AFAIK only the wristband coming with the exclusive pack sold by FNAC need to be activated.

The rest come preactivated. But everything is fully detailed inside the box.

PD: Of course, in case you are getting the wristband shipped. If you only get the e-tickets, you have to collect the wristband at location.

Every time in the past they've added "and finally" on the last one they're announcing that day, which they're yet to do... so I'm still hoping!

I think it's just that most recent one, I noticed they didn't tag anyone in it first time around because I normally go on and have a look.

Hi everyone, I bought a 3 day VIP ticket a while back, was going to be my once in a lifetime 50th birthday present to myself - however, real life has decided otherwise and due to uncertainty around my work situation I cannot afford the trip anymore.

Would really appreciate if someone could point me to the best place to re-sell or if anyone here is interested - selling at cost price, not looking to make money from this just want to recoup my costs and hopefully a passionate music fan can take it off me.

I have an e-ticket from Festicket in PDF format - have checked with them and it can be re-issued under the buyer's name, so when it gets to the sale point we can exchange personal details and I will have the ticket re-issued. For everyone else - have an awesome festival, I'm sure it's going to be a great experience, have fun on my behalf, cheers!

Do you still have it ? I need one

Here is the final lineup

And with that, I updated the clashfinder again. I think it looks pretty realistic by the looks of it and tried to keep it balanced (clashwise). I reckon we get the official schedule by the end of May (like last year, wasn't it?)

Sadly, it looks realistic... a shitload of clashes for me :(

 

Anyway, about that wristbands problem I had (bought the tickets sent in the spain peninsula) - I talked with the assistence and they said that by this time they cannot make a switch of adress in order to send them in Italy where I live, but I can take the wristband(s) the first day of festival, as in any other festival!

I think the electronic headliners will be last on tbh. I think a lot of people will be leaving by the time they start at 3,  so i don't think capacity will be an issue, but also keeping a few bigger names til the end will convince people on the fence about calling it a night to stay. I'm doubtful many people are gonna stick around with the choice of Franz Ferdinand or Erol Alkan and Portugal. The Man or DJ Koze. 

It would also prevent some silly clashes.

I think Bar Tool said that the headliners of the electronica stage would play after the headliners on the mainstage. By having relatively smaller acts closing the night, it means people would leave in bits and not in one big clusterfuck. Can you imagine everyone staying until 4:30 am and 80k people trying to leave the fest by car or metro in 1 time? It's better that people get spread out like that.

I don't think loads of people will stay around til half 4, that's my point. A lot of people tend to pack it in after the headliners - Beni was relatively empty by the time Massive Attack were playing in 2016, for example.

They are not wrong. I imagine they won't play a lot of it live at festivals.

I read it was inspired musically by the wonderful Histoire de Melody Nelson - and I can see the influence, but it's a very poor copy. Maybe a grower, but sounds lightweight at first listen.

They're the Arctic Monkeys, of course they'll play a lot of their latest record live. They always do. Remember the Humbug shows, where 1/3rd of the setlist consisted of that album?

They've been playing 4/5 tracks by the look of it, which isn't many in a long set. Suspect that's what they'll stick to.

Compared to someone like PJ Harvey, who just spent a year+ touring her entire album with only a handful of other songs, they're positive crowd pleasers :)
