  1. Mad Cool 2018

    Every day is loaded. I'm just praying I'll be able to see PJ, MGMT, and Kasabian Thursday... Franz, Jack White, and Arctics Friday, and NON, QOTSA, and Depeche Mode on Sunday. Quite possibly the best festival lineup I've been to.

    Man, I hope there aren't fans wearing pillowcases with that emoji drawn on them at the festival. Talk about nightmare fuel for the campgrounds.
  3. Mad Cool 2018

    Oh boy. I mean, I guess, that's like, your opinion, man.
  4. Mad Cool 2018

    SMH at the idea that anything about this lineup is weak. This is more than likely the best lineup in the *world* in 2018, with the coming headliners.
  5. Rock Werchter 2018

    I think we're all just waiting patiently to be assured Arctic Monkeys will be in the lineup. I don't know if it's been discussed, but Alex Turner is also good friends with Josh Homme from QotSA, and even guested on QotSA's album before last. That doesn't really impact the money men and contracts and stuff, but it certainly can't hurt.

    LOL. I'm damn sure the AMs would not be offended for a moment to share headlining duties with a legitimate musical genius who snaps his fingers and creates headliner acts. Bear in mind that the White Stripes (if he grabbed Meg back or just billed himself that way) would be the #1 headliner at any festival anywhere today. Not to mention Jack White is an unabashed fan of the AMs and probably brought them a lot of fans: http://www.nme.com/news/music/the-raconteurs-63-1364587

    Bonnaroo woulds have been a nice headliner lineup like seven years ago. Now it looks like sloppy seconds across the board. Nothing against any of those bands, that's about as generic a headliner lineup you can get in 2017.
  8. Mad Cool 2018

    I think there's a strong possibility Mad Cool is making a big name for themselves right now. People are incredibly excited about this lineup, it would be a step backwards to soft-shoe the final headliner. They want people talking about how great Mad Cool was for years. That's more valuable to them then an extra $500k because they decided to back out of Jack White.

    Hrmm. As someone who's mainly concerned about conflicts, a smaller space probably means less conflicts, right? You can't very well have two loud-ass bands playing for an hour straight opposite each other, I wouldn't think. The conflict checker predictions seem too good to be true. Hell, this whole festival seems too good to be true.
  10. Coachella 2018

    Was that the Kasabian/Arctics/Pulp year? I loved that year!
  11. Rock Werchter 2018

    That lineup is hilarious. Tickets would be $800 a pop.
  12. Coachella 2018

    I just can't believe that's the lineup they roll out for $429 US. They do have camping there, so it saves some money, but compared to the EU festivals in lineup *and* cost, it's just a mess. They consider themselves the best US festival, I cannot see that anymore.
  13. Coachella 2018

    Coachella 2018 is officially lined up! If this is your type of pain, enjoy! "The lineup for the 19th annual Coachella Festival has been announced, with Beyonce, the Weeknd, and Eminem headlining Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, respectively. Other big named include SZA, HAIM, Kygo, Jamiroquai, Tyler the Creator, Post Malone, Portugal the Man, ODESZA, Migos, Cardi B, and St. Vincent."
  14. Mad Cool 2018

    I think Mad Cool is gonna be packed with folks from North America - that lineup is just too good to turn away from. I cannot wait to make the trip! I wonder how the conflicts are going to work out with all this talent. Just a few bands I've seen before, or would like to see again: Thursday: Pearl Jam, MGMT, Kasabian, Justice, Tame Impala Friday: Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, Alice in Chains, At the Drive-In, Massive Attack Saturday: Queens of the Stone Age, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Portugal. The Man Based on last year's Clashfinder for Mad Cool, it shouldn't be too hard to see a lot of top acts. I can't wait!

    So there's no nearby campground type places or anything easy/cheap for festgoers? I'll be alone with a backpack, so maybe I'll just throw some money at some other people taxi'ing back to town after. I don't want to get arrested for vagrancy!
