Rock Werchter 2018 recruits MGMT, Stereophonics and Vince Staples

One of the many festivals where Arctic Monkeys are headlining this summer, Rock Werchter, has unveiled the latest acts adding to the already-colossal bill including Stereophonics and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Taking place on July 5-8, Rock Werchter is gearing up to smash last year’s bill out of the park.  The 2017 edition of the Belgium festival featured Radiohead and Arcade Fire, as well as Lorde.  However, this year the European celebration of music has already enlisted Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds as well as Queens Of The Stoneage.

Joining these mammoth names are MGMT (remember ‘Electric Feel’?), Vince Staples and everyone’s favourite indie rockers, The Kooks.

Jack Johnson and Angus & Julia Stone, as well as Fever RayRoméo Elvis X Le Motel and Rone, have all been revealed to be heading to the festival in July too.

Tickets for Rock Werchter 2018 are on sale now.  Grab them while they are still hot!
