  1. Primavera 2018

    I wonder is there any possibility of The Smiths getting back together and playing Primavera? That would certainly appeal to a lot of people. As much as the current names being tipped to play don't overly appeal to me, for some reason I have a feeling they are going to pull a surprise out of nowhere.. https://pitchfork.com/news/the-smiths-andy-rourke-and-mike-joyce-are-up-to-something/
  2. Electric Picnic 2018

    I think if QOTSA play they will headline the main stage, I'd say they are a strong possibility. Would love to see Depeche Mode. Kendrick Lamar possibly if he is playing festivals towards the end of the summer? Although there is not a chance we will get three headliners who are as popular as the three of those acts mentioned, one of that size maximum and then probably two smaller.
  3. Primavera 2018

    I think people tweeting to his personal account is a bit over the top but can certainly see the frustration alright. For me personally the chances of going have decreased the longer we have been waiting as flights and accommodation are getting more expensive as you said. I also think the teaser video was a failure in hindsight, it would need to be a hell of a lineup with lot's of surprises to make anyone react that way and you would think the more festivals that get announced prior to Primavera, the less surprises there will be on the lineup. Unless you live in Spain, booking your tickets and flights etc before the lineup is announced is a major risk considering the money involved. The line up will be good but is it justifiable spending €600(ish) on flights, tickets, accomm when you don't know who is playing?
  4. Primavera 2018

    Chromatics are appearing on a lot of these fake posters - have we any reason to expect they will be there? As far as I can see they do not have any tour dates for 2018. Also, does anyone know what the final ticket price will be once the lineup is announced? The above lineup would be great but too many acts I can't see appearing on it.
  5. Primavera 2018

    Can't help but feel that the list of acts 'ruled out' is a lot better than the list of acts 'strongly rumoured' but maybe that is just my preference. I am really hoping we get at least a date for the announcement this week, the past few weeks have been like foreplay and I don't know how much more I can take...
  6. Primavera 2018

    Nobody on that Governors Ball lineup that I will miss too much, would have liked to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Chrvches but won't cry about it if both don't make Primavera. There are a good few on the Coachella line up that I'd love to see play. Jamiroquai, HAIM, Soulwax, Jean Michel Jarre, Chic, Chromeo, Sigrid would all be welcome additions outside of the normal names thrown around. I was convinced we would get a surprise hence the delay in the announcement but not so sure now, stumped as to who it would be anyway. How long are we thinking before it's announced? I'm thinking by next Friday there will have been an announcement.
  7. Primavera 2018

    I wouldn't read into their reactions too much either. After being flown over to Barcelona and then having their reactions recorded on camera, I'd most of them felt as if they had to have an over the top reaction. No way would 10 people all react like that to a festival line up announcement otherwise. Primavera are trusting them a lot to not leak the line up if they aren't announcing it for another 3 or 4 weeks, I would have assumed that they would show them the lineup only marginally before it was released to the public, but if they don't announce it tomorrow or Thursday we will be waiting another few weeks. So far I am personally not in awe of any of the names who are likely to be at the festival, so the lineup is what will decide whether I travel over to it or not. I would think that they have some wild card up their sleeve, it would seem very predictable if it was just Nick Cave, The National & Bjork headlining. Who will the surprise be though? Jack White? Kendrick Lamar? Maybe Coachella will have the same surprise and they are waiting on Coachella to announce before they are allowed.
  8. Primavera Sound 2017

    First time at the festival and thought it was absolutely brilliant. Thursday for me looked like this: Jackmaster - this made for an unbelievable first impression of Primavera. Scorching heat and disco thumping out over the speakers while drinking pints of desperados, set the tone for the weekend really. Alexis Taylor - Another very enjoyable set, had to sprint back from the bar/toilets on more than one occasion. Moscoman - Thought he was okay, played a lot of cool electronic music with middle eastern vocals. Youandewan - Disappointing for me and thought he would be a lot better. Glass Animals - Good tunes and good crowd but thought the sound could have been better (although this is the 2nd time I've seen them and thought that). Bon Iver - Class. Was not high up my list but was very impressed at how good he sounded. Will have to dig deeper into his music now. SURVIVE - I enjoyed them but most others I was with didn't, set never really went up or down, disappointed they played no Stranger Things tracks. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Not into them but sounded okay, flaked out up on the hill overlooking the stage. Friday: Autarkic - Thought he was similar to Moscoman the day before, sitting down dance music. Lord of the Isles - Played some really nice tunes and got me more in the mood for the day ahead. Sampha - Better than expected, such a good voice and played to a packed Ray Ban crowd. Mac Demarco - Possible highlight. Sounded great live and the man is a top class performer. Loved his antics on stage (burning his arse hairs, stripping down to his jocks and going crowd surfing). The XX - Good but expected more from them, maybe they played too much off the new album but felt they weren't quite a flake out and relax band nor were they upbeat enough to keep the crowd moving. Run the Jewels - Not a fan at all but they are good performers. Fairly whacked at this point mind you. Jamie XX - Played enjoyable tunes and had fun dancing but the stage was too big for just a DJ set. Loved when he played Daphni. Flying Lotus - Again not my kind of music but he was visually impressive, Ray Ban stage was rammed at this point. Talaboman - Listened from a distance and sounded okay but left about half way through. Saturday (started much later than previous two days): Metronomy - Really liked their music and would go and see them again, felt the crowd was a bit flat though. Grace Jones - Really enjoyable, saw her before and wasn't impressed but she sounded and looked great. Arcade Fire - From here for the remaining hours were a big highlight for me, heard most of the songs I wanted to hear and they sounded very good I thought, felt sound was better from Mango stage than Heineken? Left about 15 mins before the end. John Talabot Disco Set - Memory is blurry at this point but I remember dancing and smiling a lot. Hearing Everybody Dance & Spacer was unreal and really felt like this set was a good finish to the weekend. Khidja & DJ Dustin - If I said I could remember anything I would be lying. Talked a lot of shite to a lot of people, danced and smiled before the music ending to the sun just about rising. Amazing festival and I will be back again.
  9. Primavera Sound 2017

    Bags are packed, getting very excited, flying out early in the morning. I wonder what will happen with the "unexpected primavera" tab on the app, I was thinking Jamie XX might be announced for the Saturday night gap on Ray Ban but now it's back to guessing. Seems a bit late to be announcing a secret show for tomorrow/Wednesday night, there must be someone playing during that 3 hour gap on the Saturday night..
  10. Primavera Sound 2017

    So is there still something to be announced on the "Unexpected Primavera" tab on the website? All the announcements today are confusing me.
  11. Primavera Sound 2017

    Arcade Fire played a secret show in Montreal over the weekend to a crowd of around 50 people and debuted 6 new songs. Probably means new album is imminent. Would love if they played one of the surprise shows building up to the festival and it would make a lot of sense.
  12. Primavera Sound 2017

    Thursday: Jackmaster > Youandewan > Glass Animals > Bon Iver > SURVIVE > Fatima Yamaha > Henrik Schwarz/Tycho > Bicep Friday: Mac Demarco > Frank Ocean > The XX > Front 242 > Tuff City Kids Saturday: Lauer > Pond > Van Morrisson > Metronomy > Grace Jones > Arcade Fire > !!! Lots of others I'd like to see but due to clashes I won't get to. Friday is definitely the barest day for me.
  13. Primavera Sound 2017

    Are Cigarettes After Sex playing at the festival any of the days? Or just on the Tuesday in the city? Disappointing if they're not on during the 3 days of the festival!
  14. Primavera Sound 2017

    Very happy with the timetable, not too many bad clashes for me bar maybe one or two. On Friday I'll probably spend most of my time up around the two main stages whereas on Thursday I'll barely be down that direction. Thursday will be a long day! So much on I want to see from start to finish.
  15. Primavera Sound 2017

    Some really great acts on those stages across the weekend, it will be hard for me to get away from there on the Thursday! Question for anyone who went last year, was the beach stage busy early in the day? It opens from 12.00pm but there doesn't seem to be much else on around the festival at that time. A lot of good DJs played very early in the day last year, I can't imagine many people hanging around from midday until 6am...
