In general, if a headliner was replaced with a decent number of good smaller credliners I would be happy with that. I am not going to this festival because of the headliners. Never have, for 10 editions. But people are different and I respect that.

I just bought a random ticket on Ouigo for the fast track thing but low and behold it hasnt worked... Have emailed them to see what the craic is but hey ho was a 9 EUR cheeky gamble so no biggy.

Anyone else tried it with more joy than me?

I was able to do it, went through the website and then put in booking number, train number and email i think - no idea how useful it will be at the fest though!

I would have been more than happy even with just squid doubled to wk1

Totally agree with the over the top criticism. Clashes have always been present (even if this year they really thought about how to make them a real pain); I got no vip because I don’t care but for those who have I guess it’s better to wait and see before complaining. I can’t wait for the festival, it’s three years that I have been waiting, LOL. 
 

However, no. The headliner was not just 1 out of nine. It was one of the reasons many people bought the ticket ( PS knows it, there is a big electronic/darker sounding name every year for a specific reason, nobody cares about beck that much for example). And yes charli would headline other festivals, I agree that the value/money is insane but this is no other festival and had Massive attack and not Charli xcx on top of the bill. When it comes to possibile replacements: I understand, I did my research (although mitski, for example, looked available). But why not booking slightly less big acts such as Slowdive, just to name one, to do also wk1? I mean, it’s not impossibile, you just have to pay them money. I would be curious to know which bands they have contacted about a possible replacement set, just for the sake of it. 

If they added Slowdive to W1 I’m pretty confident there would have been almost exactly the same amount of complaining. Maybe even increased with people saying it was an insulting replacement for MA.

You can put your question to the festival organiser on tuesday!

 Really? As far as I'm concerned replacing MA with Slowdive would have been a major upgrade lol

As far as I'm concerned they had a spare £200k or whatever Massive Attack would have cost and have.. not visibly put it elsewhere. I don't believe for a second the "oh they probably tried their best to book others!!" narrative - this thread was full of suggestions of (even mid-table) artists who were doing the rounds elsewhere or would have come out of hibernation for a fat cheque, a nice week in Barcelona and decent stage placement.

Weekend One punters in particular have had, like, one new mid table addition and that was even before MA, Brockhampton, C Tanaga etc cancelled.

It's a good festival, the lineup is still stacked, and I'm happy to be going again, but I hope for everyone's sake they're not announcing so far in advance again.

They probably agreed that MA will return in 2023 and keep the money. Also, none of the suggestions on here were realistic, apart from, maybe, Mitski and shes maybe half the size of MA (cause the 16 yo Tiktok Goths hyping her now are hardly gonna go to PS) Once Again: If no single festival has replaced MA decently that is in all probability because they can't, not because they don't want to. PS has the privilege of being sold out and they don't have to care that much, but for other fests it would've been vital to replace headliners. And the would have if they could have.

Maybe I have missed it but is there a site map with all the WCs and other facilities marked on in detail . I only see the rather general one on the website ??

Hey everyone!

I´ve been reading this forum for the past 6 years (thank you all for all the info/conversation) but this is my first post 😅

This morning I went to the Forum to have a look at how the festival is building up, got a couple of pics! 

The new exit in Mordor is huge, at first I thought it was the old seating space but it connects perfectly with the street and the map confirms it.

Hope that we all have a blast this year!

The sweetness of setting my Out Of Office until June 20th today will only be rivalled by the first sip of Estrella at the forum!

Nice! Three days left of work for me after today (Sunday 😞, Monday and Tuesday) but then I'm off until the 9th and can't bloody wait.

Hey, guys. I know it`s a long shot, but if anybody still needs a ticket for W1 - I`m selling mine off for 100 euros. Hit me up in DMs if interested.

Anyway, wishing to all those going a fucking great one. Hope to be there next year

Google Translate for Qimera is Fiction/Fantasy Both songs by The XX 
Possible? Only Oliver not there, but he has just released his album. 

I doubt it. All doing their own stuff at the moment with no live dates announced and I doubt they’re gonna get their shit together to do a special one off show at Primavera.

Just to confirm: no queuing to exchange tickets, no wristbands, it's all done through the app now?

There will be wristbands. Can be exchanged from 2/6 on the site, but it will just be for show it seems. You need the app to access the festival and the city gigs.

Just to torture myself, I decided to take a look at the original 2020 line up for this festival to see what I would be missing out on. Only major one I can say is lost to me is Chromatics, and since they split, that's not bad going. Few gone from weekend 1 to 2 which is a shame, but the amount of talent added on to my weekend is crazy when you compare the posters. 

I know it's just a matter of taste, and some people are gonna be disappointed by band x, y or z vanishing but, in my opinion, they've done a super job retaining and building on this line up. 

That said, I could do with the national moving back to the Thursday to ease my heavy clash Friday!

What's the best internet provider for the cellphone in Spain -  specially in the festival grounds? Vodafone? Orange?

I am using Simyo because it is very cheap, like 25GB of internet is 9 euros 🤷‍♂️
