“This is not a tent. The Temple of Love. I have never experienced this before.” He also realized that it was a bit historical somewhere. Stijn Meuris and Noordkaap were introduced to The Barn today at the Werchter Classic at 2:30pm and filled in much later. 20,000 likes. 20,000 vocal cords and 40,000 excited hands.

Eleven songs in the selected list. Eleven hits. Flemish heritage approx. 23 years after the last visit to Werchter, the words of Noordkaap are still on everyone’s mind. The barn laughed, clapped and howled. Folk festival.
The list of the group contributed everything to this. ‘Panamarenko’ as the second track and final shot, hold tight: ‘Satelliet Suzy’, ‘Poor Joe’, ‘Wat Is Kunst’, ‘Druk in Leuven’, ‘Would a little bit of war’ and ‘I love you’. How hard is it to earn a place as a Belgian band?
He himself called the barn the temple of love, and the tent breathed too. Full set long with a boiling point of “I love you”. A song in stark contrast to the group – and a great song by Lars van Bambost on guitar – but the song shouldn’t be missing. “Now we’re going to drink a lot of our balls backstage and get up again in Nick Cave,” Meuris said after the warm bath that was the entire show.
And also: “You were a great audience.” They were themselves. Fabulous.
