  1. Mad Cool 2018

    Me too (bought three day tickets), e-tickets were sent by e-mail right away, still waiting for the wristbands though...
  2. Mad Cool 2018

    I have almost three weeks of interrail planned, doing Mad Cool and catching King Crimson and The Cat Empire in Germany at the start of the month. Oh, and a ton of interesting stuff in between
  3. Inmusic Festival 2018

    Certainly the best way from the UK to this part of Europe is flying with Ryanair/Easyjet to Trieste or either of the Venice airports (marco polo and treviso). From there you have various already mentioned options, the one I'd add is GoOpti shuttle service (I swear they are not paying me to advertise them ), which is in my experience by far the best value for money option aside from having someone with a car obviously. Feel free to PM me for additional info or if more of you are interested I can put together a bit more detailed overview of various transportation options since it's been asked a couple of times.
  4. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    Last year it was five gigs a day, I think all of the bands were already on the lineup, bottom half of the poster (Slutface, Sundara Karma, Amber Arcades, Amazons, Cigarettes after sex, Andy Schauff, Stuff., Canshaker Pi, etc.).

    There's a "secret garden" stage hidden behind one of the main ones. It's small. Super small. Bands playing there are the bands already on the lineup playing an additional set. There's a board with the timetable i think, but they announce it on social media a day or two in advance. I only saw Cigarettes after Sex there. Perfect kind of music for that stage. If you want to actually see the band, be there early.
  6. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    @timeforheroes Glad to help. About waist-high, yes. If you have the airbed in you struggle to even sit in it and there's just enough space at the end of the airbed to put your suitcase in. That's a 2 person tent, wouldn't know about bigger ones. Regarding rain we luckily didn't have any last year, but the tents are made of several layers of cardboard so I suppose it would have to pour heavily all three days to really get through it. Wouldn't worry too much, and you can always pack some waterproof material to put over it I suppose. The walk is ok, the annoying thing is the acts start early (2-ish) and you have to go 2 or 3 times each way every day if you want a bit of rest/change clothes and miss a lot of acts inbetween. Didn't really use the market much, it's small - basics mostly. @pikeatheplace 0,4 beer was 4,4€ last year if I remember correctly, and 1€ for the plastic cup you get back if you return it. Reasonable prices for the Netherlands I'd say. The food is a bit more expensive (about 7-8€ for a hotdog (best hotdog ever though), 10 for burgers, 12 for large pad thai, etc), but the food is absolutely superb and you have as much choice as you could possibly want. Also a lot of vegan options if you're that weak (just a joke, before pc police comes knocking).

    Me and my friend took it mostly because we flew in and couldn't fit a decent tent in our hand luggage. The big plus is that it's the first tent I've been in that lets you sleep past 8am if it's hot. We took the airbed option too, which was comfy. The drawback is that it's quite small - you can live with it, but for two people to be really comfortable you'd need a four person tent. It's wide enough to sleep but a struggle to get in and do anything with your suitcase/change. Check in was fast and witout complication, although the kartent area was tricky to find and about 5 different volounteers didn't seem to know anything to point us in the right direction. The area also appeared to be pretty much as far from the festival site as possible - a bit annoying 15-20 minute walk to the site, but we had good bathroom facilities and a market nearby (selling 0,33 beer cans for 1€ too). If you're flying in it's well worth the money I'd say. If you can bring your own tent just do that instead, arrive early and set it up in the camp right by the festival site - there's trees everywhere so you should be able to find shade too.

    Oh yes - what's the payment system - based on this coupons? And why is "mini" version of a drink two or three times more expensive than the regular one? 1mads=1€? 1BTC?
  9. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    Last year they had more returning acts than you would usually expect, especially for a festival that young. Apart from the headliners from last three editions I really couldn't rule anyone out based on how long it is from their last appearance.
  10. Mad Cool 2018

    @Yelo, the Parmiggiana Thing is - this year the festival is moving to a new and bigger site, so we can't really know anything. There were logistical problems last year, which is down to the festival being really young I suppose. So far we have reasons to believe they have learned from it, selling less tickets than max capacity and expanding the site. How big the VIP space will be - I guess - depends on the number of VIP tickets sold. I don't think they will pack GA ticket holders too much while leaving VIP half empty, but as said before - we know nothing for sure.
  11. Mad Cool 2018

    Releasing another package of tickets which has been rumoured would decrease the chance of prices going insanely high on black market. And according to BarTool's comments that's exactly their point. 2000 more is not a lot anyway, so try to think of it as paying 50€ more just to be safe and not miss out... I mean if I was in your place I'd seriously consider buying separate day tickets even if it was confirmed that another package would go on sale. The two main stages had half of the space fenced off and easier access for VIP ticket holders last year, I imagine this year will be similar.
  12. Mad Cool 2018

    They actually sold more 3-day tickets than planned initially due to one of the ticket platforms selling more (was it Festicket with their discount?) - and although I can't remember the exact number it was quite big. It surprises me too they haven't sold out the day tickets yet - even buying 3 separate day tickets sets you back 300€ which is still reasonable for that lineup.
  13. Mad Cool 2018

    I would expect Kalkbrenner and Hawtin later on too. I also expect Justice and Massive attack playing after the headliners, resulting in a clash with whoever is on one of the main stages after the headliner (for example AiC, Kasabian,...)
  14. Mad Cool 2018

    BarTool promised them "as soon as possible"... I'm feeling quite optimistic...
  15. Mad Cool 2018

    Thursday won't have a co-headline structure, that much has been confirmed. Also, Post Malone on Thursday opens up a whole new world of potential clashes I could survive easily
