My mood in: April - I'm still happy now there's no Mordor, could feel more like the old days May - no Auditori this year as it's indoor, bummer but inevitable  June - confirmation that

Yes, you did. Three times. 

i think we're all forgetting something important - namely, which baffling, long-winded and quite possibly excruciating method will the PS team use to announce the line up this year? I'm hoping fo

It’s a uk music promoter. Reliable enough for me to reserve a hotel opposite the fest site (that’s non payable till arrival) that’s gonna treble in price if they do announce  a lineup worthy of PS has been achieved. Fingers crossed but obviously it could all come to nothing in which case we cancel the hotel. 
 

flights however, are sadly a loss 

Which hotel? Expedia are currently letting me move my flights free of charge, which is nice.

You're a gem, thanks for sharing with us folk. Will do the same. Nada to lose...

You’re most welcome. There’s literally no guarantee they’ll make it work but the hotel we booked, near princess, was about £100 a night. To get those rates for the fest if it were May would be nearer £300. 
 

our May flights were about £260, but to reschedule them would cost a stupid £300. So will just have to booms those again and take the hit.

Nearest one to fest is diagonal zero. Princess is also good but I think there’s also a Hilton or similar just up the way.

Would be such a luxury to be based at the Diagonal Zero. Out of adversity...

Can highly recommend the Hilton. Managed to get lucky in 2016 and got a twin room for 300 quid. Lovely gaff. Vincci Bit and Condal Mar are very good too.

Yeah, agree and I made it there once. There are some incredibly comfortable hotels near the Forum (incredibly expensive too normally).

Booked a free cancellation apartment near the Forum, thanks a bunch!

Joint the August hotel booking crew. Seems a big ask to be able to shift it to later in the year and keep even remotely the same standard of lineup, and I’m probably gonna end up losing money somewhere along the way, but fingers crossed they figure out something.

The princess hotel seemed to be $220+ that August weekend, while the Hilton, etc are cheaper. 

 

wonder if it does get postponed if they’ll still do extra stuff at the Apolo? Will take what we get at this point. Fully confident that they’ll put together a great program if the postpone. Maybe less big names which may turn out to be great

At this point I'll just be massively grateful to have the chance to go and will take what I'm given. I trust Primavera's organisers to do the best possible job in the circumstances. 

Still deeply sceptical of a postponement, seems too good to be true...

Before I do this and move the booking potentially pouring more money into something I'm now kinda downhearted about. How sure are we this postponement is happening? 

See Ohjesus' initial comment above.

The Strokes will still be around till the end of the year at least. Think most of the upper part if the line up will stay the same if the dates are moved. w*nk for me as I'm on holiday then (although just up the road near Perpignan) so could sneak out for a night, I'm sure the other half wouldnt notice!

Please nobody do anything that costs. All I’ve done is booked stuff that’s pay on arrival with the option of cancelling right up to the day before. I’ll book new fights once postponement is confirmed. 
 

as I am lead to understand it, those dates are reserved by PS as plan B, but of course, plan B just might not work out - for myriad reasons.

Rooms at the Hotel Princess are no longer available for the new dates (the dates before and after are still available).

Well that gives some extra credibility to the rumour.

First bit of good news in a very long time (though I remain sceptical they can pull off this logistical nightmare)
