Regularly selling out, the lineup is a fantastic mix of popular international artists, national crowd-pleasers and local Belgian acts, all rounded off by a spectacular firework show at the end.
Rock Werchter also welcomes a variety of electronic and hip hop acts to the mix, welcoming any sounds that compliment the rock and roll ethos.
