Arcade Fire join Radiohead and Foo Fighters at Belgium’s Rock Werchter 2017

Win Butler and co announce another European festival for next summer

Arcade Fire will share a bill with both Radiohead and Foo Fighters at a major European festival next summer.

The Canadian group were recently revealed to headline Isle Of Wight 2017 as a UK festival exclusive, and now they’re set for another massive gig in mainland Europe.

Having already been announced for Croatia’s INMusic Festival, Arcade Fire have now been confirmed to headline Belgium’s Rock Werchter in 2017.

Rock Werchter takes place in Werchter in Rotselaar, Belgium, running next year from June 29 to July 2. Tickets are on sale now.

Arcade Fire will headline the opening day of the festival (Thursday, June 29). Radiohead, System Of A Down, Linkin Park and Foo Fighters will also headline.

Both Radiohead and Arcade Fire will also play Best Kept Secret Festival in the Netherlands next year.

Meanwhile, frontman Win Butler also recently attacked Donald Trump as a ‘fucking nightmare’ – as well as slamming British Petroleum during a huge headline set in New Orleans.

Arcade Fire have told fans that their hotly-anticipated fifth album and the follow-up to ‘Reflektor’ is likely to be released in Spring 2017, after debuting new material at a secret show in the US last month.
