Organiser Erik de Ridder succeeded in setting up an even stronger program for next year’s edition, that will take place from Thursday 15th of August to Sunday 18th of August in Amougies (45km from Gent and 2hrs drive from Breda). Next year, 78 acts will perform on 3 stages (main stage SYNTH SCENE, WAVE CAVE and THE OLIVIER DAOUT DOME) in 4 days.



A selection of confirmed acts: NEW MODEL ARMY, VNV NATION, THE PRIMITIVES, THE BLOW MONKEYS, TIME BANDITS, ADAM ANT, THE STRANGLERS, VNV NATION, JOHNNY HATES JAZZ, NIK KERSHAW, PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT, TONY HADLEY, SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK, ELECTRONIC, LENE LOVICH BAND 40 YEARS, CHINA CRISIS, THE HUMAN LEAGUE. 4 more acts will be announced on December 1st.

Location

W-fest was planned for the same location as the legendary Festival D'amougies, the 5-day pop, (prog) rock and jazz festival that took place on 24th to 28th of October in 1996 with amongst others the legendary Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, Yes, Caravan, Captain Beefheart, Soft Machine en Ten Years After. This festival was also called the “Woodstock of Europe” and attracted about 80,000. Due to better service for all attendees, the location has changed to the Expo in Waregem.
