    speaking of that... the missing craft beer situation on Primavera should be solved

    Nah, I don´t think so, I think it is just this years marketing jippo. The main consideration will still be if they have something relevant to offer and if they are a good live act. By coincidence this implied that in 2019 we would have a fair share of female artists.

    Yeah I have not even tried to understand the J Balvin booking, just thinking ´it must be a spanish thing´ and thats ok for me

    I am starting to believe that you are not very pleased with this years lineup, but I might be wrong.

    No, it is not, with an average coverage of 60% of the top 50 aggregated album lists there are still 200 more acts who play the festival. Though we know relevance is still probably a booking criteria, the festival would prefer an album to be release the same or the previous year. Absolutely, Ive seen people complain ´why did they not book Lauryn Hill´ but she has just been in the Nordics and is getting horrible live reviews everywhere. So instead of such relatively poor live acts we get very strong live acts as Janelle Monae, Solange, Robyn, and even Cardi B if we are to believe the reports... I think Primavera both look at relevance, reports on how the band are good live, have ´spider ears´ to follow on what is moving ´everywhere´, and it is also a question of personal taste among the key booking people.

    Øyafestivalen 2011, I was there! They've also played some shows in Canada though. Up until 2003 they toured Europe a lot.

    For me the biggest concern is schedule clashes, as there are close to 50 names I really would like to see. Don´t understand the other concerns to be honest.

    By coincidence I once was at a pub called The Hobbit House. They only employed people with short stature, serving beers as big as their upper body. On another holiday I payed 25 cents to see the worlds shortest lady, at Coney Island. I thought it only was a joke and could not believe they sold tickets for that, but there she was. Embarrased as I was I managed to say hello before I left. I forgot to ask if he crossdressed.

    Transgender artists underrepresented? Well, we could politely ask Bradford Cox to wear the womens from the gig in 2013 if we badly have to reach that important goal of 0.5% transgender representation. Its all about appearances anyway, who cares if it is real.

    2018 has been an exceptional year for female artists, with 11 out of top 20 albums (aggregate year end list) female acts, increase that to 13 out of top 20 if you include Low and Beach House. There is no sexism in what Primavera is doing. It might be cheap marketing though, as it in reality is no sidetrack for Primavera to simply just present artists with relevance of our time, but as long it is for a good cause I have no problem with that.

    Well, from Kanyes label GOOD Music we got Pusha T, number 7 aggregated across 59 year end lists (at albumoftheyear), and president/CEO at Kanyes label. And we got NAS as a great rap legacy act (with a good 2018 record as well).

    5 out of 12 songs were from the upcoming record, so no wonder you didn't recognize many of the tunes.

    On their latest gigs Primal Scream played * 4 tracks from Screamadelica * 3 tracks form XTRMNTR * 2-3 tracks from Give Out But Don’t Give Up * 1 track each from Beautiful Future, Primal Scream and Riot City Blues That was back in August-September though, might change. My favourite album is XTRMNTR.
