This is definitely a Friday you will love! The Cure will headline Friday 28 June at Rock Werchter 2019. The Belgian festival will take place between 27-30 June.

After their first confirmations for Ejekt Festival in Athens and Firenze Rocks in Italy, we now know that the British band will return to the festival grounds of Werchter five years after their last appearance. This is the seventh time that Robert Smith and his group will be playing at Rock Werchter.

The question is now who will join The Cure at the top of the poster? With names like Muse, Ed Sheeran, Bon Jovi and Mumford and Sons touring all over Europe, everything seems possible.

You can see the announcement here:

The Cure

The Cure are an English band from Crawley, West Sussex, and one of the most iconic groups still performing. Since the late 70s, they have delivered a unique sound, often qualified as post-punk or new wave. They have sold roughly 27 million records and received several nominations at the Grammy Awards and Brit Awards. They also won an MTV Video Music Award in 1992 for their anthem ‘Friday I’m In Love’.

Rock Werchter 2019

In 1974, Rock Werchter started as a one-day festival. With almost 90,000 visitors each day and around 80 bands for its four-day lineup, it is now one of the biggest festivals in Europe. Through its 44 years, it has hosted a variety of music genres and artists. From Metallica and Iron Maiden to David Bowie and Paul McCartney, all have performed at the Belgian festival.
