A towering European festival giant
Rock Werchter is a multi-genre music festival held in Belgium, and is one of the longest-running and most widely adored celebrations of music in Europe.
Originating way back in 1975 as a one-day event, Rock Werchter has now expanded into a four day affair to accommodate the ample roster of icons that perform each year, all of which span rock, metal, pop, indie, dance music and more.
A towering giant of European music festivals, Rock Werchter welcomes upwards of 150,000 fans year after year to see some of the world's biggest bands: headlining in 2022 are Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Faith No More and twenty one pilots.
With a "for the people" attitude, an illustrious history and mammoth lineups, Rock Werchter has undoubtedly reached bucket list status.
Rock Werchter is a classic outdoor festival, taking place in an expansive field in the middle of Belgium.
