Struggled with the outdoor crowds for the first time this year.

I think it's the first time that the smaller stages, especially Pitchfork and Primavera, were much crowded than the mordor ones.

Really liked the side-by-side layout, I prefer it to the old one

Finally feel somewhat human today and the thought of having to do that to myself again this weekend (and then again a week later for Glastonbury…) is making me question what the hell I’m even doing with myself haha.

If somebody could create booze and drugs that don’t make you have an existential crisis for a week+ after consumption then that would be just swell.

I was at Mordor at the beginning of Gorillaz' concert in front of the VIP. It really got dangerous there, people were pushing from all sides, people began to panic and you couldn't move anymore... The other stages were very crowded too (Pitchfork and Ray-Ban) but such a dangerous situation have I seen nowhere else. So many people without any security system is gambling with lifes. Bits section seemed very empty to me each time I was there.

Exactly, sorry all vip holders here, them doing it without prior notice is wrong, but removing the vip areas in the front of the stages is the best thing they did

That's why I won't buy VIP again and pay double as much for the ticket. These sections have made it for me.

they'll have to reprice the VIP tickets if they keep this format (which I sure hope that they do), or add some other perks to it. as it is, I doubt it's worth the price

On our way to Barcelona! Kind of... Our direct flight got changed to a 3 hour transit at Orly about a month ago. Okay, sure no problem. 

However, we had to make a sudden stop at Schipol today after a person on our flight got heart problems. Hopefully she is fine, she seemed awake and okay when she got helped out of the plane. Fingers crossed.

And now our flight from Orly got delayed 3 hours, and I got screaming children on all sides at the airport...

Hopefully this is not an indication on things to come during this years Primavera 😅

"forbid" because PS have increased the amount of people at the festival, and so would be using the bridge.

VIPs, people with disabilities, staff etc are still using it, so the "new harbour owner forbid PS from using it" line from Gabi is at least partially untrue.

I'm sure if it was a smaller festival, as it used to be, the bridge would still be in use for all.

I'd be far more confident that the real reason is Health & Safety assessments determined that the crowd sizes will be too big.

yeh was just repeating what the great gabi claimed really

Hey! Sorry if it's been asked (I tried searching previous pages) but how secure is having a DICE ticket for Phoenix tonight? I have friends that are totally put off by queueing for doors opening when they only want to see Phoenix tonight.

In a similar situation, have dice tickets but have no Intetest in seeing the first 2 acts, would we still have a reasonable chance getting in after the music has started rather than going at doors and waiting 2/3 hours for ride to start. Completely gave up on the city shows after the chaos of sunday until tonight. On the plus side managed to grab tickets for thindercat/nas/rhcp yesterday all of which where incredible.

I messaged razz on instagram who said as a ticket holder I would have guaranteed entry and could come whenever, if there’s any issues I’ll just be showing them that

Just landed back in the UK after an amazing week. The bars on the first day were outrageous but had no real impact on our enjoyment and then were obviously much better for the next two days. 

Probably my top 5 acts:

  • The National 
  • Gorillaz 
  • Beck 
  • Caribou
  • DJ Shadow 

Honourable mentions for Disclosure, Fred Again..., Dinosaur Jr and Les Savy Fav. 

I did my classic of forgetting how much the heat impacts my appetite and didn't eat well at all. Which, coupled with the amount of lager drank, put me in a precarious position a couple of times. 

Weirdly, and I know this won't be an opinion shared by many people, I think the stages could do with one less act and more time between them. It was always more of a rush to go to the toilet/bar/food stalls between things than I like. 

We were staying basically on the beach so got my fill there. And then finished the holiday by seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers last night and, just wow! They were on absolute fire and the crowd was really going for it. Incredibly loud for a stadium gig as well.

I'd definitely go back.

The traffic between leaving Mordor, and everyone trying to get in is ridiculous. The crowd management is invisible this year.

This was the worst thing for me. People pushing to the back and from the back to the front at the same time at the same place...

My top 5 from weekend 1...

- Fred Again.., Beach House, The National, Jamie xx, Idles

I think. I could easily change that again shortly. I didn't have any major disappointments on a musical sense, luckily. Wet Leg wasn't amazing, I didn't enjoy Gorillaz but that was just down to my crowd experience, not the band. But those are pretty mild complaints in the grand scheme of things.

Few pics turning up on my socials of friends landing for weekend 2. Im getting v jealous again.
