The country’s oldest alternative music festival, Rock Herk, has already announced numerous artists, but it aims to stand out by offering a diverse range of music. To complete the lineup, the festival has added 12 new names.
On the Main Stage, Hideous, a newly formed band consisting of members from Ramkot and Rhea, will perform. Farrm, a platform for emerging talent in Limburg, has selected Steve and Affaire as the opening act for the same stage.
In the Club, Stake will bring a solid dose of West Flemish post-metal. However, the highlight is the exclusive reunion of Circle, Belgium’s renowned melodic hardcore band, after years of silence. The Mechelen-based Hippotraktor completes the Club’s lineup.
On the Street stage, Kleine Crack & Slagter will join the hip-hop lineup alongside Stikstof and Dikke on Friday. Additionally, the revamped Dansbaar stage offers exciting performances from Scottish DJ producer Ewan McVicar, Belgian talent Asa Moto, local hero Niels Kenis & Ruben VSB, and Eridu.
