Bar Tool had originally said they’d release around 2,000 more 3-day passes closer to April or May, but that is far from definite at this point. 

Do you reckon there is any chance of this still happening?

Might have missed this, are these the stage splits?

Na, this is just the poster in a different format on the website isn't it? It wouldn't fit with the info from Bar Tool on number of acts on each stage, nor the info on electronic tent headliners (nor the placement of electronic artists in general).

Can anyone tell me if your own drinks (alcohol and water) and food are allowed in the festival, and how much were the drinks and food last year too please? 

Trying to make a budget and being able to take our own stuff in will help tremendously. 

TIA :-)

I don't think so because Bar Tool said that before 3 day passes sold out and he left the forum right after it is sold out so there is no confirmation after that. Bar Tool also mentioned that they sold more 3 day passes then expected since Festicket had a christmas discount without informing Mad Cool

Haha yes I thought it was weird spam at first, but then I realised it was sent from Spain and the parcel contents were ENTRANCE CONCERT

Did anyone get this email who bought from Festicket? I haven't had one and assumed I was just getting the eticket.

It's just ticketmaster.es I think. They send out actual tickets and wristbands, and Festicket just give you an eticket.

Ahh fair enough, cheers! Was hoping to avoid the inevitable first day queues for wristbands!

I bought from Ticketmaster.es, 3 one day VIP tickets (one for each day) . I have 3 e-tickets (PDF with a bar code). Should I expect to receive anything in the mail? Probably not. Does it mean that on each day, I will have to get a wristband at the entrance or will the e-ticket and the bar code be sufficient? Thank you.

I really don't know to be honest because I didnt buy off ticketmaster, but those who have bought from there are saying they got an email so I'd keep an eye out. You'll definitely have to queue up at least once if not, but you never know they might give you all three at once!

in case mad cool isn't enough for you.. 

while searching of other concerts in Madrid around the festival dates I saw it on a Spanish forum, kind of a festival called                "Noches del Botanico" with just one concert in a day for more than a month.

I already got ticket for David Byrne concert on 10.7. I don't really know the other acts around mad cool dates. 

seems like a nice and small place for concerts and pretty cheap, the only problem is that the first world cup semi final is on that day..

anyone else interested? or been there?

My flight is due in at 8pm on the 10th and the tickets for David Byrne state 10pm. Seriously considering giving it a go! 

If anyone has details on stage times/curfew from the previous years festival it may aid my decision :)

Rock Werchter just posted it's complete lineup. https://www.rockwerchter.be/en/line-up It looks like Mad Cool's main differences will be Depeche Mode, Tame Impala (which is crazy), Kasabian, Justice,  Massive Attack, Dua Lipa and Underworld. Rock Werchter's main differences will be Gorillaz, The Killers, London Grammar, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds,Parov Stelar, Khalid,The Script and Marshmello.I am jealous of The Killers and Gorillaz but I am planning to see them in Lollapalooza Paris the week after Mad Cool. https://www.lollaparis.com/en/

Yes I just compared the first 2 lines of each day. Otherwise Jet is a big get for Mad Cool compared to Rock Werchter as well.

also kalkbrenner, jet, future islands, glass animals, lp, odesza, rag'n'bone , portugal the man on mad cool and a few more on werchter side too.

my feel is that werchter edges the battle a little bit, but it's a 4 days festival and more expensive.

Well, actually "exclusives" between the two fests are:

For MAD COOL:

Depeche Mode, Kasabian, Tame Impala, Massive Attack, Justice, Dua Lipa, Underworld, Richie Hawitn, Jet, Fidlar, Actress, , Paul Kalkbrenner, Sampha, Mamozets, Odesza, The Bloody Beetroots, Rag N Bone Man, Future Islands, Glass Animals, Portugal. The Man, LP, The Black Madonna.

For WERCHTER:

Gorillaz, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Killers, London Grammar, Noel Gallagher, David Byrne, The Script, CHVRCHES, Anderson Paak., Stone Sour, Parov Stelar, Fever Ray, Vince Staples, Stereophonics, Marshmello, Craig David, The Kooks, Khalid, Little Sims, Russ, Angus & Julia Stone, The Courteneers, PVRIS, Rone.

 

IMO the big losses for Mad Cool are just the Gorillaz day (shaped with all the collaboration performing earlier in the day) and Nick Cave - Friday's headliners are quite underwhelming, especially London Grammar - and David Byrne, CHVRCHES, Anderson Paak, Fever Ray, Vince Staples and Rone as undercards.

I might not be impartial, but I think that this year Mad Cool has won the fight

You are comparing a 3 vs 4 days festival though.

 

(However I totally share your opinion).

Which one you bought? Could you choose from some shipping methods? I bought 4 normal 3day passes (cheapest option) from ticketmaster.es and I just got the email with the pdf tickets like you. I don't expect more stuff. Should work ;)
