  1. This already happened with the 2021 poster. There's no way they go bigger than that. I mean, that Saturday is bigger than sll of the 2017 headliners (w/o Frank)
  2. IIRC Belgium just passed a bill that granted funds to these type of events from ¿August? in case they can't be held -which I think will be the case of Lowlands-. Anyway, there's nothing similar to that bill here in Spain. I don't know when we will see the first 60k cap event but September in Spain seemed impossible. 2000 people in November seems easier.
  3. @xxialac Well you were also convinced they were going ahead with the festival this September 😄 Re: Weekender at Benidorm: the reason why most of us who went came back saying it was incredible/one of the best weekends ever/whatever is very much linked with the venue itself, so I'd say there's no chance of a second edition under the same moniker if the place isn't available/secured. Also, getting a ticket is going to be worse than Glastonbury so it'll be fun.
  4. In Spanish is even worse cause it sounds like a threat lol And again, we're probably reading too much into it, but I think it's okay if we do this today.
  5. I always try to be one of the voices of reason on these threads, even the pessimistic one. But: 1) Not only have they announced the Porto dates, they have added a fourth day: Sunday. This only happened on 2012 and there were just two concerts (Jeff Mangum and Olivia Tremor Control), but Porto is getting bigger than previous years. 2) If you usually check the Werchter thread, especially what Ken19 says, you already know there are some high level bands whose contracts are not that easy to end and it's easier for festivals to roll their booking to their next edition. Primavera saved most of their 2020 headliners and added a new pack for 2021, and there's always this idea that at least a couple of bands are booked like a year in advance, so one might think that they could have a problem with... too many headliners. 3) Gabi and co didn't announce the Barcelona dates. Not the first time this happened with the very first announcement, tho. 4) The fucking double thing on the announcement And probably they just rearranged the Porto schedule to free up some slots on the main festival and moved a couple of bands to the Sunday plus some headliners from Barcelona 2020 are not playing on 2022 so they have no issue with a lot of bands playing and the double thing on the announcement is just some encouraging words. But what if they are pulling an Austin City Limits? Two festivals on two consecutive weekends, 80% of the bands playing on both and different ¿headliners? each one. I can't either see 65k people each weekend tbh, so this is likely a pipe dream but they were selling so good in 2020 and sold out 2021 almost instantly (?) so I don't fucking know anymore.
  6. I have little to zero idea of the UK politics' idyosincracy and how the vaccine rollout is being deployed but this announcement gives me an inmense 'April-June 2020' deja vu. Does anyone know if Steps 3 and 4 contemplate any social distancing measures?
  7. They moved from June to August by the end of March, a period of time in which most of us believed this would be over by the end of summer.
  8. I'm really glad they keep putting on shows cause it proves they are working in several things aside the big festival but they're just seven (7) shows in a regular week. There are like 10 or 20 shows per month in Madrid or Barcelona so this is great but no further prove of anything towards mass gatherings I'm afraid.
  9. Back in December, PM said the aim was to have 15-20 million people vaccinated in Spain by the end of May. I don't know if we'll get to that number or not but there have been issues with the distribution so far. Based on how things are developing here I'm pretty sure that by September will turn into from September
  10. Mobile World Congress goes ahead halving its capacity and being a "touchless" event. Very similar to what we can expect at a festival, so great news. Meanwhile, a totally unrelated event like Hellfest has been cancelled. https://www.ouest-france.fr/pays-de-la-loire/nantes-44000/entretien-hellfest-ben-barbaud-confirme-que-le-hellfest-2021-n-aura-pas-lieu-7159602
  11. Unsurprisingly OG leaker (don't want to get angry) now says nothing tomorrow but first week of March. Once again, this means nothing.
  12. Say there is no option to gather 65k people without masks or social distancing in 2021, announce the possibility to transfer your 2020 ticket to 2022/refund your ticket and tease new events for this year in compliance with the restrictions regarding capacity: Nits del Forum Expanded/Primavera Weekender/whatever.
  13. That Reddit user is taking the info from a guy from another forum known for his absurd, no-funny-at-all humor sense, so take it with a pinch of salt because he may be trolling. Gabi and him have colaborated in the past but I find it weird that he's building hype for another postponement given the current state of things. Wouldn't be surprised if they announced something tomorrow tbqf, but I really really hope they have the guts to face the situation and not another hey guys we're trying this thing again!
  14. That's a good one, but I think they have even worse mobile network than Primavera at Parc del Forum I'd be surprised to find people hugging each other and shouting out loud at MWC but you never know nowadays.
  15. There is absolutely zero chance of this happening as Primavera Sound under the current direction of the festival. The 20th edition will be a full-sized event or won't be, which does not mean there won't be another Nits del Forum/Primavera Weekender/some new iteration.
  16. I'm very confident too about Primavera not happening this year but you seem to avoid what I say 😞
  17. If they announce anything related to the 2021 edition of the festival going ahead... man, that'd be a hell of a leap of faith.
  18. They'll throw the outdoor gigs they put on this past summer, maybe with some improvements -higher capacity- and maybe even with some international bands, but that's it. The sooner they dismiss the idea of a 65k ppl gathering this year, the sooner they can start to develop Primavera Club and Primavera Weekender.
  19. They have to think the festival will take place in September because their (financial) lifes go in it. Even I think some days that I might happen but the current state of things don't look good. And true, they don't have to make a call today with today's events, but governments actually act based on today's trends, so ultimately it doesn't look any good.
  20. I mean, they rebooked for September '20 and June '21. I am absolutely sure they are working towards the new date for 2021. Just can't see it happen as of today.
  21. We all debugged the August dates almost two weeks before they were announced so given that and the evidence from hotels' occupancy on September I'm pretty positive about the new change of dates but, just to be sure, we all know there is not going to be Primavera or any 50k ppl events on 2021, right?
  22. Oh, that's a great place to stay. Glad you got it cheaper than in June.
