One more try:

Is there a chance we can see Dinosaur Jr. and Paul Heaton? Both will play at Primavera. 

I'd say rather unlikely. No typical RW bookings and a better fit at other Belgian festivals.

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...

Saw sabaton draw a big crowd at sportpaleis yesterday. standing area full, bottom ring full at first sight, top ring closed.

Stubru has also been heavily promoting this band. I think there's a chance we'll see them at RW.

I was there as well, it was a great production and I really enjoyed it but I don't know if this is RW material.  Difficult to explain but to me this is a burlesque act type of thing, not like Parkway Drive last year or others in the past.  The music itself doesn't fit (to my humble opinion) a festival like RW.  I'ld love to have more metal acts on the fest and why not a few Belgians like Amenra, Brutus or Stake ?  If they can play PkP they surely can play RW also...

Do you think there are still options for a Foo Fighters announcement at Werchter?

thanks!

I really don't think Foo Fighters will be touring around Werchter, so no only names I could imagine still coming are Tame Impala, Kings Of Leon, RHCP (new announcement for am festival in Israel in June, but probably not playing in July)

Royal Blood just announced another UK festival date for July, are they still a possibility? they’re at least ik the three last bands of the day on the main stage nowadays...

Looking at Lowlands announcement I think we can maybe rule out a few names for Werchter. Caribou, Glass Animals, Shame and Foals are the ones that sadden me the most but RW can't have everything every year. Sam Fender who also seemed like a big possibility for RW looks less likely now. London Grammar looks out too, so wondering more & more if there is at least one big "female head" for the main stage...

Lana Del Rey here in Portugal at NOS Primavera Sound will we have a surprise Friday?

I'm expecting Lana, Dua, Twigs or Charli, one of those at least.

Why would Lowlands rule anybody out?

They usually share a lot of names with Pukkelpop which happens the same weekend, however this is only a personal thought and might not be true at all.

Just wondering how much (apart from popularity) previous performances influence selecting a band? For example SOAD was amazing last time they played before Linkin Park and were announced first, Kings of Leon are probably popular enough but (and that might be just me, apologies to their fans) they play the same quite dull show every time and even though they are around they have not been booked. Same for Alt-J (they were amazing in all appearances but they got quite lost in the main stage), Editors and even RHCP maybe? It might just be a combination of pure coincidence and my humble judgement of the last performances of these bands at RW though.

I love SOAD i reasonably like KOL but whatever you can say about their live shows  -  at least KOL have released some music since last headlining  - UNLIKE SOAD

I think Kings Of Leon is a certainty for the Friday, last show is on the 28th of June and then there is a gap to 7th of July when they are playing in the UK.

I saw Kings of Leon played Werchter back-to-back in headline spots in 2008/09 and 2013/14 before - they're big enough in Belgium that people previously didn't get bored at such bookings?
