Rock Werchter 2012 is offering more music, more party. The last round of 16 acts – some solid women, today’s and tomorrow’s top-notch talent and a serving of musical history – is once again impressive. Added to the line-up are: REGINA SPEKTOR, CYPRESS HILL, AGNES OBEL, LANA DEL REY, SIMPLE MINDS, KNIFE PARTY, MICHAEL KIWANUKA, AZARI & III, BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB, M WARD, ALABAMA SHAKES, SCHOOL IS COOL, PERFUME GENIUS, EASTERN CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS, ISBELLS and METRIC.
The line-up for Rock Werchter 2012 is now complete with 81 names. More artists than ever will play the festival, thanks to the new, third stage, The Barn. The Barn is a big top tent, a modern version of the classic span tent. It can accommodate a crowd of 10,000 festival-goers and complies with all international safety regulations. The tent’s shape guarantees excellent acoustics. It will be pitched right next to the Pyramid Marquee with which it has an alternating line-up.
