New for Rock Werchter 2020: Faith No More. The Californian quintet will appear in the Festivalpark on Saturday 4 July. The five-piece have always gone against the flow. Freedom is their motto, and the result is always quality.

Ten acts have already been confirmed for Rock Werchter 2020. Pearl Jam, Pixies and Wilco are booked to play on Thursday 2 July. Kendrick Lamar, Twenty One Pilots, Faith No More and The Streets are on Saturday 4 July, while System of A Down, Thom Yorke Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes and Yungblud play on Sunday 5 July.

Few groups confound expectations like Faith No More . With humour and a strong belief in their own ability, Faith No More are not only one of a kind, they are historically important. The band was the first to blend metal with funk and hip-hop in the 1980s. They recorded hits like ‘We Care A Lot’ and ‘Epic’ and five superb albums. The confirmed contrarians also hit big with ‘Easy’, a cover of a soul classic by the Commodores. By the late ‘90s it was all over. Ten years later, however, they picked up where they left off. First in concert, and then they went back into the studio. Album number six, ’Sol Invictus’ (2015) quickly hit top 10s all over the world. "Five years, four colonoscopies, two root canals and a handful of prostate exams tell us that it's time to carpe diem our asses back to Europe asap,” Faith No More said in a press release earlier this month. And so it shall be.
