Weather Watch : Eurockéennes, Werchter
Roskilde and Ruisrock forecasts also included
Tom Bentley - 02 July 2009
Despite the pan European heat wave things are looking a little gloomy for Les Eurockéennes de Belfort 2009 with rain predicted from Friday through to Sunday. The sun is due to pop in at random points though to catch the likes of Cypress Hill, Kanye West and The Prodigy. Temperatures will fall between 22C and 27C, perfectly adequate for dips in the Malsaucy lake. If it’s raining anyway, there can’t be any harm in getting a little more wet can there?
Recommended paraphernalia: wellies, brollies and swimming togs
Those heading to Rock Werchter 2009 in Belgium to catch the likes of Coldplay, Metallica and 2ManyDJs are set to be greeted with glorious sunshine and temperatures of 29C on the Thursday afternoon. By Friday things will become more tempestuous with rain and storms due throughout the day, so take care if you’re holding the tallest flag on site. Temperatures will be a tad cooler at 25C for Saturday and Sunday with sunny intervals and the odd shower expected.
Recommended paraphernalia: The lot – shades, brollies, flip-flops and wellies
Roskilde 2009, the Glastonbury of the continent is set to be bathed in a mixed bad of on/off showers and beating rays. The Thursday and Sunday, which will see Kanye West and Coldplay headline respectively, will be hit by that so called mixed bag. Punters can expect to bask in the full beams of the Scandinavian summer come Friday whit clouds setting in for the Pet Shop Boys on Saturday. Temperatures will remain around a cushty 25C. Not bad for Denmark.
Recommended paraphernalia: flip-flops, parasols and a brolly
Although slightly cooler Ruisrock 2009 will enjoy much the same weather as Roskilde with the sun expected to shine right through Saturday and play a smaller role amongst the clouds on the Friday and Sunday. Slipknot, Mew and Faith No More headline this one which will also give punters a chance for swim. A cool 22C outside and a dip in the North Sea alright? Easy!
Recommended paraphernalia: flip-flops, parasols, a brolly and your trunks
