Midnight on Thursday.

Be careful this year though as there's a suggestion of partial strikes going on over the Primavera weekend. Must confirm what's going on there.

Thanks for the heads up. Could be a right ball-ache, that.

The talk on the Primavera forums seems to think the strike will go ahead. As in the main reason they are striking is because the festival is on and they know itll be a balls

Wonder what kinda set PJ Harvey is gonna play. First 3 albums are so good, yet she hardly plays anything off them. Newer stuff, not a fan

Watching a bit of Radiohead on periscope (their first gig is tonight)

Good set so far! The non AMSP stuff has all been good (Is saying songs on a setlist considered a spoiler? lol)

Probably is by some so I'll spoiler it.
Good set but very heavily loaded with newer stuff (2 songs from the 90s, 5 in total from the the first 5 albums). I'd love them to drop Morning Mr Magpie and Daily Mail for some older tracks. Those two aren't even stand outs from TKOL sessions IMO.

With that kind of setlist I'm happy with my decision to go to Dinosaur Jr./Tortoise instead.

Tonight's set was amazing. Praying that'll be more like Primavera.

Can't believe that. It's going to be nuts. Really hope I manage to get a reserved ticket on Wednesday.

The LCD gig in Barts on Tuesday is one. Some of the gigs in the Auditori (Kamasi at least) and the Hidden Stage too. I have no intention of going to either the Auditori or Hidden stages at any point but it'd be worth making sure for yourself how to get into those stages.

LCD gig is free, just requires you to reserve a ticket on the website. Unsure about the Auditori or the Hidden Stage.

But if the LCD gig is Tuesday, what's a "reserved ticket" doing on Wednesday?

Phier, your reading comprehension is appalling at times! I said this Wednesday, i.e. today. You have to reserve your ticket for it today otherwise you're not getting in. Rusty/SB mentioned it in his previous post.

The forecasts seem to have settled on 21/22 degrees and mostly sunny with a couple of showers. That'll do pig, that'll do

Ah, good shit. That's grand by me. Shorts for the daytime, bring a hoodie for the nights. Sorted.
