But the guy in the spanish forum (an insider) said that Mad Cool wouldn't have to say sorry for their friday headliners (implying that they would be awesome)... if they turn up being Mumford and Sons and Royal Blood... I don't know, but I've seen a lot of people saying that they do not want Mumford, and Royal Blood is not headliner material.

If so, people would be mad as fuck and not precisely in a cool way.

Hope so. I Just got a feeling that the tickets sales of Werchter is slow and they will do everything in order to attract as much international people as possible. Maybe i worng but this is how it works in the football world and i assume also in the music industry

For me mumford are the dregs of headliners. Just a terrible band.

Don’t mind RB, but they’re nowhere near headliner material.  Only get a limited sound with a bass and drum kit. Gets a bit tedious for a 90 min set

They could have avoided any speculation about the strokes by putting the bands the other way around the big snakes.

My hopes are up but preparing for the worst also (Mumford and Sons)

Saw Royal Blood at Nos Alive a few years ago. They were on the 2nd stage and we were at the front. The sound was incredible. 

As much as would love to see them again not sure if they are a headliner themselves.

It seems that nobody but litearaly nobofy wants Mumfors and Sons here.

I don't think that more than few tousnads will buy tix because of their apperance. 

Please god let it be The Strokes!!

well... first one is always the best known so if it ends up being Red Hot Chili Peppers and Royal Blood, there's no way that they could have put Royal Blood before RHCP.

I know that I asked it before BUT do you think that they are announcing tomorrow, or another clue tomorrow and announcement on thursday?

Munford/ RB.

If its the second option they have to say sorry hahaha cause the difference is tooooooooooo big.

Just a speculation (which i hope doesn't true): Rock Werchter and Sziget which are in my opnion the 2 main rivals of Mad cool of attracting internatioal people, have undestood that Mad Cool have problems with booking acts and presuade The Strokes to cancel their apperance and also presuade some other acts to refuse to show up.

Ken19 speaks as a representative of Werchter and it feels he has a lot of joy to say bad things about Mad Cool becuse they take a lot of their potential buyers (like me where i used to visit Werchter before Mad cool). Mad Cool published their lineup earlier and due to this fact have more eyes earlier compare to Werchter.

Off course the management of Mad cool messdd it up with the poster etc, but it feels there somethong behind.

It's realy intereasting for me to hear your opnion about this idea....

  

Of course all festivals are competitors but I don't think organisers are going to talk shit about other festivals to big headliners. If The Strokes don't want to play Mad Cool because they think the organisers are unprofessional or whatever reason they have, they will sure as hell not play festivals trashtalking other festivals because that is even more unprofessional.

Actually, I think the opposite happens more often: festivals keeping good relations with each other and working together to get a big headliner to tour in Europe.

Well they surely wouldn't increase the price and hype everything up just to announce a band nobody wants and one that's big enough for the second line at best, would they? 

I know this is Mad Cool we're talking about, but even they couldn't do something that dumb? 

Right? RIGHT?!

Like others here, I don't like Mumford or his Sons.

However, who efestival members like and the general public like can often be miles apart. So they might get trashed here and on other forums but they go down well with the general crowd.

I'm from Spain and imo Mumford wouldn't sell that many tickets. I mean, they're known, but I don't think they have that many fans here...

Mumford and sons....is there any actual fans? Always struck me as a "casual music fan" band and nothing more. And then potentially accompanied by royal blood (whom I like but are not headliners) .... Yikes.

Guys, let's be positive:) lol

It all started becauue of Glastonbury - they gave them the first chance to headline if i'm not mistaken.

It's the same with Stromzy - It just have upgraded his international status quite dramticlly.

I feel like it'll be tomorrow. Don't see what other clue they could give. 

People also reading way too much into the price rise, it doesn't mean anything in regard to size of the headliner.

Lastly, just because M&S are hated here doesn't make them small.

I really don't like Mumford and Sons but I'm afraid they are big in Spain. Tickets don't get shifted by people in forums and we are far from being representative of the main public tastes. Having said that, I still don't believe is gonna be Mumford purely based on the insider's comments.

Realmente no me gustan Mumford and Sons, pero me temo que son grandes en España. Las entradas no son cambiadas por personas en los foros y estamos lejos de ser representativos de los principales gustos del público. Habiendo dicho eso, todavía no creo que sea Mumford basado únicamente en los comentarios de la información privilegiada. 

I´m spanish and I dont think so

Surely it has to be Thursday, no point on making an announcement and revealing the full lineup before a price increase.

Mumford and Sons are pretty big in Spain. They did both Barcelona/Madrid a year ago with +10k attendance each.

Those numbers ain't easy to make in Spain for an """""indiewhatever""""" band. I'm not sure if KOL would do it, for example. 

I can't be less excited about the idea of them being headliners, but they're pretty big in Spain (and for years now, as they've been one of the most succesful bands through fests like Benicassim or BBK in the past).

I don't think they are big here either! They're known, sure, but not a band that would sell a lot of tickets by taking a headlining spot.

Aaaaand I don't know... why would they post a clue today if they're announcing on thursday? why wouldn't they wait until tomorrow for the clue and then announce on thursday??? If they're announcing on thursday I would expect another clue tomorrow.

Are you talking about that 360º concert back in 2018? wasn't it just Madrid? It was really expensive... I don't remember if they sold out or not.
