    Bad Religion are playing Lokerse Feesten, so you can rule them out. Edit: I just realized that another person posted the same 1 hour ago. Sorry!
  2. Pukkelpop 2018

    This year my wife and me will give a miss to Pukkelpop because we are waiting for the birth of our first daughter at the end of July, so for the first time in 10 years I will wait the first batch of names knowing that we won't be there for sure. I hope that all of you will get a great line-up, and I hope that they will get back Shelter Stage, because I would love to go back to Pukkelpop in the future (don't know when, but I am sure that I will go back there) Good luck with the line-up! Fingers crossed!!

    You can reach the aire using Metro or Cercanías Train. If you look a hotel in the north of the city (Nuevos Ministerios/Plaza de Castilla) You can reach the site by taxi for 12 or 14 euros.
  12. Bilbao BBK Live 2018

    This festival is trying to find it's own target after the appearance of Mad Cool. More electronic music, cheaper headliners and targetting younger people. For my personal tastes, this festival is dead, but lot of young spanish people love the fact that BBK is sharing headliners with festivals as Low Festival or Sonar instead sharing them with Mad Cool or Nos Alive.
  13. Mad Cool 2018

    My opinion is that is almost certain that Arctic Monkeys and Jack White will co-headline friday night.
  14. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Benicassim doesn’t belong to Catalonia. Benicassim belongs to Castellón province, that belongs to Comunidad Valenciana. Comunidad Valenciana provinces: Castellón, Valencia and Alicante Cataluña provinces: Barcelona, Tarragona, Lleida and Girona.

    Arcade Fire will play in Madrid in late April. We can rule them out.
  16. Mad Cool 2018

    Don't forget that Download Madrid (last June Weekend) is still missing one headliner... maybe it will be Muse...
  17. Pukkelpop 2018

    Highfield Festival (Germany, same PKP weekend) will release its first batch of names next tuesday December 5th.
  18. Mad Cool 2018

    It's an interesting question. My opinion is that there is a huge war between spanish festivals. In the same weekend you have BBK Live, Resurrection Fest, Cruilla Festival and Mad Cool. Besides, Download Madrid, Barcelona Rock Fest and FIB happens really close to that weekend. In 2019, Doctor Music Festival (that was the most important spanish festival in the late 90's) will come back after a 20 years hiatus in the same location (Pirineus Zone) and I'm sure that will be the same weekend (or close to that one). All spanish people ask the same question: why all festivals in the same dates?? The answer given by some CM of these festivals is that european routing of big artists obligate spanish festivals to happen first or second weekend in July. So, there is a huge war between spanish fests, so huge ammounts of money are getting payed to artists. Mad Cool is owned by Javier Arnaiz (who was one of the most important guys of LTI -BBK Live and Azkena orginzators- and by Live Nation. So some artists are booked in Europe with exclusivity by Live Nation, so it ensures that they will play Mad Cool or Download Madrid (also a LN festival). Mad Cool and BBK have huge money grants from local authoroty in Madrid and Bilbao, so that makes them have a bit of advantage with the rest of Spanish festivals. So, Mad Cool have: the experience of and Ex LTI chief, plus the financial support from Live Nation, plug huge grants from Ayutamiento de Madrid (local authority) and Comunidad de Madrid (autonomic authority) so now that the artist are more expensive than ever, they have more financial potencial to invest. I don't know if this festival is profitable, but I'm sure that their promoters are risking expending a lot of money and moving to a bigger site (80k people). The festival is growing really fast, so in a few years we will realize if they can go on with it. Madrid needed a big festival, 5 milliones people living here. I'm so happy to see it happening. Don't be worry about security or planning. These people have been working in festivals for a long time. But this is a new festival, so it's logical that they make some mistakes that a veteran festival as Werchter or Roskilde would never make.

    Metallica is playing twice in Madrid in 2018. Can't see it happening.
