LPLive user Frank has posted that LP is rumored to play Pinkpop this year.

"A dutch radio station has confirmed that the contract between linkin park and the pinkpop festival are almost signed. Which would make sense, the 2 confirmed headliners of pinkpop attract a lot of older people(springsteen and the cure), so linkin park would be a big name for 'more younger people'. If this is true, they will be (maybe co) headlining the same day soundgarden is playing..maybe chester will perform hunger strike with them? would be awesome."

Festileaks, a popular website that posts "insider" information from the music industry (including strong rumors and semi-confirmations), has actually picked up on this and posted about LP at Pinkpop in 2012. The festival occurs from May 26-28, 2012.

Of course nothing is confirmed and this is only a rumor. Many rumors don't end up happening - see the Pinkpop rumor for last year and the rumor LP was playing a Parc des Princes show in France, but some do occur! Linkin Park last played Pinkpop in May 2007, their only appearance at the festival so far (show page here). A 2003 headlining show by LP there was part of the canceled 2003 summer tour.

Thoughts?

EDIT: LPL member anvanoppens posted about another update to this rumor here.

"During the radio show, MetMichiel, he once again reveals the arrival of Linkin Park and Ben Howard.

I think Jan Smith, Mr. Pinkpop, will go insane. After this week, The Cure (whispers) Linkin Park, I also dare to say that Ben Howard will be on the lovely festival.""

So I've seen LP 29 times, and have seen APFMH 2 times. Ouch.

Should be: seen LP 29 times, seen APFMH 30 times because that shit explodes

I'm loving all this anticipation, If they're doing Rock Am Ring/Im Park, it seems likely that a european festival run is go!

Since it's been 5 years since RaR/RiP I say it's likely they do this.

Music can be political in a way I never felt before – performing certain songs in Red Square or Tel Aviv can really affect people -"Chester Bennington"

Woops, sorry. I should have fact-checked a little better. I got the dates from this: http://www.efestival...s/pinkpop/2012/ I guess they are wrong. I fixed the main post.

indeed, so i assume its fake?


No not fake as far as we can tell, lol, just me being stupid.

Probably be adding Download & Greenfield Festivals to the rumor list soon.
You'll wake up when I walk out
Isn't that the way it plays
The leaver leaves, the stayer stays
You wouldn't make a move so I made mine
Isn't it a pity, I wish you were really in it for life
I wish that you were in it for life

They played Download last year and the full Download headliners lineup is already out. http://fido.apps.ln-...load-poster.png
The Prodigy (lol they opened for LP), Black Sabbath and Metallica.

Looks like with how many festivals LP is playing, a Chester/Soundgarden collab could likely happen. LP sadly doesn't take advantage of collabs at festivals very much anymore though. Aaron Lewis in 2003 at Reading but not so much recently...Jonathan Davis in 2007 was at most of their fests playing with Korn.

Greenfield: http://www.greenfiel...intro/index.php
Die Artze, Billy Talent, Rise Against, etc. LP could easily come in and headline that (if they don't have their headliners already).

It wouldn't surprise me, the timing seems right enough so I'll believe it. Also, Soundgarden doesn't really play any of Cornell's post garden work BUT, it shouldn't be ruled out just yet!!
jako: WID is good live, but nothing special. Stone44: agreed, and pretty sure Chester just said mythelf and not myself jako: it's the Stache's fault Stone44: blame it on the Stache

This would be gay. I live in Holland, and in 2007 I went to Pinkpop because of LP and Stone Sour. It wasn't bad, but standing between those silly three-hugging people with their Pink-hats and complaining style (LP is for kids, LP is for faggots, LP are just jumping around with their sorrow-songs etc.), disgusted me. LP's show was great (great setlist, much energy, good audio), but the crowd and the bright and clouded sky fucked a lot of things for me. When LP would be playing in The Gelredome on their own (50.000 people), or Ahoy (14.500) or even Heineken Music Hall (5000) , THAT would be great for me. But those silly people around we who don't care about LP ruined it the last time for me. I dont care about the price (80 euros, so 100 dollars), I would pay the same for a normal LP concert.

Quite exactly my opinion. Solo shows are so much better.

2010: Berlin 10/20, Stuttgart 10/22, Köln 10/27, Frankfurt 11/2
2011: Oberursel 6/19, Hamburg 6/21 (+ LPU Summit), München 6/25
2012: Rock im Park 6/3, Bristow 8/10 (Rehearsal), Bristow 8/11, Uncasville 8/12, Mansfield 8/14, Wantagh 8/15, Camden 8/17 (+ LPU Summit)

The Prodigy (lol they opened for LP), Black Sabbath and Metallica.


To be fair, Prodigy are a hell of a lot bigger over here, roughly equal size to LP I'd say.

I'd love a UK show for this tour. Hopefully they'll either do Sonisphere or their own show.
