Festival promoter Herman Schueremans said: “Getting that final confirmation is always a bit special. After months of hard work the puzzle is complete.
“We are especially proud of this line-up. Fantastic headliners, great newcomers, very diverse and very current. We have 94 names for the 2018 Rock Werchter line-up… the most we have ever had on a Rock Werchter bill.
“I’m pretty sure The Slope, the extra stage we introduced this year, has played a part in this.”
