All 26 weekends in the second half of the year just to be on the safe side x

Probably not the worst idea to book a couple, as long as they're fully refundable of course.

Yeah, exactly go for it. The talk seems to centred on the last two weekends in August.

Just to check, people have been booking rooms for the last weekend of August yeh? 

Yes, that is how I understood it. It is also the weekend when Hotel Princess is fully booked. Rooms for the weekends before and after were still available.

my source says the hoped for reschedule is aug 26th onwards, with Porto the week after - I guess it’s anyone’s guess how much outside of the usual thurs-sat events might be replicated now though.

Thinking about it, Porto will get the biggest boost from this (if it happens...)

Porto early September is much less rainy than in June. Kinda best time of year to go there really.

I'd love to go at that time but it clashes with End of the Road 😔

Gabi's on RPS in 10 minutes, until 12PM (Barcelona time)

I hope he gives some hints for some names who will be playing. When are we expecting the poster to be out? Rumours swirling around about Beck, Massive Attack and Frank Ocean. Can't wait to be there in June!

Was putting a brave face on it but hints that postponement (no dates mentioned) is also a possibility. Mentioned that hotels would change bookings which I thought was quite revealing.

Don't get why he is playing with hints. Couldn't care less about the hype now. If you are not ready to make a statement then just don't speak

Poor guy, he isn't informed properly, need to read more this forum, nobody told him Primavera is now in August... :)

I know critical thinking isn’t your thing but could it occur to you that he doesn’t want to announce a postponement and then have to disappoint people. So they are going about it very carefully and checking it is a realistic plan (against a complex and evolving global pandemic situation) before confirming it?

And the Frank Ocean suggestion was a joke about this feeling like Groundhog Day obviously.

There is also another reason to play the ´everything will go on as planned´ game:  to let government - and not the festival itself - to cancel, and thus get away financially (and save future festivals) with the force majeure clauses, relieving the festival from contractual obligations with bands, venues, audience etc. As has happened with other festivals lately. I still have hopes for an August edition though.

lol, people will complain if he doesn't say anything either. I think it's fine that he comes with a statement that they are planning on going on as planned, but that's something he can't control. It's still over two months, but don't get your hopes up with this statement.

maybe "hint" wasn't the best word, the situation is so up in the air that it's hard for them to say anything for defo. moving the festival to a later date is an option for them for sure.

If he wanted not to disappoint  fans he would announce cancellation sooner then later...most hotels have policy of refund to specific date ( mine up to 5th may and only 50% , after that nothing ), given that we have almost 3 months to festivals and hope that we will have hot April and May most probably option that festival indeed will go as planed and this corona lunacy will be behind us

And this is the reason why people should have travel insurance when you order a travel so many months ahead.

yesterday was a terrible day in Spain with more than 150 dead in 24 hours. 

this morning is really not the time for PS to announce anything, even if anything was closed already
