HEAVEN 17

Born out of The Human League, Heaven 17 marked the 80ties and the world as a superb synthpop band.

Temptation, And that's no lie are but 2 of their hit-songs. Heaven 17 is part of the UK's rich synthpop and new wave heritage. Their inspired many other groups and left long lasting memories to thousands of fans during their multiple concerts. Now you will have the opportunity to grasp their powerfull live-performance and carry that long lasting memory with you for decades to come.

The W-Festival proudly presents its third and fourth Belgian band !

Whispering Sons

This new Belgian band - lead by a woman - calls itself the new generation punk/cold wave. And they just might be on to something big ! You can aspect a mixture of a 'Siouxsie and The Banshees' and Sisters of Mercy sound. Without losing their own identity. This is a real discovery and feast to our ears. Enjoy ! As we are sure you will !

The Serious Five

Our festival opener !

We'd like to think of The Serious Five as the Belgian Fad Gadget. The group was discovered during the 'Gentse feesten' early 90ties and experienced a succesfull period of many years. Today, years later, they resurface with a new EP. They have choosen the W-Festival as the launchmoment of that EP. We, as you, are looking forward to the result ! But we expect this to be the relaunch of our very own Belgian Fad Gadget !

Belgian bands

Before revealing the 5th headliner - building up the tention :-) - we are (very) pleased to present the following 2 (out of 4) Belgian bands attending the W-Festival.

Portrait B

Its Belgian, its unique, its new, its supervised by non other than Luc Van Acker, its modern new wave à la Belge and its present on the W-Festival to bring their newest EP - and much more - live. Discover with us this upcoming band ! You'll love it !

De Brassers

If you look for the roots of Belgian Punk you will automatically see DE BRASSERS as the very first name on the list ! In the 70ties, the band was inspired by the sound of the very best e.g.The Clash, The Damned etc. and succeeded in giving the genre a very own Belgian sound. They have a strong live-reputation and bring a set you are not likely to forget very soon... We are very pleased to have them onboard !
