About Kings of Leon:
”There is no festival we’ve played more,” said singer Caleb Followill to the Werchter crowd last year. The pleasure is ours, Caleb. No name has graced the bill as often in such a short space of time: in 2014 it will be the sixth time in eight years. This mutual respect tells a Werchter fairytale: young band makes headliner status through repeat visits. The first time around, in 2007, Kings of Leon were honoured by a visit from Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam). Two years later they topped the bill. By then “Sex On Fire” and “Use Somebody” had brought them world fame and they were heaping up the gold records. The album “Come Around Sundown” (2010) was overshadowed by internal stresses, but that was only a glitch. “Mechanical Bull” (2013) sees them back in good form. More roots than arena rock. Good stuff.

About Rock Werchter:
Rock Werchter 2014 will be taking place from Thursday 3 July to Sunday 6 July. Over four days on the Festival grounds in Werchter (Belgium), you will be able to see music’s finest on three stages: Main Stage, KluB C and The Barn. At Rock Werchter we firmly believe in bringing together a mix of different genres, and that’s proved very popular. Rock Werchter is an international hit and has been awarded multiple prizes. Last year’s four-day festival attracted some 140,000 (individual) festival-goers from far and wide and was completely sold out in advance.
