Having tested positive on Sunday I'm just glad I'll still be able to go (although the way I'm feeling right now partying is going to be a supreme effort). 

What are those different options for getting home you spake of @Quadrophobia?

Other than the last years, there is an extra exit right at Mordor, so if people wanna go home, they don't have to walk all through the site. Also increased shuttle Bus frequency and 24h Tram service will mean less congestions Thursday and Friday nights

Apologies if this has been mentioned already but how easy is it to get around on Metro/Buses/Trams etc?

Also what's the deal with the travelcards? Worth it or just get singles?

Very easy. It’s a small city and the forum is not far.

Get a t-usual which is cheap and valid for 10 trips.

I have a regular ticket for W1, so the issues with VIP tickets are not a thing that I am concerned about. However, I understand that Primavera should have a more clear communication, explaining the changes and how it will work. That said, I can't understand people calling it a scam or saying "VIP never again" without experiencing it first.

About BITS, there is nothing I want to see there, so don't care about the bridge being closed. In the past I went there to see a couple of things. But for those of you complaining, with a sold out festival and a tiny bridge (that was very often a problem), do you prefer to have security risks there just because it is closer using the bridge? And those complaining about just shuttles for those with reduced mobility, would you like to have a buggy just for you, to be more comfortable? 

Really, people complain a lot these days.

What is the sudden change in Ciutat priority? Why is the VIP setting a big scam?

Aside from also changing the VIP view to the Binance stage, it's going to be harder to enter the Ciutat as VIPs as every ticket that's not a one-weekend regular is going to get the priority, so it's value has downgraded. In fact, last year they actually said that one-weekend VIPs won't get the priority while a double-weekend regular will get it. People got angry, so at least that's changed - but the whole point of having a VIP to me is making it to more concerts with a decent spot (which I consider the front rows). Me and my friends would've never bought a 5th consecutive VIP (+upgrade to double) had we knew about those changes in advance.

Sala Apolo IG post today stated that the access of PS ciutat will be on a first come first served basis whether you are VIP or General passes.

Ok, now that sounds like a scam.

Primavera confirmed that there would be separate queues. It will be first come first serve for Double Wknd pass holders/VIP first & then general pass holders.

I might be wrong but I read that post as two seperate queues for access, then first come first served from each. If they've ditched VIP access to the city gigs then that's a right stitch up.

Pretty glad that I’m not really interested in any of the big or particularly tiny and popular weekday gigs as this whole thing sounds like it’s gonna be a nightmare - hoping the mid-sized and less popular ones I’m largely hoping to attend will be a bit more streamlined and less of a shitshow.

The official website FAQ still says VIP have priority https://www.primaverasound.com/en/barcelona/faqs-primavera-sound-2022

Access to the Primavera a la Ciutat venues will be on a first-come, first-served basis until full capacity of the venue is reached. Priority access will be given to holders of the following types of tickets:

- VIP

...(etc)

So apparently we have two different sources of information from PS and Sala Apolo.
