    I've heard 'This competition shit is getting on my wick' will be doing two gigs in the auditori and 'Just announce it you twats' are doing a secret set by the beach.

    To me it's an unbelievably strong lineup. And doesn't even reference the incredible LCD show in Barts - was mindblowing to have that as a freebie *before* the Wednesday warm up night. Also I had forgotten to include Andy Shauf and Lubomyr Melnik in thh auditori - both moving starts to the first two nights. Also doesn't include the Avalanches, though admittedly they were a bit rubbish. Fond memories.. ps agree on the ATP stage, though in its original glorious setting (the amphitheatre) it's been gone for, what, 5 years now?

    There's a simple solution. Looking at the names on twitter... ...Sabrina, LP records, the other 8 invitees - sure one of you will have stumbled on this forum. Post some of the names on here anonymously and no one will ever know it was you. It's not disloyalty - it now sells out every year anyway and if anything you're helping to spread the hype...

    It was an isolated comment and not in response to anything. Got the impression it wasn't one of the 10 prizewinners.

    From the official site forum. Don't see any reason to just make it up but I suppose they could have had misinformation.

    No Beck apparently - rats.

    That's not true! They showed it in the main eating area on a small screen.

    Mad Cool is nowhere near even the weakest PV lineup of the last 7 years. Crap like Snow Control doesn't help, less diversity as JtH said and a relatively weak undercard. Madrid is also far too hot that time of year and the fest has had organisational problems, by all accounts. The new site looks pretty charmless too. For all that, undoubtedly a big improvement on last year with some good acts and it will surely cannibalise Primavera's potential audience

    Gutted about Byrne

    I had mixed feelings about Unexpected Primavera. Arcade Fire secret show one of the highlights of the 3 days (as were some of the tiny gigs from Pond, Algiers etc) but it added an unnecessary element of stress to know that you might be missing something you really wanted to see unless you were glued to your bloody phone.

    Nah, you're wrong. Someone will leak it or at least leak the headliners. 10 random people with a secret and access to social media. Obviously it will leak.
