Loved my time at my first Primavera - stayed out in the Horta district which meant it was an hour to get back on the 5am metro but still a nice place to stay.
Thought the festival had waaaay too much advertising which annoyed me a little but the stalls selling prints of gigs posters were very cool.
Going to rate the acts I saw (probably missed a few but so be it).
Starcrawler - 6/10. Found them a bit try hard for my liking.
Spiritualized - 9/10. Fantastic gig and loved the venue.
Belle & Sebastian - 8.5/10.
Hinds - 8/10
The Twilight Sad - 9/10. Difficult to watch in places, James Graham is clearly still struggling with the passing of his friend but it was a set with a lot of beauty in it too, in particular the Frightened Rabbit cover.
The War on Drugs - 8.5/10
Bjork - 9.5/10. Thought she was absolutely brilliant, that version of 'Human Behaviour' is awesome.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - 8/10. Thought I'd enjoy it more but think I was a bit fatigued from Bjork's set which wasn't the easiest in the world to get into.
Nils Frahm - 8/10
Waxahatchee - 7.5/10
The Breeders - 6.5/10. I love the Breeders but they're always a bit shambolic live somehow.
Father John Misty - 9/10
Mogwai - 8.5/10
Ibeyi - 9/10. My real discovery of the festival, they were great.
La Banda Trapera Del Rio - 8/10. A bit of a punk throwback but a lot of fun :-)
Charlotte Gainsbourg - 7/10
Idles - 10/10. One of the very best things I've seen live with a raucous crowd. 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' was a laugh out loud moment.
Ty Segall - 8/10
The Black Madonna - 8.5/10
Car Seat Headrest - 9/10
Ariel Pink - 3/10. Absolute bollocks of the highest order.
Slowdive - 8/10
Lorde - 6/10. A bit flat
Arctic Monkeys - 9.5/10. Once the people expecting the first album in full had left it was perfect, Alex Turner has become a brilliantly charismatic frontman and the new material is great.
Public Service Broadcasting - 8/10.
