I know there's another thread somewhere but does anyone know when we're likely have an updated line-up?
we're getting the entire line up on Jan 23.
on Primavera TV (youtube). Starts at 7pm on the 23rd (CET, I assume).
most of the Field Day lineup
can anyone remember how the festival is structured day-wise? I only went to Porto last year and can't remember how the Barca one is done. I don't know which day to arrive, really - are the full days Thursday, Friday, Saturday?
Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
Last year they had some good bands on the Wednesday (Wedding Present, Walkmen, Black Lips), it was a free concert in the centre of town with loads of people selling cheap beer. Definitely worth going if you can.
Possibility of missing decent stuff outside the main arena on Weds and Sun evenings.
Some other smaller stuff earlier in the week - less essential.
Past couple of year you had The Walkmen, Caribou, Mercury Rev, Richard Hawley, The Wedding Present... plus several good smaller bands too.
It's not the end of the world if you can't make it, but it's always good fun & free. Worth taking an extra day or two off for it if necessary.
A few of them play at the main event (Thu-Sat) too. (Caribou / Mercury Rev a few years ago for example).
Still though, I agree, I wouldn't miss the Weds and Sun events personally.
That was the case in 2011, anyway. It might be at a different venue now.
Last year. It was a park in the city, and entry was open to anyone. Don't know what they're doing this year though (in 2010 it was in a theatre, so a different venue again).
Last year they had 2 venues for the opening (Wednesday); the city park and Sala Apollo/Apollo 2.
Apollo shows started around 8 I think and went on till late and had acts like Chairlift, Kindness, Cadence Weapon, Beach Fossils some of who did not play the main days.
