Massive Attack cancel Mad Cool Festival performance over sound bleed issues : Dancing Astronaut

UK electronic vets Massive Attack were slated to perform at Madrid’s Mad Cool Festival, though Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall never wound up taking the stage, reportedly cancelling their set due to sound overlap issues with Franz Ferdinand. The Scottish indie rockers’ set was audible from The Loop stage, and despite festival organizers’ best efforts to quell the situation, the Mezzanine duo ultimately decided to scrap their scheduled performance. A statement from Mad Cool reads,

“Massive Attack has just canceled its Mad Cool Festival concert, scheduled to be held at The Loop, claiming that the sound of the stage where Franz Ferdinand was playing at the time would bother them during the performance of their show. The organizational team did everything possible to delay schedules of other bands and find a time slot where Massive Attack might be comfortable, but the unilateral decision of the band has been canceling their show. From Mad Cool, we sincerely apologize to all attendees for the inconvenience and possible heartbreak this may have caused.”

The trouble is, it reportedly took hours for the festival to report the cancellation to fans, many of which travelled to see Massive Attack, were understandably upset by the situation and the lack of communication from the festival.

Mad Cool Festival has already experienced a pretty tumultuous start to the weekend, with attendees flooding social media with reports of unmanageable lines, inadequate weather preparation, lack of crowd control, and more.

Coupled with Massive Attack’s cancellation, festival goers in Madrid are understandably frustrated by the weekend’s turnout thus far. Massive bummer, though not without with a silver lining — it sounds like at least Franz Ferdinand got to rock their socks off.
