I've recently turned to wondering just what kind of a set MP might play at Roadburn. Last year's schedule indicates bands get no longer than 1hr 15mins per set. Some bands, like God Speed You and Earthless will be performing more than one set, so even though MP won't be getting that privilege, they might yet be given one double slot.
If, however, they do only get to play a 1hr 15min set, what would they play? And how might they tailor it to a Roadburn audience?
I'd like to think that they'll aim to make that 75mins a total space jam. I could easily imagine a setlist comprising K9, The Wheel, Mountain and Plan #1. Or is that just my wishful thinking
Any thoughts?March 6, 2018 at 12:44 #32490Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
Clearly wishful thinking. You can count yourself lucky if you get one of Un Chien, Wheel or Mountain in one set. Two of them already happened, but very seldom.
On the other hand Plan #1 is quite regular – I personally could do without it by now, but there you go…March 6, 2018 at 15:18 #32491pfnueselParticipant
My gut feeling says K9 is way more regular than Plan #1.March 6, 2018 at 15:28 #32492
@ Johnny – Aha! This is where my lack of experience gives way to your more extensive knowledge. My main intention here is just to speculate on the type of set it might be. The tracks were simply ones I thought might make up a 75 min setlist for such an event. I could just have easily suggested K9, The Tower, Demon Box and Lacuna/Sunrise … or K9, HBM and Taifun. My hope is for a space jam type of set, but who knows. This is just speculation for fun.March 6, 2018 at 16:15 #32493supernautParticipant
What do they choose to play for a mixed crowd not so familar with them? Maybe a lot off The Tower and a couple of new jams and one or two boogie oldies like Neverland or Vanishing Point for fun. And open with All Is Loneliness and close with Taifun.March 6, 2018 at 17:02 #32494Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
@ pfnuesel: You're almost right – setlist fm lists 194 Chiens and 177 Plans. And yet you cannot be sure to expect a K9 every second gig. And how could they play K9 to death? Lots of variations over the years…
@ supernaut: for comparison look at festival setlists from Herzberg Festival 2008, 11 and 15 or Freak Valley 2014 – always a good mix of some recent stuff with one or two oldies and lots of jamming, sometimes the odd cover mixed in, mostly Into The Sun.March 6, 2018 at 17:10 #32495
Interesting stats and info there. Now I'm just waiting to wake up tomorrow to read tonight's setlist! And to see if Kristoffer joined them.March 15, 2018 at 15:30 #32496
MP scheduled on Roadburns mainstage 15:10 – 17:10 (two hours!!), Friday 20th AprilMarch 15, 2018 at 15:48 #32497TomcatParticipant
Damn, that's early!March 15, 2018 at 16:15 #32498
That is early!. I hope you can make it Tomcat (and everyone else who was planning on coming along). But the best news is … a proper two hour slot – not the 1 hr 10-15 mins everyone got last year!March 15, 2018 at 16:59 #32499pfnueselParticipant
I don't mind that they are playing that early. I can get drunk at any time of the day. However, 2 hours just doesn't cut it for me. I know, it's relatively generous. But even a 3 hours set feels too short, so I won't settle for 2 hours only.March 15, 2018 at 19:37 #32500
As I've only seen them twice, I'll take two hours any time. But I also have a ticket to see them two days earlier in Alkmaar, which should be longer.March 19, 2018 at 08:04 #32501
If I remember correctly, I once read in an article that the bands at Roadburn sorta get to choose the length of their time slot? Think the band has then picked the maximum allowed slot of 2 hours =p
15:00 is a bit early tho, but luckily I don't have to travel that far!March 19, 2018 at 08:54 #32502nicootParticipant
Would've been worse it it were 15h10 on Thursday, the first day. OK, it's early, but it's the second day. Everyone's there by then already, no? 2 years ago Cult of Luna opened the festival on Thursday as the very first band. Somewhere along the highway in its entirety. That was rough! Luckily they've torn down the walls of 013.April 18, 2018 at 08:36 #32503BlashyrkhParticipant
Are there a lot here that are going to Roadburn?
