Friday 4 o’ clock comes early today… Another great name just has been added to the Rock Werchter 2017 bill. The British trio alt-J play the Festival Park on Sunday 2 July.
These guys are musical wizards. Type alt and J on an Apple keyboard and you get Δ, the Greek letter delta. It's the symbol used by scientists to mark a change in value. We can be forgiven for saying that the alt-J trio have done something similar with the history of pop. They've created their own universe from the highlights of the last 60 years. And they've been as expert at this as they've been inventive. Alt-J reach their tenth anniversary in 2017.
Rock Werchter looks good for 2017. Kings of Leon and Arcade Fire play on Thursday 29 June, Radiohead on Friday 30 June, Blink-182, Linkin Park and System Of A Down on Saturday 1 July. Alt-J play on Sunday 2 July, as do Foo Fighters. More names to follow soon. Rock Werchter 2017 takes place at the Festival Park in Werchter, from 29 June to 2 July.
