Pearl Jam To Headline Rock Werchter

ANTWERP, Belgium (VIP-NEWS) — It may have been a long courtship, but the love they share with festival friends at Werchter is more intense than ever. It wasn’t until 2006 that Pearl Jam played on Belgian soil for the first time, at a sold out Sportpaleis in Antwerp. And a year later the American band finally played Rock Werchter. Next year they will take to the festival’s main stage for the fourth time.

Pearl Jam headline on Saturday 5 July. And they’ll be giving a full show. Pearl Jam are planning just 11 shows in Europe next summer. They’ll play at only 2 festivals – Open’er in Poland and Rock Werchter. It will be a fine reunion.

Now confirmed for Rock Werchter 2014, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Jack Johnson, Major Lazer, Metallica, Pixies, Placebo, Skrillex, The Black Keys and Triggerfinger.

Rock Werchter 2014 will be taking place from Thursday 3 July to Sunday 6 July. Over four days on the Festival grounds in Werchter (Belgium).

In March of this year Rock Werchter won the prestigious ILMC Arthur Award for ‘Best Festival’ for the 5th time.
