System of a Down are the second act for Belgium's Rock Werchter which takes place from Thursday 29th June to Sunday 2nd July 2017 and is held in the small village of Werchter in Rotselaar, Belgium.

Rock Werchter organisers sai, "System Of A Down are set to make their Rock Werchter debut on Saturday 1 July 2017. Soad are Californians of Armenian origin- and culturally you very much feel and hear this element rooted in the lyrics and music of the band. At times, their lyrics reference the Armenian genocide of 1915-18, when close to one and a half million Armenians were exterminated by the Ottoman regime. System Of A Down also engage musically with many wider social/political themes. Their music contains eastern elements overlaid with echoes of Dead Kennedys, Slayer, Van Halen and Frank Zappa. This results in an exotic and compelling variant of Alt/Rock/Metal. In April 2015 System Of A Down played at the Forest National in Brussels. The concert sold out in only 7 minutes."

Radiohead were the first to be confirmed.

Tickets to Rock Werchter 2017 go on sale on Saturday 19 November at 10 AM.
