My guess right now (or maybe wishful thinking but anyway):

RHCP - Tame Impala

Lana del Rey - Bon Iver

The Strokes - 21 Pilots

Pearl Jam (maybe + SOAD/Dua Lipa)

2× big and established rock headliners, 1× indie-rock, 2× 2010's indie-acts (Tame Impala, Bon Iver), 2× pop/mainstream (Lana, 21 P)

I would love that line-up but I think the first 2 days would not sell out, especially Lana-Bon Iver is too weak for Werchter. Also, I don't expect LDR, she will probably only be in Europe early June

Normally is Lana not available for Werchter. And if she is, for the barn, not main stage.

Focus for Bon Iver is Pukkelpop. But they want him. They want him very bad.

Sweet Jesus, RHCP co-headlined a day with Editors ??!

wow.

Editors even played after RHCP.

The Peppers aren't exactly huge in Belgium. Didn't even manage to sell out the Sportpaleis (cap: 20K+). You need another big act like them to co-headline. Which is good news.

Lana in the barn would be incredible. Norman fucking Rockwell is by far my favourite record of the year.

Let's assume PJ are going to announce on December 6 (first Friday of December, their usual pattern). Can we expect RW will announce some other acts before that day or the plan is to start with PJ (since as you said they want to start with their most headliners)?

Can you shed some light on this Ken? 

Should we expect any names before PJ are ready to announce supposedly in early December?

@Ken19 Is there any chance to have Blur this year?

In 2016 there were no preconditions of their summer shows (like new album or tour), but you said they had been booked

Does this mean that Organizers are close to Damon and band and are able to have them as a kind of an exclusive option?

Except for Deftones, not one name that I will really miss from this list. Remarkable that Gojira isn't in this list as they tour together with Korn. Could it be possible that they play RW this year instead of Graspop? 

Also strange that either Volbeat or System of a Down are still not announced. I expected at least one of them to be announced for Graspop by now.

I always forget the fact Editors are enormous in Belgium & The Netherlands. Over here, they usually play theatres, although they do have an arena run in Feb/March.

Wishful thinking i guess. But with Blur you never know. In 2015 they decided very late to do some festivals that summer.

Did Pukkelpop try to book Blur that summer as festileaks claimed? Or was it just fake información that they invented?

No, maybe they’ve got an offer to book blur but it was never an option.

I know the Damon Albarn camp more than the Rock Werchter camp and it's my understanding that we are more likely to get the Gorillaz next year than Blur. Gorillaz are still more active than Blur (they are still in the studio although I've no idea if that is to plan another album or they are just making songs at this stage), and it's actually Dave Rowntree's connections to Labour that make it more difficult to get him back in the band (it's been a busy time for him if you hadn't noticed)

So realistically we are looking at something like this:

Post Malone - SOAD

RCHP - The Strokes 

Tame Impala - Twenty One Pilots - Dua Lipa

Pearl Jam - Royal Blood

With Thom Yorke, MCR also very likely. 

Not terrible, but too many recent repeats in my opinion, if that is the case.

Pearl Jam is really putting me off RW, it's just lazy. RHCP were shit last time they played aswell. I might be showing my age but I usually leave just before the main acts start, I prefer the day time drinking and strolling around the festival more than anything else. I know I'm contradicting myself, just the main acts don't do it for me. the Killers and Arctic Monkeys were pants in 2018 aswell. I think a good main act (on paper) pushes you to get a ticket but when the time comes, for me they are the biggest disapointment.

Why are people so convinced that the strokes will play? From my understanding they have never played in Belgium and certainly not Werchter. So there standing in Belgium is not very high.
