  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. I imagine some acts have probably reduced their fees as well to kickstart their touring operations next year and actually get an income - the competition from the number of festivals for next year, coupled with festivals not rising prices and having to cut their costs given the financial hit of this year will be a factor. Maybe it was no longer economically viable getting Lana.
  8. Aphex Twin has not been confirmed, they've said. They were referencing previous lineups.
  9. They've switched to English on the radio show to discuss the lineup. So hopefully some clarity.
  10. According to Reddit, they dropped Aphex in casually
  11. Pavement The National NIN Portishead Thom Yorke Four Tet Massive Attack Tyler The Creator Caribou Disclosure I think we’ll get a couple of exclusives, similar to Pavement last year, they could have easily announced some rollover artists yesterday.
  12. With Primavera 2020 unfortunately no more, who's going to be playing next year? Will the lineup stay the same or change? Hopefully there will be some room for NIN on the lineup.
  13. One thing that they could do to make up for the inevitable loss of American names like Lana, The National and (probably) Tyler, is to potentially merge with Sonar - just an idea, but it would definitely fill up the programme and there is a lot of crossover with acts like The Chemical Brothers, Despacio, Princess Nokia, Arca, Max Cooper, The Black Madonna, etc. if Primavera goes ahead on this new August date. Sonar is either going to be postponed or even cancelled, so it could be a logical step. I believe the day tickets to Sonar are near the same price as Primavera's day ticket, so it wou
  14. If only Primavera was this transparent...
