A legendary festival history
Since its humble beginnings, hundreds of rock legends have blessed the crowds at this festival with their incredible sounds. To name just a handful, The Cure, David Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Elvis Costello & the Attractions, and Pink Floyd have all been part of past line-ups. In recent years, pop and alternative rock sensations like Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Imagine Dragons have even joined in on the fun. Artists from other genres participate too, with performers in niches ranging from heavy metal to electronic dance music. The festival was originally founded in 1974 as two events, which were known collectively as "Torhout-Werchter". In 1999, the festival organizers did away with Torhout, and the singular event has been set in Werchter ever since. It also started out as a one-day event, but over the decades has exploded in size and popularity to become one of Belgium’s largest and more celebrated music festivals. In 2003, the event was extended to be a four-day festival, and the camping element was born. Most of the festival campsites are located within one kilometre of the main grounds, and they typically open prior to the start of the festival so that campers can get settled and ready for the music. Hungry? Don’t worry – there are a huge variety of culinary delights and refreshments on site. And of course, vegetarian and gluten-free options are available too!
