A truly fantastic four day festival in Belgium which I’ll be checking out again for sure. If you’re after a great European festival and not sure which to visit then give this a go, for years it has had a great line up. I’ll happily buy a ticket to this without knowing the line up first.
Rock Werchter 2010 was hot Hot HOT! Did I mention it was hot? It was rumoured to have hit 41°C on the Friday! With the weather pretty wet back in the UK it was good to be away watching fine music and drinking cold beers with friends old and new in the sun.
Thursday night was headlined by Faithless who did their normal set which got the crowd going. Personally I felt Muse should have been the head liners as they stole the show. Friday it was Green Day’s turn, who as always put on a fantastic show. Due to the heat today we ended up watching The Netherlands v Brazil at a cafe in Leuven sipping on the locally brewed Stella all day, totally different to the chemical shit that is produced here in the UK.
Rammstein rolled into town the following night with 22 Tonnes of pyrotechnics in tow. Pearl Jam closed the festival on the Sunday, a band who shamefully I don’t know that well but were very good.
Other highlights over the four days included Skunk Anansie and Porcupine Tree, both of whom had mid afternoon slots when the heat was at it’s peak.
