For anyone who has stayed at both do you generally like the Hilton or the Princess more? With primavera going on is it ever feasible to chill by either pool during the day or are they usually packed? Seems like the Princess is a tad closer, but looks like a smaller pool and less chairs. 

I like the AC Marriot more, right in between the two. With the 13th floor outdoor pool offering good views of the Forum.

Downside is you can hear the soundcheck clear and loud all day long, and they start quite early if you're the type to go to bed at 6am after the last set.

I've done both the AC and the Princess in the mid 2010s and my choice would be the AC - better pool/rooms etc.

My friends, tomorrow I'm finally leaving for a 8-shows tour with my band in France, Germany, Czech Republic and North of Italy.
It's happening.
Just wanted to share it with you.

See you in less than 3 months!

Seen a couple of clash finders that have Disclosure playing at 4am on the Saturday, how realistic is this? Booking our return flight today and we have to be at the airport for 9am, just seeing how much sleep I'm not going to be having.

My bet is that they are either closing Mordor (02:00-03:00ish) or playing the best Rayban time (03:00ish).

Does anyone remember the perks ticket holders from 2020 get for keeping their ticket? 
 

From memory it was something like € to spend on food/drink and some random stuff like a book and a t-shirt. Typically I can’t find anything online

From the mail we got from Primavera last month. The money can be different, since it's % of how much you paid for your ticket:
+ Bar credit available per ticket: 14,50 €
+ Special Edition Book per ticket
+ Special edition T-shirt per ticket

That’s exactly what it is. You’d have got an email to confirm your perks a around the beginning of last month. Have a search in your emails.

Credit not a lot but still generous to have it at all in a way.

Imagine they will give you a voucher to spend at the bar.

I can’t remember where it was from, something to do with an article about DJ Seinfeld I think, but it listed a few of the Ray-Ban stage closers, one of which was Disclosure. Mordor already looks pretty stacked that day so Disclosure playing a smaller stage makes sense, though I think they’ll play a live set at around 3-4am rather than the full on closing set which I think is usually a DJ 4-6am. Either way, I hope you have a pillow for the flight!

Thanks xxialac and @Martin_89. Looks like I haven't been receiving emails from DICE since last year. Thankfully I've checked the app and I definitely have tickets for this year! Will send them an email to make sure I'm still getting comms

YYY's announced Manchester and London gigs around Primavera, just promised "some tunes so fresh and SO NEW"

Hopefully that means we’re actually gonna hear this new stuff first and not that they’re just road testing a bunch of new unheard material.

Might not to be relevant to PS but Arcade Fire are back.

New logo and doing a gig tonight.

It's a benefit gig for Ukraine tonight, so by itself, it doesn't mean much. But add that to the postcard thing from a few weeks ago, and yes, sounds like something's cooking

If Disclosure are indeed playing at Ray-Ban, they're on at 3am. I don't doubt the info that appeared on that Dj Seinfeld post but their placement feels odd. Historically those 3am sets at Ray-Ban have been way too packed so putting one of the biggest closing acts of the weekend over there seems kind of ¿dangerous?. Anyway, if they end up playing at Mordor they'll be on at 2am so not much of a difference time wise.
