About North West Walls
The North West Walls have been a striking feature of the Festivalpark in Werchter (Belgium) since 2014. Rock Werchter has shown that art has its place at a music festival and that it works. North West Walls has lent the festival fabulous artistic allure. As art projects go, this is a highly ambitious one. North West Walls is a mark on the landscape that can be admired long after the festival period has ended. It is a permanent installation. But then again it is not. Because it looks different every year.
Under the curatorship of Arne Quinze, the North West Walls are brought to life by a new set of street artists every year. Arne Quinze has invited six massive talents for North West Walls 2017: Hoxxoh (USA), Phlegm (UK), Astro (FR), Telmo Miel (NL), Jarus (CAN) and Smates (BE).
