Primavera Sound 2022

Help!!

We fly UK -> Spain June 1st, fly back June 6th.

My friend just dropped the bombshell his passport expires August 26th.

Is our only option realistically the online one day service? No appointments, we’ve refreshed all day and only some Belfast ones became available. We need Durham. Is it now just a case of refresh all day every day and hope otherwise he doesn’t go?

or is there any other options? He found a site VisaHQ that guarantees 7 day passport renewal but I don’t know if I trust them.

Should really be called the FMH ticket instead - Fuck Me Harder.

The VIP pricing for the second weekend was extortionate, and the experience this year looks like it'll be worse than expected. There used to be a nice early bird discount to attract previous VIP holders to go VIP again, but if this is the direction Primavera is going, then that's the last.

Yup.. and unlike W1, I found that no Auditori stage at W2 is such a disappointment. I wonder why no people complaint about that.

I don’t Don’t know if I have missed them in my dive into primavera . Is there any bands playing that sound like The Black Angels or Wooden Shjips 

I guess the closest we had was maybe OM that got cancelled? Have you checked out the Indonesian band Senyawa playing the Friday W2?

How are yo la tengo these days? Never seen them, a fan of their trio of classic releases but also very eager to see the armed so I would appreciate a feedback 

Haven't seen them in a while. They were great headlining End of the Road in 2010. I remember they played "I heard you looking" which was very loud and beautiful, Ira Kaplan was really on form. Then I saw them at Primavera Porto in 2012 which was less great with a more sleepy feel to it.

Saw them in 2018 and enjoyed it, though it was very short and had hardly any songs from my favourite records, I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One & And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out

Still hoping for a Hidden Stage where Primavera-regulars like Bradford Cox, David Gedge and/or John Dwyer might appear...

Probably a surprise (if at all) at this point, as there's no Hidden Stage on the map (let alone other live stages with unannounced lineups)

See if the £177 2 day service has different appointments available to the 7 day one, yeah. Don't just sit refreshing the 7 day one for the chance to save £35. 

And do not under any circumstances use something like VisaHQ to try and get a passport in the next 9 days. Gov website only. Well, actually, I guess if you wanna gamble the money you could rather than cancelling everything as it might be hard to shift tickets at this point.

Good luck!

Nothing timetabled for the NTS warehouse until.10 pm . So could definitely get something on before that

A heavily-flavored electronic stage, that's 99.9% not a spot for Bradford Cox. Ditto for the Boiler Room stage (unless they go for DJ sets by the festival's favorite musicians)

Anybody got any kind of packing list or tips on stuff that may be useful for the festival/in general that others may not think of? Hoping to have a pretty streamlined two weeks and not have (m)any ‘oh shit why didn’t I bring/buy that?!’ moments.

They arent answering questions about the wristbands, are we sure there are going to be wristbands? Maybe they go 100% app.

You should have had an email by now and it's been answered many times here: "We will still give out a wristband because we know that everyone loves to have one, but its value will be symbolic." So yeah, but they're not to actually get in.

Stuff: summer clothes, undies and socks, jacket/hoodie for night, hat, shades, small backpacks, flasks for smuggling, eye masks and earplugs for plane/hotel, face masks if needed anywhere, books for travel/downtime

Consumables: Sun spray / aftersun, small sun CREAM for taking in (can't take spray), hand sanitiser, small tissue pack, compeed plasters, cheap toothbrush, travel bathroom supplies

Buy in Spain: Booze, snacks, paracetamol, 330ml water bottles hide caps, cigarettes, extra curricular substances optional 

There's my list if it helps!

Well, on an actual live stage at the bits called Bacardi LIVE, mind you 😉

However, the map shows a Bar where the 2017 "hidden stage" (in plain sight right by the entrance of the festival but hey) that Arcade Fire played their suprise Gig on was located. Since its a corner of the festival where nothing else happens, a bar would only make sense if there is a stage...

Great spot. There are so many potential smaller additions to the band, it makes so much sense that this would be the case.

Plus Hidden has been a tradition for a decade plus.

Adding to this: has anyone had experience with stuff like "Rave Doctor" or other vitamin mixtures at festivals? Guess I could use some extra vitamins 😄

Looks like you can only access the Primavera stage from the "far" side as the side that leads to the top of Ray-Ban is closed off.

Indeed. But that would be a total waste of space in front of that stage and double the time needed to change between the two stages as well as creating a totally unneccessary bottleneck. Lets just hope they don't do that. Also, the map doesn't show why they'd need to move the stage further towards the grass ramp.

am i right in thinking they've done away with the lovely free-for-all bleachers in mordor? a few of my friends have physical issues (not bad enough to be a full-blown disability, but enough to be a pain in the arse) and being able to sit on seats, not on the ground, was a lifesaver. and quite frankly, i liked being able to sit and watch bands without worrying about being trodden on/in peoples' way. would be a real disappointment if they're vip-only (though i can see vip are having their own issues too!).
