Pukkelpop adds over 30 new names to line-up, tickets virtually sold out

Pukkelpop, one of Belgium's biggest music festivals, has significantly reduced the number of empty slots on its bill, announcing more than 30 new names on Wednesday. The Kills, Maisie Peters, Killer Mike and Boys Noize, among others, will perform at the three-day festival in Kiewit, which is almost entirely sold out.

With only a handful of tickets left for this summer's edition, the organisers have announced a number of new names of national and international artists who will be appearing in August.

New additions to the Friday line-up include English-American indie rock duo The Kills, British drum 'n' bass act Dimension, pop singer Maisie Peters, as well as DIKKE and Joy (Anonymous). There will be Irish house and techno/rave from Kettama, hardcore punk rock from Mannequin Pussy, dance pop from METTE, nostalgic soul and vintage R&B from Thee Sacred Souls and Tom Grennan.

Saturday's line-up includes Killer Mike, Boys Noize, Ada Oda, Baby Queen, the happy house of Confidence Man, the rock of Dead Poet Society, DJ Malugi and rock 'n' roll tornado Miles Kane. Model/Actriz, Mount Kimbie, Dutch singer and rapper S10 and the punkwave fusion of Sextile have also been added to the bill.

On Sunday, Flemish pop sensation Pommelien Thijs will fill a solo slot after briefly sharing the stage with Ghent-based indie band Bazart last year. The final day has also been extended: French techno DJ and producer Anetha, post-punk from Northern Irish trio Chalk, beautiful indie pop from Isaac Roux, young American singer-songwriter Jessie Murph, heavy hardcore from Lionheart, singalong pop from Meau, rock act Ramkot, DJ Salute and rapper Sampa The Great.
