    Rock Werchter 2018

    Glad I’ve seen the updated poster now, was a bit disappointed they didn’t do t-shirts with the line up on the back, not one for them normally but the RW line ups are the best I’ve been to... so I’ve made my own 😂 So if any of you see a guy in this with a Jupiler in each hand, it’s me

    Booked our bus tickets, doesnt work out too badly for me about a half an hour walk from the hotel I booked months ago so anywhere closer is now about £100+ more expensive. Quite excited for this now, just hope the organisation at the festival itself has been well thought out. They've emailed me offering to post that t-shirt pack I bought to my hotel because they were for Spanish residents only, which is a good sign... assuming it arrives! Has anyone been looking into where to watch the World Cup, or any locals have any recommendations? I'll be there for the second semi final and the final so hoping to find somewhere with a decent atmosphere, was hoping if Spain end up going that far they'd have some sort of outdoor area with a big screen but struggling to see anything online.

    Looking forward to seeing Ashcroft even more now, can't see his set list changing too much before Saturday and had five The Verve tracks out of eight (Sonnet, Space and Time, Lucky Man, Drugs Dont Work, Bittersweet Symphony along with Hold On, This is How it Feels and Music is Power). Any Edinburgh locals in here? Wondering what to do before, if it's worth staying in puns in the centre and getting a taxi or if it's better to get down near Murrayfield early.

    Think I'm going to see Gang of Youths as the first band of the festival based on this, thanks! Shame about Rufus T Firefly, really liked the sound of them but I can't miss Queens of the Stone Age.

    Pretty happy with this, a couple of annoying ones but nothing too drastic, I was expecting a lot worse. A couple will be dependant on what my girlfriend wants to see, because my priorities have changed slightly based on who I can see at Rock Werchter the week before. Leon Bridges and Fleet Foxes is probably my worst clash, but should hopefully be able to see half of each... Jack White and Sampha being another. I'll have a listen through the line up now, avoiding the ones clashing with people I'm definitely seeing, so could change. THURSDAY - Slaves, ???, Fleet Foxes, Leon Bridges, Tame Impala, Pearl Jam, Kasabian, MGMT Miss - Post Malone, Justice FRIDAY - ???, Big Moon, James Bay, Snow Patrol, Jack White, Arctics, Franz Ferdinand MISS - Ben Howard, Sampha, Alice in Chains, Massive Attack SATURDAY - Wolf Alice, Rag'n' Bone Man, Jack Johnson, QOTSA, Depeche Mode, (One of NiN/Future Islands/Glass Animals), Jet, Underworld MISS - Kaleo, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dua Lipa Ben Howard/Post Malone/AiC and BRMC I think I'm seeing at Rock Werchter anyway, and in an ideal world I'll end up seeing Massive Attack instead of Franz Ferdinand... but I can't dictate the whole weekend unfortunately 😂

    Great, cheers! I stopped checking that forum when inbetween Arctics clues we were getting ridiculed 😂 nice to still have an inside man! Fingers crossed for the line up tomorrow.

    Has anyone been before and can tell me if they had a merch stand? I wouldn't mind getting a tshirt with the line up on from this, they tweeted this earlier and responded to someone saying this wouldn't be available on site, so if there aren't going to be any others available I'll get this. https://twitter.com/madcoolfestival/status/1002218156537106433

    Was really hoping for them today when they said "In the coming days days" last weekend I assumed it meant this week. I'd have thought that means Massive Attack are on very late, which we'd probably assume anyway? I already know I'm going to have to miss some people, I just want to know how bad it will be!

    Great, cheers, I'll keep an eye out! No set times today then... fingers crossed this week or next.

    Yeah I'm waiting for the set times before I decide how to hande the clashes at Rock Werchter, hopefully won't be too long. I'm more interested in being able to book their shuttle buses back from the festival, I've currently got four rooms on booking.com in the hope I end up with at least one near a drop off point 😂

    A bit gutted about the Blossoms Editors clash, really want to see Editors but I know Blossoms was a big factor in my girlfriend agreeing to go, we'll see who wins on the day I suppose 😂 Judas, Tom Grennan, DMA's, Louis Berry, The Coral, Editors or Blossoms and Noel, clashes have gone quite well for me, may as well throw Pigeon Detectives in too.

    The Struts have dropped out, saw they got announced as Foos support other day but didn't notice the dates, looks like they've dropped out to do that 😂 replaced by SONS... can't say I know much about them, or The Struts for that matter.
