Can’t help but feel a bit concerned seeing the Primavera socials sharing the separate cancellations of both Big Thief and Porridge Radio’s 2022 Spanish tours today 👀😬 

But, in the other way, they announced two shows of Caroline for May...

I believe that, until Winter is gone, EU tours will be difficult (because of the logistics of tests and isolations and all of that). I imagine (basimg on last two years), that from April onwards, everything will be much easier.

On a side note, I've noticed a band Holy Tongue have popped up on the poster for a ciutat gig but they weren't included in any announcement nor assigned a venue on the day listings. Cuco is also on the poster to play June 5th but no mention of him on the venue breakdown either. Same with Pile on 7th & Phoenix on 8th. Chet Faker looks to have been removed from the King Gizzard gig but nothing said of where he is playing now. Ride still down as TBC having previously said Poble Espanyol.

Guess there's still a lot of Ciutat events still to be announced!

Wouldn't say "a lot of Ciutat events still to be announced" but maybe a few more, yes.

About the rest...wouldn't focus that much on the information about the venues/bands on the website. Since the beggining that it has some bugs.

For example, in the poster, King Gizzard are not mentioned to play on Wed 8th June (and they were supposed to be playing everyday) and the website still lists them to be playing.

Big Thief's concert in Barcelona was due this month. Was never going to happen, given spread of omicron at present.

Porridge Radio might look worse as was in April but has been cancelled for 'logistical issues'

Do bands really need get tested before every f show even if they are vaccinated?

I think that technical issue is just an excuse, true reason is Omicron.

I will mail Dice about this as well, but maybe here someone already resolved something similar so posting here as well. I have tickets for both weekends, but now it seems more and more unlikely I'll be unable to go both weekends so I will focus on the first weekend only. Does anyone know if it possible to sell only the second weekend of your ticket and keep the first? Or some other arrangement to change this? Cheers

I am not saying that they need to be tested before every show. But some countries require a negative test to enter the country (Portugal, for example), even if you are vaccinated, and many more require a negative test for big events (1k or more - Portugal, for example, and I believe Spain, and others, too). 

For example, Big Thief will keep their shows in the UK (at least, they are still listed in their website). It is easier to do a tour in just one country...in Europe, with several countries with their different measures, and with Ómicron, it is more logistical complicated.

Write them, but, to be honest, I do not believe that they will accept to split the ticket. Have you bought two different tickets (W1 and W2), or did you bouth a week pass (W1+W2)?

From what I've been told, a major issue with touring the EU right now is the fuck up that is Germany. Between total nutcase non-handlings like the UK thats past the peak because of former lack of measures and Spain, that has high immunity due to the very good vaccine-quota, Germany has both starkly rising numbers and a huge number of unvaccinated idiots. Adding a federal structure that is a patchwork of regulations that change every other week, its impossible to plan tours currently for many artists. Even if they are able to, many places request you to be fully vaccinated or recovered plus tested (some demand PCR) [some states exclude boostered from that obligation] and the validity time of a recovery certificate has just been cut in half, so everyone infected in late summer has to get another vaccine before being granted full vaccination status. Long story short: Noone is buying concert tickets right now and shows get canceled. It is unforseeable when this is gonna chance, so everything between now and April is highly insecure.

Tours that involved Germany now often would not be able to be profitable without that leg, as the bands would still need accomodation during the time the German shows were scheduled.

However, I doubt cancellations now tell us anything about the situation in summer. Omikron has proven to be much more infectious but also less dangerous (for each individual case) which is still a huge threat to health systems where too many people are unvaccinated, but also mean the immunity levels in the population are rapidly increasing

was that grimes dj set always on the poster?!?! ive only just noticed it and surely means shes in with a shout for a secret set?

I think had she announced a set then a secret DJ set a possibility but not the other way round.

On a separate note putting celebrity DJ sets high up the poster just cheapens it.
