Primavera Sound 2020

I had a dream: Four Tet bringing its hanging lights show to the beach area on Sunday. 

Not pricey but requires a special production (thus doing it Sunday on the beach), electronic, crowd-pleaser but not enough to sold out after 3 days of festival, it can run 22-00, already dark in June, good relation between artist and festival.

As I said, a dream.

For some reason, Gabi ruled him out very early. 

In terms of special shows I'd be very happy to dive into extreme existential angst at a The Caretaker show. Also would be stellar to see any Mount Eerie or even The Microphones set.

This year's Caetano Veloso, which was also an amazing thing to see.

He's a fantastic writer, but he can't really sing, so not as good as Caetano. Not that I'm complaining, still a great booking.

Actually Jane Birkin can't really sing either and her performance moved me to tears so perhaps being able to sing is overrated.

And the opposite goes, musicians usually don't have a clue on good music.

And what's a wonderwall anyway?

Disclosure are definitely playing Primavera. Can't say why I just know they are.

What a waste of a headlining spot... I like Disclosure but if they keep the 3 headliners per day they'll clearly take one of those spots. It feels underwhelming.

I think they could go just below that. Likely the same position as James Blake this year.

Yeah I have no idea what slot they're playing but I imagine top line. They've got a new album coming out and I think their label are excited.

Does that mean no Bicep? 

Could easily do both, as Bicep are nowhere near as big as Disclosure, although I'm pretty sure Bicep will do Sonar instead. We'll be wiser by tomorrow.

Do you know (like having a very strong feeling) or do you really know (like Massive Attack and The National)? :)

At the same time as one of the headliners will be about 5 other acts playing, and inevitably there is one that you really like so it's a blessing really. 

I'm dreading the year where I like all the headliners and have to spend the whole festival stuck in Mordor

Yeah sorry I should put a disclaimer. It's the same source as those others. I know I'm tempting fate by mentioning it here but understand if I'm wrong and there's a lynching

I don't know if David would've ever come to europe with Purple Mountains but man, what a loss

Disclosure are a bit of a meh booking. I get that they're very popular, and to be fair their first album does slap, butI struggle to get excited about seeing them live (again) and there's tons of other stuff I'd rather see take one of the top spots.

I think most will be celebrating if you're wrong about this one... :)
