Primavera 2018


#1241

I wasn’t a fan of the ASAP Rocky set (it seemed like every song either started or ended with gun sound) although I was pretty worn out by then.


#1242

Did anyone catch flamenco-man Capullo de Jerez in the Auditori on Thursday? I absolutely loved it.

Topped off at the end when he had an audience member chuck him a Real Madrid shirt, so he could wave it vigorously and sing about his team :grinning:

Reminded me what the Auditori programme brings to the festival. Seen some great stuff in there other the years.


#1243

Absolutely pissing down in Porto today…


#1244

I think that’s it for rain this evening (fingers crossed)!


#1245

A soggy afternoon but held up well for the evening. Twilight Sad & Lorde utterly tremendous tonight. Left pre MCDE at the wishes of our group, but the sound in bits was unbelievable, thoroughly impressed


#1246

Cool that they have a Bits stage in Porto now. Line up looks generally top too


#1247

Yeah - good point. The water seem to have dried up completely on the Saturday - 2 washing areas and 1 drinking fountain were without water anyway. Also petty about the bottle top rule - you can walk in with a plastic bottle of drink but the lid is not allowed in. Seems a purely commercial decision. Minor quibble, mind


#1248

That incredible Mogwai set is now up:


#1249

Fuckin’ wish I was there don’t I? :cry:


#1250

Oh fuck, gonna re-live this while I have my tea.


#1251

This clashed with The National…only big clash of the weekend for me but absolutely gutting!! This sounds fantastic.


#1252

I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to the festival again but I really enjoy reading people’s reviews every year.
