Since 1977, the Rock Werchter festival occurs each year at Werchter, not far from Leuven. The event has constantly grown in size since its debuts, passing from a one- to a four-day event. It now welcomes around 80 000 festival-goers each day, which means a total of about 200 000 over the weekend.
Werchter is the largest Belgian festival, both in terms of capacity and the quality of bands who play there. From the best guitar acts to the most solid beats. From the warm sounds of the melodica to a funky bass line. From indie pop to punk rock. It is all possible at Rock Werchter.

About Werchter Werchter
Rock Werchter 2013 will be held from Thursday 4 July to Sunday 7 July in Werchter (Belgium). For four whole days the very best can be seen and heard on three stages in the Festivalpark. Established artists, today's and yesterday's heroes and the big sensations take to the Main Stage as usual. The Pyramid Marquee hosts all flavours of electronic dance on Thursday and Friday. And then it's the upcoming talent, the more intimate performances and dance beats into the small hours on Saturday and Sunday. In the Barn, it will be nice to see old friends, but discover tomorrow's heroes.
