Cheers ghostdancer1 .. it used to be for 'the few' thought didn't it? We might have missed the change last year because one of our usual gang couldn't make it. I'd be dismayed to think we've missed this for years..

Nope, the Bits area has always been open for everyone.

JPEGMafia at 3 in the morning is going to be a hell of a thing.

The BITS area opened in 2017 so you have missed two years of it.

Seems amazing to me you could have gone 2 years and not noticed such a massive area, the listings in the schedule, announcements about it etc. Must be annoying!

They renamed it BITS in 2017 but 2016 was the first year of the "over the bridge electronica area" under the name Beach Club. It's been growing in size ever since of course.

You're completely right. I had misremembered 2017 as being the first year.

Wonder if anyone could give an opinion on this. I really want to see Alice Phoebe Lou but almost certain I won't be able to get my group together and into the site by 17.20 when she's on the Primavera stage. She's on again at 19.00 on the OCB stage.

Would I assume correctly that the set on the Primavera stage will be a "festival" set, maybe with full band and the OCB set will just be her with a guitar? Is the OCB stage tiny? I do notice the OCB stage set is actually a little longer than the main set strangely.

OCB is a new stage this year but the area she is playing is quite small. I would imagine that it will be a stripped down set, I expect the time line would be more flexible on that stage.  If I was a big fan I'd watch the Primavera stage set and if me mates weren't organised enough to be there on time tell them to come back later.

It is undeniably bizarre that we hadn't understood this.

Frustrating for you! On the other hand you can’t miss what you’ve never had..

Don't be dependent on your crew and just show up on time by yourself!

I don't know if it has been already asked: where can I find info about the OCB Paper stage schedule? Seems like I cant't find it anywhere on the web...

Has anybody got any tips on ensuring I eat the most authentic Spanish food as much as possible? I'll be in the city a fair so any good tapas places or street food recommendations would be good but I'm also wondering what the festival food is like. Any suggestions on decent food I can bring in to the festival would be good as well.

 

Ps. Cheap as possible too plz
