Just bought mine and my partner's tickets, very excited, first oveseas festival. Can't believe it's taken us so long when the lineups are usually so much better. PJ / Metallica / RHCP / FNM alone pretty much covers the cost of the ticket already in my eyes, let alone everyone else that's coming.

Questions for people who've been before:
Do we need wellies? Assume not since it's not England
What's the situation with taking our own food/drink? My guess is we can take what we like into the camping area but they will search people for alcohol entering the arena area?
How do the tokens shake out roughly? We bought 60 in advance with the intention to mostly live on our own food/drink. Is it roughly 2 tokens per pint?

Cheers!

The last two years (the festival ran) it has been incredibly hot, all the stages have flooring (including the main stage unless you're really far back) and if I recall correctly if it does rain they tend to put lots of sand down, so you may not need wellies. Take what you want into camping as long as its not glass but security going into arena is pretty strict, you put everything on you in a box and go through metal detectors, booze in empty sun cream bottle always works mind you (plus they have free sun cream in there anyway). It's one token for one 250ml beer (300ml if you go to the Jupiler bar thing near the North West Walls earlier in the day), they only have Jupiler and some sort of low % wine I think at the main bars. Food ranges from 2-4 tokens mostly and is generally pretty good but in-between the arena and the camping theres lots of food vans that take euros and while they're expensive you get much bigger portions than in the arena for the same money.

Perfect, thanks for this!

Bit soon isn't it? Considering Pearl Jam is also a 2018 name and Gorillaz, also 2018, are coming back as well. 

Hoping for something more unique for once. 

Gorillaz isn’t confirmed is it? I’d love The Strokes most on the line up but I don’t see them playing on the Metallica day, possibly Sunday

Wouldn’t mind QOTSA or Gorillaz coming back next year, it’ll be 4 year by that point since I’ve seen either of them. They would also be a big selling point for a couple of people in my group who are thinking of coming back to Werchter next year who haven’t been for a good few years.

I’m biggest thing I’m hoping now that they’ve got The Strokes before RHCP. That would be the cherry on top of a fairly stacked cake and looking at other line ups around the time/past Werchter line ups I think it’s something they could feasibly pull off

Hello,

I'm new here (hello everybody) and I wanted to know about :
- the maybe fifth day in Werchter (because many festivals announce extra days!)
- is the project of a 2nd Werchter Classic still under consideration or even more than that 😉 (Bruce Springsteen or ?)

Questions for @Ken19 ;-)

Thanks

The Weeknd will be doing his own tour (stadiums).

Peter Gabriel would be great for the Barn.

Deftones and Black Label Society are playing Graspop (exclusively). Deadmau5 might be more of a Pukkelpop or Tomorrowland thing. While I miss having the dance act headliners after the rock headliners at Rock Werchter, there's probably not enough people that agree with that sentiment. 

RHCP are on stadium tour, and at RW..
The weeknd (or Dua Lipa ) could be perfect name for the "pop act" no ?

I hope more names soon, I'm from Tahiti and all my friends in France buy tickets for other fest... I don't want to go at RW aloooone !
