Rock Werchter

Things to do, Festivals
The Chemical Brothers, Hurts, Linkin Park (Jun 30), Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Goose (Jul 1), Coldplay, Underworld, Portishead (Jul 2), The Black Eyed Peas, Digitalism, A-Trak (Jul 3) If you can believe it, Rock Werchter begun life as a small blues festival back in '74, but now boasts some of the biggest names in the music industry over its four days of rock debauchery, putting it in a league with Glasto, Oxegen and Roskilde. The dynamic CB duo obviously rate it as they prepare to storm the main stage on Thursday night with their patented outsize party jams. As do the ferociously talented and hugely popular Sheffield quartet AM and international big guns BEP, peddling their flyweight hybrid of rap and R&B on the last night.
