Thread: Primavera 2013

    this was my first primavera, and i find it really funny to hear that people find this better than coachella.
    at every corner you can see how influenced they are by coachella (and in part by sxsw).
    line up - yes it was brilliant, and yes better than coachella this year (Fiona cancelling made it not that brilliant in the end)
    but i always find it wrong when the best thing at a festival is the music (no matter how stupid this may sound)
    primavera to me seemed really soul-less, crowd was really really bad
    i never witness such brilliant shows with so little crowd enthusiasm
    unfortunately its because 90% of primavera line up is great reunions that attract boring 30+ crowds (like myself) that watch the show trying to keep it cool
    and everyone EVERYONE fuckin talks during the sets, Neurosis are just murdering my face and vagina, and some old spanish dudes are just talking randomly in 7th row about some everyday issuses, jesus fuckin christ

    festival needs kids, people into current music, it needs screaming, loudness and acting stupid, festivals need passion

    here there were tons of brits that were loud only during blur

    also this location compared to coachella - c'mon ??

    i know its cool hatin on coachella cause it got too big, and yes i hated this years line up, but i will always travel across half the world to witness it, rather than go to primavera, even though i am european i can go to barcelona in a heartbeat

    and i understand it will always be easier for US fest to get that big and cool, cause of a massive market and all, and i feel for primavera organizers cause i think in spain noone cares for most of the line up, i personally think they dont sell more than 45-50% of all tickets in spain...if it werent for brits and international people, it would be really really hard for them to keep the fest going

    but yes, i give them an A for trying, brilliant line up, well done guys... but location, crowd, on location details and organization etc...

    I will always go to a music festival based on the music. Not to get off my tits and party etc. Different strokes. It's not a music and art festival. I'd like some further explanation on how it copies Coachella.

    Extremely stupid. People like you are the absolute worst. I understand getting annoyed at talkers during a performance, but to think that a festival needs to have a bunch of 18-21 year olds acting like shitheads in order for it to have "soul" is just idiotic.

    Different strokes for different folks, i guess. It does sound like the crowd this years was WAY different than what I saw last last year, but overall the entire experience that I had was really incredible.

    From facebook comments, it sounds like a lot of people weren't happy with the ticket sales this morning. Something with the portal being blocked? Anyway, I'm surprised to see the price increase for VIP tickets...

    Agreed.

    And could you imagine how windy it was up on that ledge/ramp thing by the Farris wheel? Wasn't that a VIP bar up there?

    Yeah - pretty bad soundbleed in that VIP area, so it was pretty pointless. People were sitting in there watching the webcast on monitors. What exactly the fuck is the point of that?

    I realize many of you were either there this year or have been several times before, but here are some crappy pics from my iphone if anyone was interested.

    The Knife in the middle of their weird choreographed aerobics dance thing. The wtf? look on some people’s faces was pretty entertaining.


    Just after Apparat’s Krieg und Frieden set inside the auditorium (really fucking good by the way)


    One of the beer backpack guys running around.


    Deerhunter


    Don’t remember who this was




    misc. Barcelona






    Good times overall. Worth going back.

    yes.

    I was a little apprehensive after Josh left, but the new guy holds up. Although "Nothing Ever Happened" wont be played. Bradford is currently into this 1970's American punk vibe (dyed his hair black, etc.) He wore a dress at the festival, but didn't at the Apollo gig later on. They opened with "Cover Me (Slowly)/Agoraphobia" at the festival and at the Apollo they opened with "Cryptograms". The rest of the sets were mostly Monomania tracks. One of the bigger crowed pleasers was "T.H.M."
