Where is the tour then?

Let the record show that I accidentally 'loved' this comment when I actually meant to downvote it as it's a dickish comment.

And, yes, I've tried to change it but it sadly won't let me ūüėě

How is it ‚Äėdickish‚Äô if I call out someone‚Äôs lie?

Bit of a ‚Äėdickish‚Äô piece of cyber bullying from you here Simon¬†

Actually you‚Äôre the bully here. How is expressing ideas of¬†how bands might¬†announce their plans ‚Äúlying‚ÄĚ. At no point did it suggest that was concrete info.¬†This is a discussion thread for such things, we‚Äôre not all in the know.¬†

Peace, please :___ we're here to discuss mad cool!

I think next announcement will be the last one so I think they will take their time. Maybe by the end of the month? Early February?

Tame Impala just announced to be headlining Governor's Ball... 

Also looking at the rest of that lineup, some interesting acts and some that are playing Mad Cool, any others from that poster you'd want to be announced ?

As much as I’d love tame impala I don’t think they’d have a month gap in such a extensive American tour to come over for euro fests. I hope I’m wrong but I think it’s just a break in the tour

I think they'll announce the missing headliners this month (probably next week), and the last one will right before they start sending the wristbands!

So... for headliners we have: The Strokes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arcade Fire, My Chemical Romance, Tame Impala,...?

Only MCR seem to be pretty certain atm (there's been a few infos on them doing Mad Cool and Werchter from reasonably reliable sources). 

The Strokes thing was already debated. If we do get them I expect them to be announced in less than a week. The longer it takes, the less likely.

RHCP are about, though there's been talk they won't do many more dates than what's already been announced. No sign of Arcade Fire being active this summer. Tame Impala have a convenient european-festival-run-shaped hole in their tour but no sings they indeed mean to fill it.

I'd be happy with any two out of those.

Me too, but that's because we purchased the FNAC pack. I meant the wristband of those who purchased the general ticket.

 

What about Pearl Jam??? I've just seen that they're announced for Werchter.

I really am puzzled on this, all the likely names have question marks. As robmongascy already stated Tame Impala are on a US tour then.

Arcade Fire no European dates announced, RHCP not expected to play many dates, MCR rumours but no dates yet and not expected to play an extensive tour and we all know about the Strokes.

It might become a little clearer as other festivals start to announce their headliners and we can see who is active and start to see the patterns in their bookings. I know she is playing Primavera but is Lana Del Ray available? She would be another good headliner. I am not ruling anyone out at the moment unless they are already playing somewhere else at the same time.

I think when they announce the headliners it will be as a pair. I doubt they are in any hurry and as so  much of the line up is already out, they will not feel under pressure to make an announcement.

They are one of the ones I ruled out at BST 10th July¬†‚ėĻÔłŹ

MCR now showing a car in a desert on its twitter. Have they met Josh Homme?

More symbols etc. I am sure some one will work out what it is. Not sure what it means in regard to Mad Cool.

 I have to  be honest, I dont recognise that much from the Governers Ball poster. I like Vampire Weekend but they played last year.

Tame Impala look like they are touring in US. We have Foals

From those I know, I would like Of Monsters and Men & Fontaines D.C

Thinking more left field for the missing headliner/s, any chance of The Weeknd? No idea if hes the sort of thing theyd book tbh

would love for The Weeknd to play, Starboy is one of my favourite albums and his two new singles slap hopefully he at least announces some tour dates over this side of the pond

Any chance we could see a few of the acts from last years ‚Äúpre festival party‚ÄĚ playing? Like The Amazons, DON BROCO, etc? Surely would want to utilise them after only having them as warm up bands last year¬†

Mad Cool's history would suggest they tend to favour Rock/Alternative acts as main headliners and both these would certainly be headliners if signed. Obviously, they have departed from this a little this year but not exactly thrown the idea away with Killers, KOL, Faith.

I have been surprised that there has not been more talk around the likes of Weeknd, Travis, Kendrick etc or other big Rap/R&B/Urban acts but they are not the names that instantly spring to my mind when I think of Mad Cool headliners. So playing the odds game the big rock acts being discussed seem to fit the Mad Cool profile.

My thoughts are we will get another rock and indie/alternative act as Friday headliners. Although, I am rubbish at predictions and with modern festival bookings anything is possible. Out of the two Eminem might fit better. I am curious as to who we will get but not overly going to be put out if its not my cup of tea.
