  1. I did contemplate that route myself! Im sure there was an early morning flight from Barca that gave you like a 10 hour layover in Lisbon, more than enough time to have a mooch in the city. I was starting to get worried about the trip to be honest, as when i last looked at direct flights i was getting prices of around £300, which would have sadly ended my hopes of going. Cant wait to go now, been wanting to go for years but never managed it 🙂
  2. Just booked my flights - direct return for £170. Just a heads up in case anyone else was having trouble, i noticed that Skyscanner doesn't bring up Girona or Reus even after selecting "Add nearby airports". Thankfully i had a play around on Ryanair as i had some vouchers for Christmas and noticed direct flights from Rues to Manchester. Return flight is also at 21:35 from Reus, so got a full day of relaxing in the sun before heading home to the inevitable rain. Flights and Accom now sorted - Excitement is starting to rise 🙂
  3. Thought as much. Shame because its one ive wanted to give a go for ages.
  4. Fantastic lineup! Has anybody volunteered with Oxfam for this before and have any idea how many places are available? Its been over 5 years since i volunteered for them, so unfortunately i don't get priority status..
  5. Saves me a trip down to London!
  6. I'd probably prefer that to what we have so far 😬
  7. Looks that way! If they don't announce a few more big names when the poster drops next week it'll surely be the weakest initial lineup ever for Beni 😞
  8. Im hoping none of these are headlining and they're being held back for the poster drop.... Two Door and Kasabian could be joint headliners for one night, i suppose?
  9. Could you post the list in here. Surely theres got to be a few more big names? Vampire weekend, Libertines are Foals were on the last poster.
  10. Seems like wishful thinking more than anything? Green Day would be one hell of a coup for the festival though, and would go down extremely well with me!
  11. Laura Whitmore announcing someone on Monday is extremely strange....
  12. I’ve been them all! Sziget was absolutely fantastic, as you’ve mentioned definitely a greater international fee that beni. Nos alive was great but a nightmare navigating round the site when the bands were on, felt the size was too small for the amount of people, and Mad Cool was just an organisational shambles, vowed never to return! Also both the latter have no camping which is still the main buzz for me at a festival! One thing that’s beni is a clear winner is logistics. The festival runs smoothly every year and this is something I’ve started to appreciate more the older I’ve got! Never had any issues with queues, missing bands, bottlenecks in crowd etc. Campsite to main area with a cheap litre of beer in your hand within 10 minutes - pure festival utopia
  13. Yep, tier structures are an absolute joke, they definitely play into peoples fears of festivals selling out soon, only to release another 6 tiers (check out lost village for this) On the subject of overseas attendees and crowd, I’ve definitely noticed the difference since I first went back in 2012, and I’m anticipating an even more notable difference this time round with new owners. My music taste has changed dramatically since back then, so the lineup doesn’t really appeal to me much anymore more, but it’s the only way as a group we can organise and agree on a “group holiday”.
  14. Competition to win one of 25 pairs of tickets https://www.secretgardenparty.com/film/ Seems an unusual high number of tickets to give out? Do feel there's something strange going on. Announcing its sold out all over its website and then having numerous raffles does play into the 'private party' approach they may be going for (as someone else mentioned on here) For all we know they may have not sold even half the full capacity, but little ploys like this definitely help foster an exclusive feel and will only encourage others to try and get their hands on these golden tickets!
  15. From what I can remember though they didn’t even sell out the second tier by then, which was still way down in the list of tiers being offered? From experiencing sell outs when the price was 140 euros I think I was kinda expecting it to be sold out way before the festival was to start.
  16. Right you are! Websites just been updated again General Admission; 40 euros VIP: 80 euros Camping; 25 euros
  17. Good spot on the new website, just noticed that if you click on 'lineup' they have a date of the 25th October, whereas the 'ticket' page says 10th November! Which means we're getting the lineup on Monday!!!
  18. Could be! It didnt sell out for 2020 though i dont think, so there's potential for them to change it up this time round. I was pretty happy with the Beni lineup in 2020 considering it was only 40 euros, mind you. However saying that i'd take an increase in ticket price if it correlated into a few more stand-out, big-name bands that used to be common place back 5 or so years ago - Killers, Blur, QOTSA, New Order, Florence & The Machine ect. With tickets on sale 3 weeks tomorrow when are we expecting the line-up to drop? Week before? Day before?
  19. Are we expecting another cheap ticket price? Ive always assumed they returned the money (or at-least they said they did) because that was just a first year introductory offer which wouldn't be made again? Im half expecting 100 euros a ticket this time round, which is still considerably cheaper than what the UK offers.
  20. Surely they don't have a strong enough pull to sell 35k tickets within an hour or so of a 6am sale? Thats whats stumping me. Anyway, yours seems a reasonable proposition to me - heres hoping it comes true!
  21. Becoming more annoyed each day that i was priced out of this due to a lack of payment plan. Just had a look at the website though and noticed this... 1 To register for further ticket releases and ticket returns for SGP ’22, please enter your full name belowThis question is required. * Further ticket releases sounds as if they've got more planned? Must admit i was shocked to see that around 35k tickets sold out within an hour for a sale that started at 6am. Is there any chance they didn't put them all on sale? Would there be any incentive for them to do this? Definitely feels like i'm clutching at straws here 😞
  22. Superbock Superrock - same weekend as Beni - has just announced Foals. They've shared a few acts in the past, and with Foals being on the 2019 lineup, i wouldn't be surprised to see them back! Can anyone else remember what other festivals Beni used to share acts with?
  23. The lack of payment plan crushed my plans. Absolutely gutted because its one i've always wanted to go to! Hoping for some kind of resale in the future but not keeping my hopes up 😞
