New names!

Another seven names for Rock Werchter 2017. The bill is shaping up. The new names are in the genres of punk rock, hip hop, singer-songwriter, soul, rap and beyond.

Two new names for the festival opening day, Thursday 29 June: Xavier Rudd and Whitney. One for Friday 30 June: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats - back, because last year they were 'oh so good'. Jimmy Eat World and Machine Gun Kelly appear on Saturday 1 July. And finally, Tourist LeMC and G-Eazy are expected on Sunday 2 July. More names to follow soon.

The one day tickets for Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 July are now sold out. Waiting lists have been opened. All other ticket categories are still available. Tickets are on sale from ticketmaster.be.
