FESTIVAL NEWS: Seven New Belgian Names for Rock Werchter

Rock Werchter has announced seven brand new names for its 2018 edition this afternoon, all of whom are from Belgium.

The Belgian festival places a big emphasis on local bands each year, with a select few from each edition often going on to sell out large venues across the country. This year, the first batch of Belgian names concerns both established and up-and-coming acts.

They are: Triggerfinger, Arsenal, Angèle, Equal Idiots, Roméo Elvis x Le Motel, Todiefor and blackwave. They join the previously announced likes of Gorillaz, Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Arctic Monkeys and Pearl Jam, all of whom will top the bill.
