    Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    The only "secret" sets were the radio sessions of SYML, Nana Adjoa, Alex Cameron, Mattiel, Downtown Boys, Rostam, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Superorganism, next to Stage 2.

    Yes. For my personal taste (and that of the rest of our pretty large traveling party) much better than 2016 & 2017. They just could have announced much earlier that there will be no Despacio. With even 3FM hyping it, there was too much anticipation for a food court with a late night party spot. We'll definitely be back next year. My personal music highlight Top 5: 1.) LCD Soundsytem, 2.) Khruangbin, 3.) Cocaine Piss, 4.) The Comet Is Coming, 5.) Bully (missed Crows, though)

    It's crazy how often the weather forecast changed and the different forecast differ all the time. I guess we'll have to wait and see on location. BTW: Susanne Sundfor did cancel and Mozes and the Firstborn will replace her set.

    Yes, but officially drinks are limited to 4,5l. Gas-BBQ are prohibited.

    You just should be aware that you can't bring food and drinks from the campsite to the festival site. Depending on where you put up your tent you can easily spend 30-40 minutes walking from the festival site to your tent (one-way).

    I depends what else you bring food and beverages wise and if you do have a credit card with you... The festival itself is cashless - you can pay via credit card or EC-card (contactless if possible) or you have to buy a cashcard (which did cost an additional 7 Euro last year and wasn't able to be topped up).

    I think it might be an automated mail, not adapted to BKS. Probably we will receive an additional BKS-specific mail later on. It just doesn't make sense...

    Is someone staying at the safari resort? They sent an email with the information that check in for the safari resort is open up from 3pm on Friday, what seems pretty late, with the program starting at 2pm and the camping site and the regular park with the other bungalows opening much earlier... Does anyone know something different?

    It wouldn't be the first time they let people find out about certain things on location only.

    The Sunday will line-up-wise be unbeatable for me.... LCD Soundsystem, Father John Misty, Rodriguez, Gang Of Youth, Khruangbin, Ty Seagll, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mogwai, Joep Beving, Dermot Kennedy,.... Just amazing. On the other days I'm most looking foward to: Friday: The Comet Is Coming, Deerhunter, Crows, The Districts, Palm, Altin Gün Saturday: Cocaine Piss, Four Tet, The Internet, Mattiel, Pale Waves

    It seems to be a very good educated guess: 1.) James Murphy and the Deawele brothers announced to do Despacio festival setups this summer (in case people are crazy enough to pay for it. It seems to be an expensive setup) 2.) Despacio is confirmed for APE in London (25.-27.05.) and Sonar Barcelona (14.-16.06.) - the equipment is in Europe at the time of BKS and it would fit schedulewise. 3.) the mysterious "?" on the timetable suggest an additional stage. Despacio is a stage and is on the above mentioned festivals for three days with at least six hour sets each day. 4.) so far no Tokyo Hill this year. Even though I guess Tokyo Hill itself might not be the perfect spot for Despacio there is space available to move things around a bit 5.) LCD Soundsystem perform on both festivals Despacio is announced for and do even a show in a different town on one of the other festival dates, as they would have to do at the time of BKS 6.) 2ManyDJs/Soulwax have been at BKS before and even did a "secret" DJ set. I'd say it's pretty likely, but you never know until it is officially confirmed

    Dune Rats have been announced as the final addition to the The Casbah lineup. Also rumours get stronger that the "?" on the timetable could be indeed Despacio (LCD Soudsystem's James Murphy's and 2ManyDjs'/Soulwax's audiophile downtempo lovechild)... http://www.wired.co.uk/article/despacio

    The Safari Resort has just been built, but based on the map it doesn't seem further away than a lot of the camping sites and other bungalows. Depending where you are on the Safari Resort, I'd say it probably will be a 15-20 minute walk to the festival site.

    It's kind of next to each other. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Usually it's quite easy to get a decent spot in front of Stage 1 if you're there only a couple of minutes before the shows start.
