Primavera Sound 2022

Sorted our accommodation change. Once again if you've booked an AirBnB that's just a room rather than a whole apartment, beward, government is cracking down and several AirBnB hosts are either keeping very quiet or pulling out. 

Had to pay a lot more and will be a 50 minute metro/bus ride after the festival but I'd rather do that than show up and be turned away from the AirBnB. Sucks but hey.

Much more of an indication of how they are live now. I'm really looking forward to them. 

Yeah peak of their powers here.  If we get them on the same sort of form, it will be a treat.  They're a live juggernaut now with 100s of shows under their belt - Glastonbury 2010 was one of their first ever proper gigs.

Newly added KOKOKO! are a brilliant live act for the new opening night. Also Teto Preto.

Happy to read this, literally just giving them a listen now (KOKOKO!) & sound great. 

Gutted about Jessica Pratt, Turnstile & Perfume, but Mdou Moctar is a fantastic addition & also brilliant live.

I see that Arcade Fire did a secret set at Coachella. Is it not impossible that they do one at Prima (especially having done one in the past)?

Not impossible, but seeing that they’re playing London tomorrow and the flying back to America to do SNL it’s perhaps unlikely that they’d then fly back again for a mere secret set. Probably just gonna headline next year outright instead.

Was thinking the same. Bit worried about facing a massive queue up the slope on June 2, it'll still be v busy but the June 1 show should take some of the pressure off.

I notice the Wednesday event is, unlike previous years, for PS ticket-holders only.

Looks like Ben UFO has pulled out too, or I atleast cant see him on the poster

He's still on June 4th, at least at the poster that is on the website right now.

Ended up deciding to share a room with a friend, got it for 1000 June 1st to 6th. At Placa De Catalunya so good location at least.

Flights and hotel sorted, so now can relax. Fly Leeds to Reus, get the bus to Sants, Metro to Placa de Catalunya. And then fly direct from Barcelona to Manchester.

 

What's transport like from Parc Del Forum during the festival? Last time I was at Primavera was 2015 and I swear it wasn't 4pm-6am then?!

Also is the amazing kebab van still there?! / What else has changed since 2015?

I was last there in 2014 and just remember the food on site being poor to average at best

Not too happy about the changes: decided to stay till Wednesday because of the Turnstile show (Would probably have gone home on Monday otherwise) and booked evening flights on the 1st. I don't get how this announcement is something to be happy about if you're Weekend 1 visitor. Take a look at the comments on instagram and you know enough.

If there was a replacement for Massive Attack it wouldn't make sense for them to announce until the week of the festival given how much backlash they're getting so far. The festival can't predict when someone will fall ill/logistical travel issues

Yeah I agree with you. The updated poster makes it seem even more glaringly obvious. You can't have 5 headliners some days, and 1-2 headliners on other days. I bet they drop a few more headliners with the schedule.

I wouldn't put it past them to provide an MA replacement AND a 20th anniversary surprise (someone like mbv). Probably one for each weekend.

Anyone got a link to the June 1st info? Was it on Instagram or something? Can't see anything on the website but I find it pretty impenetrable!

Is it basically just the lineup poster? Just realised we don't land til 7pm anyway so not sure how achievable Wednesday will be.

And Napalm Death are back?!

Why would they do that?

 

people on Instagram are just not a metric. Social media aggrevates negativity. You just can't have a diferentiated debate there. Apart from Massive Attack there are 499 other acts on this bill and most of them are great. Its ok to focus on the cancellations right now, and MA is a bummer for sure, but the hate on there is childish af. 

As for this forum, I think many of us have just taken the absurd gradiosity of this Line Up for granted and then judge from that point of view. It still is by far the best bill in the world, even with the dropouts.

Probably the opening night will be something like 7-11pm. Two stages effectively. Poble Espanyol is also quite a walk from the metro (it’s on a large hill Montjuic overlooking the city).

Thank you! Will likely play this by ear then.
