Foo Fighters join the line-up

Announcing the best news of the week by far! Foo Fighters – the premiere rock band of the 21st century – play Rock Werchter on Sunday 2 July 2017. What a festival closing act!

We now have announced four amazing names for the upcoming festival, which takes place in the Festivalpark in Werchter (Belgium) from 29 June to 2 July 2017. Radiohead plays on Friday 30 June, Linkin Park and System of A Down on Saturday 1 July and Foo Fighters on Sunday 2 July. More names to follow soon. Tickets for Rock Werchter 2017 go on sale next Saturday at 10 AM via ticketmaster.be and proximusgoformusic.be.

In the 20+ years since the 1995 release of Foo Fighters' self-titled debut, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear have grown into a world class headliner dominating stadiums, arenas and festivals across the globe. The band's massive catalogue of gold and platinum albums has won 11 Grammys, four Brit Awards, sold 25+ million records, and is the backbone of marathon shows powered by singalong anthems "Everlong," "Monkey Wrench", "My Hero", "Learn To Fly", "All My Life", "Best Of You", "The Pretender", "Walk" "Something From Nothing" and more.  In 2015 Foo Fighters were forced to cancel their appearance at Rock Werchter, but they’ve made good on their promise to return and will bring Rock Werchter 2017 to a close on Sunday 2 July.
