Pukkelpop is an annual music festival which takes in Hasselt, Belgium in mid-to-late August ever year. The first Pukkelpop festival was held in 1988. This year’s festival will be 25th Anniversary edition of Pukkelpop and will feature artists like Iron Maiden, Placebo, The Prodigy, Queens of the Stone Age and Snow Patrol. South African Zef rap outfit and internet sensation Die Antwoord and self-proclaimed pirate of the caravan park and Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow will also be part of the Pukkelpop line-up this year. Pukkelpop is the 2nd largest music festival in Belgium. In 2009 more than 180,000 people attended the festival. It definately sounds like one of those festivals I’d like to do one year. Maybe I should save up for a European trip for 2011? Today’s Daily Cool Photo features the crowd at the Pukkelpop festival. Seeing this crowd makes me want to dodge customs at O.R. Tambo and fly to Belgium for this year’s festival this weekend (from the 19th to 21st of August). This might be the ultimate post Oppikoppi depression killer.
