  1. https://clashfinder.com/s/ape2022/ Updated Friday 19th & Saturday 20th with correct set times.
  2. https://clashfinder.com/s/ape2022/ Updated the clashfinder with the stage splits. Obviously take with a massive pinch of salt as no stage times have announced yet but should give an idea of how the bands will set up roughly.
  3. Sorry to be a beg but if by chance you get every date please could I get the Nick Cave ones? T&Cs were quite confusing, it says you needed to retweet the message and tag a friend. Does that mean reply? Reply and Retweet? quote tweet?
  4. Another stage lineup. Wouldnt be surprised if this was it, barring any late drop outs.
  5. Kenny Beats added to the Gorillaz day. Looks like Gabriels not longer playing.
  6. Damn that looks sick. Yeah I wouldn't want it to be a complete change, keep the main stage and headliners HC bands but maybe add another stage with more alternative/experimental hip-hop on it. Speaking to a few people at Outbreak and seeing some tees there I definitely think there would at least be some crossover with the fanbases. Unfortunate that Field Day changed a lot, used to have the likes of Death Grips and JPEG playing quite a lot, now it's just purely electronic.
  7. Funny thing is I did exactly the same a few years ago when The War on Drugs, Cat Power & Future Islands were supporting. Left halfway through The National as wasn't really that arsed with them. Yeah noone else on while the headliners on, can always leave the arena and go somewhere else. White Heat Club night (indie/rock) at The Lexington is every Friday and you can pick up cheap or sometimes free tickets on Dice.
  8. BST Hyde Park do that but APE don't from previous experience. Not sure if that's changed this year.
  9. 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.
  10. This is brilliant. Can't wait to attend tomorrow.
  11. Anyone been before that knows what the venue is like? Is there much security? Easy to get in and out? Smoking area?
  12. As long as they keep the garage rock & hip-hop I'm happy
  13. 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.
  14. It's still a good festival. Lineup is always killer. Just I personally wouldn't go back.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Top 5: King Gizzard, The Armed, Otoboke Beaver, Little Simz, Slowthai
  21. 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.
  22. Rapsody is a blow but Joey Badass with no serious clashes (para mi) is excellent.
  23. Thanks I've fixed it now 😅
  24. 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
  25. Looked it up and it says it's €40 for unlimited trips in 1 month. Seems a bit much.
