I'm not going crazy since I'm probably not going. I really don't like too crowded places and don't feel like waiting all day, trying to get closer to the stage, to see 1 band. I would've gone crazy if they announced a show, but I hate festivals

I'm going too! Definetely going to order my ticket this saterday.
I'm only going one day, just the day Coldplay comes.

I hope there's other good bands coming that day, it makes the wait a lot more fun.
We got lucky 2 years ago. Spend the entire day front line waiting, but good bands to listen to. Had a lot of fun!

I was really close to the stage last time they played. Saw Elbow, Bloc Party and The Killers before them, so the waiting didn't bother me too much. Really great atmosphere and not too crowded in the front. I do think the rest of the festival has become way too crowded the last couple of years. Same goes for Pukkelpop.

I do have to say that I thought all their festival gigs in Belgium so far have been better than their arena shows.
