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

Depeche Mode have announced their European tour dates for 2013, and these dates will include festival appearances at Belgium's Rock Werchter, plus Sweden's Peace & Love Festival, Spain's BBK Festival, and Portugal's Optimus Alive.

Depeche Mode
The Brit electro music band, formed in 1977 are set to announce a one off date at London's O2 Arena on Tuesday 28th May, and also reveal the following live festival dates:

06-27 Borlange, Sweden - Peace & Love Festival
07-07 Werchter, Belgium – Rock Werchter Festival
07-11 Bilbao, Spain – BBK Festival
07-13 Lisbon, Portugal – Optimus Alive Festival

The lack of announced UK festival dates may point to a festival appearance in the UK by the trio of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher, after the tour finishes.

Belgium's biggest rock festival with an 85,000 capacity 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.

Green Day headlining the opening night, Friday headliners, Saturday headliners and Rammstein, and Editors are expected to play after Sunday headliners Depeche Mode. 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.
