Attending the double weekend was so perfect in theory but almost impossible to enjoy fully the last days. I had to limit myself and missed plenty of shows the last two days that seemed essential. Primavera is such a weird process/experience. Building excitement gradually for nearly a year in advance. Then euphoria especially in the beginning of the fest. Gradually enjoying less during the festivald due to fatigue/being hungover/aching feet. First few days after the festival feeling like I might never wanna go to a festival again. And now I am starting to forget the negative sides and already thinking of buying an early bird ticket for next edition. Best moments of the trip was probably the non music related, like meeting new people and skipping the ciutat shows on the Monday to go for amazing tapas and local wine. Favourite moment at the festival was definitely finally succeeding to get drinks after an hour in queue Thursday W1 and storm off to see the Armed feeling the effect of the alcohol kicking in. 

Favourite shows for me:

Mogwai x 2.

Slowdive at Razzmatazz

King Gizzard at Razzmatazz and Sala Apolo

Iosonouncane

The Armed

Fontaines DC

Idles

The Smile

Carolina Durante

Les Savy Fav at Sala Apolo

Amyl & the Sniffers - would have been even better at a smaller stage. 

The Murder Capital

Plenty of other enjoyable stuff like Rigoberta Bandini, Pond, RBCF, JAMC, Dreamcatcher and Caroline Polachek.

Biggest disappointments for me were The National and Beach House. Both great performances from the bands but way too quiet despite being about 30 meters from the stage. Even Dinosaur Jr was really quiet but that seemed to improve in the end.

Tomorrow I will be back to live music for Big Thief which means that threeway clash with Interpol and Slowdive hurts a little less. 

Beach House was too quite? Man, I was in front and I almost puked once with earplugs how loud they were lol. 

They had way better sound than Slowdive  in Razzmatazz, Slowdive was more proper for Cupra stage than Razzmatazz.

Yeah I stood at the FOH for Beach House and they sounded loud enough for me. It seemed it was mainly other stages where the volume should have been turned out. Had no problems at Binance.

Beach House were really loud at the beginning and they moderated their sound, but again they were lound. They are always loud live.

Binance is with Cupra probably my favourite stage. Sound was clear and great every time.

Dry Cleaning last night at Glastonbury "It's nice to be on a stage that isn't sponsored by a cryptocurrency"

Love it!

Haha that made me laugh too. Loved their set on the Park on TV. Wish they'd be on my week at Primavera.

Lot of people complaining about overcrowding and bottlenecks at Glastonbury this year. Will this be a theme for festivals this summer? Pack em in and not worry too much about crowd spread?

Heard that the Glasto capacity also went up from 203k to 220k, which is probably most felt on bad slotting (Wet Leg) and small stages in general

Agree that the sound quality was good but should just be louder. I was about 20-30 meters from the stage but could not enjoy because it was so quiet. And I did not have this issue for many shows unless I was very far from the stage.
