  1. I'd say you could charge an awful lot more than $999k if you could get Bowie to tour these days !!!
  2. I know I''m not comparing apples with apples as there are still 38 acts to be announced, including 3 headliners but at the moment It's not looking nearly as good for me as it did last year. I'm down these (would have seen them in the next few days) - Kings of Leon, Paul Weller, Sam Fender, Cage the Elephant, Refused, Phoebe Bridges, City & Colour, Richard Hawley, Sticky Fingers I'm only up RHCP so far. There may be a few gems in the other new announcements today but don't think there will be many, hopefully there will be some good additions in the next few weeks.
  3. Did you get an email to say the flight has been cancelled? I've just tied to get a refund now and they say they wont give it to me yet as the flight (on 8th July) has not yet been cancelled, even though it doesn't show up on their website as a flight I can book.
  4. I think the thought is that people who have not bought at the current price will need 1 (or 2) major signing(s) to get them to open their wallet at a higher price.
  5. Very True, the posts from @Ken19 have been the most informative over the last few months. I've no idea where these stupid comments have come from.
  6. Well, Hinds are playing Wednesday 8th at Mad Cool....
  7. Rage's announcement, wrong part of the world in early July!
  8. and Rage are the 1st headliner announced for electric Picnic in early September too.
  9. The Strokes have just announced another 3 festivals in Norway (OYA) , Finland (Flow) & Sweden (Way Out West) for Mid August so they are still announcing.
  10. Except Inhaler are in Lisbon at Nos Alive on the 9th July so could easily make the short hop to Madrid for the 10th? Saw them last year and they were surprisingly good.
  11. My big concern here is that ticket sales have been strong so far, so there is not the same need to increase sales by signing big names. Live Nation have history here of saving a few quid when they can. Electric Picnic completely sells out way in advance of a single name being announced. They don’t spend big bucks for big names here as there is no need to. Is Mad Cool now in a similar place?
  12. I realise I'm probably looking for a straw to grasp here but this is a current list of acts who play either MC or Nos, and then move to the other the very next night. Alt-J Billie Eilish Cage The Elephant Finneas Hobo Johnson Taylor Swift Faith No More Seasick Steve Anderson.Paak Tom Misch Haim Parcels In fact Haim & Parcels are currently going from MC on the 10th to Nos on the 11th.
