    Mad Cool 2018

    When Massive Attack played Low Festival in Spain, they made Corizonas, a great Spanish rock band, play the part of their set that clashed with Massive Attack, with acoustic guitars and no lights. Lot of things are going bad in Mad Cool this year, but Massive Attack issue is not their fault. Justice nailed their show in the same Stage with Kasabian playing in the same Stage where Franz Ferdinand played last night.

    They will release a batch of names just after Rock Werchter, including some bands from their line-up, probably James Bay, Franz Ferdinand or The Kooks....

    Pukkelpop 2018

    These things happen when a teenager obssesed with the Kardashian sisters takes decisions in the booking process. I'm sure that Eppo Janssen dislike most of the bands that he has to book. His musical tastes are far from this line-up It's strage that the same bookers as 5 or 6 years ago, make such a different line-up from 2012 or 2013 ones... They made the Shelter disappear just to book the same rock acts every single year and put them randomly is all the stages. They also made the Wablief dissapear and now there are more belgian acts than ever (I understand that is a Belgian festival, but I think that it''s just a way to save money) I can see no direction in the decisions that are being taken in lhe last couple of years

    Pukkelpop 2018

    I don't understand why do they book always the same rock bands. Once that the Shelter Stage is dead, they only book 6 or 7 rock bands, and they are almost all repited from the last editions (Steak Numer Eight played last year, Amenra in 2013 and 2015, Deaf Havana and You Me At Six in 2014, Touche Amore also in 2014 or 2015...) Is it too dificult to change a bit the selection? Lokerse Feesten has taken all the atractive rock bands from the august circuit!! Pukkelpop has a huge booking budget, this thing can not happen in the next editions (I hope that next year I will go back to Hasselt because this year will be imposible for me)

    Pukkelpop 2018

    I think that Friday will be the "Marque Rock Day" (similar than 2017 Saturday). I can see Incubus headlining this Rock Day with Amenra, You At Me At Six, Deaf Havana and a couple more bands TBA rocking the Marquee. The lack of normal Marquee bands, make Friday look awful to all the people that are not into rock music (for me Amenra and Incubus are two great bands)

    Rock Werchter 2018

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Mad Cool 2018

    My opinion is that is almost certain that Arctic Monkeys and Jack White will co-headline friday night.

    Arcade Fire will play in Madrid in late April. We can rule them out.

    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.
