Rock Werchter

Today’s FLUU is ruled by the news that international (mainly British) stars Ellie Goulding, Babyshambles, Birdy and MGMT will rock this year’s Rock Werchter, lining up alongside – well, slightly lower than – headliners Pearl Jam and Kings Of Leon at the Belgian event. Spiffing.

That said, the Midlands-based Handmade bash isn’t doing too badly either, with Three Trapped Tigers, iLiKETRAiNS and Shonen Knife all scoring high amongst its first lot of confirmations.
