  1. Hey everyone! I´ve been reading this forum for the past 6 years (thank you all for all the info/conversation) but this is my first post 😅 This morning I went to the Forum to have a look at how the festival is building up, got a couple of pics! The new exit in Mordor is huge, at first I thought it was the old seating space but it connects perfectly with the street and the map confirms it. Hope that we all have a blast this year!

  9. This time next week we will be walking through this gates under a baking spanish sun for the first time in at least 3 years and watching an incredible array of world class acts - and with the Mediterranean as a background and among a super peaceful and music loving crowd. Amazing times ahead!

  11. On my way back from Wide Awake festival so thought I’d post a little review… Doors were at 2pm, but seeing as we won tickets the day before and had some prior work commitments, we couldn’t arrive until later, so were aiming to get there for 5.30 and watch Sofia Kourtesis. My pal and his Uber driver had other ideas. No drama, I was sat in the sun with a pint ready to embark on the first festival of 2022. Eventually get into the festival an hour later than planned and watched 45 mins of Call Super. Great DJ, tune selection was ace and mixing was tight, only downside was a small crowd and fairly low volume. We then went to the main stage for Caribou. Despite being 10 metres inside the sound desk we could barely hear a thing. I know it’s a city centre festival but this was the worst sound I’ve ever experienced at a festival. Stayed for 30 mins then cut our losses, went to grab a drink and a good spot for Overmono (live). This is where it kicked up a notch. Fuck me, these boys at good. Like really really fucking good. I don’t know who is on your Glasto hit list, but Overmono need to go to the top. Do not miss them!! You have been warned. We then went back to the main stage for Bicep. I saw them at Brixton in September and the set is almost identical, albeit with beefed up visuals. Anyone seeing them at Glasto will end the weekend on a high, really joyous set. My only gripe, is that they went off for 5 mins before coming back on for an “encore” of Glue and Apricots. The gap killed the momentum and meant the last 2 tunes fell a little flat. Just don’t think there’s a need for an “encore” in electronic sets like this. But overall was a great day in the sun, with some top electronic music. Hope everybody else who went had fun.

  14. I've updated my Clashfinder with all the latest changes found on the official website: https://clashfinder.com/s/primaverasoundoldstagenames/ Keep in mind this is a somewhat niche clashfinder as I've elected to keep the old stage names in place (Pitchfork, Adidas, Beach Club, etc). Because, you know, Ray-Ban will always be Ray-Ban. For a modern clashfinder, check the core one: https://clashfinder.com/s/ps2022/ Note: some stuff still doesn't feel right on the official website, such as King Gizzard only playing for 45mn at the Apolo, followed by a 45-mn gap before Les Savy Fav. Also, Las Ligas Minores is still showing on the official tables, despite the cancellation having been announced on the band's social media. To stay on the safe side, I've let them on, as well as Girl in Red (with a question mark next to it).

  15. I replied with this: Hi Christopher, Thanks for the reply. I don't know who you are. I don't know what the delay is. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you give me my coach times now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you. I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you..........and I will kill you.

  19. You got me mate.. I’m from Indonesia, and any act missing from the lineup is a big loss for my wife and I. The chance to watch most of the artist in the festival is probably once in a lifetime experience for us.

  22. I never really buy into the argument, "oh his/her voice has gone". For me it's always about the original person singing his/her original songs, watching a legend deliver a performance to the best of their ability, knowing that you might never have that chance to see that person again. Sure, his voice might not be as strong as it was when he was 30, but that's just one fraction of the whole event. The atmosphere, the chat between songs, the singalongs, the fact that you're watching someone who has brought so much joy to the world through their music. If you want pitch perfect songs - of any performer - then go listen to a CD on surround sound. And I'm not even a Beatles fan really. Other singers don't necessarily sound great live compared to their studio cuts. Paul McCartney will be great, just like Dolly and Barry Gibb were, and Diana Ross will be on Sunday afternoon.

  23. Isn't part of why we love Glastonbury that there's *nowhere* like Glastonbury? And the flags are a massive part of the festival and, essentially, no other. Long May they continue. As for regulating how close they go, I don't want any 'unnecessary' regulations in Paradise. Ben

  24. Sorry but that's on you. It's a phenomenal lineup, and with all due respect one act dropping and a rearrangement of VIP is a drop in the ocean compared to all the awesomeness that awaits. I've been in 6-7 different festivals worldwide and Primavera smokes them all, both lineup and organization-wise. They could cancel 3 more headliners and it would still be the best festival in the world. Some people are just completely losing proportions. I mean, the communication/online organization might be a mess, but on site so far it was flawless every time I've been there. Had nothing but positive experiences.

  25. 11AM, sunny morning, three years after the fucking COVID and the field bouncing with this. What a way to start Glasto 2022.

  26. I replied with this: Hi Christopher, Thanks for the reply. Are you aware it’s now 29 days until the festival? so the ‘approximately circa 30 days prior’ point has now passed! I think there a lot of fellow festival goers who are also booked on your coaches that would like to know our departure times sooner rather than later. See Tickets should put out a tweet or email if the advertised date for times isn’t going to be met. Thanks

  31. Norwegian here going to Barcelona for week 2 of the festival, really looking forward to my ninth Primavera Sound since 2011. Only missed the Radiohead-edition (2016?). The one thing I really hope for, as I do every year, is that the beer serving at the bars will be more efficient. I know that its not easy and that the staff is mostly untrained volunteers, but its the most inefficient and frustrating part of an otherwise (almost) perfect music festival. This forum has been my go to-site for information regarding the festival btw. I have not participated here, but thanks for all the great discussions, information about the festival and rumours about artists over the years!

  33. Very pessimistic in this thread. All this doom posting has got me feeling down this morning. I'm gonna avoid this thread for a while. Some of us have waited three years for this and are understandably hyped without speculating on capacity stuff/VIP locations when none of us have stepped on the festival grounds yet. Have a great festival everyone and feel free to continue to drop me a DM for the Primavera WhatsApp group invite.

  34. Here's Blutarsky's Daily Digest. Really enjoy doing a daily check and picking 4/5 highlights of activity. Ground works going on just south of the Woods - there's been something going on around this area for a week or more now, but it's been obscured by trees. This is the first time it's been possible to see anything properly in that area: Kit for the Pyramid mixing desk has been put out: Back of Pyramid field urinals being set up: Skips being delivered for market areas. This is WG field: I think this is now 4 caravans in Greenpeace field: Van at the Spike: Fencing crew hard at it:

  35. You should have had an email by now and it's been answered many times here: "We will still give out a wristband because we know that everyone loves to have one, but its value will be symbolic." So yeah, but they're not to actually get in. Stuff: summer clothes, undies and socks, jacket/hoodie for night, hat, shades, small backpacks, flasks for smuggling, eye masks and earplugs for plane/hotel, face masks if needed anywhere, books for travel/downtime Consumables: Sun spray / aftersun, small sun CREAM for taking in (can't take spray), hand sanitiser, small tissue pack, compeed plasters, cheap toothbrush, travel bathroom supplies Buy in Spain: Booze, snacks, paracetamol, 330ml water bottles hide caps, cigarettes, extra curricular substances optional There's my list if it helps!

  38. I contacted the festival a few weeks back regarding the changes in Rivermead/Pylon with the staff camping. Just got a reply with the following: So it looks like the path/bridge into Silver Hayes via Rivermead will remain as before.

  39. +1 for Elbow here, and Waterboys, Paul Heaton, Billy Bragg, Coldplay, Madness, Suzanne Vega, Fatboy Slim, Florence, Killers, The Cure, Radiohead....I could go on. All played multiple times, all put on a fantastic show, and many if not all of them have , over the years, created great festival memories for thousands of people. These sort of acts are part of the fabric of what Glastonbury is. Personally, I can’t see Doja Cat ever fitting in to that category, but fresh big acts like her are also part of Glastonbury DNA. It’s a big enough festival to fit them all in, and all the better for it.

  43. There's so many great bands playing. That even seeing half the bands I'm excited about will be quite the challenge. So I don't give a flying f*** about who's replacing who. The argument that you paid for this amount of bands is just ridiculous... You can only see about 10% (probably not even 10%) of the lineup so what does an extra band mean...? You've got plenty of options. It sucks if it's your favourite band that cancelled, but pretty sure you can sell your ticket if it's not worth the money anymore. It's been a disastrous 2 years for music/festivals/culture/everything related to that... So those organisation deserve some slack for atleast the next year. They probably wokred harder than half of the forum members here the last months/year while going bankrupt or losing jobs was just around the corner.

  44. Hard agree. I have heard it from a bunch of people who aren't even going. "Nah, his voice has gone." 1. It hasn't 2. So what. He's a fucking BEATLE.

  45. Been taking ours since they were 6 and 10 and no regrets. Did one year without (messy one) and missed having them there. This year they will be 20, 24, we have a family allnighter planned at block 9 if us oldies can manage it 😁 Some of our best shared memories are at the festival. They always rated glasto above Christmas, covered it in topics at school and we are so glad they got to experience the festival from a young age. Youngest has gone on to study global sustainability in further education and we think this is linked to glastonbury opening young eyes. I think its best once they can remember personally, I couldn't handle babies there myself but fair play to those that can. kidz field is amazing for the wee ones.

  46. I've just managed to do the same and get a hospitality ticket - 550+vat? I had given up hope, and would have been first glastonbury I had missed since 2005. TOTALLY worth it to get to go especially after the last 2 dire years!

  47. Tents left at festivals have a huge environmental impact. I've posted an article below that goes into it in more detail, there will also be plenty of signposts and videos at the festival that encourage you to take them home too https://theconversation.com/the-environmental-cost-of-abandoning-your-tent-at-a-music-festival-120198
