Rock Werchter Festival 2013, 6 Days to go

Given that the Glastonbury Festival started two days ago, I’m even more excited for my vacation to come up. After a few days relaxing in Den Haag, I’ll go to the Rock Werchter Festival for the second consecutive year. The lineup is awesome. Here are the acts I’m going to see on thursday:

 

Palma Violets – They will open the second stage called the barn. I already saw them in Oxford this year. The perfect start of a big festival.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – One of my favourite bands of all time. One of my highlights this year. I saw them on their tour in London and Berlin,…great!

Vampire Weekend – A great band. Perfect for a festival. I saw them two years ago at the Hurricane Festival. With their new album they added some nice songs to their setlist.

Biffy Clyro – It will be the first time I see them. The new album is great, I’m really looking foward to it.

Bloc Party – Also the first time for me. This will be the perfect closer for the first day. “Banquet”, “Helicopter”, “Flux”,…wow!

 

Some music to get in the right mood

 


Top 5 songs of last week

With the start of a new week, here are my top 5 songs of last week.

 

1. Fire – Kasabian

 

I watched a part of their set from this years “Hurricane Festival”¬†on tv, and there is nothing other to say then Kasabian being the best live band on this planet!

 

 

2. It’s No Good – Depeche Mode

 

Great lyrics, great sound and Dave Gahan’s voice…

What a great song by one of the most underestimated bands around.

4. Rattlesnake Highway – Palma Violets

 

One of the great newcomers last year. In my opinion the best song from their debut album “180”.

5. Wheels – Foo Fighters

 

I love this song so much and everybody has to love the Foo Fighters! Two years ago I saw this performance live and it was just amazing.
