    Ok, I've just bought a few without reading it properly. It's only valid between 02:00-05:00 which is no good for getting to the festival so we'll just be spending money to get up there in the day. My fault for rushing into it but I was expecting a shuttle service to run similar to Optimus/NOS Alive that runs a lot of buses at the start and less during and then a lot at the end of the night too.

    I think it may change as that is part of their mini residency in Vegas where I'm sure they'll switch it up across the 3 dates. I'm 2nd row for the gig at Southbank Centre next Friday for Robert Smith's Meltdown which'll be a cool experience but I'm expecting 2 completely different sets for London and Mad Cool.

    This image is the closest we've seen to 'official'. Obviously it's just a concept but I'm sure they'll be aiming for something similar.

    We're the same - before we had Rival Sons, Future Island and Black Rebel Motorcycle club to choose from. Nice big 2.5 hour gap to get drunk / discover some new music I guess.

    Yup, that's ripped up what I put yesterday - some big clashes in there for the group I'm going with but the biggest win is being able to see Underworld closing!

    Based on the current clashfinder: Thursday: Slaves > Fleet Foxes > Tame Impala > Pearl Jam > Kasabian > MGMT (missing Milk Teeth & Justice - there was an earlier version that allowed me to see most of Kasabian and Justice) Friday: Marmozets > Jack White > Snow Patrol > Arctic Monkeys > AIC > Franz Ferdinand > ATDI (missing Young Fathers, Ben Howard, Massive Attack and leaving FF early) Saturday: Wolf Alice > Future Islands > BRMCC > QOTSA > Depeche Mode > NIN (missing Jet, Deaf Havana, Glass Animals and Underworld) Would be really happy if the real lineup matches that, expecting a few changes though.

    Had a listen, on par with his previous albums but no big jump anywhere. Couldn't pick a stand out song from this album though unlike I Forget Where We Were and Every Kingdom. Might take a few more listens.

    That's me Was just about to post it here. Still no real indication then... Edit: Just spotted my great grammar in there too....

    The current clashfinder suits me quite well (if accurate). Compared to the previous one I'd seen I now have less clashes but will still be missing out on Ben Howard, Massive Attack, Jet, Deaf Havana, Glass Animals and Underworld. I'll be really happy if I can see a big chunk of Pearl Jam, Justice, MGMT and Kasabian all in one night... whether that actually happens is a different question

    I'd never buy tickets from Viagogo, ever! StubHub has a slightly better reputation but still empowers touts. I'd exhaust platforms such as Twitter, Twickets, forums first before going to either. A MadCool representative did at one point suggest that there may be a small amount on sale nearer the festival.

    I wonder if Instagram being out of service is delaying them announcing anyone else

    They seem to be re-posting the same ones?

    Haha yep, that's the one! Seems that quite a few are heading there. We're a group of 8 and it seemed ideal and had decent enough reviews!
