TW Classic originated from the Rock Werchter festival. That festival has become one of the leading festivals in the world and now runs for four days. The organization wanted to give the visitors of the first hour something back and decided to organize a festival according to the old concept of one summer day at the weekend and one stage. There are mainly experienced and successful artists who are complemented by smaller Belgian and Dutch groups.
The festival takes place in the same place as the Rock Werchter festival, this is the festival meadow in Werchter.
