    Primavera Porto - going solo

    My friend doesn't turn up until the Friday so let me know if you want to meet for a show on Thursday. I know what I want to see that day but suspect there's something that overlaps. It's a great festival, super relaxed and everyone friendly. Porto is an amazing city, need to set aside some time to see it too.

    20 mins maybe though depends how you define a good spot. Not IMO, I really rate Father John Misty as a performer.

    Sound - generally excellent (occasional issues on the main stages). People talking - getting worse every year (worst on the main stages)

    Not really - wrap a towel around it!

    If they find it, they won't allow it. If...

    Did you sense your chosen seats were pre-determined/linked to your name or were they assigning seats linked to the time you arrive?

    All Points East Festival 2018

    As a newcomer on the block, I doubt it's the sort of festival that is organised enough to offer secret sets and that gap isn't that long. Though otherwise that Hot Chip Megamix thing would work well then. Hope I'm wrong, mind.

    Yes, VIP ideally or get there early. My tip if someone is talking around you constantly and being obnoxious is to politely punch them in the face.

    I know he's cheesy yet somehow I really like his vibes.

    Thanks. Not really sold on either description. Beers outside plus a bit of despacio sounds like a winner.

    Same question from me. Parts of that Saturday look a bit poor, albeit it does have some great names at the end of the day plus Rex.

    Doesn't fill you with confidence that they publish a limited number of stage times and then immediately start fiddling with them so much.

    Yeah, they've messed around with the Saturday afternoon.

    No comparison between the two. Grace is all entertainment, hits and unbelievable charisma. Was the best show I saw last year. Bjork may be a more talented musician but a big festival stage is not the best fit for her.

    I'd like to see Bjork. But not at Mordor, surrounded by people quickly getting bored of the noodly new stuff which they don't recognise and then talking all the way through.

    I've only just realised that the festival is next week. Going to be ridiculously good!

    Makes sense. They were rumoured. The big takeaway for me is that if true this confirms another wave of Unexpected bands as they can't be Hidden.

    What? PdC is in a village (with shops, restaurants, even a hypermarket) in the countryside, not far from cities like Vigo and Braga and the very big city of Porto. There are no jungles in Portugal. 90%+ of people simply camp onsite. Not sure why you left it so tight, couldn't you have left 15 mins earlier then?

    Too big for Hidden. Could play Secret/Unexpected.

    In my mind he was touring more than he actually is so maybe a chance.

    As much as I'd love it, I don't see it. Too much pond hopping.

    Ratio of good weather to bad is maybe 4:1. In the UK it's 1:4.

    I'm only referring to the 4 main days but yes last year was epic rainstorm on the Sunday.
