Hmm any other big names still coming or are the announcements going to be like last ones?

Friday definitely needs another main headliner and Barn headliner.

Strokes are excellent, but for a festival the size of RW you need an equally big co-head. Was always thinking that would be Tame Impala, but now I don't know it anymore.

I am wondering if there will be another big co-head, The Strokes are really expensive. Only option is KoL I think or there is a new name coming into the field. We also thought SOAD wouldn't close the festival but they are....

if they don't sell out a day out of 4 it's not that bad.

Agree. And the guys said to lower your expectations multiple times. That's why i'm not having much hope for Massive Attack either for example. 

My only remaining hope is they actually add Gojira and/or maybe other smaller heavy bands to spice-up the first couple of days. 

And if KoL are the only 'big' option left just promote someone else to a co-head (and not Liam... ) . Get Royal Blood. Though I'm assuming they would prefer a female artist, if any.

I think we also got a bit spoiled by insider(s) saying it would be the best lineup mostly in comparison with Mad Cool... Which I don't agree with upon now (But that is my music preference maybe). 

Looking at the 2018 line up there should still be about 40 names to go, so not giving up yet. Really was wishing for some of those 'probably just forget about it' names though.

Looking at the line up now in my opinion it looks so bland overall, lots of repeat bookings and not many inspired choices except strokes , and Kendrick Lamar  

I love Werchter, it is a great festival but they do LOVE a repeat act don't they!

Let's not forget that last year Greta Van Fleet (and Rosalia more importantly) weren't added until Feb 27th, and then March 1st was Robyn, Richard Ashcroft etc. to close out the list. 2018 The Killers were added on Feb 14th and acts like Franz Ferdinand and Post Malone came ever later.

We've still got a ways (and a big act) to go ;)

I think both The Strokes and SOAD are in the same price category. But, while I’m not a fan of that main stage, they got 2 acts that could fill the Sportpaleis playing before them. And a very strong Barn lineup. 
 

I think Strokes really need a similar treatment if they want to sell out that day. Liam doesn’t shift many tickets, he can’t even fill Vorst Nationaal. Something for the indie crowd in between Strokes and Liam could help a lot. And a decent Barn headliner.

A few acts I'd like to see in that announcement, though none I'd really use to sell the festival to my friends. Which is to be expected with a lot of these announcements, I guess.

It's a shame if (as indicated) none of Vampire Weekend, Foals, Tame Impala or IDLES will be turning up as I'd be actively delighted with any of them. Hopefully we'll get someone of similar stature (from my taste POV, that is).

Regarding Liam Gallagher, his post-Oasis stature has grown a lot in recent years so I wouldn't have been surprised to see him in that slot. Where is he featuring in other festival lineups?

Regardless, I'm wary of us waiting for a big-ish name that won't come and will lower expectations accordingly.

What do you think about names like Foster the people (coming back recently and going in August to some european festivals) or The regrettes (going to play in March at belgium). Also, we spoke about Cage the elephant and the small possibility because of the busy days around with shows in others festivals.

On the other side, I know Catfish and the bottlemen man are headlining lot of festivals, but what about a co-headline?, would be amazing!

I'm running away from NOS Alive this year for RW because I think NOS Alive besides lowering quality is repeating ... my country's own festivals are repeating a lot!

You will know it by the end of this month normally... exciting, isn’t it?

the line up is overall a lot stronger than last year, but rw misses one very big name... happier with this line up though! Again, if every thing goes as planned, some nice announcements are coming your way.
