  1. BST Hyde Park do that but APE don't from previous experience. Not sure if that's changed this year.
  2. Was interesting that during every break between acts they had 90s hip hop playing. Would love if there was an extra stage that crossed over well. Maybe a few hardcore hip hop acts next year? Maybe like Ho99o9, Flatbush Zombies or City Morgue... Amount of Malevolence tees I saw there I can see them playing a proper slot next year lol. Code Orange is a shout. Yeah saw all of those. Was amazed by the incredible voice the Choir Boy lead singer had. Very much depeche mode vibes. Felt sorry for IR as the crowd was dead for it, still did their best though regardless.
  3. This is brilliant. Can't wait to attend tomorrow.
  4. Anyone been before that knows what the venue is like? Is there much security? Easy to get in and out? Smoking area?
  5. As long as they keep the garage rock & hip-hop I'm happy
  6. If I'm being honest I'm 1000000% more likely to return to PS than RW but that's personal preference. Queues to get in were horrendous, crowd was dead, site is out of the way to get to, drink choice was limited, zero nightlife apart from a naff DJ & food was unspectacular. Though might have just been a bad year I went to RW. EDIT: Also each act ever so slightly clashes so you'll always miss the first or last 5-10 minutes of the next set on.
  7. It's still a good festival. Lineup is always killer. Just I personally wouldn't go back.
  8. I was literally going to say... reminds me of Rock Werchter lol: Rows of people stood still arms folded for Metallica and System of a Down, come on now! Didn't get too much of that at Prima, generally easy to go past the boring people to get to the hardcore fans at the front.
  9. Do we think they will drop the whole lineup again in June similar to when they did in 2020 or will they wait a bit longer?
  10. Feel like a lot of issues could be solved with better crowd control. A few options they could utilise: "Zigzags" or sectioned queuing for bars or access to Mordor etc. Better informed staff who can direct festival-goers to the nearest free bar, different sections of the same bar. More bars nearer main stage and try and expand access to and from the busiest areas A ciutat-esc live capacity option on the Primavera app which shows which stages/bars are less occupied at any times, even if it's just a rough estimate.
  11. Yeah the tap water tasted a bit weird but I checked several websites and everywhere said Barcelona tap water is safe to drink. Got a few perplexed looks from people at the festival who were convinced otherwise.
  12. It's interesting hearing so many mixed feelings on the festival. I'm in the camp of... that was probably my favourite festival I've ever been to. It doesn't quite have the magic of Glastonbury but by being condensed it's more a lot more forgiving and the hotel festival experience will be difficult for me to go back from. Even with the cancellations there was so much to see. Such a wide range of acts, I could be seeing a hardcore act one second and then a dream pop duo the next. The bits area is so unexpectedly nice as well. There's not hoards of people down there and it's so nice to have the option to just chill on the beach with an Aperol Spritz whenever. 100% want to try and go back next year.
  13. Top 5: King Gizzard, The Armed, Otoboke Beaver, Little Simz, Slowthai
  14. Just returned home after an unbelievable weekend. Thank you Primavera Sound. A few of takeaways: Stages I thought were great. Plenty of places to sit down and enjoy music. Binance & Cupra well designed stages for this. Food is really good. Standouts for me were the 5€ Pizza slices by Plentitude/Boiler Room and the Peruvian Pork Belly Buns (9€). I don't like being caught in the masses so I avoided Mordor when I could, definitely a good thing as discovered so many amazing bands/DJs. Recommend going to Bits at least once. Nothing like sitting in a hammock/deck chair on the beach by the Aperol Spritz bar listening to music from Dice stage. Despite what others may say, the tap water is safe to drink. It just doesn't taste as nice as the mineral water. Getting in is super easy, about 10 minutes from the metro to inside the arena. Security is very lax. Will look down the top and pat your bag from the outside. You won't be patted down at all. Getting back home after is annoying, make sure you have multiple ways of getting back just in case one of the routes falls through. No Metro between 2am-5am Thurs & Fri. Worth bringing a jacket just in case but I was fine in t-shirts and shorts all the way up til 6/7am without feeling cold. The NTS warehouse and Boiler Room stages are both very fun and give a nice break from the bigger stages. Bar queues really weren't too bad you just have to be tactical about which ones you join and where to position yourself. Drink prices are 4.50€ for a small beer and 9/10€ for a large spirit and mixer. Water is 2€ for a can. Strongly recommend getting a ticket for Ciutat gigs in the future and getting in before the first support. Massive gamble otherwise.
  15. Rapsody is a blow but Joey Badass with no serious clashes (para mi) is excellent.
  16. Thanks I've fixed it now 😅
  17. What's everyone's weekends looking like? Mines: Thursday: Faye Webster > Les Savy Fav > Dinosaur Jr > Gustaf > The Armed > VTSS Live > 100 Gecs > Black Lips > Black Midi > DJ Shadow > Myd Live Friday: Low > Autechre > Evian Christ > Parquet Courts > Kenny Beats > Earl Sweatshirt> King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard > Caribou > Jeff Mills Saturday: Porridge Radio> Rapsody > Dreamcatcher > Slowthai > Bauhaus > Gorillaz > Tyler, the Creator > Disclosure > Leon Vynehall
  18. Looked it up and it says it's €40 for unlimited trips in 1 month. Seems a bit much.
  19. Apologies if this has been mentioned already but how easy is it to get around on Metro/Buses/Trams etc? Also what's the deal with the travelcards? Worth it or just get singles?
  20. Really depends on who you see. With certain bands like Tool you want to sit back and soak it all in. Tame Impala in my experience are better seen at the back. However with high energy performances such as IDLES and Slowthai I will want to get to where the dancing/moshing is.
  21. https://www.primaverasound.com/en/news/repetimos-primavera-sound-barcelona---sant-adria-presenta-su-oferta-gastronomica The important stuff Food lineup is here!
  22. Heard pickpocketing is a big issue in Barcelona & late at PS. What's the best ways to combat this and what bag should I use to carry my phone/wallet in?
  23. @Fabrizzo why the downvote on asking a genuine question? I'm just curious. Apologies if I came across as rude it's my first festival here so I don't know better.
  24. What's wrong with calling it Prima? It's like calling Glastonbury, "Glasto". Just easier than saying "Primavera Sound 2022" every single time.
  25. Quimera is spanish for Chimera Chimera is a monster that spits fire You know who else is a monster that spits fire? Kendrick Lamar
