Double dose of rock. Faith No More and Royal Blood are coming to Werchter on Thursday

Ten days ago, Dave Grohl broke his leg during a show in Sweden, resulting in Foo Fighters cancelling this year’s set at Rock Werchter 2015. It was an eventful week at the Rock Werchter office. Phone calls were made and e-mails were sent out trying to find a great alternative. (On this subject, also read "Headliner cancels. Now What?")


Faith No More and Royal Blood graciously saved the day by marking their calendar on Thursday June 25th, which means a double dose of rock is added to the bill. Faith No More was in popular demand by the festival audience. The festival organisation is pleased to have added them to the Rock Werchter 2015 line-up in extremis. Royal Blood is coming twice this year. Last year, they performed in The Barn in the early afternoon. It was a most impressive performance, which resulted in their big breakthrough. Last February, Royal Blood received the BRIT Award for best British Band which was presented to them by Jimmy Page.

Plenty of reasons to grant them not one but two spots on the Rock Werchter Main Stage, both on Thursday and on Saturday! The new running order is now available on
