Pukkelpop 2020

That's too bad, hope the line up won't be as bad as 2018, but I'm starting to fear.

Pukkelpop is what you make it really - as you live in Belgium I'm sure I don't need to highlight how it's not RW and all about the, 'big' names. 2018? Saw loads of amazing sets that year, including possibly one of my favourite ever from Justice. Guy J b2b Patrice Baumel was also probably the best DJ set I've seen there too so all in all was a pretty decent year for me. Haven't even mentioned Bicep, Confidence Man, RBCF, Todd Terje, King Gizz, Vitalic and loads of other stuff that was pretty ace!

Gonna throw Kraftwerk 3D into the, 'possible but unlikely mix for the Marquee headline spot' thing. How mad would that be? Think we're looking at next Tuesday for the first names but that's just a guess.

I see room for a metal day with slipknot, limp bizkit, fever 333, I prevail closeby

Slipknot do look the most likely now with Eminem not releasing any dates yet and RATM charging a gazillion dollars to play.

All free on the Friday. Stick Pendulum either as main stage or Dance Hall closers and I think the day would sell out.

I would definitely watch Slipknot and Pendulum, but a day with them and Limp Bizkit would really feel like a nostalgia day.

Rather have Macklemore than that godawful Limp Bizkit though.

Neirher of those please.

No way Pkp is going to book such an alternative headliner (Slipknot). The most alternative they're going these days are acts such as Bon Iver and Tame Impala. 

If I have to make a prediction of the headliners it would be something like:

Macklemore - Dua Lipa - Die Antwoord

Foals - The Weeknd

London Grammar - Bon Iver

Would RATM really be that expensive considering they are already announced for some smaller festivals?

It must be really expensive. Lolla Berlin and Reading line-up are so weak this year so a bit part or their booking budget is invested on RATM.

Its almost imposible that PKP will book them. Werchter 2021 seems their logical comeback to Belgium after their hiatus.

More Dour names, lots of artists who played PKP last year

In other news, Crumb have been announced for Paredes De Coura and Koffee is ruled out due to playing a reggae festival in Amsterdam (Sean Paul is worryingly there as well) 

Migos have been announced for Block fest in Finland the same weekend but I really doubt they'd be booked again.

Getting so impatient now! 😫

Think we had to wait until April for an announcement one year. Pretty confident we'll have a good line up again this year. Booking my flights on Tuesday.

Kinda hoping it’s soon because sziget increase ticket prices beginning of March!

There will be some overlap, if you're deciding between the two then you need to choose between a line up over 7 days and one over 3. If I was a young man again then I'd probably choose Sziget, however now being a man of a certain age and having other commitments, Pukkelpop is perfect for me.

Did sziget last year and don’t have the time this summer to commit to 7 days so was either thinking 3 days at sziget or 3 days at Pukkelpop... would like to wait for the PKP line up before booking anything though. :)

Sorry to double post but is there a chance it's Eminem for this and that's why they are holding back, similar to sziget? I really hope not as I have no interest whatsoever in his live show just thought that could be a reason why it's taking them so long to release the first names?

'almost time' and 'it's not been an easy task this year' according to one of the insiders at festileaks. I'm guessing that means at the top end of the line up. 

Rita Ora named for Zurich Openair btw. Urrgh.
