NEW NAMES ADDED TO THE PUKKELPOP LINE UP
On Saturday your legs will be kept very busy, dancing to a) the tunes of Fake Blood during their very first show in Belgium, b) the impressive ‘beats ‘n’ cubes’ of Matthew Dear and his live band and c) the sparkling sound of Azari & III. Highbloo and the Partyharders Squad will make the Boiler Room tremble and shake once again. On the same day the indie kids will appreciate the presence of The Kills, Twin Shadow, Crystal Fighters, Fucked Up, Creep and The Maine. And Das Pop will reveal the true meaning of the word pop.
On the Main Stage on Friday we are Within Temptation with their metal torn straight from the heart. In the Dance Hall you will be able to witness the very first live show on Belgian soil by Sub Focus and enjoy the music of the hottest British MC of the moment, Tinie Tempah. Our Eurosong representatives had better come and listen to Beardyman and find out what beat boxes really are. Cults, Cage The Elephant, Esben And The Witch, Suuns, The Avett Brothers, Alex Winston and Morning Parade will also compete for your attention. Zornik will represent our own region. And we are delighted that School Is Cool has decided that Pukkelpop is the perfect place to present their first album.
A few names have also been added to the opening day line-up. On Thursday you will see the rising dubstep star Katy B, hip hopper Wiz Khalifa, the electro funkateers of Chromeo and the dance fury Yelle in the Dance Hall. Panic! At The Disco, The Wombats, The Hickey Underworld (with new work!), Friendly Fires and Battles will make sure your heart keeps beating to the Pukkelpop rhythm. And do not forget to explore the sound of the following new bands: The Sound Of Arrows, Veara, Wolf Gang, Kurt Vile & The Violators, The Black Pacific and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart! Don’t say we haven’t told you!
The Offspring move to Saturday 20th instead of Friday 19th. They will play on the Main Stage between our national indie pride dEUS and the exclusive party noise of Duck Sauce, the DJ duo Armand Van Helden and A-Trak.
