Mad Cool Festival 2020

Recommended Posts

If it's just a headline slot behind The Strokes I don't see why it matters what billing they get. Not much different to Prophets of Rage headlining alongside The Cure or Faith No More with Kings of Leon imo.

Nah, I think that if MCR are a thing (and they should be), they would be third-down, IMO the same way Foals are. Not making a comparison between the band because honestly I would not know where to start, but I guess that MC already picked their quota of ambiguous headliners with Billie Eilish and Faith No More.

Which is not to say that they do not deserve the spot, don't get me wrong, but compared to 2018's edition (which IMO should always be the comparison's term for Mad Cool), the right to be there for such names is a little bit more left untold if compared to the like of those headliners.

I swear after the initial burst of excitement that MCR have not really been that active in confirming details about their upcoming reunion. Unless a lot of it waiting until after the premiere show of their reformation in LA later this month?

Rumoured for Coachella so Coachella will be one of the first festivals to announce them then they'll hopefully announce more dates

Can't seem to book tickets for mad cool. Won't let me select the number of tickets. Stays at zero. 

Does this mean they are sold out? Or I need to use a different browser?

The first wave of tickets have been sold out more tickets are likely going to be available with the next set of announcements probably in January

Rumour is both RATM and MCR need to be announced for Coachella first, so others can follow after that....RATM with other USA shows, and MCR with EU festivals.

same thoughts here. I almost had forgotten this was even a thing. 

regarding mad cool, it would be an interesting addition to the lineup for sure and I can totally see it happening. can't speak for what I personally expect from the band's performance quality wise, never paid that much attention to them

Tickets aren't sold out, you can get them on festicket and ticketmaster. I suggest ticketmaster, as they charge 5€ less in booking fees.

Tame Impala seems to have a gap in his US tour from 12th June - 17th July, would it be likely he would come over to Europe during this time for festivals like MC, NOS, RW? and if so what's his stock like in Spain, would he be big enough to headline?

Already played MC 2018 and I guess they paid a lot to have them since they only did two european shows that summer. Did not co headline because of PJ wanting to be the sole headliner but they definitely own that status.

 

It would be underwhelming to have them again so soon but if they are repeating bands better be them than Post Malone.

I imagine the new album will be out by the time of MC so the setlist has the chance to change significantly which might be worth having him back? i too would definitely prefer Tame over Post but having seen Post this year at Leeds he wouldn't be the worst booking in the world

New album comes out Valentine's day next year so they would definitely have a different setlist. If RW gets them I reckon they would play mad cool and a few more European fests

I work for Ticketmaster (LN) and we got an email today about an announcement coming this week for a huge Guns’N’Roses show in the summer at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium...any chance they could be at Mad Cool being a Live Nation band? Or are we thinking they’re far too expensive?

Just to got off topic slightly from the guessing games.... spotted today that Peggy Gou, Octo Octa and Nina Kraviz are all in the top 10 DJs of the year according to Mixmag. All three will be at Mad Cool next year.

It's fair to say I'll be spending some time in the Loop :dance:

Would that be the first concert in this stadium?

I would assume so, they need to make their money back somehow so I reckon they’ll announce a few more shows at the stadium, not sure what date the GNR show is but it’s getting announced 13th December

Don't think they fit in.

They are still really expensive, tough terms (in 2018 they asked for a 3 hour set and no clashes) and already toured Europe in 2017 and 2018 so no big enticement.

You’re probably correct but nice to dream. I’d be pretty pleased if they get announced. Can’t see it mind you

Peggy Gou and Nina Kraviz are must anyway, and they will probably close the stage, so not much of a hassle with the clashing!
