Official site, but it won't let me get to checkout stage to purchase. Ticketmaster over Festickets, or does it matter?

The one that was sold out was the 160euro one (special offer one)

Full price ticket is available, this redirects to Festicket. 

Nah doesn't matter, guess try through both and see which adds least amount of fees

What is the chances of the Strokes being announced as a headliner for possibly the Thursday (alongside Bon Iver) for M.C? I noticed they are playing Bilbao BBK on Friday the 12th and Doctor Music Fest on Sunday the 14th! Makes sense for them to play a few festivals in Spain the same weekend before heading back to the states...

No chances, unfortunately. Julian plays BBK on Thursday with The Voidz.

To anyone who has been previous years, what was the beer selection like at the festival, was it the usual suspects such as Heineken/carlsberg  or like local spanish IPA's and lagers etc?

Beer selection was: You can buy a small beer, or a so called big one. (9 € for 0,5-0,7 l). Better don't buy that crap.

Yeh, pretty overpriced for spanish standards and selection was less than poor. It clearly wasnt thought as a strategical feature of the festival.

The good things were two, tho:

- Glasses could be saved and re-used to reduce trash and to collect as a souvenir (saving 20+ € for t-shirts that went sold out in a heartbeat);

- Uber people refilling glasses around, saving you the stress to go to a bar and start the royal rumble to collect a beer (+ you saved your place in the crowd if you were waiting for a show to start).

 

For what concerns water, and I think that they won't change it for the next year: collect a shitload of caps in advantage and try to snuggle them inside along with 2-3 bottles of water , as there are water fountains kinda hidden on the site where you can refill bottles (not best water EUW, but still water) and buying water is definetly a no-go, as they will charge you 1 € for bottles of 0,25 or 0,33 l (cant remember). Place is hot af between 6-10 pm, so you dont want to adopt the policy of "I drink only alcohol" cause if you get there by 6, you hardly will reach dusk standing on your feet.

Guns N' Roses announced a first tour date for 2019...  Slash has a gap between 9 and 15 June in his calendar. Thoughts?

It would make sense if they were holding back the announcement for a band of that size/prestige. Although they don't really fit in with the line up this year, so it seems unlikely.

Yeah I was trying to buy the full price ticket but it won't allow me get to checkout phase and doesn't redirect me. Its says - Oops! You just missed it. 3 Day Ticket: Item is not available.

also thinking about this concert Amadou & Mariam are good, been there last year for David Byrne concert,  it's nice and not that big place but would recommend if you go to the standing area to come early, I was thinking it's small so I won't have any problem to get good spot so I came from a afternoon at the Retiro park and of course buy some food and drink there and when I got the stage area few minutes before the concert start it was very crowded and i couldn't see nothing from the stage although I'm not short so I needed to go to the sides and stand on some things, but I would say it fells a bit like overbooking which I'm not sure is happening every concert there and David Byrne might be more popular. as for the seating area I wasn't there but it seems you have a good view from any place but although there were screens strangely they didn't work during the show.. maybe if I'll come I'll try it this time

Wonder how long they will go with this? Are they announcing the whole lot over the course of the hour?

No work at all is being done now.
