Thousands of people do not have access to the Editors at Rock Werchter

Thousands of people do not have access to the Editors at Rock Werchter

In 2016 the British band Editors were still headlining Rock Werchter, but this year they were programmed at Barn. It turned out to be very small.

During a concert by Ben Howard, who was programmed for the editors in the barn, red crosses irrevocably appeared at the entrance. The tent — which has a capacity of 25,000 — was full, and it would stay that way throughout Liam Gallagher’s concert on the main stage.

Meanwhile, the area around the Barn was full of people, and of course around the big screen where you can still catch a glimpse of the concert. There is also singing, dancing, and clapping, and fists are thrown in the air during choruses.

The Liberators had always been more popular in Belgium than abroad, and apparently the organization and the band now had the idea that closing the big tent was more appropriate. It’s hard to say if the main stage will also be full, but one thing’s for sure: The big new barn is still a bit too small for the Editors’ eyes.
