    Capacity of Each Stage?

    I've mentioned this before but I'm sure the entrance to the Park area says it has a capacity of 10000 - suspect that's the whole area though and not just the stage as it'd be difficult to squeeze that many I at the Park stage
  2. The newly added competition to win TRNSMT Festival tickets seems to be missing the usual competition form. Unless this one is to be emailed in (though there's no mention of the address to use that I could see). I tried from both mobile and desktop versions of the site.

    Has anyone been to Primavera sound?

    I've been to Barcelona a few times and absolutely love it, but I was once a victim - had my credit card swiped - in the departure lounge of the airport of all places!

    Has anyone been to Primavera sound?

    Can't speak for Porto, but there are definitely hotels pretty much right next to the site for Barcelona (though I believe they can get quite pricey). As for the travel between day and night areas- the main festival site hosts the majority of the acts and there are acts on stages there until, I think, 6am. However, there are also additional acts that are on throughout a handful of venues in the town both in the run up to and during the festival itself - some during the day in a park, some through the night in clubs/theatres, but most of the acts will be appearing on the main festival site. It's a great festival, and with them having decent sized acts on until 6am and the two biggest stages facing each other (with a big expanse between them and acts staggered on the two stages) you'll probably find clashes are not as common as in most festivals.

    Cineramageddon, opinions and photos?

    Loved the work that had gone in to the old cars, they looked great. Beer bus was a bit of a disappointment as I was hoping we were going to have a nice craft beer place nearby (we were camped in Baileys), but it turned out to be a bit of a misnomer as I think it only sold one variety of beer - a few cocktails though if I remember right

    LCD Soundsystem....

    Just came back to say thanks and to give an upvote - managed to book tickets for the second night straight after your reply! Was an absolutely great way to start Glasto. Can't wait for September now.

    New security measures in place

    Shit, I better add my face to my packing list so I don't forget it again.

    Radio listening habits

    I'm pretty much tuned in to 6Music all the time, though I have to say I find I don't enjoy the run on Sundays as much as the rest of the programming. Also, totally agree with those who don't enjoy Lammo's show. I'd love Tom Racenscroft to be given the drive time slot permanently, it's much better when he's been sitting in.

    RY X

    Holy crap, check the stats for his Spotify Popular list! I'm guessing Berlin featured in some TV series or film?

    Your firsts for Glasto 2017

    It's only my second time, so way behind most of you lot, but- 1. - see an act on The Glade - there were plenty of acts there I was keen on last time (2015), but it either lost out in clashes, or I was just the other side of the site, having a blast. This year, I'll be watching The Beat's set. 2. - seeing Radiohead. 3. - (possibly) Skipping a headliner - my mates are going to be watching Foos. I don't hate Foos, so, depending on mood, I may hang around after The National, but, I suspect I'm going to swerve all the headliners and head to the SE corner early on Saturday night - there's plenty there I'm keen to see.
  13. Christ, another one to add to the 'maybe' list on Clashfinder...
