Of those, it was kinda doubtful that he'd even turn up (Frank Ocean) and only Radiohead really delivered what was indirectly promised. Both Ocean and The Prodigy flopped.
Not going next year, even if it's kinda luxurious to have this kind of festival in my back yard.
Didt Ocean only flop in the eyes of ppl that didt know what they sign up for? And your reveiw of Prodigy is the only bad one I have seen
Frank Ocean basically flopped in the eyes of everyone – even Soundvenue who are normally all the way up in his ass and are gushing with excitement with every odd fart he lets out.
I wasn't the only one disliking The Prodigy. Aarhus Stiftstidende's writer dished out a 1/6 score, citing that they were completely on auto pilot. I was so bored that if it hadn't been so loud, I might have fallen asleep. The Chemical Brothers and Underworld in the NS-programmes in the years before 2017 were both so much ahead of The Prodigy in terms of their live presence and performance.
They're a band whose sound lives mostly in Liam Howlett's hardware and is thus, ultimately, a lacklustre live experience, only slightly embellished by Keith Flint and Maxim as seemingly untirable Duracell bunny hypemen. Their two live members on drums and guitars were mostly barely audible in the mix, exuding the clear impression that they were on stage for sights and show only.
