I assume it is widespread, but it is a bit weird how they're kind of saying: we know the workers are treated shittily, but we're not taking responsibility for it and it's on you to be nice to them. Weird flex in my opinion.

I assume whoever posted that is saying: Primavera doesn't treat its workers very well and they're not going to change so please make a point of being kind to them.

And even if Primavera did treat them well, still be kind to them... They're working hard for a bog portion of the day/weekend, so you can get your beer and have a good time for an entire weekend. Not that hard to be kind to other people, just don't be an asshole. Everybody's there to have a good time.

I have read this quote before, and as I haven't attended since 2017, it might be even older than that. Not saying this automatically means the situation is better but I even recall that year being better than the ones before.

Big Jeff is very easy to catch in Primavera.

He's a big guy and he's usually standing on the left hand side. He got a shout-out at the last Idles gig: "Fucking hell, it's Big Jeff!"

There are so many bars, I think getting a drink isn't really a big deal. I've only ever seen some bad bottlenecks around Rayban. The solution is to go to another bar if this happens - it's not going to be far away.

Boring non line up related question but anyone else having issues with the AccessTicket App & it not loading the QR code correctly?  I've completed the security checks so good to go, but now when I open the app the spinning wheel appears & doesn't load up anything in 'My events'.

I'm imagining this happening to numerous people when scanning at the entrance gates & it being chaos if this is replacing the old credit card system we used to have.  Not sure if that has been confirmed anywhere?

Mine is fine this end. There is a support and help option under the settings, not sure how helpful that'll be but worth a try. I haven't had any issues so far moving from redtkt to AccessTicket. Seems like Dice is having a lot of issues unfortunately.

I'm really hoping that once the qr code and ID is loaded it's saved in a cache somewhere, if it's relying on an internet signal at the gates it could potentially be a nightmare if the app bugs out from all the requests.

Actually, probably just work taking a screenshot as well if it is linked to the internet, I didn't think the app allowed you to a couple weeks back but it seems to have worked now.

Thanks.  Yes, my thoughts too re the internet signal at the gates, would be good to get an option to download to a smart phone wallet, or screenshot.  Just need the ticket back first.

I've messaged them either way & any relevant news I'll post back.

Absolutely, I think all tickets need to start transitioning to saving to a Google Wallet/Apple Wallet in the future. The Ticketmaster App is atrocious and ive had plenty issues of loading that up at the entrance to a venue! Thankfully you can save tickets to that to Google Pay so I can never have to open the awful app.

Presumably they will set up a wristband exchange in or near the Poble Espanyol on the Wednesday which should in turn cut down queues on Thursday.

Even if you only arrive on Thursday would recommend getting to the forum before you head there for the night to do the exchange. It's not like it's far - i.e. it's 15 mins by taxi from the centre of town.

but my thinking is the app QR code replaces the credit card we've had in previous years in addition to the wristband, the one that is scanned at the turnstile gates at the forum.

2019 feels so long ago & I can't remember if we had them then?  I know I've still got a few older ones from previous years.

Ooh I actually like this. There’s life in arcade fire yet. 
 

(albeit not showing through original content 😕 )

It actually just sounds like an AF song and better than most of their content since Reflector IMO.

Big Secret show/last minute replacements contenders: Kevin Morby and The Brian Jonestown Massacre are both in France during Weekend 1 and don't have other shows that weekend if I'm not mistaken.

The same goes for Ibeyi on W2 (one gig on the Saturday on central France, nothing else in between)

Would like that a lot.

Really not sure it's better with all these clashes, but adding Brian Jonestown Massacre to some Razzmatazz gig would be cool

If anyone's still having accessticket problems, reinstall the app. This fixed the transfer problem for a lot of people

Thank you, the classic 'switch off / switch on' has fixed that problem at least

Been looking at some setlists so I can get an idea of what to listen to for some of the acts I’ve discovered/am less familiar with and noticed that The Strokes have not only finally stopped playing Is This It almost in its entirety, but actually don’t even play Last Nite anymore or even some of the other more well known songs from it. I’m sure it wouldn’t be popular with some as it’s an obvious ‘festival anthem’ or whatever, but as somebody who could happily never hear that song again, I hope it’s left out at Primavera and they play a similar more varied setlist like they were doing at festivals earlier this year.

Hey, a friend of mine just decided that he wants to join us for the 2nd weekend. What do you think is the best option to get a ticket now, the Dice-waiting list? Or is ticketswap legit? Thanks for your answers:)
