Jimmy Fallon has The Roots, the Lokerse Feesten have Arsenal. You heard it right, our house band will be joining us again for the festive and colourful opening of the 2018 edition on August 3. A Friday night, because that’s when the wonderful twosome Willemyns/Roan come alive, setting off like a brakeless musical party train. Utterly danceable and sensual music, ingenious rhythms and sing-alongs and an endless list of catchy hits (‘Mr Doorman’, ‘Lotuk’, ‘Melvin’, ‘Estupendo’, ‘Longee’, …). Will they be playing new stuff as well? For now we have to make do with their new single ‘Amplify’, a funky tune with an African touch and ultramodern electronic sounds, and catchier than a cold on an aeroplane. They will be releasing a full cd, a movie and a book later this year. So book your ticket for this party train and join us at the main stage on Friday.
