Primavera Sound 2022

So I’m an idiot who has left booking until the last minute. I have my flights sorted but need accommodation for Weekend 1 (1st-6th), two people (preferably two separate rooms) - anyone have any good recommendations or at least places to check for decent prices?

Also have ended up with a spare ticket to sell (miscommunication in the group chat from 2019…. Discovered this year the other person in the group bought their own ticket), anyone know anyone who would be interested / can you just do a ticket transfer on the Dice app?

There's been a teaser for Sky this month from her record label so something is definitely happening.

Slowdive I would imagine may play some new ones, but they never committed to releasing anything - recent interviews have been like, we hope it'd be out by the festivals but who knows, it takes as long as it takes.

Slowdive put a couple of IG stories/posts about recording a new album which dates back in 2020. 

There were rumours that album was supposed to be out last year somewhere in fall.

Honestly pal I'd say the opposite.

 

When I saw King Gizzard in the past I was fairly new to the band and really didn't enjoy it, I found a lot of songs blended into one another and it just felt repetitive. 


However, I then got really into them last year and listened to the Ally Pally live they released (the show I went to) and honestly appreciated it a lot more. 

I wouldn't say it's the opposite, but somewhere in the middle.  I saw them about a week after hearing a few songs in 2018 & left the gig completely floored. Sure, I didn't quite "get" songs like The River or Rattlesnake at the time, but as a whole I was incredibly impressed. Seeing them after a year immersing myself with their music made the experience more enjoyable, but I don't think it's necessarily required to enjoy or acknowledge their music, level of talent, or musicianship.

Would I want to be vaguely familiar with their music when having the opportunity to see them 4-5x in one week where they won't be repeating a single show? Absolutely.

Speaking of rooftop bars, anybody ever visit the rooftop bar at the W in town? The view looks really cool.

Does the view just look out to sea/along the coast?  Probably a very cool bar in terms of lights etc but I really like being in among the buildings.  I've also seen 1881 per sagardi at Barceloneta mentioned, but I think that's "just" looking across the harbour on a slightly raised platform.

Our AirBnB host (previous reviews great) isn't responding to any messages and the latest review is from this month saying she cancelled on the day. Fantastic. Looking like we'll need to pay 3x as much and stay 5x further away now or risk showing up with no accommodation. Fuming doesn't cut it.

Get Airbnb to call them. Better to get the booking confirmed or cancelled now.

The booking itself is already done and paid, although refundable, I just don't trust this host not to screw us over on the day considering they don't reply to messages. Rather shell out now for someone more reliable than be constantly worrying about it.

I've heard that Airbnb in Barcelona is only available for a one month rent.

We have an Airbnb booked for a only few days, I messaged the host last week and he confirmed everything is fine with our booking.

Re. Airbnb in Barcelona: 

If you are a host that wants to let a spare room in the property you live in then you can only do this for 30 days or more.   

if you are letting out an entire apartment then you can let it to tourists for short stays, but you must have a tourist licence.  The licence number must be displayed on your adverts. 

Barcelona city council is cracking down on illegal holiday lettings.  This is probably why lots of people are having their Airbnbs cancelled.

Oh man that's a pain. We booked AirBnb appartment ages ago and it has been a niggling worry ...thankfully the owner was in touch this week and it's all good. I hope I havent jinxed it now 😬

Now just have to worry about flights being cancelled or going down with covid 😆The world is hard work right now.

Hope it all works out for you.

Thanks, there's a good chance that this is what's happening then since it's a room rather than a full apartment. Will look into other options. Cheers!

Anyone got a bar in Barcelona that I could watch the Scotland - Ukraine playoffs game on Wednesday 1 June , near poblenou would be good .  Or does the Brewdog in Barcelona show sport.

we watched football here on the Weds in 2019 - great beer hall type place that shows loads of games

Imagine Primavera booking Travis Scott for Barcelona at a cheap rate as a headliner replacement. 

At least it'd be an easy decision to go see anything else, I guess.
