I think we just used only-apartments last time.

Place was grand, guy who owned it was a wee bit strange

is there a resale for this, does anyone know? i've never needed to explore that option before.

mate had just decided over the weekend to have part of his honeymoon there and then when he got back he'd found it had sold out.

there's day tickets obviously but doing it that way is extremely pricey.

Even though they said its sold out, they had initially said that the price would go up today, so maybe theres another band of higher priced tickets for release today? Its hard to work out what theyre on about sometimes, worse customer communications than EP

Also, the Friday day tickets are gone (Radioheads day) so that idea is out the window

and yeah its a great festival but prior to going i could never work out what the fuck was happening half the time either.

Weekend tickets are completely sold out. The price increase would have happened if tickets were still available but they've sold out while at the lower prices. There isn't a resale as far as I'm aware.

I follow their Facebook and Twitter and there's also a Primavera thread on the Drowned in Sound forums which is handy for getting information as well.

They just posted this

Due to the high rate of activity on the secondary ticket market for Primavera Sound 2016 in Barcelona, we recommend Seatwave as a platform for the safe exchange of full festival tickets and day tickets between private individuals.

Is everything on there at face value I wonder? A few of my mates still need tickets.

Any lineup recommendations? Been working my way through some of the lesser known acts.

Really like Unsane. Kinda really early Soundgarden

don't know how 'lesser known' they are but i would be checking out daughter, beirut, savages and julia holter.

there's a big buzz about floating points at the moment but i have yet to listen much to them.

Floating points is decent, I dunno if you're into that type of electronic music though. He's been around for a bit but I only recently did some reading about him and he's apparently a very musically talented guy, classically trained.
