Fans can anticipate additional headliner and lineup announcements in the weeks leading up to the event, building on the festival’s reputation for showcasing a diverse array of musical talent.
In 2023, Rock Werchter featured stellar performances from renowned acts such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, and Muse, alongside other noteworthy artists like Liam Gallagher, Iggy Pop, and The 1975.
During Queens Of The Stone Age’s electrifying set, the band added a touch of spectacle by reuniting with a familiar face – ‘Spider-Man.’ This impromptu reunion marked a continuation of a memorable encounter from the 2018 edition when frontman Josh Homme invited a fan dressed as the web-slinger to join them onstage.
Dua Lipa, who recently announced her return with the release of ‘Houdini’ on November 10, will bring her chart-topping hits to the Rock Werchter stage. The new track, described in a four-star review by NME, maintains Lipa’s signature Studio 54-ready sound, offering a nostalgic journey back to the era of disco.
