WERCHTER, Belgium (VIP-NEWS) — Belgian festival Rock Werchter has announced that it is shifting its dates forward by one week next year, in order to accommodate the availability of one of its headliners.
The festival, which was founded in the mid-70s and traditionally takes place over the first weekend in July, will run from June 25th-28th in 2015.
In a statement, the festival said: “This means we’re moving the festival one week forward, to fit the schedule of one of the headliners. Negotiations are still ongoing, and we cannot reveal any names just yet”.
While the name of the headliner in question remains under wraps, what isn’t clear is how far into planning for the original dates of 2-5 Jul the event’s organisers were. Nor do we know if the festival will be pushing for any sort of exclusivity over that headliner, having pushed the dates forward.
