  1. Mad Cool 2018

    Is anybody renting a room/series of rooms that could use another person to defray costs? I'm coming in for Rock Werchter and traveling down for Mad Cool, but I haven't nailed down anyplace to stay just yet and I'm wondering if other non-local Pearl Jam/etc fans might want to combine forces. I'm a solo American who has never been to Madrid, but I plan on attending the entire festival!

    Friday looks pretty dismal, but glancing back at Thurs/Sat/Sun confirms this lineup is incredibly packed. Maybe Friday just turns into a chill day. Expect a boring headliner like The Killers, who are still a fun watch.

    Pearl Jam are immensely popular worldwide, with a huge tour following. They'll play a really long set. And quite frankly, they're worth the eyeballs and ears... just an absolutely great live band with a bunch of sing-along songs everybody accidentally knows. Note: this isn't an argument about their charting on albums or songs. Even in the USA they don't chart high... but they have no problem instantly selling out shows. Skip Pearl Jam at your own risk!

    I somehow have no clue what a Biffy Clyro is. I've seen the name before, but I'm guessing they're just not a big deal in the USA?

    This NSFW video is the worst remix of a rock song with the best video of a remix I've ever seen. How the heck you remix "Woman" and essentially completely remove that guitar riff is beyond me. :\ That said, BRING ON WOLFMOTHER! That would be a great add.

    There's definitely another headliner next to Jack White. It's probably Arctic Monkeys, but if it isn't, it's someone else with a big fanbase that we will enjoy watching. Never fear! This is gonna be a great festival. So excited.

    I would be completely shocked if Cave and Reznor clashed. Their fanbases are so intertwined it would just be weird. I can imagine Trent coming onstage and saying "What are you all doing here, didn't you hear Nick Cave is playing right now?" I've never been to a Euro festival, and RW and Mad Cool are making me so happy I can take time off in the summer!

    Nick Cave and Trent Reznor are just going to cover each other's movie soundtracks.

    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.

    Oh boy. I mean, I guess, that's like, your opinion, man.

    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.
  13. 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.
