Mad Cool 2018

Coachella does that every year and that makes it really hard to plan and get ready for the festival at the same time. If we know it beforehand, we will worry much less about clashes since we will more time to plan. Also, half of Mad Cool's lineup will be at Rock Werchter a week before and most of them will probably play the same setlist in Madrid.

Coachella is the worst in so many ways, from ticket price to set times (subheadliners with 55 minute sets. Yuck.) to disclosure of the schedule. I don't really understand the hipster fascination with that fest, it's easily my least favorite of the big US fests! (Of course, I'm not a big EDM guy, either... and that's most of the draw. Or it was before POP took over.)

I got a mail on friday that a package was being shipped to me from Madrid, I guess thats my tickets. Finally, I was also a bit worried.

Bought 3 x 1 day 2 x person in january and I live in Sweden. I think they ship based on your country of residence rather when you bought it. 

 

Well, I received the wristband yesterday without an email warning... So I guess we can expect anything 🤣

Still mulling over the idea of a 13/07 day trip... probably leaving it a bit late. But as I'm unsure if the ticket would shipped to the UK in time, or if the "shipping in Iberia" option would work that I previously saw on Ticketmaster Spain, is Festicket reliable?

Yeah, think most people on here (myself included) used Festicket.

Optimistic we'll get set times tomorrow.

I don't know if tomorrow but it'll happen this next week for sure, several hints from the staff/cm point to it.

First confirmation of the schedule. It is the same as in the clashfinder. It looks like we will get the set times this week. “Everyone is crazy to know the schedule of the festival, can you tell us the approximate time slot that you drive for the Pearl Jam concert?

They will leave at 23:15 after Tame Impala and before Kasabian. In a few days we will publish the definitive festival schedule.”

Fuck sake I was hoping Kasabian would clash with Pearl Jam and MGMT would be on afterwards. Hopefully Justice are on at the same time as Kasabian.

Also 125 minutes is a bit naff compared to their usual.

I'm so excited yet nervous to see the set times. I'm going to have some horrific clashes, there's no two ways around it with this many great acts! 

Slightly off topic: does anyone know likelihood of sneaking booze in based off last year? I appreciate it's in a new location and much bigger so not exactly the same fest, but curious all the same.

Depends on what's on the other stages. i've seen Pearl Jam two times - I don't need a third one, but if there's nothing else I like to see, I'm watching them again. ;-)

I don't understand.. 125 mins is.. a little over 2 hours and it's 5 minutes more than they get at Rock Werchter? How is that not enough?

They've got many songs to play and they often play long. If you have ever seen The Cure play one of their 3+ hours set, you would like to have that everytime you see them, so that you can't miss your favourite 25 songs. ;-)

Pretty sure they usually play 2.5-3 hours at festivals. It'll just be a little annoying if at Mad Cool we lose out on some of our favourite songs compared to those 2.5-3 hour setlists.

Actually I think my ideal situation was for Kasabian to be after Pearl Jam (with Justice clashing with Kasabian) and then MGMT after Kasabian. Could still happen, although I reckon MGMT will play opposite Pearl Jam.

Because Pearl Jam's back catalogue is actually insane, 3 hours is barely enough.

They've only got 10 albums, thats not quite insane. I appreciate that they like to play long sets and cram as much as they can in for the fans, but I have to admit when I saw them last (2006?) I got bored halfway through. I would rather they did two hours and cut it down to the essentials!

They always play the same formula, never the same setlist. They'll always play a mix of hits,  b-sides, covers (most of them are great renditions) and some more rarely played songs while the setlist itself is different than the others. So basically you'll have the same experience as a 3 hours set, just much shorter. Its not gonna be 2 hours of hits hits hits.

Most of them are very strong albums though and you'll find that they play most songs off each album at least once on their tours. As well as this, like e2p2 days, they've got a fair few b-sides, some which are actually hits, e.g. Yellow Ledbetter and some rarities. I get that 3 hours does seem a lot for a band with 10 albums but they really do have a lot of material and do a fair few covers so it's a bit disappointing for some fans that we're only getting two thirds of their 'standard' set.

If you click through on that link it says they plan on releasing even more tickets to counter the black/secondary market, which the writer of the article found is a good idea lmao. I sincerely hope they don't do that because it'll only end up overcrowding the festival grounds.

Could be hugely misinterpreting this, but could this instead mean Tame Impala and Pearl Jam headlining different stages at the same time? Particularly with this in the previous response:

"Our idea was that they [Pearl Jam] would appear alongside Tame Impala in the front line, but finally they will lead on Thursday as headliners."
