My prediction/wishlist:
Thursday: Royal Blood - Pearl Jam
Friday: Tame Impala - The Strokes
Saturday: Alt-J/Anderson .Paak - Twenty One Pilots - Kendrick Lamar
Sunday: SOAD - Foo Fighters

I was so underwhelmed by the announcements so far but this sorta speculation, and the evidence that supports it so far has suddenly made me a lot more excited. Even swapping foos with, RHCP as Ken said they were in talks, would make this look so good. Plus Idles and an equally exciting undercard, this could actually be an amazing year.

Given they are coming to Europe in May (London - All Points East) I'm guessing Tame Impala can be all but ruled out for now.

Yeah, this North American tour and the RW sized hole in them and they're doing All Points East shows they're in Europe which means that despite them 'focusing' on arenas as Ken said previously, Werchter could be an exception! Them plus the strokes Cohead and an undercard with Glass Animals (also playing APE) the Friday has the potential to be unreal. I feel like Strokes/Tame have a nice overlap in fans (me included) so they could curate a decent day around similar bands and some nice alternatives in Barn.

Heard something about Gwen Stefani... 
She plays in Swiss on the 11/07. What do you think ? 

Although I actually had very fun and drunk time at P!nk this year, there was so much backlash on the Thursday I don't think Rock Werchter would repeat the same mistakes again; plus I'm sure that day sold really badly, perhaps @Ken19 could confirm

I could only see her doing a Barn Headline against SOAD or Pearl Jam for example but I doubt she'd accept that. Just those three names on one lineup doesn't seem right. Also, is she even a big name outside the US? Kylie played mid day Barn last year if I'm not mistaken, deffo didn't headline it, and I swear that she is a bigger name than Stefani right? I will happily be told I'm wrong over that mind you, I think Kylie has mad popular in the UK with big hits in the past so I might be more biased but can't remember the last time I heard Gwen Stefani on the radio bar Great Escape.

Yes I'm starting to get very positive on Tame Impala. If they are doing festivals and that seems very likely, Rock Werchter is the kind of festival that definetly has them. Kendrick and Tame as headliners would be like the best possible scenario for me, sick and tired of the same big rock bands headlining over and over again and these two are the ones that were so brilliant when I saw them at Glastonbury and Lowlands they will ace it.

Kylie headlined the barn.

Of course Pink wasn't the headliner a lot of the hardcore RW fans wanted, but wasn't the backlash just as much (or maybe even more) about cutting the day in half?

No more new names normally in 2020. We'll have to wait till january. 

Can it be that Friday will remain totally empty until January??

Actually do you think there is any chance that we can avoid Kings of Leon? It might just be me, but I think they're giving the same predictable show every time and they've been there 3 times the previous 9 years. I don't see how they won't be there.

Also, with Pearl Jam in the lineup, would Foo Fighters be realistic? If they were to be announced the same day with SOAD the day will sellout quite quickly.

One more name will be dropped this week if all goes according to latest plan.

Please be Strokes. Please be Strokes. Please be Strokes.

Looks like we have 2 big rock headliners, one hip hop headliner and one new-ish pop headliner. Maybe the last one is more indie. Still dreaming of a Tame Impala - Strokes construction.

Hoping for Strokes and getting Kings Of Leon, imagine that

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...

I think the comment came from someone who apparantly rather want a dull forum without any clues or inside info rather than the odd chance of something not being correct. Without you guys this forum wouldn't be the same, so I hope that the comment from LovelessNL weren't meant in the way it were read..
