First names Rock Herk 2022


We are halfway through March and the temperatures are rising... Festival season is coming! Are you ready for the oldest alternative music festival in Belgium to announce its first bands of the line-up?! 

For the main stage on Friday 15 July, we will offer big names such as the British band The Vaccines (uk), Noordkaap, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig and Portland. The day ends with M.I.K.E. Push, number one in The Greatest Switch (StuBru) for years. On Saturday 16 July the main stage will host bands such as dEUS, Mogwai (uk), Millionaire and School is Cool. Bluai and Ila, both winners of Studio Brussels’ De Nieuwe Lichting 2022, will complete first names of the line-up.

The second stage, Club, offers a stage full of the ‘harder’ music. We will once more offer big names such as Brutus, Beak> (uk), Godflesh (uk), Ramkot, RHEA and Peuk.

At our most unique stage, Street, Borokov Borokov, Bicurious (uk), John (uk) and Ronker will be standing face to face with the audience.

The dj-acts for the fourth stage, Dansbaar, will follow within a few weeks along with many more names for the other stages! A first name already confirmed there is Faisal.

The 500 Early Birds and the 200 group tickets (4+1) were sold out immediately after the start of ticket sales last week. Regular tickets are still available.

Attention: Rock Herk is sold out way before the start of the festival in recent years. So festival visitors who decide quickly are therefore immediately assured of access to the festival site, and can enjoy an extra advantage thanks to the Early Bird promotion. 

Festival visitors with credits from 2020 and 2021 can redeem them by using the code that was emailed earlier.

Rock Herk will take place on 15 and 16 July 2022 at the Harlaz-Olmenhof sports fields in Herk-de-Stad. Make sure to keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for more news, or subscribe to our newsletter via
