    Okay, we’re just going to ask … what does ‘primavera’ have to do with Spain? Isn’t it an Italian thing?

    Whatever …. Primavera Sound is one of The Majors, an 11 on the Glastonbury Scale, attracting crowds 200,000-plus music lovers. Everyone has played Primavera from the Pixies to Radiohead to Kendrick Lamar. Dozens of acts each day.

    This year, the festival’s nineteenth, Primavera runs from 27 May to 2 June. The big names include pretty much every act on the planet – Names and newbies – from every genre including Nina Kraviz, Cardi B, Tame Impala, Solange, James Blake, Mac DeMarco, Denis Sulta, Guided by Voices, James Blake and a hundred acts we’ve never heard of.

    The format is a bit confusing, with three nights (27 through 29 May) at one venue, la Ciutat, then the main festival acts 30 May through 1 June at a different venue, Parc del Forum. Then back to la Ciutat for 2 June. (Here’s the full daily schedule.)

    Full-day tickets start at 195 euros and you can get yours here.
