FESTIVAL NEWS: The Cure to Headline Rock Werchter

Rock Werchter has unveiled the first name for its 2019 edition.

The Belgian bash will welcome cult heroes The Cure as their first big headliner, with Robert Smith and co. set to take to the main stage on Friday 28 June, the second day of the festival.

The news comes hot on the heels of an announcement that The Cure will play upwards of 25 summer festivals in 2019, most of which in Europe. Their Rock Werchter announcement subsequently puts them right at the top of bookies odds for weekenders across the continent, including Pinkpop and Glastonbury.

Tickets for Rock Werchter, which takes place from 27 to 30 June 2019, will go on sale later this month (26 October). Head here for all the details you need. More names for Rock Werchter are set to be revealed in due course.
