I'd say about 20 minutes, assuming you're walking fast and not getting slowed down by the crowd.

Give it 30 if it means leaving the mordor when a show ends and everyone leaves

ahh okay, thank you.

Can anyone confirm or deny if there is still that little convenience store/newsagents just outside the festival site that sells big beers for 1 euro?

We're flying back home early Monday, right after the Apolo gigs.
Is there a decent cloakroom to put our luggages on around the CCCB?

Hey, Plaza Catalunya isn't too far from CCCB so there're a few options there. Check this website out → https://www.nannybag.com/en/luggage-storage/barcelona/placa-catalunya

I’m sure I’ve missed most of this chat but what are the biggest rumours for the secret sets this year? I was thinking maybe vampire weekend with Rostam being there already but that’s just a guess. Hoping for better than Haim this year

Can't remember any more. VW would seem a sensible guess. Los Planetas look nailed on as one (of the three?)

Jungle would make the most sense to me.

The National doing Boxer in full from 8pm-9pm on the hidden stage, before their short-ish 9:30pm set at Mordor. unlikely, but there's definitely room for a secret set there for someone between 8pm-10pm.

Yeah, agree. Someone will step up but probably not The National.

So if the Los Planetas rumor/leak is accurate, there's only one teased name to uncover next week:

No, they can't fit there. They belong in L for Los. 

Which means that they must be playing Unexpected not Hidden.

"There are still two big things ready to be announced. And as far as I know one will be a really freaky one (def. not the national that one)"

I assume Los Planetas playing "Unexpected" will be like Pond or Local Natives playing backstage last year?

https://unexpected.primaverasound.barcelona/

because Haim and Mogwai are FAR bigger than them, and I can't see anyone being particularly bothered to race to see them if it's some last minute announcement...

This is a Spanish festival and they are really popular in Spain. No reason in my opinion why they can’t play unexpected and draw a big crowd.

Nah, they're not that small in Spain. Especially if they're performing their 'classic album' I can see some people (including myself) that would be bothered.

I dunno, it might be an order glitch with the whole bilingual thing.

You’re right. Would surprise me as they are really good with detail normally but could be an inconsistency mistake.

Potentially stupid question, but how are secret sets announced? If it's last minute on the app surely anyone not local won't see it, due to probably not having mobile data?!

Last year arcade fire were announced last minute on the app

 The rest were announced in the morning or noon.

As for staying connected- I buy a local prepaid sim. 10 euro gives me enough data for the entire weekend

Animal collectives doing sung tongs? Makes sense with the tour coming up - also a few hours before Panda Bear set

Yeah, must be this for sure. They do the Sung Tongs tour with only two Animal Collective members: Panda Bear and Avey Tare. This mean they only need to bring in Avey Tare in addition to Panda Bear to make the show happen. This should be a great one, there is a full recording of this show on Pitchfork tv which is good. I actually have a ticket for this show later this summer, in US. Might see them twice then. Though both remaining Hidden Stage slots have significant clashes... Thundercat, War On Drugs etc.

What about The National Boxer show taking place in the Auditori? I don't know if they have secret sets there but it seems well suited

My girlfriend and I are contemplating doing a Casa Primavera reservation. I'm mainly enticed by the VIP upgrade for the day. Eyeing Thurs at 13:30 even though the chef doesn't seem that appealing to me. Fri's chef sounds better but 13:30 is sold out, the 19:00 conflicts with John Maus, and I don't plan on spending much time at Mordor anyway on Fri which is where the VIP viewing areas mainly are, correct? I don't see any for the other stages. Sat is 140 euros and no afternoon reservation which kinda sucks! 

Is it worth trying VIP for a day? This is my first Primavera.

VIP is nowhere as good as it used to be as it is now oversold and the price has shot up relative to normal tickets. It does give a discount on drinks but in the past drinks were free (!). They also have stopped you taking drinks out of the VIP area (I think, bit hazy on this point).

I'd say it's only worthwhile if you are really keen to be at the front for at least 2 or 3 headline acts at Mordor. There is a VIP at Heineken but it is set back from the stage so you are further away (though more comfortable).

Makes tons of sense, actually, and Panda Bear is only playing with Avey Tare on this tour.

 

Another possibility is an Arctic Monkeys set late on Friday. I don't think they will play Thursday, as they already play Tuesday/Wednesday in France.
