Fans of Massive Attack remained Friday night at the Madrid Mad Cool Festival at a reasonable price. The British triphopband stood as a headliner scheduled in the same time slot as the band Franz Ferdinand, which is at a different stage occurred. According to the organization found Massive Attack the sound coming from that other stage so disturbing, that the band decided to take the action to cancel.
The set of Franz Ferdinand lasted from 1h30 to 2u50, while Massive Attack from 1h45 to 3h was programmed. The festival organiser said afterwards on Twitter that “she has done everything to the schedules of other bands to fit”, and that Massive Attack “the unilateral decision made not to act”.
The frontman of Franz frontman, Alex Kapranos, replied with a weeping emoji in the tweet.
