Feel like my hope for Thom Yorke has been dashed with that Bilbao announcement, unless he plays all three

One of the Mad Cool itk’s on the ARF Forums said a week or two ago that there would be no Thom.

Everyone seems to be ruling out The Strokes. But If MadCool runs Thursday - Saturday, and Bilbao BBK Friday - Sunday, it would make a lot of sense to do both over that four day spell? Play Bilbao Sunday, Madrid Thursday or Friday? 

A joint headline slot (like QOTS & Depeche Mode did last year) with The Strokes and The National on the Friday would be huge.

The one day it definitely won't be is Friday. BBK is Thurs-Sat, same as Mad Cool. The Voidz and The Strokes are both playing BBK so if it happens it'd be Thursday or Saturday with JC's 2 bands playing consecutive days in Bilbao. One thing that makes it a lot less likely though, is the lack of overlap between the two festival's acts. I'm not sure there were any in 2018 and it's just that Spanish band for 2019 so far.

In 2018 the overlap was Porches. and Morgan. And Friendly Fires replaced Glass Animals at MC, so three smaller acts. 

Quick look at 2017, just see Cage The Elephant at both. Also not a headliner, bit of a third or fourth down act in Europe.

Edit: 2016 isn't really a fair comparison because they didn't share weekends, Mad Cool was three weeks earlier. At least they shared Editors.

How reliable was that x% of the poster before christmas info? What was their link to the festival? Can't remember. I've almost given up on getting more names in 2018.

It was said at the media event by Mad Cool staff so should be reliable.

If the Strokes are confirmed for Bilbao BBK and Doktor Music, they need to perform 3-4 nights in 4 days if they will be at Mad Cool and/or Nos Alive as well

they won't be at either, it's sure now.

The Smashing Pumpkins are going to be at Mad Cool, Nos Alive and Doktor Music so it’s not really impossible. It depends on their agreement with both Bilbao BBK and Doktor Music and which day the Voidz will perform at Bilbao BBK

Doktor Music just announced The Voidz. The Strokes and The Voidz are out of Mad Cool and Nos Alive. I can’t believe how they missed them. 

you just said it’s still possible here:

it’s really difficult for me to believe mad cool let them go, i believe many people will buy tickets for bbk instead of mad cool bc of the strokes............. let’s wait for the announcements, as you said, it’s still possible....

We don't know their pricetag and wishes. Doubt whether Mad Cool and NOS Alive wants them as outright headliners and pay the big money. Smaller BBK and Doctor Music can have them as headliners and maybe for slightly less money. Plus maybe the thing with The Voidz.

I said it’s possible because I didn’t think they will announce the Voidz as well. There is no way two band sharing the same member will travel three different cities in Spain in three days. Mad Cool just missed the big band that could’ve made them talked about again

Lazaretto just said they will make an announcement before Christmas.

I'd just said to myself I'd stop hoping and checking at the key times. They're leaving it very late. Question for anyone knowledgeable on this kinda stuff - how exactly do festivals ensure they don't announce at the same time? I'm talking about the posters really, not tweeting an act.

I hear 1989, 2001, 2007, and an act that started in the 60's. Soon.

„An act“? Has to be Neil Young. He could do the 11th right before Hyde Park. If he still does back-to-back shows.

So tomorrow? Or friday?
