PLUS, I just found out my hotel is RIGHT next to the site.
I LOVE PRIMAVERA.
to the open sewer smell by the main stage once again
Like ATP's hotdogs but eleven times worse.
with my beaming face when I got back last year. Apparently my hostel is one of the most debauched in Barcelona. I am a little bit worried/excited.
i'm in gothic point. i'm sure it wasn't too debauched last year, but then i only spent about ten hours there in total. i'm looking forward to seeing what all the meals are called this time .... portishead pizza? public enemy hotdogs? animal collective mixed grill?
its just off Las Ramblas. Its one of these overloaded places that sleeps 20 people in a room. I'm a bit worried though, I've heard some horror stories about 5 on 1 random humpings. Apparently this is what constitutes fun for some people.
5 years ago, it was ace. very good times.
it's my first primavera and i hope to love it as you do...
where you staying mike?
...SEE YOU AT THE BAR?
Kev's staying with me, too.
estrella damm people walking through the crowds with huge cerveza cans strapped to their backs...
expensive last year
selection was ok though, not enough for vegetarians (as ever)
not to spend much...may has been expensive. oh well.
across the road in the huge shopping centre before you go in. Much better value for money (and much better food - death by tapas).
at 3pm, spanish style. i didn't really need to eat at the site after that.
3 courses plus beer for €11? yes please.
i forgot those walking beer kegs - funny sights.
They're really close, longest walk is about 5 minutes
First time I went it was about 5%, last year was about 15%
I'm so unprepared. I take it the drinks/food prices are going to be predictably rapey? How have they been in previous years for searches? I've got a hip flask that I'm considering hiding in my gusset.
I smuggled in a liter of vodka by pouring it into 3 or 4 small water bottles, which were then inserted into the back trouser pockets, which were covered by a jumper worn around the waist. Just make sure they're not doing pat downs (they weren't last year).
I don't think they really care, as long as you're not brazenly waving bottles around on your way in.
was that expensive last year was it? I remember living on both 'White Stipes' and 'Wilco' sandwiches which were 3 euros a pop.
Thanks! Whisky down my gooch it is, then.
at the moment, hope it doesnt affect things
However it hasn't stopped raining for 3 weeks, think we'll be ok for water thanks.
Staying in an apartment off las ramblas with cat-g and others.
I'm mostly looking forward to:
dirty projectors AND MORE
Might even attend the DiS Djs ;)
...Free for peeps with passes, I guess.
Gonna be breaking in my new CD wallet.
112 discs of FUN FUN FUN.
Ellen, I expect you to be on your best FUN behavior the whole time...
at 4pm on the day of the performance at the info booth. I expect nobody will see holly golightly, a they'll all be queueing for Portishead tix.
tad annoyed i'm missing the first day not sure who's playing though
heard the weather's not going to be amazing which is just barbarically unfair
I don't fly out until tomorrow morning, I am now officially excited. Why? is playing on the stereo right now.
so I know more than the first 5 tunes to get my POLITICAL FUNK ON to. I can't wait.
