what is your must see?
If anyone was interested, I made a simple alphabetical lineup to show overlaps between Primavera and Coachella.
Google Doc Link: Coachella vs Primavera 2013
I like having a printed version with me for quick reference during the time leading up to the festivals while in the car or whatever. But that’s me. I tend to forget who’s playing where sometimes.
My Bloody Valentine
The Jesus and Mary Chain
Melody's Echo Chamber
The full festival tickets for Primavera Sound in Barcelona have sold out. Day tickets for Thursday 23rd, Friday 24th and Saturday 25th May in Parc del Fòrum are still available at the price of 80€.
Apart from the main programme, Wednesday 22nd May will be the opening day with several free concerts on one of the stages of the Parc del Fòrum itself and also, Primavera a la Ciutat will offer other free activities in different spaces around the city, its programme will be announced over the next few weeks.
Is this the first time full festival pass tickets have sold out this quickly?
Yep. Glad I got my confirmation yesterday.
NEW BATCH OF FULL FESTIVAL TICKETS + CHANGE IN PRICE OF DAY TICKETS
Next Wednesday 3rd April, 215 full festival tickets for Primavera Sound in Barcelona will go on sale, tickets that have been released thanks to a re-assignment of the packets of tickets allocated to distributors.
The full festival tickets will be on sale from 12pm at the price of 199€ at the usual sales points until they sell out. Don’t miss out on this chance to get yours!
Day tickets are still on sale at 80€. From the 23rd April they will cost 90€.
this is still worth it lol
so my plans have changed such that I can now consider primavera barcelona. I was just too late for those extra all-festival passes released today though.
quick poll - do you think it is worth waiting to find a festival pass second hand, or just buy individual day tickets? there's only really one person on wednesday and one on sunday I want to see, so I wouldn't be bothered about missing those days. it would be cheaper to find a festival pass though.
bump. any thoughts - what is the likelihood of being able to find a pass second hand? the only difference it would make to me is sunday. what's the deal with that day, anyway, why so small a lineup?
The actual festival dates are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Wednesday and Sunday shows are offsite pre and post shows. Shows in the park and around town on Wednesday are early in the days, the day of the fest are free to the public. Show on Wednesday and Sunday in clubs are for people with festival passes, but lest year the lines to get in looked longer than the capacity for the club would even be so we skipped them.
Festival passes are nontransferable, so I am not sure if this is even possible. I know that IDs are required for pickup, but I can't remember if we had to have all of our names on the order, so maybe you could arrange to meet someone who has an extra pass to sell at the event.
very good to know!
bad sunday writeup + questionable transferability = day passes for me.
I didn't see your post on the 3rd, but continue to ask questions! i am happy to help, mostly because I wish i were going again so badly.
I'm wondering whether I could fly back to the US that sunday, given I would not be attending festival events. this thing goes all night, or close to it, right? I am trying to decide whether festival all night then head straight to the airport is a good idea or a terrible idea.
They program until about 6am Thursday-Saturday. I never stayed THAT late, but I got back to the condo around 4am on Saturday night. You many want to sleep in on Sunday.
the idea would be to head straight to the airport and sleep on the long ass plane flight home.
Esc 1 Wild Nothing, Tame Impala, The Postal Service y Phoenix.

Escenario 1 is the new main stage and will be called Heineken; formerly known as Mini and Llevant. Escenario 2 is the former main stage and will be called Primavera Sound. Neither stage will clash. The vice stage is being moved to near the Heineken. I'm assuming that the Ray-Ban stage will run when the Primavera Stage isn't, same with Vice and Heineken. In any case, be sure to leave Blur early to make it on time for The Knife because it's a 15 minute walk from stage to stage without post-performance bottlenecking.
Fuck I wish I was going to this
The Jesus and Mary Chain> Blur would be fantastic
As usual, the ATP stage is good enough to stay at the entire time (though there are of course still plenty of conflicts)
EDIT: Also, crazy that Animal Collective is at 3am
How do you know set lengths? Estimates? Or is that info listed somewhere...
They never announce end times, so those are estimates. Seem about right, give or take 15 minutes. The weird thing is that Do Make Say Think and Bob Mould are scheduled too close together. The clashfinder has 5 minutes of downtime between them, which can't be right, so either Do Make Say Think is doing a very short set or the ATP stage times are messed up.
There's a big gap on the pitchfork stage, too.
Why is it crazy animal collective is at 3am. Seems normal to me.
Well, my only experience is from last year and they didn't have acts that large playing that late. it was almost all edm/DJ stuff that started at 3am or later too.
Friday's times will be up tomorrow, apparently.
