TW Classic 2018, België, zaterdag, 14. juli 2018

One fine summer day, one stage, a select group of popular artists. The recipe of one day festival TW Classic is tried and proven successful. TW Classic 2018 takes place on Saturday 14 July at the Festivalpark in Werchter (Belgium). On the bill: Editors, The National, Kraftwerk 3-D and dEUS. A lot of today’s music finest that is. Another 3 names will be added to the line-up later.

Editors and Werchter. A match made in heaven. Editors perform in Werchter for the first time in 2006. Early afternoon, on Rock Werchter’s main stage, in the blazing sun. Two years later they play the 1000th show in the history of the festival. Another two years later, Editors make a hit record at Rock Werchter. 'No Sound But The Wind - live at Rock Werchter 2010' is a golden single. It tops the Belgian Ultratop charts. There’s this special bond between Belgium and Editors. Every new album is an event, every concert a celebration. 2018 is going to be a great year. 'Violence', Editors' 6th album, is due for release on 9 March. A few days later, Editors play a sold out Sportpaleis in Antwerp. Cherry on the cake: headlining TW Classic. "Editors has a deep and rich history with the Werchter site and we are absolutely thrilled to be asked to headline the 2018 TW Classic – not just to close the show on one of our favourite festival grounds but also to share the stage with a bunch of artists whose work we love and respect, in what will surely be one of the gigs of the summer!", the band adds.

The National knows how to move and inspire a crowd. The band is the standard bearer of the American indie rock. A great live band too. Last month, The National took home the 'Best Alternative Music Album' Grammy - their first!- for 'Sleep Well Beast' (2017), the band’s first album in four years. Since the release of their 3rd album 'Alligator' (2005) The National performs at a high level. 'High Violet’ (2010) was met with commercial success. The National are one of the best American bands of the past 20 years.

Kraftwerk were among the winners at this year’s Grammy Awards. They won the Best dance/electronic album Grammy for "3-D The Catalogue," a high-tech recreation of their back albums. In 2014 Kraftwerk founder Ralf Hütter was honoured by the Grammy Academy with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Rightfully so. Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. Some claim them to be more influential than the Beatles. The electro pioneers bring their hugely successful 3-D concert tour to TW Classic. A unique show. Everybody will be issued with 3-D glasses. Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true "Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”

dEUS is an essential band. The best thing to ever happen to Belgian pop music. For what they have achieved so far, but also for inspiring many other bands, for making them believe. dEUS was the first Belgian independent band to sign to a major international record label. The first to play the best international music festivals. The five from Antwerp return to the stage after a 18 months hiatus. The first show - with new guitar player Bruno De Groote - takes place on familiar grounds.
