With there being lots of rock on the lineup already, I'm hoping for some indie/soul/hip hop/pop to be added to the lineup.

Little Simz, Lorde, Stormzy, Big Thief, Wilco, Kae Tempest, St Vincent,... 

Such a shame about Brockhampton. I know they played 2019 but it would have been great to see them back.

Would love to see an Earl Sweatshirt, Denzel Curry, Blu, Freddy Gibbs or JPEGMafia spot.

After doing a fair amount of overtime in recent weeks, I've found myself with a bit of cash burning a hole in my pocket. I quite fancy coming to RW from the UK but don't know much re: infrastructure etc.

Thinking of getting Eurostar to Brussels. Are there then busses or trains to Werchter? 

Wife and I aren't spring chickens (late 40s). Are we going to stand out like a sore thumb?

Re: above statement, are there quieter areas to camp that aren't too rowdy?

What are the vouchers on sale? Do you need to buy them or can you use cash/card?

What are prices like for food / drink? Burger and pint cost examples?

Anything else we need to know? TIA. 

Concerning the age you don't need to worry. I've seen all ages between 10 - 70 represented there. I'm 42 myself.

I'm still saying Biffy Clyro are a shout to replace Faith No More but Liam Gallagher is more likely. 

Biffy Clyro can come open the main if they want. 3rd highest spot on the main would make absolutely zero sense in Belgium and specifically on Rock Werchter.

Yeah 3rd is too high really, take that part back. But wherever the slot, they're in Stockholm for Lolla on July 3rd and happy to be 7th on that poster.

Their set in 2019 was really great. Shame they're calling it quits.

I dont understand when you buy a an insurrance if this is only for getting  your money back or also for keeping your ticket to next year?

I really hope you are wrong.

Here you go:

This is where we are staying with my mates for a few years now. 15' walking from the entrance of RW. A bit costly (well...if you haven't booked anything yet and you are two persons you might end up paying even more for a hotel during that period) but the quality of the amenities and the close proximity to the festival site compensates. 

Oh and no worries about the age (you'll have plenty of ppl around older than you 🙂 ). Diversity is one of the main pros of RW. compared to other festivals.

You have to factor in that GVF are from the US and have a market of many more millions of people. In Europe there are more diverse kinds of Rock and Indie music that aren't as popular in other parts of the world. Refer to what is popular in Spain, France, Italy etc. 

The stats are 'real' figures but RW bands are chosen to fit a certain demographic regardless of stats.

Sure, you're all right guys. But this doesn't change the fact that in many Countries outside UK Biffy Clyro are not considered a big act (I attended at their show at NOS Alive a few years ago and they had an afternoon slot before Robert Plant, Pixies and Chemical Brothers). Greta Van Fleet instead are considered a mainstream rock act since their first album here in Italy. I don't know anywhere else 'cause I'm totally not interested in them but that's it 😁

I try to limit my alcohol consumption to evenings, which helps massively. Plus, I limit that consumption to whatever I feel like drinking, so never overboard.

We live in Birmingham and are going by Big Green Coach. Picking us up in the city centre on wednesday, then driving us onto the ferry and all the way into Rock Werchter come the early hours of sunday. Website says they do pick ups at "Birmingham, Dover, London (Victoria Coach Station) and Manchester. "

haha yeah

I've always coached to glastonbury too, and imo I think it's the best way to go about it. First time at Werchter though.

No Anderson Paak for RW as well. Playing Les Ardentes. 

* crying * 

He was too late, all the possible spots were gone. Not the first, not the last. Shame. Maybe an extra date on Boutique? He would fit really well.

@Ken19 do we know if we're going to have names Friday? Today there were new names in England at the Parklife Festival and Rolling Loud Portugal also announced the full line-up today.
