Rock Werchter is a music festival in the village of Werchter in Belgium. The editions of 2003, 2005 and 2006 gained the Arthur award for best festival in the world at ILMC. Since the 2003 edition Werchter has become a 4-day festival, as it was sold by owner Herman Schueremans to American organizers Clear Channel Entertainment which had both positive and negative effects.

The festival started in 1974 as a one-day festival with performances from Banzai and Kandahar. Over the years it became Belgium’s largest music festival. Originally it was a double-festival, called “Torhout-Werchter”, with two festival areas on different places in Belgium: one in Werchter and one in Torhout. In 1999, the festival dropped the Torhout site and since, it only takes place in Werchter.

The festival started off as a one-day event, became a two-day festival in 1996, went on to become a 3-day festival in 1999, and has been a 4-day festival since 2003.
