European Festivals Move Dates For A Headliner!

A massive headliner is suspected to be on the scene for the European festival circuit this coming summer. The band/s in question are big enough to have 2 huge European festivals change their regular yearly dates. The festivals being Rock Werchter and Graspop Metal Meeting

The move comes as a surprise to much of the local student population who traditionally end their college year attending the festivals, often celebrating the end of exams. Much like V festival, Reading festival and Leeds festival in the UK


Now in it’s 41st year Belgium’s biggest rock festival Rock Werchter has confirmed that they have moved the previously confirmed dates for 2015 to new dates of Thursday 25th to Sunday 28th June. The same weekend as Glastonbury Festival! 

The festival organisers have revealed the festival has been moved one week forward, to fit the schedule of one of their headliners.

Another Belgium festival, Graspop Metal Meeting has also advanced it’s place in the festival calendar. It will now take place from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st June, one week earlier than in previous years, and out of the weekend now occupied by Werchter. Festival organisers have also hinted this is down to touring schedules saying, “Many foreign groups finish their European tour in mid-June.”

Download Festival takes place a week before Graspop Metal Meeting and have shared a similar line-up in the passed, both being on the heavier side of rock with some metal acts.
