We all know the bad news by now: no Rock Herk 2020. We are planning something fun on our social media on Friday 17 & Saturday 18 July though. But let’s not dwell on that, because mostly we are looking forward to Rock Herk 2021! Today we can proudly announce that most of the already announced line-up will remain the same for Rock Herk 2021 on Friday 16 & Saturday 17 July 2021!

Which acts will transfer to 2021!?

On the Main Stage Goose will remain our headliner with their live electronic project Goose Nonstop, along with Noordkaap playing an exclusive reunion concert, Black Box Revelation, The Subs, Equal Idiots and Newmoon. Also The Radar Station and Crooked Steps (both winners of “De Nieuwe Lichting”, a contest of Studio Brussel) will be performing in 2021.

For the second stage, the Club, we will keep working together in 2021 with concert promoter MCLX, based in Antwerp. Which means Canadian trio Danko Jones and Raketkanon will stay on the line-up. Raketkanon will have stopped playing for almost two years by then, but they could not say no to a last chance of rocking our stage. Also returning to the Club in 2021 are Godflesh and Peuk. Goe Vur In Den Otto will close the Club as usual with a great party. 

At our third stage, Street, we will welcome back Raveyards and Hoffman. On our fourth stage, Dansbaar, our house dj’s Mr. Critical and Up To Eleven cannot be missed, together with Susobrino and Bjeor. To conclude the line-up Willy Organ will return to Herk-de-Stad in 2021 to help keep alive Dutch 80’s pop music.

Unfortunately there are two acts who cannot join us in 2021: Author&Punisher and Beraadgeslagen. But do not panic! Rock Herk has find two worthy replacements: Belgian metalrock heroes Brutus and British psychedelic rock sensation Beak.

We will add around 20 new acts on top of this to the line-up of Rock Herk 2021!

There is more good news! Despite of the fact that 2020 will be a difficult year for the organisation, the ticket prices will remain the same for 2021. A combi ticket can be bought for €56! Tickets for Rock Herk 2021 are available starting today via Beware! Previous years Rock Herk was sold out before the start of the festival. Festival visitors who buy their ticket right now will be sure straight away to have access to the festival site.

Already bought a ticket for Rock Herk 2020? Before the end of the week, you will receive an e-mail concerning the practical issues. As announced earlier, tickets can be exchanged towards Rock Herk 2021, or if that doesn’t fit towards 2022. Next to that, you will have the option to get your purchased tickets reimbursed fully, with the exception of booking and service fees. The organisation does ask to use the voucher option as much as possible. A lot of expenses have already been made for the edition of 2020, so this way you can help us financially recover.

Rock Herk 2021 will take place on 16 & 17 July 2021 on the sports grounds Harlaz-Olmenhof in Herk-de-Stad. Keep an eye on our website, Facebook & Instagram page for more news about Rock Herk or subscribe to our newsletters via
