  2. Yeah I think if festivals go ahead this year, they would have to work together to agree timings. I imagine the camping festivals, particularly in Northern Europe (Roskilde, Open’er, BKS, Werchter, etc.) would get first dibs on mid September and then the Mad Cool, Prima, Nos could take place at the end or in October as they would be warmer. I think then acts would stay in Europe to get some form of income.
  3. Could Primavera conceivably take place in October? Would the weather still be relatively warm, say if it took place mid-October? I imagine that there is going to be a lot of competition for acts if it took place in September and everyone is holding their festivals over a 2 week period.
  4. Governors’ Ball which is usually on the same weekend as Primavera has today announced its dates. They seem confident, hopefully telling for Prima...

  6. I think the scientific consensus is that for full herd immunity to take place - 60-65% people will need to be vaccinated - so we would be on our way for that. Also, it's important to keep an eye on the US, they have promised to vaccinate 100 million in 100 days after Biden gets elected. So maybe something for Europe to learn from...
  7. I was thinking of spending the week before PS in Ibiza - got to make up for 2020...
  8. Mixmasters, and here is the article - https://theibizan.com/pcr-test-required-to-enter-spain-but-ibiza-will-pay-for-tourist-tests-in-2021/
  9. I just received this email, looks like they’re planning to open Ibiza up at Easter, hopefully bodes well for Prima in June...
  10. Apparently All Points East has been pushed back until the end of August - they were due to have Tame Impala, Massive Attack and a few others from the Primavera bill - if they kept some of their 2020 line up. I imagine something similar will happen to Primavera.
  11. Let's not forget there are 6 more vaccines in the final stage of testing with very similar methods to the Pfizer vaccine - so even if there are supply issues with the one announced today - if half get approved, there should be enough vaccines for mass inoculation by March. Not to mention the mass testing, we're testing all of Liverpool (a 500,000 person city) - so I think in 6 months time, testing the whole capacity of a festival will be possible. I'm hopeful that June could still happen, but they should move it to August just to be on the safe side.
  12. Once a vaccine is announced, I think there will be real pressure to get events up and running again. A number of economies rely on not just large music events, but sporting events. I can't see them not having audiences at the Euros or the Olympics, I think there will be a real push from countries around the world to put together a robust testing regime, once a vaccine is available as that will shore up resources a bit, whilst they are injecting the most vulnerable in society. By all accounts, the Oxford University vaccine is looking very good - there looks to be millions of doses already in pr
  13. I think if the vulnerable can start to be vaccinated from the start of the year, with a combination of rapid testing - large scale events will reopen. I think that is likely to happen by May 2021, which might cut it a bit too fine for Primavera to happen, so I wouldn't be surprised if it is moved to August. I think end of June/July is more realistic for music festivals to restart.
  14. I think they could legitimately call FKA, Doja Cat and potentially Charli XCX headliners, each are definitely bigger than Brittany Howard, King Princess and Kacey Musgraves. FKA was meant to headline Lovebox and Doja Cat is having a moment.
  15. It'll be The Strokes, The National, Massive Attack (if they are confirmed), Pavement, Disclosure, Bad Bunny and Tyler from the original lineup and then Gorillaz and Tame Impala as new ones
