Linkin Park are the third 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 said, "Another amazing band has been announced for Rock Werchter 2017: Linkin Park! A band we’re always mad keen to see. Linkin Park top the wish list at any festival, and online streaming services place the American six-piece among their most-frequently-listened-to artists. The band even has two tracks in Spotify’s Top 10 timeless songs. Yes, with over a hundred million streams between them, ‘In The End’ (# 6) and ‘Numb’ (# 3) sit with the likes of ‘Billie Jean’ and ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Having started as an alternative metal band in the mid-nineties, Linkin Park amassed bigger audiences by incorporating elements of hip hop and electronic music. Two front men give the band a distinct dynamic: Chester Bennington’s intense vocals bouncing off Mike Shinoda’s stellar raps. Linkin Park will play Rock Werchter on Saturday 1 July. This will be the band's second time at Werchter, having first appeared in 2011. Linkin Park is currently recording its 7th studio album.."

Radiohead and System Of A Down were the first acts to be confirmed.

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