Hasselt, Belgium -- There are so many festivals across the US over the summer that we often lose sight of their European counterparts. That's why this week we're putting the spotlight on August 15-17's Pukkelpop and its lengthy, varied lineup.

To say our playlist to Pukkelpop is scattered is an understatement. The festival's bill spans genres as quickly as sets change and this playlist follows suit. Pukkelpop doesn't just highlight a rock band (Nine Inch Nails), a rapper (Eminem), indie darlings (The xx), and an EDM group (The Prodigy) for its headliners but rather continues the mix-and-match trend throughout its three days and across its eight stages with a notable emphasis as well on heavy metal.

Through our playlist-curating process, Pukkelpop proved itself to be the ideal festival for those who answer, "What's your favorite genre" with, "I like a little bit of everything." Whether they mean it or not.
