Primavera 2018


#601

Poble Espanyol is nostolgic for me because that’s where the entire festival used to be held when I went to Primavera for the first time in 2004. On the Thursday all the acts were Spanish except for Pretty Girls Make Graves.


#602

Gearing up for my 15th Primavera in a row \m/


#603

Hello, I can’t go to this anymore so I have a ticket for sale if anyone is interested. A bit cheaper than the tickets now because I bought it in October


#604

Not buying tickets but must compliment you on that excellent username.


#605

Huh, weird, are they announcing the hidden stage one by one this year? No big surprise but Belly are playing


#606

Looks like they are going to milk it by dripfeeding names all day.

That said, Belly a great add. Saturday looking ridiculously stacked.


#607

a great addition, but wasted on the hidden stage playing a short set when they would draw a big crowd at either ray ban or the prima stages.


#608

Yeah, agree.


#609

Wasn’t Tanya Donelly in the Breeders? Wonder if she’ll join them onstage the night before…


#610

Lee Fields!!

Primavera Sound

Just now ·

This is what the Heineken Hidden Stage line up looks like after today’s two.

More news soon!

They really are dragging it out this year :frowning:


#612

A bit idiotic. Who will be that excited about other names which will include people like Yves Tumor.


#613

Is it gonna sell out this year? Sales seem to be much slower than the last couple of years (though it rarely sold out before then)


#614

I really doubt it will sell out this year


#615

Was thinking we might get a lot less “unexpected” stuff as a result. No biggie though. Last year was overdoing it if anything


#616

I suspect the Unexpected acts have been booked for a long time and I doubt there will be major budgetary constraints.

Would expect 2 medium size names and one bigger name.


#617

Kinda weird if sales are slower, especially given the absence of Glastonbury. Wonder if it is because of APE?


#618

Lack of 2 or 3 additional big names. Price. Doubt APE is a problem. It’s international after all. Mad Cool might be a bigger issue and they stole a march over Primavera. Primavera also has a larger capacity this year.

It might not technically be sold out this year as has been often the case in the past but will probably be not far off it.


#619

A larger capacity?! I did not know that…

I think there is enough big names compared to previous years, but maybe they are a bit too diverse this year?


#620

Yeah you might be right. I think it’s only a little larger but there is a new (beach) stage after all…
