Yo, Phier! Here's a link detailing what concerts you'll need reserved tickets for. Suede in the Auditori, the Hidden Stage and LCD in Barts are the ones in question.

Is the festival site the only place you can exchange ticket for wristband?

Yep. Best to get out there on the Wednesday as the queues are fucking murder on the Thursday.

Just checking the route and if we land on time and get a taxi we should make it for Suede. It'll be pretty steep for a taxi but fuck it

Ah yeah, it'd be worth it. Also at least then you have the wristband and card and don't have to queue the next day.

Getting bit excited now.

I'm about a ten minute walk from Sagrada Familia. Grand out.

If you manage to stay up for the trains that'll be good going. The queues for the buses are usually fairly bad so I'm planning on just walking it on the Thursday and Friday nights.

Staying in Avinguda de Les Corts Catalanes. Google maps tells me thats 35 minutes walk to Parc Del Forum. That sounds a bit too good to be true.

Should be fine with the right food* and pacing.
I'm surprised noone's talking about 2-dayer sessions (bad idea).

* speaking of which, with stage names like Heineken i don't have much faith in the food/drink options. ??

Wouldn't even think of attempting any kind of rollover session over there, I'd probably die.

Yeah, drink options are fairly limited. Pretty crap beer and various vodka + mixer drinks that are all a bit more expensive than normal Barcelona prices. I remember absolutely nothing about the food, which suggests it was all bog standard.

I stayed in Poble Sec last year and the previous time I went to Primavera. It's actually grand. If you can get a taxi they can take the motorway up the coast road to the festival, it's only about 10-15 mins to the festival and not expensive at all

The area is deadly as well, loads of cracking little squares
