These additions mean that the line-up nears completion, and they come nearly a month after the festival was forced to release a statement addressing the lack of news surrounding a second headliner. In said statement, the organisers confirmed that two consecutive headliners pulled out ahead of time but that a headliner for the opening night will be announced soon.

Final names are expected in due course, with early bird tickets for FortaRock available now. Head here for details. FortaRock takes place on 1 and 2 June at the Goffertpark in Nijmegen.
