Does anyone know what the current situation is regarding weed in Barcelona? I don't mind a drink but would much rather have a smoke in the evenings watching bands, than get drunk and messy. It's a long old slog through the night and I can't drink like I used to!

I know the cannabis club's are still a thing but I heard a rumour that they're no longer allowed to provide membership to non nationals? If that's nonsense however, does anyone have any recommendations and advice through experience?

I don’t think the point about non-nationals is true at all, maybe smaller clubs have their own rules but the likes of The Bulldog is open to all. Membership is about €20 and lasts the year.

 Oh sorry I missed that!  Yeah me too, buzzing I won’t have to drink beer/lager!

Oh no I didn't mean you should have seen them - it was quite a few pages back! 🙂

Just expressing my solidarity for another cider drinker. Was a concern for me as I fucking hate beer.

God, power to you if you can smoke until like 4am without collapsing. I'd be written off. 

I really can't imagine it's hard to find weed in Barcelona, big part of the culture there from what mates were telling me who stayed for a few years. 

For me it helps to stop me drinking so much if I can switch to weed for a bit in between. It tends to slow down my drinking.

Haha, trust me, it will very much be in moderation! I remember last time I went in 2016 I got smashed on rum cocktails before LCD and just wanted to go back to my hotel by the end of their set. Definitely don't want that happening again! It's more a case of having a smoke early evening, then as things ramp up later on just steady drinking without already having 4/5 pints inside of me.

Fair play, I very much fall under the "beer before bud, in the mud, bud before beer, in the clear" rule - I'm buggered if I'm already a bit drunk and then smoke! 

But yeah I'll definitely the curbing the drinking for this one. Never mind how much we already spent on this thing without going into 7.50 pints, I'd just be beat by the time the headliners finished and I wanna check out Shadow / Caribou / Disclosure for sure.

It seems like it's this person. Not sure why he needs the fanfare or why he looks different to his picture. Or why he deserves the fanfare for that matter.

A bit suspicious, even...

Think it’s actually this person. Still doesn’t make much sense to me though…

Yeah moderation is going go be the key for me here. Which I am... not great at.

Ah you're right. Does seem like a real person.

It's stuff Primavera have done in the past like "Society Fun Lie" that have made me a bit paranoid.

Their face being blurred out in all the Instagram photos and seemingly only having one song with less than a thousand listens on Spotify is still suspicious as fuck, especially if Primavera is bigging them up with their own announcement. Somethings going on….

Likewise. I've got Glastonbury as well a few weeks later so it's going to be interesting to see how un-match fit people are after two years of no festivals!

For me he's Bradford Cox from Deerhunter, he must be somewhere in Barcelona.

Whilst I wish it was that man, I get the sense it's just some new trap artist with a tik tok following. Seems to be linked to La Zowi and I suppose Primavera are promoting him at the festival as they are promoting him more generally

Sure, I was clearly joking.

I don't know if you guys know about the Italian project Liberato. No one knows who he is but everyone knows that big names of the Italian music establishment are involved in it and he makes some kind of urban, latin, electronic, autotuned pop.

Quimera looks like a similar project to me.

Wow good for you! I don't think I could manage both.
