What does this tweet say? Don’t get it...

He said May 18th, they replied with "and tomorrow is 19th"

Might be teasing us, as they don't reply to everyone

I can't really make sense of it, but it just seems like someone filled in Acts from this year into another years timetable.

What is Exiliados anyways? Do you have a link?

I have been going to Primavera since 2009. What initially drew me to the festival was the incredible lineups and want to get away from the usual British festival crowd and to not camp.

I now basically can't go back to the old ways. Sleeping in a proper bed (even with the weird day/night shifts my body has to become accustomed to) is a treat and my old age thanks me. Being able to get up walk around the city, buy some fruit, do some yoga on the beach, go for a swim is a godsend compared to walking the tent filled wastelands of British festivals.

The crowds at each show are generally really good. I think there is a really relaxed vibe and sometimes that does divulge into a little bit too much chatting near the back of some things but generally its nice and people are there to actually see the music not just be wild and free.

Although a lot of the build up to Primavera aggravates me (why is their communication so bad?) once you are in there it seems so well organised. I nearly always feel that acts are on the right stage at the right time (a few key exceptions). Of those stages some of them just feel magical, seeing that last set on the Ray-Ban stage, chilling on the grass at the back of Primavera stage, the underground club-like feel of the warehouse last time and the spectacle of seeing something delicate in the Auditorium all feel special. The grounds are also great, I refer back to a previous post that noted how the lack of camping means that when you enter it's like the site is brand new again.

The booking is always exemplary. It all comes down to personal taste of course but one look at the critical consensus of the majority of bands booked would show that they are looking for the brightest and best performers. The fact that I could redo the festival 2 or 3 times and see completely different artists that I would love is amazing and also there is very rarely anything playing that I despise, which compared to elsewhere is an impressive feat. Also knowing that on the fly I can just switch modes and decide 'do I want to mosh to The Armed? Relax to Cigarettes After Sex? or go and dance to D. Tiffany?' is wonderful.

It has certainly grown a lot more commercial and pop-friendly since I started going and the crowd has changed a bit more compared to the old days (no longer is it just 30 something white dudes in Sunn O))) shirts) but in a lot of ways it's been for the better. Primavera has embraced diversity and its resulted in a more vibrant and inclusive festival and us old dudes still have the option to go and see Lightning Bolt, Les Savy Fav and Dinosaur Jr like back when I first went. I like the fact that regardless of its new found direction it still is a million miles away from Coachella or Glastonbury and very few attendees see it as a festival to be seen at and instead it is still seen as a celebration of great music.

Anyway, I cannot wait to be back there!

This is a great post and exactly the kind of thing I was looking for! Thanks very much.

I love that some guy on that Spanish forum is (tech mumbo jumbo inc) checking the graphql call response JSON to see if the times are reported there. Dedication. 

Spoiler: they're not. All acts currently display as playing for an hour at 12am. 

That being said, this is probably the best place to check for early leaks because that call could be made without the user-friendly version being updated. Use https://www.epochconverter.com/ to convert the unreadable times.

We are not at all freaking out 😄

Fingers crossed that these don't clash on Weekend1 (all other clashes I think I can handle):

DAY 1: Pavement vs. Dinosaur Jr vs. Black Lips vs. 100 Gecs 

DAY 2: The Strokes vs. King Gizzard vs. Warpaint vs. Wet Leg vs. Parquet Courts (though I plan on seeing both Wet Leg and Parquet Courts before the real festival starts... so normally those 2 clashing shouldn't be too much of a bummer).

I've viewed this JSON and there are quite a few acts missing. Namely Lorde, Playboy Carti, Ride, Slowdive, Megan Thee Stallion etc

What is the best way to get from Placa Catalunya to Parc Del Forum in the daytime? It looks like the shuttle buses only run at night unless I’m reading it incorrectly? Sorry if this has already been asked 🙂

L4 from Urquinaona towards La Pau, 8 stops I think
