Shall we start the 2017 rumour mill? Yeah, fuck it, why not.

Yello. Yep, I reckon they'll get the Swiss bastards. This was suggested to me pretty much the week after Primavera Sound 2016 ended, and at the time it sounded ridiculous. Now, much less so.

Swans. Touring that time of year, finishing off the current phase of Swans, so makes sense. See also anyone else doing that Transmissions festival in Manchester at the end of May (The Fall, Loop, Royal Trux, TINThisHeat).

British Sea Power...well, they've played before and there'll be a new LP to promote...

As has been noted elsewhere by Blackout, we've passed the Primavera Sound Equinox - where the last one is now further away than the next one. Huzzah! And the promoters must know this too, as they've posted 20.1.17 up on their Twitter feed (and presumably elsewhere). Line up announcement date, I guess. Rumour mill is suggesting Bon Iver, The XX & Smashing Pumpkins. Excellent, I was hoping to avoid the main stages in 2017.

Or...maybe they'll announce the line up today.

Yes to Bonnie Langford & The XX, no to Pumpkies & Yello.

Timetable is out (on the app). I'm only doing Saturday - no major clashes, I'll trade in some of Arcade Fire for a full Wild Beasts set (probably) but apart from that...

I really should get the app sometime, bet I end up doing it on the Monday afternoon. Timings all up on individual artist pages on the main site though so you can have a stab at working it out without.

Probably the right choice given that the Rayban stage is the best festival stage in the world and Mango is, I'm guessing (given that Arcade Fire are on it) is the other big one opposite the Heineken. This does of course presume you have been before. If not, you'll see what I mean when you get there.

I realise that Primavera is a bit of a musical elitist wankers' festival in the first place and this makes me basically an elitist wanker squared, but I really don't like that whole "new" bit on the south side of the site, it just feels like it could be any old festival (obviously with better weather). Quick scan of the lineups says I probably won't be spending much time that end anyway. This is good. Put all the more mainstream stuff on them two, keep "old Primavera" weird. Though Aphex Twin on a big one... that's going to be very odd. And clashes with the Damned who are on Adidas, I'm trying to remember which stage that even is these days. I'm guessing Primavera (stage) is the same as it was last year, formerly the (new) ATP stage AKA what was the old main stage before they built the two big ones... Seat? Possibly a stage down at the Raval like least year? Need to find out, Playback Maracas are on it and they look fucking nuts. Presumably sponsored by the automotive manufacturer, as opposed to just being a big seat (though that would be good). And by process of elimination I am guessing Adidas is what used to be Vice next to Pitchfork.

Surprised to see The Wedding Present at the small Apolo, will have to get in early for that. No listings for the small Apolo Tuesday night yet though which bodes well for them sticking a Polish showcase in there as usual.

Sorry, I seem to be splurging my unfiltered thoughts onto here. Again.
I should just get the app and shut up really.

You can safely assume I've been before, if I hadn't I probably wouldn't have seen my dad for about 15 years. He lives in the environs of Barcelona, what better excuse for a visit ?
(Think you're right re Mango - I'm assuming it's the Spanish (whoops, "Catalan") retailer - my wife has been alerted re any freebies, unlikely I've said).
Seat is in the Raval at the CCCB, preferred it when the free stuff was in the city park. One of my biggest regrets is missing The Twilight Sad there in 2014. Partly made up for it, in my mind only , by seeing them at Sala BeCool in 2015.

Shellac on stupidly early, but playing on Sunday evening as well, so I can't complain too much.

Tuesday Polish showcase stuff is up on the main website now and looks as demented and glorious as ever. (And I think Australians NO ZU are currently winning the best promo picture league. In fact Thursday daytime at the CCCB appears to be entirely Australian).

No surprise that Grandaddy have cancelled. Arab Strap as replacement, though.

Going to have to miss the first of the Polish bands (look who's on upstairs!!!) but the other 2 look proper out there. Superb stuff.

Yep saw that. Should be fine to get in the small room after, it'e never massively full for the Polish stuff. Ridiculously. That's become one of my highlights....

And no disrespect intended but I was never likely to want to watch Grandaddy. Arab strap however... YASSSS! as I believe those of the corresponding nationality might say :)
