If we're to believe the social media, everybody was looking forward to this day.  For its 30th anniversary edition, Pukkelpop sticks to its winning formula of big hits and exciting newcomers.

No fans are more loyal than those of Linkin Park. For many years they've been bombarding our Twitter page and inundating us with wish lists... so their heroes might return to Pukkelpop. Well, their pleas have been heard: on Thursday, August 20th Linkin Park will headline on the main stage. This is only the third gig on Belgian soil since the band was created in 1996.
