Hasselt, Belgium -- Pukkelpop has announced today a fairly stacked first round of names for its 2014 edition. Topping the list are Queens of the Stone Age, The National, Editors, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and, of course, Outkast.
The three-day camping festival will also see Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Portishead, Snoop Dogg, Janelle Monae, Disclosure, The Bloody Beetroots and more still to be announced. You can see the full lineup so far below.
Pukkelpop started out in 1985 as a small local music event in Belgium, and over the years has inflated into a big name stop on the European festival circuit. They aim to book a lineup with an "alternative fringe" as last year saw Nine Inch Nails, The xx, and Major Lazer headlining. This year marks the second headlining appearance for Queens of the Stone Age.
The festival will take place from August 14-16 and tickets are on sale now. Pukkelpop is primarily a camping festival, though it is not required. Camping fees are included in the ticket price.
