Wow, While the rain is pouring down from the sky, it is time for some sunny news from the festival meadows. The Belgian festival Rock Werchter announces its first headliner. On Sunday, July 7, 2024, Dave Grohl will be on stage with his Foo Fighter. But what does this mean for Dutch festivals?
He was once part of the legendary Nirvana,
you know the one from Smells Like Teen Spirit, Dave Grohl has long been making rock’roll hearts tremble with Foo Fighters, the result being several hits such as My Hero and Everlong.
After the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins, the future was somewhat uncertain, but Foo Fighters will be back again and next summer they will storm the stage in Werchter, the festival will then take place from Thursday, July 4 to Sunday, July 7, on Sunday, July 7, they can even close the 2024 edition. Ticket sales start on Friday, December 1 at 10 am.
It is the first time that Foo Fighters have played in our country since the death of their drummer.
Foo Fighters made a strong
comeback earlier this year with their eleventh studio album ‘But Here We Are’ and have also found their way back to the stage. The US tour has just been completed. The band will soon travel to Australia and New Zealand.
They will return to Europe next summer. The tour brings Dave Grohl and co to Rock Werchter for the fourth time (previously in: 1996, 2005, 2017).
Their most recent performance on the Werchter field, which we were there at the time, was one not to be forgotten and is already creating great expectations.
