If we, Belgians, should be happy with one thing, it’s definatelly our summer music festivals. The line-ups are always very impressing, the atmosphere and the surroundings are so cool. Werchter is just 20 km from home, but Rock Werchter always feels like going on holiday.
I’m just checking out this years’ line-up and it’s looking very promising. I think it going to be better than last year. There are a few bands I really want to see, I tried to give you an impression by linking to some live videos, quality isn’t always good:
- Manu Chao: I saw them in 2001 in Werchter, they were absolutely incredible ! One of the best shows I saw live ever. Even if you don’t like their music, you will find their show great. Only for this band I will pay my ticket. Live videos : 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 (this last song is great)
- Roger Sanchez: Simple, if you want to party he is your man ! Also saw him in 2001 on Werchter. A memorable moment. Live video : 1
- Soulwax Nite versions: We know them all from soulwax and 2 many dj’s , it is always a great show when they’re playing. I saw them in this concept last year on Pukkelpop. Live video : 1 – NY excuse – E-talking
- Vitalic: If you have to much energy, this guy can help you. He always takes his crowd to a higher level and never fails, I experienced this last year at pukkelpop and I love techno. Live video: 1 – Poney Part 1 (very cool clip)
- Mogwai : I’m a fan of these guys. This is my kind of music, I never saw them live so I’m curious how they going to bring their music. Live videos : 1 – 2 – video clips on their official site
- Arctic Monkeys: the next hype … Live video: 1 – 2
I’m astound by the amount of video data available on YouTube, just try searching for your favourite band.
