  1. Mad Cool 2018

    With Tame Impala, Nine Inch Nails, Snow Patrol in the undercard.. I can't see Beck being a headliner at Mad Cool I'm thinking about AM, Jack White or Kendrick..
  2. Mad Cool 2018

    7 stages x 3/5 bands x 3 days = 63/105 bands..? So they have to start earlier no? They have now announced 60 acts, which leaves me to believe that we have around 80 to go and that 140 will be the total amount of bands playing..
  3. Mad Cool 2018

    On the same boat here.. Came up with this Clashfinder, feel free to edit, I've no clue how the stages are going to be like.. The CM confirmed that there are about 140 bands tba, my question is from what time they're going to start the festival? 12 till 4ish in the morning? Or 6pm till 4ish am? https:///s/mcf18/ edit: I think you can switch Kasabian with Tame Impala aswell since that CM said that Kasabian would play 3th or 4th (so I'm assuming they play on the second stage?)

    PKP changed the way how they wanna set up their program a few years (the most drastic one was probably closing the Shelter). But in my opinion they've never been a festival that has it from it's headliners but rather from it's undercard. Just go to line ups from past years and you'll notice that they never really book the massive headliners stated above. The festival scene changed a lot and they had to change with it, on purpose or not.. Foo Fighters have their own history with the festival (look it up if you don't know what I'm talking about.. But I'd take that also in account + the fact that they're playing a show already in Sportpaleis has also it's own factor..) This imo is a bit delusional because most of the acts are (or used to be) acts that are upcoming bands/DJs and don't cost that much. Having the Lift/Booth instead of the Shelter is a big change money wise though. In the topic from last year, someone who has connections with someone stated that the organisation does this on purpose.. They're just doing what works best to sell out and having an extra dance tent, closing the Shelter, adding new additional stuff like Baraq Futur etc.. Which also counts for the headliners they're going for.. Let's be honest, this year's headliners were 1) extremely obvious 2) not exciting and 3) cheap! And they'll probably transit that line towards the line up of next year meaning we'll probably get 3 headliners who will attract, the PKP-audience they're going for, a lot and will probably be cheap and upcoming. With this in mind I'm thinking about Imagine Dragons, Royal Blood, Twenty One Pilots etc who I think are gonna get big spots on the bill. If you add Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire to that, I think no one will complain but you're still somewhere gonna think "well, these headliners could've been a lot more exciting.. But I'll take it"

    They'd be a 'dance'-closing act at this point. Girls In Hawaii is not ruled out imo, I'd see them playing in Klub C tbh..
  6. NOS Alive 2018

    Wait what? This year's didn't sell so fast.. What's the reason that it's selling so quickly?? There are barely acts announced so far? (compare that to Mad Cool?)
  7. Mad Cool 2018

    I honestly bet Mad Cool, NOS Alive and Rock Werchter worked together this year to book certain bands together to let 'm play at all three. (in the absence of Glastonbury in mind, why not right?) Now about the selling out thing, idk exactly but isn't this very comparable to NOS Alive aswell? Was around March when NOS sold out last year I think, but I could be wrong.

    That was referring to this year (2017). But with a new album coming up and his recent statements 'that 2018 is going to be a lot better than 2017', who knows.. I think just like last year and the most recent years aswell, I think they're going to choose safe headliners that are gonna move a good chunk of tickets but not something crazy. I saw in the R&L-topic already a good amount of suggestions but these are the ones where I'm thinking of right now (as big names on the lineup): Arcade Fire, Imagine Dragons, Florence + The Machine, Arctic Monkeys, The National, Macklemore, The War On Drugs, Royal Blood, Twenty One Pilots, The 1975, The Libertines, Bonobo...
  9. Pukkelpop 2018

    That was the frontman
  10. Mad Cool 2018

    There ya go, updated the clashfinder with the right dates, the stages where they play might be off but whatever.. Im trying https:///s/mcf18 edit: Is there any info of what the additional stages are gonna consist of btw?
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    Hip hop acts usually gets placed in the tents. Skunk Anasie and Iggy Pop playing 3th is really not happening. You're missing a lot of typical RW-bands though; The War On Drugs, MGMT, Liam Gallagher, London Grammar, 30STM, The Vaccines, Kasabian, Paramore, Noel Gallagher... With the amount of acts are touring around RW, this would be a weak Main-line up imo.
  12. Pukkelpop 2018

    How's that? They're in Spain in the same weekend as RW, how are they nailed on for PKP?
  13. Mad Cool 2018

    Are there more names where we/you know the date of playing of? Thursday; Kasabian Saturday; Depeche Mode - QOTSA - NiN - Jack Johnson
  14. Mad Cool 2018

    I think we're getting a new name every 15 mins by the looks of it. This line up is getting soo massive! Kasabian will probably be a sub/coheadliner
