This was posted on festivals. I cannot take credit for the translation. New stage (for now called Chiringuito) in the same sand on the beach, djs, rock groups, pop, you can eat and bathe. -Do not come Pearl Jam (just in case someone doubted it), or Jane's Addiction -No Pavement, maybe next year. -Not either Roni Size (the live he does now is a tease anyway). -My Bloody Valentine does not release disc, it's Kevin alone. -Ni Fugazi or the Galaxy 500 looks like they're going to play again. -Compare the sign with a locomotive, with a lot of muscle, compact. - There will be metal, the same number of groups as always. -The National almost confirmed. - Maybe Lorde? Mura Masa? -They know names: would you like Mica Levi, John Zorn (seems difficult), Bombay Royale? -Ark? He has never been and they like it. -No Iron Maiden or Metallica because it's hard to set the stage. -Gary Numan already came. Scott Walker impossible, the Chromatics do not play because they have moved with the seal. -The Cars do not touch, the NIN have already been, like the Horros, Badalamenti complicated. -The Cocteau Twins seems impossible. For now there is no group that plays an entire album. -Repeat Primavera Club bands. -It seems that the Artic Monkeys do not. -Robert Wyatt would like it. -A pair would like NOFX. -Morrissey one year of these falls. -Cartel very advanced but they have many things to confirm with the groups. The announcement of the poster is being recorded this weekend. Possibly before Christmas is the poster. -Gabi says that the poster is milk, that there are many bands spinning and that it will be successful. -They try to fix the floor of Mordor. -With the Chiringuito the festival will grow in size a little.
Are we all just assuming that Frank Ocean isn't going on a spring makeup tour of the fests he cancelled last year now that he has a show ready? Or at least playing the major ones like Prima?
This fest is also very reluctant to book repeat headliners and Cave/Bjork/The National have all headlined since 2012. So it is a little odd since all three are looking likely and I can't imagine them demoting any other than maybe a shared on one day (with someone like Frank).
Someone on facebook made this comment. Is this true from elsewhere on the internet? If so, that's probably 5 of the 6 I'd imagine -
"It’s partially leaked! Björk Nick Cave the National Sufjan Stevens Queens of the Stone Age.."
QOTSA are playing Mad Cool and Gabi said Sufjan won't tour in 2018, he's got other projects on his mind or something in that mold. Bjork, Nick Cave and The National are all playing that weekend in Europe so it makes sense.
Furthermore, Nick Cave is confirmed to play NOS Primavera by the Portugese media and Gabi pretty much said back in May that The National are confirmed for 2018.

It just goes to show the gap in expectations between US and European fests that a top line of The National - Björk - Nick Cave could be considered underwhelming. I'd buy immediately if this fest was anywhere near me
