Werchter, Rotselaar, Belgium, Belgium
200 Euros - SOLD OUT
Daily capacity: 85,000

Blur will be headlining the Main Stage of Belgium's Rock Werchter on the Friday of the festival which takes place next year from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th July.

The London four-piece are now operating on a sporadic basis, and this will be another rare appearance by the band that features drummer Dave Rowntree, guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James, and front-man Damon Albarn. In 2012, Blur wrote 2 new songs ('The Puritan' and 'Under The Westway' ahead of their sold out show in London's Hyde Park which were debuted on Twitter via a live video stream from a London rooftop.

Belgium's biggest rock festival for 140,000 people offers four days of varied international well known acts across three main stages in a well organised commercial festival setting in the small village of Werchter in Rotselaar, Belgium.

Saturday headliners Rammstein are the only other act confirmed. For the line-up details as available please click here.

For four whole days the very best can be seen and heard on three stages in the Festivalpark. Established artists, today's and yesterday's heroes and the big sensations take to the Main Stage as usual. The Pyramid Marquee hosts all flavours of electronic dance on Thursday and Friday. And then it's the upcoming talent, the more intimate performances and dance beats into the small hours on Saturday and Sunday. In the Barn, it will be nice to see old friends, but discover tomorrow's heroes.

Ticket prices have not yet been announced and go on sale on Friday 2nd November 2012, and eFestivals will have links to buy them then.
