  1. That lineup to be fair was very similar to something you might get at primavera but Mad Cool is a much more commercial festival or at least it feels that is the direction its going in. Thankfully I'm going to be at Primavera and Mad Cool this year
  2. People were speculating during covid that social media people would be the first sorta staff to be cut from the jobs of festivals as they are alot more expendable than the rest of the staff. I agree though Mad Cool has terrible communication. Primavera isn't much better either on communication
  3. Primavera appeals to a different audience though. Mad Cool brings in the most popular rock bands and Primavera have more "niche" headliners I think both can easily survive.
  4. Fair enough my bad they're still really poor and unprofessional with regards to embargoed acts
  5. It's the first option I had a ticket for the 2020 edition they were rumoured to have MCR and the strokes as headliners but the information leaked early and it pissed the bands out and they ended up replacing them with Royal Blood and Mumford and Sons they're notoriously bad for annoying bands etc with teasing them before they are allowed to announce them etc. I'd honestly not have high expectations for the final 2 headliners. Here's hoping instead of two weak headliners they just get a bigger headliner in to compensate for it and bump someone up
  6. Green Day I don't think will ever play mad cool after last time they played an acrobat died just before their performance and they were really annoyed nobody mentioned this until after they finished
  7. Just read an article describing it as an arena for 15,000 doesn't sound like it'll be that big an event
  8. That's just a gigs in Scotland promotion didn't say anything about being linked to connect festival. That gig is likely to be a Calvin Harris summer sessions show
  9. Top 5 Weekend 2 Tyler the creator Playboi Carti Lorde The Strokes Tame Impala
  10. It's the 26th to 28th August so definitely possible that there will be some crossover between the two festivals
  11. You should be able to get tickets via resale at face value
  12. Brilliant, scotland has really missed out on having a big camping festival since T in the park ended. I'll definitely try make it to this provided the lineup is good
  13. Is this likely to be a camping festival??
  14. Highly doubt it festival season came back this year. We may still need winter lockdowns but I'm sure we'll all be back at large events by end of March at the latest
  15. Faith No More have dropped out as headliner. Who would be likely to replace them?
  16. New Kasabian song Alygatyr was pretty poor on first listen. Might be a grower though
  17. Thankfully I'm one of the lucky ones going to both. Never been this excited for a festival before both line ups have really knocked it out the park
  18. Flume being added to The Loop is huge. He's fantastic live and can't wait to see him
  19. I think Dave would be quite a cheap headliner option the rest though would all cost alot
  20. How much will it likely cost to spend a week in Barcelona including the festival?
  21. Not officially ruled out but the stuff coming out about the singer Josh Homme doesn't look promising and I wouldn't be surprised if they don't get booked based on the accusations
  22. Muse potentially?? they're playing in europe in July and definitely would shift some tickets
  23. That's more likely where Lorde would play
  24. I'm impressed by how many tickets Dave has shifted today. Definite headliner material. Not my cup of tea though and I doubt many of my friends like him so hopefully the other headliners are more appealing to us. Dreading to think about how dull a Dave Courteeners day could be for me ahahaha
  25. I completely agree with you that he's bang on the money for the demographic but I still just don't think he's got singalongs. Stormzy is much more commercial and he didn't even maintain a consistent atmosphere for his set alot of folk seemed disinterested unless it was one of his hits. Dave has thiago Silva and funky friday and maybe location where I reckon most attendees would know the words. Even though he is a terrific social commentator I still just don't think you'd end a night on him he just won't bring a bouncy lively atmosphere IMO. I seen him in Glasgow and the crowd seemed pretty bored until thiago silva and funky Friday were on. I get he is a bigger deal in england but I still think in terms of popularity stormzy is miles ahead of him and he would be better headlining the second main stage than closing the night.
