the Friday, but whether they're adding any more dates now is doubtful :(

I really can't see a band now topping the Strokes who probably command a HL's fee, who are already playing after someone who's headlining one of the biggest festivals in Europe. Both probably don't come cheap so to add someone as big as the Chili's wouldn't really make financial sense. Ken alluded to Post Malone and I'd say someone of his popularity would be more likely to play before the Strokes or LG.

It's way more likely to be someone on the level of The National or Tame Impala rather than RHCP. Still a big name but not an all-star. 

Tame Impala has been ruled out by Jazebel. The only possibilities that haven't been ruled out yet are KOL, The National and Posty for the moment. It's very strange to see Posty being added to BST on the 2nd of July, while the festival normally goes from Friday to Sunday. That's why I think he's the most likely one to be our missing co-headliner on Friday. It would also be a logic addition as they have the undercard and that Saturday to attract younger people to buy a combi ticket, but they miss an interesting headliner for that target group on one of the other days.

Just to back up your theory - Open'er is still mising a Saturday (co-)headliner.

Anyone heard anything here?

I found them terribly boring in 2018, but with a new album, they will always be a possibility I suppose. But no dates yet in Europe, so I wouldn't count too much on them being there.

Thanks. Yeah, just checked their tour guide and they're in the States only at the mo, though would be time for Europe between their last two US shows. 

Surprised you found them boring, but each to their own :)

Sorry, but what or who is Jazebel? A RW represenative?

Regardless, Tame Impala seems possible as co-headliner with The Strokes. They're quite big nowadays (headlined Coachella a year ago as a replacement to JT/Kanye) but I don't imagine Kevin is actually too expensive as a co-head for RW. He was a headliner alongside twenty-one pilots in some smaller festivals last year (Lowlands/PKP, for example), I'd assume both are at a similliar price-level: Also, I don't imagine Kendrick counts as a smaller or cheaper headliner than Strokes (though I don't really know that, just assuming) so as long as 21P-Kendrick is happening I don't see why Tame-Strokes is unlikely. Moreover, Tames new album is out in 2 days and they have a month-long gap in their US leg, starting mid-June, just in time for some European festivals. Or RW, at least.

So overall Kevin seems quite likely, but whoever Jazebel is, if he/she/it is a reliable source I guess all my speculations really doesn't matter.

Also, I think Post is a shit act. His performance 2 years ago was rubbish. And unlike many others, I really don't see how he fits with Fridays lineup.

Posts legit info here along with Ken19. They said "Doesn't look like one of those will be there." in response to someone asking about Foals, Vampire Weekend, Idles, Editors and Tame Impala. 

If you're wondering about their validity they posted the first letter of each band in the Placebo batch a day before the official reveal. 

However, at the same time, they also said "RATM simply don't seem to be touring Europe in 2020" so there's obviously plenty in this industry that's a very well-kept secret

Hmm, alright. So it seems they do have reliable information about names INCLUDED in the announcements, which is awesome. But as you mentioned, it's quite different than information about other acts who aren't included in the nearest name-drop / won't be at RW at all.

I never actually saw Jazebel saying that Tame Impala was out of RW, but I have seen Ken saying that he likes Tame Impala very much.


In my opinion what makes the most sense to accompany The Strokes is really Tame Impala or Kol . If it is a Kaleo I am disappointed because I have seen it on the Second Stage of NOS Alive.

No one is saying Kaleo would be a coheadliner though. If they return, it's in the afternoon.

As for Tame Impala: Ken said at the end of 2019 that there were rumours about them preferring to play arena shows rather than festival headline shows. Jazebel said "it looks like they won't be there" when someone posted a wishlist recently, including Tame Impala. It's looking less and less likely that they're still coming to Europe in July. I'd say they are out if not announced by Friday (album release date).

What is actually the plan for Vampire Weekend? I know Jazebel ruled them out, but they only have announced this Benicassim show in europe for the summer and nothing else......why?

The same goes for The Libertines......I think there is just Benicassim and Pohoda as their only european shows.

They are playing in Switzerland and Paris too. Quite strange that RW missed them twice with their new album. They could really draw a big crowd at Werchter, I think.

Long negotiations last year, first they didn't want to come early to Europe, then they did for Glastonbury and finally they wanted to stay in Glastonbury (2 shows?). Frustrating. They did all the other important festivals already in the Werchter periode last year. That is why they are not available right now i guess. On the other hand, they will be back some time in the near future, that's for sure. 

Organising Werchter in the same weekend as Glastonbury, like last year, always has some + and - .

Last year I was pleased to see Vampire Weekend at NOS Alive and is very curious to see them and to be honest I found a normal concert nothing too much, a simple concert, I expected more from them.

The National I like them a lot but they have come to Portugal 17 times already and this year they come to Rock in Rio again, so I want bands like Tame Impala and KoL that I haven't seen and don't come to Portugal very often.
