  1. The price increases are totally crazy, especially the VIP. Given how much of a rip-off they were this year, I honestly don't know how they expect this year's VIP ticket holders to upgrade. It feels like a fuck-off price now. We'll still go next year, but the regular ticket.
  2. https://www.parool.nl/wereld/slapend-van-amsterdam-naar-barcelona-vanaf-eind-2023-kan-het-met-de-trein~bebee737/ Plans for a night train from Amsterdam to Barcelona, three times a week, starting end of next year, maybe even earlier.
  3. Methinks Primavera is going to find out that it's over-reaching, and that it's "brand" isn't that easily transferrable.
  4. Just for comparison, the Rolling Stones cancelled their Amsterdam gig a couple of nights ago because Mick caught covid. Gig got cancelled after people had already entered the stadium. So I can cut the organisers some slack here because there's only so much they can do.
  5. I left after Mogwai. Done for this year.
  6. Give it time. The horde has to get mobilized.
  7. Could be a cold. I’ve got the similar symptoms but COVID self-test came up negative.
  8. Decent sized queue for the Apollo already.
  9. Love El Xampanyet, but 40 minutes to get in isn’t unusual 😉 BierCAB is reasonable, got a table in five minutes
  10. Cutting our losses, heading to Biercab
  11. Queue on the left hand side is the priority queue. Don’t worry, it’s not moving either
  12. Normal single weekend people in this queue. Not that it’s moving more than the other one. Lesson learned: food after, not before.
  13. Some people haven’t worked out that there are two separate queues for different ticket holders…
  14. I know, same queue, and 1+2 was displayed next to VIP on the banner. Didn’t get her in though.
  15. We had VIP 1+2 and got straight in just before J Beth, but someone else in the hostel had basic 1+2 and they wouldn’t let her in via the priority queue. Same in other venues she tried.
  16. Anyone getting into Razz 1? Tracker says hardly anyone inside
  17. Yup, yesterday was close to being back to normal, helped to reaffirm our faith in the festival
  18. Incredible, will try and see them Sunday night as well
  19. Pond were on the wrong stage
  20. Bridge is open for VIP but only in one direction! And there was hardly any one there. Madness, expand to a new area and make it difficult to get there and back. Was much better in earlier years when it was more accessible! It’s looking like more like sabotage than incompetence, almost funny at this point
  21. Hard to argue that VIP is any better than the normal ticket, and it’s possibly even worse. Sound at the Binance area was crap, at least during SVE, since they turned the stage. VIP area at Mordor is now a considerable distance from the stage, view is much better in front of VIP than actually in it, and the drinks situation was insulting. Guy in front of me went for drinks, got back more than a half an hour later. Same drinks problems at Binance. To add insult to injury, the drinks ‘credit’ is as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike, since the bars don’t take it. In a single day, Primavera has taken all the goodwill that’s been built up over the years, and pissed it up the wall.
  22. Pavement made up for a lot of shit. But most of the shit was self-inflicted by the festival. They decided to break almost everything that worked so well in the past.
  23. Stop what you’re doing and get to Ouigo, Gustav are awesome
  24. Is it just me, or is the sound from the vip area to the side of Binance really shit?
