Wow, just thinking about to try this Madrid Primavera next year. So, you are not recommending this venue? How about Mad Cool, is it a good festival in Madrid with a good location?

We did Mad Cool in 2018 and 2019, it's a bit of a trek from the city centre but we've always managed to get home ok.

The line up is normally very good.

So... I see at BCN pages I am supposed to quarantine for 7 days, though my flight is at Sunday. A little confused on what to do, play stupid or... 

Go home dude, there's a reason flights still have mandatory masks but not negative tests; so you can get home. You can stay but I promise you several people on your flight home aren't. Just sanitize your hands a lot and keep em to yourself as best you can.

Yeah, I just noticed Spain quit the 7 days quarantine rule for mild cases in march, and the country I am going to have no quarantine rules at all. Both countries have decided to live with it. If it stays mild and I get better I will go home, will be careful with masks and so on of course.

100% agree. Be carefull, but go home and get well.

Btw, just had one of my favorite meals ever in Barcelona tonight. Els Tres Porquets in El Poblenou. Just fantastic from the local wine to the insanely good meatballs, peppers and creme bruleet cake(?) For dessert. Highly recommended.

Lovely stuff by Interpol except for the lady behind us off her nut crying the whole way through and then screaming for them to play The Specialist after every song.

They have never EVER played that song.

I mean, I get it. I think that might be in my top 3 Interpol songs, but the only time I've seen it was when they did the 15 years of TOTBL tour.

Two friends tested positive today. One definitely caught it during weekend 1. The other tested positive after arriving in BCN 48 hours late after major flight problems. Both have flat mates with them in their Airbnbs who have no idea how to isolate and can't afford to get other accommodation. What a mess!

Incubation time for the omicron variants are short about 1-2 days. So I am pretty sure I picked up mine at one of the indoor shows, those events are super spreader events for sure. But that is fine, I have chosen to live life without fear and get this shit done if needed.

Got hounded out of the queue for Apolo (2) at 1am. Physically pushed my partner and said they were closed, shepherded and shouted at everyone to get out of the street.

Meanwhile there was still an act playing til 1.15 and Giles Peterson (who we were queuing for) wasn't due to finish til 3.30. 

 

Just walked back past and the queues are back again.

 

Awful awful awful. Wasn't even a big queue. Just typical that just as the (our) festival is ending they finally find some kind of crowd control, if only to scam people out of gigs they're eligible for.

Two friends in our group fell ill Monday & tested positive today. I've gone from scratchy throat to very cough-y quickly. Just went through covid the first time a month ago & fear I've managed to somehow catch it again?! Could be a cold. The last week of exhaustion, too little sleep  & a lot of Gizz was bound to catch up. Time will tell soon enough if I need to extend my stay & reschedule to my flight back home to the states.

Speedy recovery to all.

seems 2manydjs have been moved to directly after charli on bits and now clash with bicep. bad boy chiller crew until 6 also on the charli stage. 

They try to push as many people as possible to Bits. Many Bits-people have been at Mordor in WE1, as the walk to Bits and back for just one concert or two (and missing a few others at the same time) was a no-go. That's why Mordor was overcrowded.

Top 5: Gorrilaz (show of the weekend), Fontaines DC (the next Arctic Monkeys), Pavement (for pure nostalgia), DJ Harvey (MAGICAL sunset set and best crowd ever) and MYD (sunrise set, we felt like the most fortunate people in the world experiencing that).

Amazing weekend despite the hitches.

Could be a cold. I’ve got the similar symptoms but COVID self-test came up negative.

seen him many times but this was extra special. something about the timing, the stage, his curation. everything worked. met a guy from US in the toilets who told me he came over from the US just for this set!

It is a possibility with the new ba.5 variant, unfortunately. Especially in those countries where BA.1 and not BA.2 dominating the winter wave (south africa, spain, portugal, israel, us, ...). A month ago in US it was most certainly the BA.2 variant however, then  less likely with re-infection, but still possible. Wish you a speedy recovery.

Hi all,

Long time reader of this forum (6 years now!) but never posted before. Glad to hear so many people had a great time despite the issues last weekend. It was our 4th PS and all of our group had a great time, despite everything being much harder now we're in our mid 30s 😐

So jealous of everyone getting to go at it again this weekend, the lineup is great once again.

I have a small favour to ask of anyone attending this weekend if anyone is feeling kind. I attempted to get myself one of the pink Primavera Sound 2022 tshirts with the full 2 week lineup on the back at the main merch stand last week but by the time I got round to it on the last day, they only had XXL left. I'd be a size L, possibly XL at a stretch for wearing as oversized.

If anyone feels generous and has time to check it out for me, if they have either L or XL in stock and fancy picking one up for me then posting it on when you get back home to the UK, I'd be happy to reimburse for the T-Shirt and postage plus a little extra for your trouble of course! 

Anyone willing to take me up on the offer drop me a message!

Despite the very Covid-like cough I've developed, my LFT came up negative this morning. 

Think I need to learn to not push my body quite so hard now I'm the wrong side of 30. Something for me to work on.

There's probably a ton of other bugs going around too, to be fair. We didn't make it into any of cituat gigs so reckon we might have avoided whatever was going around! Get well soon.

I'm the wrong side of 50 😅, spent 3 full nights at the fest and left without a scratch. I think it's just a matter of luck...

Me and my gf had Omicron 9 weeks ago (presumably BA2) and we both had symptoms for at least 4-5 days before testing positive, the lateral flow tests aren't very good at picking up symptomatic Omicron, unfortunately. Obviously there are other bugs (I got one the week before Prima) but it just feels impossible to know at this stage. If I get any symptoms here in Barca I'm just going to mask up around people.

Yeah, we had the same experience with omicron to be fair. I had symptoms for a good few days before finally getting a positive.
