Wednesday 15 August is a public holiday and that calls for a celebration! What started many years ago as a modest Boiler Party for the campers has meanwhile developed into a full-fledged festival night. The following artists have been added to the Pukkelpop line-up.
Angèle, sister of Roméo Elvis but most popular because of her own wonderful talent, Bearsøme, rugged DJ hunk from Leopoldsburg and The Boilerboys with their 15th appearance at Pukkelpop, a crystal wedding anniversary. Coely, the grand lady of rap, is giving a hugely anticipated gig this year. Urban hero Daniël Busser, dark groove metal from Diablo Blvd and De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig, always luek. Singing out of tune on demand is something for Ghent-based crowd pleasers dirk. Fleddy Melculy is synonymous with fun metal from Brabant and Gewelt is double teaming with fellow Limburg sons Konna. Nadiem Shah has written the book on how to throw a party. Novastar are showcasing their new record and Skyve are bringing the eternally ravishing Eva De Roo. Also added to the Wednesday line-up: Timmerman, the man with the pink cap, TLP, king of urban, riveting film pop by Warhaus and, finally, Brussels rap with an attitude by Zwangere Guy.
Every year some Pukkelpoppers are caught off guard by the notice sold out. Especially those festival-goers who plan to pitch their tents across the road from the festival arena would do well to act on their intentions asap.
Thursday or combi ticket holders can access the festival arena on Wednesday 15 August as of 6 pm. There are no separate Wednesday tickets.
