Novastar

Novastar was on the main stage at Rock Werchter on Sunday, 8 July 2018. It was a childhood dream come true for Joost Zweegers; it was meant to be. For almost a quarter of a century, the Dutch-born performer has been one of the most successful Belgian acts. His debut album, ‘Novastar’ (2000), was an immediate hit (more than 70,000 albums sold). The album included ‘Wrong’, ‘Lost & blown away’ and ‘The best is yet to come’ - a promise that was fulfilled. It was the pattern for every album that followed: they shoot to the top of the charts and there are always a few evergreens to be found (‘Never back down’, ‘Because’, ‘Cruel heart’, etc.). The quest for the perfect pop song continues relentlessly. The latest album, ‘In the cold light of Monday’ (2018), Zweegers projects the feeling that things are just getting started.
