One week to go.
only 2 full days of work to go :D
tomorrow last work day!!
We arrive in Barca at 10.30 Monday and shall be bowling round the alley-ways and squares of Gracia for the rest of that day/evening! I think Sitges is the plan for Tuesday, some more cotch/sightseeing on Weds and some cotch time on Thursday before go time.
we still have a spare bed in our beautiful looking apartment in the gothic quarter.from the wednesday till the monday about£100.we are nice people
I am going to this one on my own this year, and have just reserved a room in a crappy hostel. So if a room in an appartment is going. I'm up for it. Would only need it for Thurs - Sun, but around £100 would be OK.
I am house trained
meant to send that by PM
wowza, this is so last minute, i'm still sorting accommodation & stuff but i'm going!
first time to barcelona & all too. yippee
is nice...ramblas is horrible though (unless you want some chocolate)
i'll look into that, hopefully there are still some apartments available, otherwise we can rough it in hostels...
anyone going to that extra sunday night show as well?
Of Montreal should be a treat.
Is Stiges worth a trip? I've got Wedneesday night free but have heard it's a bit tacky.
, kind of like a tackier brighton, but its a beach!
all of barcelona seems to be booked out, suffice to say i haven't done one bit of work today :(
hostels on the web the other day, when looking out of interest? Sure you can find something
on Wednesday! It's my birthday on Tuesday too, wahey!
We are in the gothic quarter as well. In an apartment with a roof terrace that we're going to fall off when drunk (so says my mam).
Can't wait. Get in.
on in on Wednesday
arriving Thursday morning. Unlike the rest of you though I wish I had another week to recover after ATP last weekend. Another 3 days of hedonism and it's my stag do! Let us pray.
you were probably unconsciously saving yourself for Primalona :)
You'll see me dancing in the mediteranean breeze, glistening in the 8am sun...
and will endevour to keep myself alive through the powers of rock n roll and alcohol before I get married.
this time has taken longer than expected. My body clock is trying to revert back to normal hours. Don't want it to, because I don't want to miss anything good next weekend. So work will have to suffer
It has taken me 3 days! But then, I did go to Scala Monday night.
Anyway, roll on Primavera!
Is anyone else staying at hostal nuevo colon?
i totally want to go to this next year...
i stayed there when i went to Primavera 2004, its a bit of a trek back from the Bus drop off point at El Triangle, i would say the area around there is a bit seedy (hookers and stuff) i cant think of any decent bars around there though, lots of tiny corner shops though !
i believe imagechange is as well, although he's running a marathon on sunday so who knows if he'll be alive...
Portastatic. I'm looking forward to watching bands I've never heard before. As great as ATP was I pretty much knew exactly what I was going to get with each act.
The Fall, Blonde, Modest Mouse, Mum, Billy Bragg, Wilco, Oakley Hall, Parenthetical Girls, G B & the Q, and assorted DJs that i've never heard of before but will enjoy immensely when drunk
Band of Horses were unexpectedly good at ATP, but i've never seen Beirut, and Gulag Orkestra is an album that has grown on me, so I think Beirut will win
GVSB, Girl Talk, Fennesz and Patton, The Fall, Blonde Redhead, Sonic Youth (ish - wish it wasn't Daydream Nation), Buzzcocks, ISIS (PLEASE PLAY FOR LONGER THAN AT ATP), Pelican, Erol Alkan!
that's a good expression! Must say I haven't encountered that before! I might have to join you 'tearing it up' as you say!
paratehical girls, mum, klaxons, nathan fake, spank rock, beirut, low, and wandering around watching bands I've never heard of.
im basically going to this for the pumpkins, the fact that the rest of the line up is ace is kind of a bonus! anyone off to see centro-matic on tuesday?
and peeps whov been to this before please tell me how ;
a; easy it is to flit between stages? (i was really lucky at nightmare b4 christmas but it was hell for some so i heard)
and b; how i can get back to placa catalunya at 3am????
Outdoor stages. Very easy to move b/w stages. Whole arena seems designed for flitting.
Getting to the Auditoria is a little bit more of a pain
Getting back to Placa Catlunya - they normally run free buses back towards the centre of Barcelona, but I would check the website for correct details
of work left before Primavera. Sweet.
in a marathon relay tomorrow. im working monday, tuesday, wednesday, then going to a work do on wednesday ngiht, and flying at 9 on thursday morning.
this could get messy.
my heart is not used to this sort of excitement
is going to be a great way to start. Woooo
then either Herman Dune or Parenthetical Girls. Decisions ,decisions, decisions.
all have a good time :D
Beirut vs Chromeo
Maximo Park vs Modest Mouse
Built to Spill vs Hot Chip vs Spank Rock
Ted Leo vs Jonathan Richman vs Long Blondes
Sonic Youth vs Battles
Grizzly Bear vs Buzzcocks
Mum vs Klaxons
that's like three quarters of the bands worth seeing clashing!
19:15 on Thurs at the bar by the left of the Rock Delux stage, before Comets come on.
There's a map of the site available on the web or here http://www.primaverasound.com/mapa_primaverasound2007.pdf
Or better suggestions appreciated
After Fenneszz & Patton at the bar to the left of the Rock Delux Stage?
In the gap before White Stripes
i'll try and remember to be there...
never been there before though so I suggest one of the 'experts' above suggests a suitable rendevous. Haddock? Roastthemonaspit??
going to this thing? i am travelling around spain by myself, and just happen to be going to barcelona on the same day (i wet myself when i saw the line-up... metaphorically, or course :-S ) it seemed like fate.
Two years ago it was €4 for a pint, last year was €3 for a half. no pint option available.
Best stick to spirits, measures in the past have been very very generous
i didn't see that (despite me posting about 3 posts down from it!)
be there or be square.
im going on my own too. post-fenneszz and patton sounds like a good idea, im sure ill be in a good mood after that!
We are sorry announce that Spank Rock have cancelled their appearance at Estrella Damm Primavera Sound 2007, due to health problems of band member Naeem. He´s been for more than one week at the hospital and the doctors have advised him to not fly out of the country.
that big wheel is new, and some kind of new tent near the entrance
at closer look, all that stuff has nothing to do with the festival
