One of Europe’s biggest music festivals, Rock Werchter, has recently announced another 20 acts in addition to the seven acts that had already been released. The headlining acts for the main stage currently include Blur, Green Day, Volbeat, Kings of Leon, Rammstein , The Editors and Depeche Mode. An eclectic mix if there ever was one. Equally as varied though are the 20 other band that were announced yesterday who will play the festival’s three stages. The press release reads as follows:
New on Thursday 4 July are Airbourne and Netsky (live) on the Main Stage, Jessie Ware in the Marquee and Bloc Party and Sigur Rós in The Barn. Volbeat and Green Day had already been announced for the Main Stage that day. On Friday 5 July Two Door Cinema Club, The Script and Phoenix will be joining the earlier announced Kings of Leon and Blur on the Main Stage. C2C will build a party in the Marquee. And with Richard Hawley the tone is set immediately in The Barn. For Saturday 6 July so far only one name had been announced: Rammstein. Graveyard can now be added to the Main Stage, Disclosure to the Marquee and Django Django to The Barn. Depeche Mode and Editors will finish Rock Werchter 2013 in style on Sunday 7 July. But before we come to that, A Day To Remember,Band of Horses and Thirty Seconds to Mars will perform on the Main Stage. Passenger and Asaf Avidan have already been confirmed for the Marquee and Alt-J and Of Monsters and Men for The Barn.
An interesting selection of bands, ranging from the heavier bands like A Day to Remember to the dance acts like C2C and Disclosure to the indie and alternative music of Django Django, Alt-J and Phoenix. The press release also stated that more names will be released over the coming weeks. Screen Invasion will be at the festival which runs from the 4th to the 8th of July, so if you’re going say hi!
