Monday 7 August / Mainstage
23:15 – 00:45
“You’d better start to move your feet, to the rockinest rock-steady beat of Madness …. One step beyond!”. Time and again upon hearing this line people go crazy to the sounds of ‘One step beyond’, one of the many hit singles Madness had in the late 70s and early 80s. ‘My Girl’, ‘Baggy trousers’, ‘Embarrassment’, ‘It must be love’, ‘House of fun’, ‘Cardiac arrest’, ‘Our house’, ‘Michael Caine’ ….these are song you never grow tired of. And how about their live performances? Young or old, long haired or skinhead, head banger or raver, no one can resist the catchy rhythms of ‘Nightboat to Cairo’ or ‘The Prince’. And just so you know, that last song is dedicated to the legendary Prince Buster, who played at the LF in 2007. Prince Buster was one of the big names that passed away in 2016 and the guys from Madness are just itching to climb that same stage at Lokeren on Monday 7 August. They will blow you away with their heavy heavy monster sound, the nuttiest sound around!
