It's mental that Hinds have never played Primavera, given their style of music and their nationality. Surely this year at last.

Also Manu Chao? Would be very popular.

 

I hope Hinds play. I think their US dates end a couple of days before so they should be around.

Pretty sure I've read Gabi R slagging them off. Doubt they'll ever play PS.

Jungle Brothers play Shinding Weekender the weekend before Primavera. What did Gabi say about more old school hip hop?

Forgive me for not being fully updated, but much of the lineup were shown to the 10 invitees? I´ve heard 30% been mentioned, is that correct? Do we know if they got to know all the headliners?

Yes, 30% according to this article in a respected Barcelona newspaper. Doesn't really matter much now, we'll all have 100% in a week's time.

You're right, I think. Doesn't seem that they saw the whole lineup according to a press report.

The only point I'm making is that for those people who believe the excited faces are evidence of having seen a really big surprise name (like McCartney), the fact that there have been no leaks suggests this is not the case. 

Unless ironically that there a really big surprise name and the ten weren't shown it was too sensitive to release!

From the small sample of people, I have been going to primavera with for the last 10 years or so if they saw McCartney/Manu Chao on the lineup their reaction would be more of disbelief and disappointment.

Really those two make sense on a festival like Cruilla that is also in The forum but make not a lot of sense in Primavera.

But then again that is just a small sample, I would hate it but I am most times wrong. 

At this point, I Wonder if you are just Trolling with the names you put.

I'm not trolling and I didn't suggest McCartney - it was another on the forum.

Why would Manu Chao be such an unpopular choice for Primavera? I'm genuinely curious.

I think the suggestion that you know 'people' who would find Paul McCartney at Primavera a disappointment is the biggest indication that alien lifeforms have reached Earth in this decade. Expect a visit from the men in black. :P

He's rubbish. I've heard that all is does is covers of an old band called the Beatles.

At Rock Werchter 2016 he was more than fantastic. I've never been a fan of Macca nor the Beatles, but he's incredible. He even made me cry (and not a lot of band achieved to do that on me!). He plays solo stuff, things of the Beatles and the Wings, and it's amazing. It's actually the perfect act for a festival, and everyone's loving the moment. We danced with a 70 years old man who seemed to be having one of the times of his life.

OpenAir St Gallen announcement today and TINALS tomorrow - could throw up some decent clues, especially in the latter. I'd expect Field Day to give some names this week as well, assuming they have their licensing issues sorted.

So he's around in august as expected :)

The other acts in the top5 are playing in PS weekend, and supposedly available. He might be one of those acts they've been waiting for.

But I guess you're talking about Sziget, not PS, so we'll see.
